I have found that in the U.S. if you can get 225 -250 mile fuel range, you can pretty much adventure tour just about anywhere and not run out. John Pitts and I have done some big stretches like the "Big Empty" in Wyoming and the Pony Express across Utah. If you can make 250 miles, you'll make it. Just, but you'll ride her in. So if the S10 can do this, I'm very happy.
