Cannot wait for this...
You were probably one of the first bikes up last year and I was the very last bike up. After all the tilling by the big bikes, lets just say it was a little loose.
Don't wait up for us team KLR, otherwise you might end up in camp after dusk with no beers left.

I keep reading about some "sand hill", and now saw the pic of the big KTM stuck, but still wonder where it was. Norm, was that where the Tiger got stuck? About 5 miles from Lodore? If so, there is a go-around on the main highway. Maybe this would be a good time for the "Tough Love" speech?

There are LOTS of alternates, paved, 2 track, county road, single track... I will I was the first bike up that day, that hill was just fine a few weeks ago when we were out there bunny hunting.

RED IS ALTERNATE, BLUE IS FUN, GREEN IS MAIN TRACK

We knew that but wanted to see what the Stelvio and big KTM could do. Couple of our team mates went around the hill then left us waiting for them at the top along the highway for quite a while.

Hey come on, in all fairness, I rode back to check on you at the top of the hill.
