North. It starts near Cortez and ends on the Wyoming border.

Start is 7/23. End will vary based on many factors. I've read 4-6 days. I'm planning on 6.

When I rode it on my KLR with the boys from Butler MC Maps and Touratech, we completed it by mid-afternoon on the seventh day.

And that was with lots of time spent filming along the way, meaning making U-turns and repeating things for Sterling Noren's camera. I would think six days would be realistic, and comfortable. I couldn't imagine packing it into four days. And who would want to. This is something you'll want to savor.

I believe the general plans are to cover about 100 miles a day, which would take 7 days. This would allow time for side trips, sight seeing and ripping over alternate dangerous passes.

That would be a pleasant pace, giving you time to enjoy the terrific campsites along the way.

Plus ... Being on KLRs, you won't lose time waiting for KTMsters to make their trailside repairs.







My only issues mechanically were finding Rotella along the way (found a resupply at a quick-lube place), keeping oil in it, maintaining the air filter, and a side-rack bolt falling off.

Can a rider do only part of trip?

Not sure I can do a whole week, but would be interested in 3 or 4 days.

You would definitely be able to do that. We have about 50 riders who say they will be going. Groups from about 4-6 I imagine.
