So my plans for a trip to Mongolia this summer is over due to COVID-19. If this COVID-19 situation in US calms down by early Fall, I am planning to take a couple of weeks off of work to go motorcycle camping on my F650GS thumper. Here is the tentative route. Ideally, I would like it to contain some off-pavement riding. I am thinking of taking the CDT in Colorado and Wyoming. I am a decent rider (at my own pace) on not so gnarly tracks on the F650GS. However I would rather avoid long sections with deep sand and baby heads. My bike fully loaded is heavy, and I will be riding solo. Additionally, I have minimal skills when it comes to repairing motorcycles. Right now I am learning how to fix flats in tires, that should give you an idea about my skills. The primary objectives are riding and photography, in equal parts. Generally I tend to wake up late, ride too many miles in the remainder of the day, and return with an empty SD card. This time I want to stop often to take lots of photos. Is there a more scenic alternative route to do this trip?
