Of course we would take someone on a lighter bike and little bike, as long as this is understood.

Some of our riders have done this ride on a Yamaha XT225. Out of all the bikes taken on this ride I was most
comfortable on the KLR. Wished I had the 530 in some sections, and the Husky in others.
Was trying to find that button that would convert the bike as I was riding but not there.

This is a great ride that is suitable for all types of bikes, and skill levels. A little more challenging on a bigger
heavier bike, but nothing real difficult. I could take my wife as pillion on this ride.

Glad to see people signing up. Looking forward to this ride.

Thank you, Big John and DirtDad, for 'splaining! Makes sense now.

Maybe next year, calendar and more experience willing, we'll try for it --if there are actually any openings that is!

11 Husky TE250
