I am going to plan on this and will probably camp somewhere(parking lot LOL).

FOF2 - Does this sound good to you other than the camping part?

I will be riding F800GS.

Thanks,

Sound good, F800 might be too big to handle when terrains changes but if u got no problem handle it with care then all is good ...

Pretty ambitious route Eddy. You better keep the group small and bunched up. You won't have any extra time for hiccups or stragglers.

Yes it is Tom u should join us to find out more, I just finished recon ride yesterday with drdfblackm we did ~ 80 miles (off-rd) of day 2, you guys are up for interesting terrains. A lots of ruts, tight switch backs, rocky uphill/downhill, hi-speed gravel etc... .Day1 is as similar. The terrains is extremely diverse and unpredictable. It should keep u on your toes now & then.

Here u go,
At the Parking lot depart point.


I took different route on 6150 that connect us to Gray Mtn Truck trail.

There was so much vibration in that ride that I lost my Road-book, and Darr. lost his Brake pedal. On the top of plateau that give on to Grey Mtn.

I memorized some points on my GPS so I was ok without my rd-book it only serve as an insurance for directions.
Because I took different route that we usually take I went and take a look that we were on the right track cause I remember that turn.

Near Anita road we did some crazy switch back and we end up at the rail road intersection (were we suppose to be anyway). Darr. is fixing his bag.

A lots of gate like this...

I would agree...those photos show you nothing....especially the big thing near that thing and having to go over that other thing down by the thing.

This is a little off topic but I noticed you are both wearing fly trekked helmets and was planning to order one! Would you recommend for all around use?

Nope...we wanted to coordinate helmets for the ride.

What I will say about them....#1....if you want one get one from Dillon at ZenMoto in Scottsdale, he is on the forums here and tell him that Darrin or Eddy or both sent you to him.

#2...They are not the best helmet on the market, but for the money it is extremely good. It fits my head very well.

#3...It is very nice to not have to worry about goggles on a long ride and you can wear whatever sunglasses you want under the helmet.

I would say try it and see...not that expensive at all.

I agree that looks like a ambitious ride for two days... But--- you know I ride like a "Slow O'l Guy".
May use some of the route for a summer trip, but add a couple days to it.
Have a great time and don't get on the wrong side of any of those locked gates!
Will be lookin forward to the report...
