Sonymalc and I , riding our 07 BMW Xchallenge's took off early on the 26th heading out on dirt to Middlegate for breakfast, Our bikes: We added Koplin 1.7gal Fuel jugs, both us are running 15/50 gearing, We used no oil, two rear tires each, The range we got on the stock tank was any where from 120 to 150 miles, and we needed the extra about 5 times on the ride. We both had allot of stuff loaded and the AirShock worked great, The air shock is very much misunderstood, I do not want to change it to a standard shock. The heated grips came in very handy on the cold mornings and the Delorme PN40 GPS was awesome. Even after we changed our minds and where not going to use the final three days of tracks the Lil' Delorme routed us on some very nice dirt roads. I ran Wolfman Bags all around and they held up and worked great, Malcolm ran a rear RevPack Tour Pack and it also proved to be a very good bag, he ran the Wolfman tank and Tank side bags. I was amazed at all the stuff we carried on these bikes, They handled it very well. Saw a lone Antelope that wanted to race, he won. then to Austin for gas, with a little fast fun on the way Out of Austin we headed for Elko for the night, Got to Elko at about 5:30 Day one mileage 389. Leaving from Elko we headed north up to Jarbidge which is great, but from there to Mountain home ID was long, fast and boring. . I will add more later tonight.
