What are everyone's ages? I'm 60 and need to start doing some of this kind of traveling before I'm too old.

I'm 62
Bud is 68 and he had no trouble handling the 690 on this ride.
Dingweeds is 54
We had to sing happy 40th to Bill on this ride.

Bud did admittedly pack too much stuff----but it was the first time he had ever done a trip like this---------he is an excellent offroad rider and has done it all his life--------but had never camped and carried cooking gear on an offroad bike for a trip this long.
Everybody on a trip like this needs to be prepared to go it alone is something happens--and we all realized this and didn't share carrying essentials.
