Cooper Bros. challenge

I have issued a challenge to brothers: "TTT on a large modern ADV bike is too easy. Like riding to the corner shop. 250cc or less for more adventure"
They have both accepted.
Craig XT250
Mark TW200
Steve CRF250L

Fuel range for the Honda could be an issue. Luggage capacity will be interesting.

Thank you Mark, first gear being too high a ratio is the biggest problem with roadies,
which makes it a real pain when you get up behind someone piddling around trying not to fall off or get their bike dirty,
especially on the uphill sections, that's why in years gone past, I've overtaken blokes in bad spots on the track [my apologies], just to keep momentum going,
Not one for being a smartarse but it is a buzz when ya have to overtake a 'state of the art' adventure bike on an old XS650, because they're going too slow!!!!!!!!
Cheers
Baza
