Thanks! Point me in the right direction if you do a ride report on your trip.

Now that is a fine, inspirational ride report !

Two people who realize you are only as old as you act and are out doing fun stuff! The definition of living!

Good food pics too !

Gosh, when I'm 75 I hope I'm out riding my XCo. I like those Yammy 250s too.

Very nice relaxing trip-------I was all tensed up-----and the feel of your ride just made me relax---very nice.

The only thing missing is a picture of your pretty faces ?????

Here's mine-----well...it's not so pretty I guess--taken at a place you are going next year.
I'm really skinnier and better looking in person

If DC had one of those itty bitty WR250's he'd be flying down those dirt roads like a mad man---you'd think his throttle was stuck !!!!!!
Standing up on the footpegs---wide open---one hand on the handlebars----and eatin' a banana with the other.
With a grin you couldn't wipe off with a chain saw.

And your post made me laugh! Yes, I never post pics of us online, our faces anyway...old fashioned or paranoid I guess. Neat that you responded though, because we had checked out your website a while back and read about your ride to Alaska on the WR...truly inspiring. And back when I was thinking of downsizing from the Husky, I read where you had sold your 610 and got a WR, so that got me to thinking that the WR might really be a viable option. DC has considered downsizing to a WR too, but we'll see. The lower height of the X-Country works better for him, but of course he could lower the WR to be more comfortable.

I checked out your ride report. Very nice setup you have with that trailer. I definitely need a gas tank like yours, and the knobbies look good. I may be trying that setup soon.

Thanks. When I was looking to get a WR, I looked up all the ride reports that I could find on one. There weren't all that many, so I thought I'd add mine to the mix, even though it wasn't a hardcore ride like some of the reports on here.

Thanks for the comments.
I am headed out on another adventure soon, I'll be out for over 2 weeks this time.

I love the Shinko 244s on the 17 wheels. I also have a dirt set of wheels and tires 18 and 21" but I prefer the 17s. I might sell the extra set.

You can never have too much gasoline, unless your bike is on fire (Credit to Johna Street.

I might go with the larger tank if I had it to do over. The Safari was the only one available at the time and I don't regret getting it.

Sorry bout bringing the thread back to life. Just read it and realized that my wife and I did almost the exact same ride about 5 days ahead of you. Right at the end of June 2013. Loved camping at Eagle Lake except for the campground host who was a complete wiener. That stretch of 395 from Reno towards Susanville seemed to just go on forever! We did the same with camping for 2 or 3 nights and then a hotel. Cheers (by the way, I have a WR250X but we did the ride together on a Can Am.
