What bike to bring...
With such a wide range of dual sport bikes these days, and with them getting more capable all the time, A/B/C are getting more blurry than ever. I'll try to get more info on the whole trail as I only did some of it. Based on what I've seen, here's what I'd be riding:
A - My KTM 450. Don't think I could do this route on my KLR because of ground clearance and tight quarters.
B - I could probably do either but would again go with the KTM because it's a long two days and I'm not as, uh, conditioned as I once was to muscle the KLR.
C - The KLR for sure. Comfy...
Hope that helps. Would be great to ride with you again Drew! Bring the rest of the crowd!
