Oh alright then...

I don't know shit ;)

I've got very little dirt experience on two wheels and moderate street experience (commute, etc). I know the desert well (although not DV in particular) but from a four wheeled perspective, so I know what to expect from the land at least. My desire is a run that won't stress my heavy pig out too much (i.e., it's not a little dirt bike, I know this, I'm not that hairdresser kid). I'm fairly adventurous but not crazy. While I don't mind a slower pace I'm not looking to stop every forty feet to take pictures.

The machine is an '05 KLR650, it will have proper tires (plan is 606s on both ends if funds work out) and a 14t countershaft gear at minimum. Stock tank so range should be in the neighborhood of 175 - 200 miles (assuming I'm getting shitty mileage).
2005 KLR 650 A bit beat up but works just fine. Powered by really angry canaries. - Actually it's a bit dead right now.
1990 DR350S Smaller. Lighter. Slower.
1985 Suzuki GS700E Some assembly required
1977 Cimatti City Bike. What, you call that a build thread? Officially stalled...
