IN! but likely without the totally awesome Dual-Sport MX sidecar - I need more than 1 passenger and can't find a spare manly enough to do the job.

I'm sure someone on this forum will step up and hang off that sidecar with you. Cheers.

How passenger friendly is this ride? Are the tougher stretches something she could get off and walk pretty quickly through? Two-up-able on a KLR?

I think the answer depends on how good a rider you are. I saw Lafferty leave a bunch of guys in the dust in Joisey when he was two up.

All signed up! Will probably not do it with a passenger unless I magically find a KTM 990 between now and then and get some A level riding skill.

BluWolf 08-15-2011 05:35 PM
