Hello all - planning on doing a loop like this starting approximately May 1 ending up around Portland mid-June and then back in CA sometime after that. Hardware is a 2008 530 EXCR I took on the TAT a couple summers ago with a big tank. Going to go light and stay in hotels mostly. I like this bike offroad; it'll go anywhere. I've done quite a bit of work on it replacing wheel bearings, counter shaft, brakes and rotors, and the valves. I'm going to have the suspension rebuilt before I do this trip so I think the bike should be in pretty good shape. Routes and gps tracks i'm taking from: https://ridebdr.com/ http://www.oohva.org/ If anyone has locations for tracks for northern california, those would be much appreciated! Planning to keep a pace around 100-150 miles a day, riding 5-6 days a week -- leisurely pace. Any advice welcome! I'll start a thread in ride reports once I'm on my way.
