This looks like a fantastic adventure. Unfortunately I am now in Alaska and going on a 365 day trip in a month. I have saved this to my favorites as I leave here first week of May2015. So who knows, I might make this adventure then. The area looks great.

The Wolfpack had 2 of 3 F800's that faired pretty well last year and we were the only group that followed Geeks GPX file to the "T" on Saturday. We still made camp in time for dinner, beer and all the days stories.

I'd love to join you hosers as a rider or a shag wagon, but I'll be leaving for Costa Rica on May 29th (details to follow) and am saving all my vaca days for that adventure.

Don't forget that only us, and the Rangely boys (who kick-ass), were the only ones to ride the Sunday route with 2 F800's rockin' it!

Been a few years .... BUT, I think I'm IN!

Gots to figure out how to strap the disco onto the bike. No way there'll be a Dino Run sans that baby (Bill was good enough to get it from my place last year and use it to feed you FFs while I was otherwise occupied )

EXACTLY my dilemma. I'd have to take two days off that would be otherwise spent diving... I'm a definite maybe.

In the pics I see though, I see lots of "little" bikes, would this be doable by a Tenere piloted by an idiot?

That is basically a KLR type bike, right? If I went, I would be on my KLR and would most assuredly fall into the yellow bus idiot pilot group. My skills are nowhere near the likes of most of this ride, so company would be nice.

More of a 1200GS kinda bike... when loaded, I have to unload it to lift it (DAMHIK) and I saw the rules Geek put forth...

I have a 450EXC but no plates, bags, etc...

Ouch, that is a big bike, but folks on 990's do it IIRC.
