All sorts of bikes can make the trip, but you will have so much more fun if you choose the right tool for the job.


Sage advice by Big John

I should have been a little more firm regarding the WR250R on the CAM1000. It was barely adequate on the high technical passes, and I found myself wishing for more CC's many times. In fact, a couple of times, I didn't think the little girl was going to make it (i.e., on the Sheep Creek switchbacks and Mosquito Pass)!
