One more thing. We may have spent 3 years planning this adventure but besides the maps and GPS tracks from Sam, we have no clue what we are doing. [/QUOTE]


Don't worry. Can't say about west of OK but take your time, check out water crossings and enjoy. I did this TN through most of OK on a 990, with little dirt exp. and made it fine. I did drop it on a creek crossing but didn't look it over before crossing. Otherwise usual mud and gravel road stuff, rocky in AR but your bikes are more than capable. I used Sams tracks and they were pretty much spot on. Just be cautious...

- Some turns are actually stops but no signs or sharper than they appear
- Look ahead and or watch the speed as roads come up fast sometimes (meaning not obvious until your right on them)
- Careful through AR/OK. There are 4way dirt roads intersections without stop signs in places.
- Also, be aware of AR/OK with the gas and oil drilling. Big equipment use some of the same dirt roads.



Good luck!
