Took the wife for a spin, our first 2-up on the 950. She loved it and I wish I could bring her on this ride, 2-up. She is an administrator in public education, so she will be working when this ride goes down.

But, I will need to decide.....do I do the QS with the hard Gobi Cases....or do I do the ride with my Wolfman Bags?

For many reasons, we won't be able to make this ride, but I'm curious as to the requirement for bikes > 600cc? I don't mean at all to start anything negative about the ride because I applaud what hard work RMAR puts in on these routes and rides! I'm just wondering.

I'm too noob and slow (ok there are two of the five reasons) for a ride like this but it sure looks like a blast for nmtrialsguy and I to try pieces of on our own sometime in our own backyard! But I have a CRF250L so its engine is too little--so even if I were a good, fast rider, I wouldn't be able to keep up with the big bikes, is that it?? I just would like to understand for the possibility of future rides (although I imagine this ride'll be full from repeat riders for the future ).

On the other hand, the 250L *is* over 300 lbs, so maybe there's a loophole?

cheers

We are expecting some of the big boys: BMW 1200 GSA, Tiger 1200, etc.... The pace and the route will be built for these riders. Guys on lighter bikes that are faster offroad....lcould be bored, so we are trying to set the right expectations.

Of course we would take someone on a lighter bike and little bike, as long as this is understood.

I have done this ride so far on:

DR650, KTM530EXC, 06HuskyTE610, KLR650.

Some of our riders have done this ride on a Yamaha XT225. Out of all the bikes taken on this ride I was most
comfortable on the KLR. Wished I had the 530 in some sections, and the Husky in others.
Was trying to find that button that would convert the bike as I was riding but not there.

This is a great ride that is suitable for all types of bikes, and skill levels. A little more challenging on a bigger
heavier bike, but nothing real difficult. I could take my wife as pillion on this ride.

Glad to see people signing up. Looking forward to this ride.

Here is a link to a ride report on this ride we did in 2009.
I was on the 530. The only place where the 530 was at an advantage was when we were riding on some of the single track at Alcalde.
We won't be doing any of that this year.

Another photo teaser. Taken near the Cruces Basin Wilderness, 2008.

Thank you, Big John and DirtDad, for 'splaining! Makes sense now.

Maybe next year, calendar and more experience willing, we'll try for it --if there are actually any openings that is!

cheers
