Join us you will have a lot of fun and meet a lot of good people.

What are your 90/10 tires? The Scorpion Trails aren't bad on gravel and last a long time.

Bringing a KLR650

I will be riding my used but well cared for '03 KLR650. It is mostly stock with just a few accessories like pegs, Moose shifter, aluminum skid plate, larger front rotor and stainless brake lines. And the dohicky.

Run some good dual sport tires and you should be just fine.

Creek Crossings

I'll post this up again----it's on the route------and there are many more not as wide--but deep sometimes----depends
on the weather.

BigDog





Oh yeah---this is on the route also-----of course you can use the bridge if you want.
Super Teneres are required to jump tho---we'll be watching you.

Now don't you go scarin' anyone with those submarines Bigdog....

That's Ashley Creek......most times we have to skip that part because of rain.


There is a detour....which gets kind of wet too though. (See Below)

That water crossing was the most water I had crossed at the time, it felt like such an accomplishment............until a short while later we went down a road that was a creek.

Awesome ride last year, can't wait until this year!

Mark,

As far as jumping the Tenere, there is a fine line between brave and stupid. Lucky for you I crossed it a looonngg time ago.
