dirty big rigs

Big touring rigs can eat miles of super slab, but was looking for pictures and comments from those who have ventured off on rides such as the Dalton, Dempster, Baja, etc..... I currently ride a Kawasaki Voyager XII that has carried me through some great rides but nothing to dirty yet. Thanks

My XV920 on the Magruder Corridor in Idaho.
Don't know if this is what you mean by a big tourer. I had a woman in Utah ask what I was doing so far from home on such a little bike, I told her it was over 900 cc and weighed over 500 lb.s, so what was little about it ?
I can say this thing is about all I'd ever want to pick up off the ground. Been there , done that.

People who don't know bikes can't tell much. But they can talk big.

the wife and I recently did a month in Baja on our 1150. We only did one day of dirt, because, lets face it..... two up on a GS in the sand with camping gear, food, water, tools, clothes etc is not a lot of fun....

BUT we got to see some cool stuff
