Were you using string plugs on the Ducati? When the hole in the tire is too big to hold a plug, try putting two or more in at the same time. Worked for me.

Thanks for the advice. I wasn't doing the repair, but I know he used up the big plugs and had to use the smaller plugs also. Heck I was ready to use some quicksteel and gum, anything that would hold the plug in.

Chelan to Hwy 20

The next morning we were up early and ready to get back on the route. We explored Chelan for a little looking for breakfast then headed out to Boyd road to find some dirt.

A farm along Boyd road. This is also where I gently laid my bike down while adjusting the straps on my dry bag. Luckily no one was around to see it.

We then connected with 3107 and checked out some views from Cooper mountain.

We got to Hwy 153 then headed to the last section before Hwy 20.

From there we rode down to Hwy 20 then to the Twisp River Pub. Had a celebratory meal then made the long haul home over the pass.

Overall it was an awesome trip. I would love to go back and run the whole route. I really got to know my bike better and saw some places that few people have seen.

Did you have a 15 t counter sprocket on the KLR? I'm debating on whether I should swap out my 16 for my up coming wabdr trip.

I ran the stock sprocket, the bike was weighted down too. It did fine for my riding style, which is to go slow and rubber neck at all the scenery.

thanks

We rode Mission Creek road (7100) through to 9712 Sunday. The washout is rideable and I did it on my KLX250s, there is a log down in the road after the washout as you are heading south but can get around it. Hit me up with a PM if you have any more questions on that route, I ride that area every Sunday.

Ducati tire

My friend works at the Wenatchee shop you got your tire from. He was telling me about this guy who was riding a Multistrada doing the WABDR that needed a tire and then I read your ride report. So I called my buddy this morning and asked if it was a white Ducati, he said yes. He told me a funny quote your friend with the Ducati asked the tech Todd there, "Is this tire a good to 130?"...."No I am serious is it good to 130?" LOL!
Anyway, great RR and might join you on Saturday on FS18 but I have my GS on this side of the mountains this weekend. Still have to run it by the wife, she just got back from working up in AK for a month.

It sounds like he was in a hurry to get back home. Im sure he obeyed the speed limit all the way home. After all he had to use his shift lever he broke when he laid the bike down.

I also heard they had a heck of a time finding a tool to remove that back tire. He had to drive all over the place to a find socket that fit it. I guess those dont come in the Ducati toolkit.

Anyways, hope you can make it tomorrow. I'm looking forward to meet some other ADV inmates.

Going South, is it passable on a loaded GSA?

I am not sure it could be done with that tree in the way. I would ride my F800GS along the creek washout (someone built it up and it is easier this year) but not sure if I would try the log with my F800, I was looking at it thinking the same thing you were.
The log in the way with a loaded GSA would be tough, I don't have the skill to do that but you may. I had to ride my friends KTM 350's up and around the log for them and I am not that good of a rider. I am sure some guys on here would tell you they could do it but I wouldn't be able to on a GSA.
Hope this helps a little. It is still cool to go check it out from the south entrance because it isn't that long of a detour if you have to turn around and go up No. 2 canyon on the suggested detour.

They usually just stay unless someone can ride in with a big enough chain saw for this one. My friend runs a saw around sometimes but his saw isn't big enough for this tree.
