Talking Dual Sport SM might be ok

I'm not into riding my EXC's on roads, dirt roads or otherwise. SM tires such as distanzias should be fine. My tires are barely better than most sm types. Most of the options you mentioned are likely snowed still.

If conditions are poor we may have to use pavement to complete a loop.

Yup, I go past that Sinclair almost every day on the way to work. I just realized that I'm supposed to help clean a ball field at 9, want to meet at 10:00 or just after? I'll be on a goofy looking 640. Which direction do you plan on going?

If I can chime in for a bit ... the Mine Hill Tour in the mountains above Mackay is an awesome network of old mining roads. There's far more than old dilapidated mining buildings and slag piles full of heavy metals. A couple of years ago a friend from Pocatello and I spent five days based at the Wagon Wheel Motel in Mackay, and did nothing every day but ride all over the region. Best riding I've ever done. Probably too early to get into the mountains yet, but once the snow melts and the mud dries, there are few places better.

Below is Alder Creek Road ...

Scared to take the thing off road because it is so preety and mint, but time to take the plunge ready and willing for weekend or longer rides anytime. Or just a short jaunt for the afternoon :)
