That's a good distinction. I've had 990 Adventure riders want our tracks. They have no clue as to the big bike limits. One of the group did a course pre-ride with his GS. It wasn't much of the dirt bike tracks. Lots of soft sand, and some nasty water crossings. Tough enough on thumpers. Tracks belong to the group leader anyway.

Great trip and great report. Thanks for sharing. I know it's a lot of work putting a RR like this together.

Makes me want to do more riding in that area. My only foray thru there was the western TAT a few years ago.

Nice report! The easy side of Ophir Pass was rough, rocky and steep. I would not recommend it to anyone who is afraid of scratching their bike. Or who can't pick up their bike. I had to pick mine up 3 times on that climb. It is just a light little 500 but I needed help because of the altitude. I think it took me 20 minutes to catch my breath at the top.

MM-did you intend to say east side instead of easy side?I have read your rr's and noticed you & your crew climbed the east side.I think for me it would have been easier to climb .Its hard to slow down a packed bike bouncing on rocks.The spot where I dropped my bike turned into a 20 minute rest break.I had the sweaty head thing going on+getting the muscle to pick the bike up.Time for squats in the gym?Your routing on your rr's in awesome.I am kind of at a basic level with gps.

Yes I did mean to write east side. I am not sure if that was my fat finger or the auto spell check thing on my phone. Anyway the east side of Ophir Pass is rough, rocky and steep while the west side is a smooth graded gravel road. Thanks for picking up on that mistake.
