Since I picked up my DR650 last summer I've been wanting to go far far away. Drove through Utah last spring, and I know its where I need to go for spring break. I'll be getting there by highway, but once there I want to go offroading. Since I'm fairly inexperienced I'm hoping to get some solid feedback for my plans. As for gear, I have none except for a Arai XD. I've been thinking about it alot, and I'm leaning towards a Koerta with a Moose Expedition over it, as those would probably be most usefull for the riding I do around here too. I'm also hoping that Olympia Air Mesh pants will be durable enough for offroading. And some Gaerne Explorers. I'm planning on getting there as quickly and cheaply as possible, so I'll probably be camping. I'll be picking up camping equipment soon, but I have no idea how to even plan/find places to rest and sleep. As for my bike, I was hoping to spruce up the suspension at least, but it looks like that wont be happening as I already need to do a base/head gasket replacement. I'm thinking the best idea would be to ride out there on a road oriented tire, and switch to knobbies once there. I also dont know what spares to pack. Thats what I have so far for planning.
