I thought about using the xr, but not near enough tank for the run.

Looking for some advice. If I go I'll slow you guys down.
You can do it. You wouldn't slow ME down

Warning: it is incredibly beautiful up there on Camino Cielo.
Separated my shoulder there on Refugio road and then rode camino cielo. I guess I figured picking up a GS with two good arms was easy. Wanted to challenge myslf a little. Not the smartest thing I've ever done.
I need to re-ride those roads to get over my PTSD.
I'd suggest casting slightly less wide of a net and maybe not going so far south or as far north. An all day ride in the summer on some pretty techical stuff. Camino Cielo can be a bitch and so can High Mountain Road. Make sure to do those early in the day. This does intrigue me, I must say and I'll be getting some knobbies for the crash bike soon. I'm in. I could offer up a room or two in SM that wekend as well. I've stayed at that Motel 6 and we can almost match it for cleanliness here at Idea Casa.
