888 ,Thanks for the reminder list of what works in the real world and what doesn't. Easy to get a somewhat warped view of those things when riding back east in the land of state parks and corner convenience stores.

Sounds like yall had quit the adventure. I learned the same lesson about the shoes ,a couple of years ago in the White Cloud mtns. of Idaho. MX boots are no fun after the 5-6 milkes of hiking.

The 'notso easy' adventures are the ones that stick with ya

Thanks for the report, will put it to good use in a few weeks..

Judging from what you considered "problems" and the amount of crap you over loaded your bikes with, you were done before you even started your ride.
This is coming from the 5th guy to ride the whole T1 route, without a gps or lights while having a separated shoulder (at rm 140 ish) with hamburgered muscles and tendons in my shoulder from my crash, which happend because I was keeping an eye on one of your "types".
I really can't believe how much stuff you had. Those bikes must have handled like a elephant on roller skates.
Really? Did you even do any research on the ride?
I've seen to many riders like you. They always end up in the same situation. Either going home cause they're manginas hurt or they end up ruining everyone else's ride because they have to be continually bailed out.

Stay on the porch.

T1 and T2,

Damm we are lucky those routes are shared with us. True Dirt bike adventures!!!!!!!!

I haven't finished the T1 or T2 yet, but plans are for a Aug 2013 T1 ride. KTM 530 loaded very light(1/2 loaded Giant loop, no camping or cooking gear except a water filter)). I've rode trails in the Pocatello area for many years, adventure is all over there as well. Previous rides were on a KTM 525, good bike for the T's, 7 gallon tanks, torque(nice in the rocks and climbs), and almost light weight.

Riging gear is your survival suit, and as much as I'd like to wear Mounterneering boots, I'll just wear Full MX boots. You really don't just ride the T's, you and your bike have to survive them.

Thanks for sharing!

I think you probably crashed your bike and tore up your shoulder because you were riding over your head in an attempt to impress the guys you were so called keeping an on. Try keeping an eye on the trail instead. Good job on being the 5th guy to complete the T1, your such a bad ass....
