? For Phoenix Riders Horseshoe Dam

Hello,

Are you able to get an unloaded 1200 GS through the walkway or a 990 ADV for that matter?

I talked to a guy wit a 950 KTM and he has done it a few times. Make sure you come down from sheeps briidge. If you do horseshoe first you will never get a big bike up to sheeps bridge. It is a nasty little rocky hill from the river bed to the bridge.

I've made it just fine with my 990 ADV w/ Safari tanks and crash bars. Better if you have a friend helping though...

It has been done many times going up to sheeps bridge. Hard, but doable and short. In those same great words, " Technically, its doable"

Who said that? oh, that right it was the Nightstalker...

Big E you are correct. I made it up on my 250. But unless you have some buddies to help drag a big bike up the hill I would rather go down the hill than up.
