Don't have any vids or pics, but I went twice and thoroughly enjoyed my rides both times. Got lost once or twice, but someone was always along to help me out, and it added to the adventure. Beautiful scenery too.

Never done this ride before. So it's 750 miles, 2 days correct? This must be mostly paved right? Even good easy gravel 375 miles a day is a BIG day! Is it 375 miles a day? What's the road mix, how much paved, gravel, log roads, 2 track?

I should ride my GS or 690 KTM?

Call the promoter to verify, but I understand there are a number of routes to choose from with differing terrains/road surfaces.

the impression I got is that there are about 5 different 150 mile options and you choose one each day based on what type of terrain you are interested in.
