Thanks, liviob!

Yes, we were mostly offroad.
Jeremy and I are both new to 2up and I am new to ADV riding period. And we both have a little crazy in us. So, I am not the best measure on what's doable 2up.
But yes, we were able to do the trails for the most part 2up except for, as you mentioned, the narrow/steep/rocky/loose segments - particularly on Black Bear and Tin Cup.
I walked briefly about 5x in Colorado. About the same in UT.
We did get very lucky with the weather & trail conditions.

Total trip mileage was about 2,000 in 12 days.
