Awesome report and beautiful photos!! We have found that 2up in the sand is truly more difficult, balance is way off because the slower we go, the more we are thrown off course-so now we go faster. We see sand, I say "Oh no", I have done my fair share of the walking. A plus with the KTM950 is the pillion seat, quite comfortable I must say, and the handles are nice for crazier terrain. It looks like you guys had a wonderful time. Happy Anniversary! Thanks for sharing.
