*: last summer, at least. I have no idea what winter snows, spring rains, or anything else may have done to impair travel since then. But I'd expect it to be very passable on a 350...it's normally big-bike friendly.
Yeah, it's more the rider than the bike I'm worried about - seeing the tag put up on a KTM Adventure loaded with luggage made that clear. I'm OK on forest road, but not up to single track or unmaintained trail yet. Water crossings need work too - last summer a Class IV had a deep enough hole to stop the bike dead in the water (literally - I still regret not getting a picture). Given what you said, though, I can follow the gaps in the trees to see where they connect to the other roads on Google. Thanks.
