Good luck!

I've done Coke Ovens several times on a KLR although not lately. There are a couple of not-very-fun (very-not-fun?) sections. The rest is not a real problem, just rough, long and a fair bit of a workout....


I was up Montana about a month ago in the 4x4. I 'd say the "loop" could be handled on a big GS by an intermediate rider. A novice on a small moto could probably handle it. Last time I was up the leg that takes you to the east of Superior it would be grueling for most on a large machine, an intermediate not on a smaller machine, or for a beginner at all...

I prefer crossing the river near the Sheep's bridge when it's low water over that bugger of a hill...

The short trail doesn't look like this now. We ran down it a week and a half ago and it is clear and no rocks in the trail as it has been cleared by some one. You can ride up it just as easy as going down now.

Hawes Trail, where I mountain bike, has signs posted that say, "These trails are meant to be hard. Don't clear or bypass trails."

Will you wear your spandex and bike helmet on the moto ride up, or will you stow that in your hard box on the back?

Haha I'll definitely bring my cycling gear in the hard case. I might just have to get a photo of me in lycra and a bicycle helmet on my motorcycle though.

You should totally clip into your pegs too. I like that bike rack. You could get to some pretty cool places to ride.

Ya, Steezeman and I just did a quick loop. We took the apache trail to Roosevelt and the four peaks road back. It was my first ride with my new to me, ktm 950! I also have smaller bikes if anyone wants to do more technical trails during the weekdays (mon-thurs) let me know.
