No worries Tha Rick.....finding challenging routes won't be the issue. Dragging 300-400 lb bikes (with gear) over the routes will certainly be the issue.
I have found routes in Chaffee County where I have only gone 60 miles in 5 hrs and believe me muscling a 400 pound KLR IS the challenge!
In the grand scheme of thing's, what's it matter? Screw it! Let's ride
