*: 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'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.
