Nobody from TX has signed up yet. Right now I plan on trailering from Phoenix, but I don't have a truck/trailer lined up yet. If you sign up and have a rig, I could have you pass through PHX and pick me up. I'd split the whole trip from TX with you.

I may just rent something too.

Big singles (DR, KLR, GS, Hus Terra, etc) that can cruise the transits at 70 seem to be the best, but the most popular rides are mud capable twins. I've listed a Yamaha WR250R on my entry, but I have a big single as an option.

So, I don't have a suitable scoot right now, so whats the optimum size for a guy that just wants to complete it and smile lots along the way? Something like a GS650 or a KLR, right? Is there a prize for the rider with the biggest ear to ear grin?

$2,000 sounds like a great deal considering all accommodation is included.

Anyone taking a truck/trailer up from Texas?
