Danno....I am certain you are a great rider, but this was no ride for a 955. I was pretty firm with folks about this being a 650cc ride or less. I accepted one rider on a 950SE....but he had also solo'd and completed the Baja1000....a riding monster, he is.

For 2013, the CAM1k route will once again be a bit blutal in places and times. Unless someone has a very strong riding resume, I will once again be strict with the 650cc limit and a bike less than 350 lbs. We had one KLR start the ride this year, but dropped out. The lighter, street legal enduros are a much better fit.

I just watched the video again (I watch it about once a week).....and I long for the ride and the friends. Man it was epic and I want to do it again tomorrow.
