Seriously though....good report.
So long as the right wrist differential is appropriate we can get along just fine. From the few times I've commandeered the DR, I've learned that she could out run me if she tried.

Been teaching her the finer points of riding in the dirt on a CRF250X. Next year's trip report will definitely step it up a notch. Stay tuned....

Mesh suits indeed. We were both wearing mesh jackets. Earlier in the summer we had been wearing full pressure suits but just couldn't handle the heat. On training missions along our local sections of the CDT we ran into some folks riding through boarder to boarder. We picked up on their gear choices and made the switch to armored mesh jackets and rain gear. Worked well for us.

Greg-----Nicely done. I encourage you to ride often and report as you've done this one. Good pictures and interesting commentary. I know the country that you covered here and have rode the same trails----and so I know what a good job you've done. Keep it up.

Oh----and one last comment in passing----My vote for the better machine would go to the DR 650 if only because Rod Currie (from http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=834987 the Sibirsky Extreme report) is quoted as saying that the KLR is the machine that does everything----badly! Ha Ha What does he know?

You say true!

PS, Sorry I didn't stop by your place on my way back from AK but was beat (rode from Salt Lake) and had serious 'horse to water' syndrome.

I really enjoyed exploring that area and I am certain there will be other trips.
It would have worked just fine. I lived in Gunnison for many years and rode that route often.
