I would pretty much stop at the first bar and not leave until that stuff had dried up. Yikes.

Did a fair amount of that crap in 1980 and was 2 up on a R100T, had to stop periodically and clean the mud from the engine cooling fins.

Reminds me of my trip up the Dempster, I thought I could ride anything, WRONG slipperiest shit ever, had a couple of tough days just trying to stay upright. Good advice from the previous post, I think I will do the same next time, find the closest bar and wait for it to dry a little

Nice stealthy bike, looks like mine did when I first brought her home!

Rattle can ;). I did a step by step in a thread here in the oc last fall I think.
Just bought some carbon wrap from 3m to cover the entire bike and some real carbon for the area's that deserve protection. Rear rally tanks hopefully this fall. She should look different next spring. Carbon or yellow.....decided on the carbon look although it was a real toss up.
