Count me in and pm me with details if you need/want any help.
Ya well your not getting off that easy! All of your work is yet to come.

I got the routes and put them on Google earth. Just shows the way points.

Tried some apps for opening gpx files for free and they sucked.

I just may have to buy a Garmin or something.

Try the Motion-X GPS app. It works fine.

I rode last year. I ran a knobby front (Pirelli Rally) and a stock Pirelli Scorpion rear. It's a nice combo for this ride. I've ridden my KTM 950 in gravel with a Scorpion front. The knobby gives much, much better feel. That said, you see everything there. One of the guys in our little group was riding a Versys with some kind of pretty street-oriented tire. He did just fine.

It will depend on the weather and if you want to do the Class B roads or not. When we went, we could have gotten by on all the roads no problem regardless of tires, but I've seen photos from past years when it was wet and some people struggled on the muddy minimum maintenance sections.
