I was the rider with the KLR, besides the horrible suspension and ground clearance, after picking it up fully loaded a few times I was wishing I was on a 125cc. I now have a KTM 525 that weighs 250 with suspension that blows the KLRs away

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.
