I ride a WR250R.. no big bikes here. Not at least until a bigger budget and my 5'7" stature gaining some height!
I'm just hitting the BDR for a week because it's close the baby sitters town and what I have a knowledge of in south, central Utah.
I don't have any GPS of note, just my iPhone 5 with some pretty apps on it.. I'm a map/wander 'til you find it sort of person but my wife insists on having some idea of where were going if she's coming along.
Thanks for the info and links - a quick perusal and I've already got a days worth of reading ahead of me!
I'm looking forward to checking out your tracks on GPSXchange.com

CDR is the Continental Divide Ride. It runs from the Mexican border near Antelope Wells New Mexico and runs pretty much straight north along the continental divide to the Canadian border. It is a well-established route and lots of people do it. Good tracks are available on GPSXchange.com and DualSportMaps.com
The GWT is much less well defined. It is not one route but a bunch of routes in parallel thru public lands. Some of these routes are non-motorized. And some seem to just be somebody's imagination.
It "officially" starts a bit north of Globe AZ. Countdown, BigDog, Buddy_Hollyand others including myself have been exploring and coming up with a viable set of tracks.
We have a good route now to the Mexican border south of Sierra Vista AZ. And I think Jerry has explored quite a ways into Utah.
There is a long thread on recent explorations in GPSTracks- West
