    What do you think of hatcheting your route as shown below...
    i would miss CA and NV but get to ride your route in UT, CO, NM and AZ.
    Thoughts?
    Thanks

    There is no way to cross the Grand Canyon where your line shows. You would have to go to NV 169 about 20 miles west of Mesquite. That road runs along the west side of Lake Meade all the way to Boulder Dam and then cross the Colorado on the new bridge to US 93. You could pick up our track in Kingman.

    I just relaized this also...
    I think the route shown is going to be my plan with the path around the cayon you mentioned.
    I will be leaving denver on 4/8 and if all go's well you should see a trip report at a later date.
    Thanks

    Two separate files, TET and TETS. Just request both when you fill out the form. The VT/NH/ME tracks have been laid, we just need to tidy them up and they will be included in the next release.

    I forgot to mention the best long Dual Sport ride in the USA:

    http://mex2can.com/

    13 days, 2,500 miles, and more miles of fun 2-track (less graded) than any other long ride.
