Great trip! here is the proof in pictures.
Great photos! Looking to do some more of that next weekend. Those rocky areas don't look all that bad. I had read that they were fairly nasty. One friend is looking to do this on his V-Strom but with street-ish tires (Shinko 705). Wondering if I should suggest something better.
The pictures here are not of the "nasty" areas you refer to. It would have been cool to get pictures of some of the steeper rockier bits but we would have had to plan ahead or use some forethought, which is not our style. We where all just pretty focused on making it through those areas with the rubber side down.
Your friend might be a much better rider than I am, so he might be able to do it on "street-ish" tires. I was very glad that I had a fresh set of TKC 80's on my bike. I don't think the rock garden stuff would be impossible. That being said there are some really rutted out muddy sections that were much like a slip and slide, those areas could be a challenge.
D'oh! It's nastier huh? :)
He's already decided to skip using the V-Strom on Route 5. We'll plan a separate ride out there when he can bring his KLX250S. I've done Route 4 from Seneca to Prineville and it's pretty easy... a V-Strom would do it just fine.
