Not sure what bike I'll do it on - am seriously considering a DR200, to save on gas. I have access to a lot of good street bikes through work, so I'd rather have something smaller for off-road.

That's coming. We just might have another adult-sized rally coming soon as well.

In any case - his problem isn't the size of the bike, it's that he doesn't believe his gas gauge.

I think it would be cool to go to one of the outports and try to ride up to asphalt somewhere ... but I suspect it would be tricky as there would be no gas.

You won't have enough time to see all of NL that you can see from the seat of an R1. The province is huge - lots of road to cover, without even starting to think about off road. Just do it.
