CDR trip advise?

I plan on doing the CDR in July of next year work permitting. I would like to get some advise on a few questions.

1) KTM 690 Enduro R or a smaller dualsport?

2) Nort to south or south to north?

3) Packing lists?

4) Hard or soft panniers?

Any ifo from someone who has done the route would help. I am also collecting gpx file to map the best route.

1) Doesn’t matter which dual sport you choose. Planning for gas determines how you set up your choice. There are a couple of spots where you need to go more than two hundred miles between gas stops.

2) Doesn’t matter, I chose South to North because the South start is closer to home. I hauled my bike to the start and planned to return to get my van.

3) Dr. Rock has a very good checklist included in his Mobius threads. Camping or moteling it radically changes what you carry.

4) I don’t think it matters. I chose Dirt Bagz because of cost

1. For me it was the smaller the better http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...ht=solo+loving

2. I like N to S but I don't think it really matters all that much.

3. Light for me.

4. None for me--I pack very light.

5. Bigdog's .gpx is the one I used--use search it will show up in a lot of threads.
