Much better on my 250.

I could see WPG getting overrun by ATV's though. Fourche Mountain isn't near as crowded and I think some of the trails would be more difficult. I only rode there a little bit since I took a spill and twisted my forks.

I don't have any GPS tracks since that was the trip where I lost my 60Cx
I had a good time, but sometimes I ride for the challenge. Fourche does have some more challenging areas.

With the expection of some of wolf pen. Those routes are all v-stromable, or any big dual sport. Easy on road type of riding, with problally 20 pecent pavement, depending on which route you run.

Yeah, those are RL Lemke's '99-'00 routes from when he had the Ozarks Fall Color tour ride in Mena. I've ridden them both (on a XL600R and a DR-Z400S) and agree with johnwesley.
On those rides there was a knobby loop in Wolf Pen Gap and a "hero" section in Fourche Mountain. I skipped those in '00 because the weather was wet and cold.

I've got half of a right shoulder and a bad back now, so I need all the help I can get

So far so good for me, but if I had back and or shoulder problems then I would stay a way from some of those trails on a klr as well.

I may have a 125 two smoke in my future, that will be for the extreem stuff. Then who knows I may change my mind what I want to do with the klr
