So by dual sport loop they really just mean a narrower-than-car dirt trail in a field, right? Could a moped do it? I may just wing it and leave the Tourances on.

Are the gas stops actual gas stations, or are we looping around to the start? Or maybe a gas truck where we can send cans out?

Anyone else riding a "little" bike, or should I take the 650 thumper?

From what I have read, the '13 800 forks are better than previously.

For what the Sertao is intended for, $200 for Ricors is a nice upgrade.
