    We rode one long leg of this when we did the TAT. I was on a KLR. It was a little challenging, but it was the kind of stuff I love. Another guy on a KLR hated it though.

    I don't know enough about the trail to know what percentage of it we rode or if there are other options and side shoots of it.

    So I would say if you are at least an average rider, you will do well and most likely enjoy it on a DR 650.
