On a moto.. yeah I could see the bike straining... No worry on the headaches etc.

Have a great adventure and bring back pics!

I did more or less the same hiking experience up to 14.500 feet a few year ago, not to much a problem.
I guess 16.000 feet just sitting on the bike will be OK as weel.

I will bring back and post some pictures on ADV forum.

Thank you all for your comments and advises.

commute every day on a 1150 GSA, and plan adventurous trip every night
