Sweet - I'm so in. Expect to be unemployed that month, so should totally be able to swing it. Promise not to break anything this time! (Although maybe I'll bring some of the percocet they gave me last time just in case...)

Very Big Bike friendly! Most long routes are good for 650cc to 1200cc bikes. Long dirt roads and some highway sections on most rides. Lots of KLR650's, 990's and GS/GSA's. I rode my GS last year.

Right on! I'd be on the GSA as I can't justify the fuel cost to tow the WR out, so this would be perfect. I might bring a rear dirt tire and mount it when I get there so as not to shag a good knobby on the way there on the long drone from Kalifornistan...

That is a good idea! I rode with the Tourance EXP's last year and will use the Heidenau k60's this year. The EXP's worked well enough but I had to focus on every turn in the dirt. I just spent some time in Death Valley with the K60's and had much better traction in the turns in the dirt. They are also a decent road tire too. I rode out and back from Temecula and have very little wear.
