The entire trip: left at 5:10 am Saturday and was back in Harlingen Sunday at 5 PM, so roughly 36 hours. Rode about 14 hours Saturday and 6 Sunday.

650 GS did very well. 85-90 MPH on MX 40. Turns on mountain roads were no problem, plenty of uphill power even fully loaded. Off road capability is competent but limited, so if I had to do it all over again, I would pick the Dakar model. I can't imagine bringing a heavier bike given the terrain and never mind having to pick a 1200 up from the inevitable fall.
