As I said before, there are a plethora of bikes that can make the trip. With a bit of help in the nasty spaces, I could have done the trip on my VStrom, but the clutch and skidplate would have been trashed.
Also, we had a Baja1000 finisher do the trip on a 950.....that few could have successfully wrestled through the tough stuff, but he was fine with his exceptional skills.
We also had a rider decide that his KRL was not going to allow him to finish the ride and he bowed out.
Its all about chosing the best tool for the job. A 250cc bike is not the best tool....neither is a 1200cc Adventure bike.
This ride is an application process......where we will evaluate your bike selection and your riding experience and skills.
By the way, The Breeze is a darn good rider and he rode that 250 just about as good as anyone I have every seen.
