    @Eastbay Dirtbag; This trip looked very nice (well to me anyway). Question: Would one be able to do this trip with, lets say, a Triumph Tiger 1200?

    I think so. I've never ridden a 1200 Tiger but I rode an 800 Tiger through the Indian Himalayas with no trouble and this route is no where as difficult as that was! I also used to have a Honda Africa Twin 1000 and that would work but I preferred the DRZ for off-road. The trickiest part of this whole trip was the water crossing on Day 2. Have a good set of tires since there are a few short rough sections, but nothing technical. We prefer knobbies.
