Thank you!!!!! I will be riding your track ASAP.
We just got done with this one> http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=632804
Thanks! My goal was to make it as easy as possible even for GPS noobs.
I've actually been watching your thread and plan to ride that route possibly next year. It looks like a blast!!!

It will be a annual non-event haha. But if you come to ride it at another time I can give you the special ride! I know a lot more than I give out. We can ride several more days in the area. All I do now is wear out m/c tires, so I'm available to ride unless I riding somewhere else.

You shouldn't have much trouble but remember that you will need aggressive tires! There is dirt, rocks, creeks and small hills on this main loop.

Thanks for sharing Jeff, just the kind of riding i'm looking for. It's all good, but your A loop looks great.

Thanks for Posting this up Jeff. Kenny Dunn had told me you finished the loop and sent me this link. I lost the gps file you has shared, with a hard drive failure. I can't wait to ride this...

Dan

p.s. Really appreciate the effort it took to put this together Jeff!!!

Got to try in on my Rally Alp,

It needs some work tho.




The head bearings need replaced.
The rear wheel bearings need replaced.
Spokes rusted solid---can't tighten them.
2 of the 4 spark plugs are fouled and incrusted with oil.
Rear sprocket bolts rusted solid---I'll have to cut them out.
I can't turn the handlebars to the left---the badly routed clutch cable hits some bare wires on the ignition switch and blows a fuse.
The rear caliper is mounted crooked and has worn the pads very crooked.
The carbs are full of rusty water.
Both carb diaphrams are torn.
The front fender rubs the crash guard badly.
The choke pistons on the carbs are rusted solid and stuck in their bores---so no choke.
The throttle cables are pretty rusty and sticky.
Handguards need re-worked.
Oil disappears faster than you can pour it in.
The clutch slips really bad.
Oh---and then there's the thing about only one piston is connected to the crankshaft.

Some JB weld and WD40 and it will be good to go
Meanwhile---off to Baja on my WR.

If your bike weighs more than 400lbs. You might not make it.

Finally getting some time to take a closer look at this. Awesome. I exported 'hard5' and opened it in Google Earth. That really gives you a good idea what's going on. Come on spring!

Looks awesome alright. I'll be passing through in April. Won't have time to ride the whole route, but will spend 2 or maybe 3 days worth. Please recommend the "must do" sections for me. I'll avoid the red sections only because I'll be alone. Riding a Honda XR650L.
Thanks!

Rider info

I'm not very savvy at this or I would send you a PM. I live near you off hwy 1694 and am looking for people to ride dual sport with. I have a Klr that I've been riding a couple of years. Wouldn't try your hardest sections on it but the rest should be fine.
