I think we should do unlimited class tractor racing on the T'railway. My buddy Evs is a Tecumseh performance specialist because of a long experience with mini bikes in his youth.

He best be a suspension specialist. Although the trailway is maintained for snowmobiling it is also used by the locals all summer with heavy quad traffic. As such undulating is the nicest word i can think of but i have used stronger language.
I chatted with a couple from Maryland who crossed the island and she told me she never wanted to see another set of bumps/humps again. It tests your shocks and your straps.

If I still had every dollar I spent on motorbikes I would be a richer man but a poorer person.

I had a similar experience on the K&P rail trail in Ontario last year. I brought the KLR, which is not blessed with the world's most refined suspension. Everything was just fine as long as I remained standing, but that gets tiring after the fifth hour or so.

The DRZ is a bit more suited to the task.

Yes Tim, I'm a jar is half full kind of guy! Thanks!

I found a great pic that I thought I should post here. Ninety years later, It reminds me of a rider we all know with a similar passion!
