We have our first inmate, needing to back out of the trip.

This is for a very good reason....and you might want to follow.

I'm kind of wishing I still had that set-up. With gas prices the way they are, It would cost me @ $800 in gas alone to trailer my DR650 out there with my truck, which I can't afford this year.

If I make it out there at all this year, it will probably just be on my street bike.

The DR650 will make it for sure! I took a 16 hour road trip on my 2009 DRZ400 and it did awesome! Hit as many dirt roads as possible but all in all, probably 70% ended up on the street. ( Sweet Cheeks on that trip made all the difference, but my rear end was still numb sometimes.
