Magellan Meridian Tracks

After messing with various software for the last few days I have managed to convert all of Mark's tracks to Meridian .trk format. If anyone else is using an old GPS like mine and needs these files email me off list and I'll send 'em. I also discovered that the Meridian will work on a six volt electrical system so I could bring my old 1975 Honda XL-350 next weekend. (but probably not since the kick-stand fell off and it leaks oil)

Many thanks to Mark for uploading the tracks.

Maybe I missed the info, but I can't find anywhere how many miles this adventure is going to be.
If I have a street 500cc bike will I likely make it without too much trouble or is this for off-road bikes?
Thank you for any info, so I don't get in over my head if the pathways are rough.

It's short of 500 miles total for both days combined. You can short cut. NO OFF ROAD, some creek crossing, all on public roads. I think a average rider could make any of the creeks on a street bike,(I know I could, hell my wife could) unless there are heavy rains. YRMV

I have wanted to do this ride every year since I have read about it. I have currently a street bike, so I thought it would be possible to do it all, except for the very deeeeeeeeeeeepest of water crossings. Besides, if I did fall in the creek, there are willing and able inmates to help pick you up!

Looks like I may be in town this year vs. out on a business trip, so I have it penciled in (again) in the calendar. Won't commit until I know for sure.
