    Working on a couple of GPS units at the moment. Will the ride be contained to IN, or will other states be included? Also, how soon do you post the tracks? Thanks!

    Was riding with Loosenut over the weekend--------------the ride will stay in Indiana---the tracks will be posted on this thread probably right before the ride. I'm going to assume he will post the tracks in the very first post----so no one has go search thru this thread for them.
    The route is not finalized yet.

    No rear brake on a loaded KLR above treeline in the Colorado Rockies sounds like some serious pucker factor!
    A group of us from Michigan were out there a couple weeks ago riding parts of the COBDR and exploring, for us it was also a trip of a lifetime. What a Magnificent place to ride! Pic is the north side of Black Bear Pass after the stair steps... a handful on the KLR.

    1207.jpg Count me in. Have enjoyed riding dirt and pavement in Southern Indiana many times, mostly from Bloomington down to Cannelton and west to Shoals.
    Been on pavement down your way once riding the Ohio River Scenic Byway, stayed at Clifty Falls.

    Looking forward to riding with you folks and checking out some new dualsport route!
