    I don't know of anyone doing the adventure ride 2 up, but it should be easy to do for anyone with some experence.

    IIRC the dualsport loops are ~100mi each day, and they have hard & easy. Gary (organizer) said a KLR650 dirt rider with 1yr experience should be able to complete the easy loops. I also understand they have lots of bail-out options on all the routes, so if folks are running late/tired/wounded bike:lol3 etc. it is easy to bail and get back to the hotel.

    Looking forward to this ride...just gotta get healthy (sciatica flaring up :waysad)...also hope this heatwave starting up has waned by next weekend :D

    The organizers, by not providing more information on both rides are missing out on a lot potential riders. No one wants to invest money without having information posted as to difficulty ect. and having to make phone calls to ask is PITA.
