Day 12 & 13 : Glacier to Riggins and then Mountain Home. 700 + miles back. On the day we were planning to ride down to Missoula, I had to abort the trip due to family emergency back east. So, I had to find the fastest way to a major airport. I decided the best option would be to fly out of Boise, ID. So, we slapped 700 miles in two days. I left my bike in Mountain Home and flew out of Boise next day. During ride back towards Mountain Home, I did have opportunity to ride the scenic Hwy. 12 from Lolo to Riggins.

After this trip, I'm more convinced the correct answer is "that depends." It all depends on rider skill. Either bike is capable. During our ID BDR ride, we ran into two solo riders on R1200 GSA, another rider on Honda Africa Twin, and couple of KTM 690 riders. It all depends on your skill and comfort level with 100+ horsepower at your finger tips. I personally prefer a more mellow and lighter bike I can lift up myself.
