I am planning on doing the Haul Road next year as well. Thinking mid to late July. Going to have parents here early July. I am also thinking about adding rotopax cans to the bottom of my bags. That along with 6+ gallon fuel tank should get myself and another bike through the 250 mile stretch on fuel. I can't do it in 6 hours though!!! I also have a 01 XR650L for sale with wolfman rack and bags.
