Year old thread but well worth a comment & a bump as this is the best RR on CR I've found.
YES! Great pics! I'm headed there soon for MC rental and your info is very useful as I'm not looking for an enduro test but do want to get away from the crowds,etc..
r.e., "1st black Chuck Taylors up that mtn" comment--you might have felt your age going up that mtn but my generation lived in those shoes. They wore them in the NBA, I used them for hiking boots until I came into what I'll call the "vibram shoe sole era" & euro style hiking boots & now I'm into the "merrell era" I suppose.
FWIW, your new Honda has some parts that appear to be unchanged from my project bike-1971 Honda CL100! Bigger isn't always better in MC's. How used trumps size. These days too many big GS's is ill thought choice in my mind...
"If I had my life to live over,I'd dare to make more mistakes next time...I'd relax,I'd limber up.I'd be sillier than this trip, take fewer things seriously, I would take more chances... take more trips...climb more mountains...swim more rivers...eat more ice cream." Jorge Luis Borges, at age 85
