Oh and the sand at Big Bar ferry would be a challenge.
I have been riding my GS1100 over all that route since 1997 and think a skilled rider would have no real problem. I led a group of 22 BMW GS's over the China Head/Big Bar route with no significant issues in 1998 (BC Canyons Rally)...and as recently as July, 2012 led 20 dual sporters over the same is my favourite BC ride

The mud up around Gang Ranch and Farwell Canyon can be like soup when it has rained
