I'm thinking of using the upper part of the PDR to get me from Woodstock VT up to Burlington. I've ridden the PDR a half dozen times or more, but I'm curious about road conditions up there. Is it still mud season? Or have things pretty much firmed up by now?

Passable on a vstrom with Heidenau's without too much of a pucker factor?

I've done the whole route, Greenfield to North Troy. Its just a bunch of dirt roads and some back roads (mostly dirt) all connected in a very scenic route. You could do this in a mini van, SUV or a Harley. Its all public roads, nothing to be afraid of. The route sheets are accurate under mile 100, after that its stops using tenths of miles. Lots of photo ops and enough places to stop for gas or lunch along the main route. Looking forward to doing it again:)

Yeah, I've done the whole route, too, a couple of times. I was just asking about mud season.

We did find quite a few slick/slimy/rutted spots on the upper half over the weekend. Most of it was on its way to drying out though, and there were only a few spots where you couldn't avoid the mud by riding close to the shoulder or in the opposite lane. Another week or two and it should all be good.

You do have to be a bit careful until they have a chance to grade it though.. there were other spots where the mud had dried into large mounds that you couldn't see until you were almost on them. Pretty easy to bottom your suspension hitting something like that.

Didn't have much of a problem with Heidenau's on a Vstrom or TKC80's on a G650GS. Tourances or Anakee's or something might have been interested in the slick stuff though.

No changes since 2012. If you've got the routes from the MOV site and have them loaded and working, you're good to go.

Can be done in a day if you're swift - best to enjoy the route up and split it in two days - some State Forests up near Montpelier to camp overnight, then finish the route and start your return home the next day. You go within a few miles of the CN border - or can ride up to the border crossing if you choose via the main road. We chose to go via Journey's End Road and ride North to the Journey's End trail Hiker Check-in in box up in the woods - we sign it as our official denotation we have successfully finished the PDR. But be warned - you may get a border patrol officer asking you questions about what you're doing up there - happened to us! The officer was however kind enough to take our picture!:

I don't on a vstrom 1000 on Heidenau K60's, but I'm also terrible at checking my air pressure, so I'm usually running low anyway.

With the abs and traction control and other fancy gizmos on that 1190, I don't think you have much to worry about. Ride your own ride and have fun doing it!

EDIT: So wait, you never ended up doing it on your two-smoke? I think you'll find it much more enjoyable on the 1190 than on the little bike. Last year when I saw that you were talking about doing it on the little bike, I thought that sounded like it would be pretty boring.
