I'm in too. Just got back from a big loop through northern Nevada, 9 days and 1500 miles with Dustdevil club members. I did have a need to ride back to civilization for 2 days and went back out to meet the group. Part of our track was on the TAT. Two bikes were like yours, 600 Suzuki. They do the job well.

We did lose one of our guys, Tib/fib break. This was early in the ride and our safty guy was able to drive out and pick up his bike and take him back to town and to the hospital within a few hours. His break was just plain bad luck. Bike slid out while climbing a very steep, rutted jeep road and his leg was between his skid plate edge and the edge of the rut. Low speed too.

Also, best luggage for your bike was Giant Loop bag. Good luck on your ride, we had trials, a few dead ends, comradely and a good time. You will too.
