Thanks! I really enjoyed reading your ride report. I've been thinking smaller myself lately. Recently was talking to a shop about a 250 dual sport and they repeatedly kept telling me I need to get a 650! Several years ago I did a three day trip on a Ninja 250, which is quite a change from the Ducati Multistrada I usually ride. I had a blast on it!
I rode through your area years ago on a Honda 750. Thanks for showing me the sights I missed back then
