Dan - get a new moto (XR650R) leave the huge duffel bag home (use the straps to secure a single small bag w/tent BEHIND vs. on top) and make sure you mount that HEAT SHIELD CORRECTLY! :eek1
When you do this loop again stay at the Summer Lake hot springs, and camp at the hot springs in Saline Valley.
A warm soak takes cold out of camping. I recognize that van in your driveway, I built the interior for it.
It's the Oregon Back Country Discovery Route. All kinds if riding. Sand, water crossings mountains. Only its best no later than early October. After that its too cold and the potential for snow is high.
I have a wolfman bag that has over 30k and has held up. I was looking for something a little smaller and better built (stronger/tougher).
Great report. I'm planning on death valley in early February. Your trip got me excited.
buddy its hell lot of fun,!! i want to put my klr to this test. any new rides in lineup?
keep me posted!
cheers! and an excellent write up.
dude thats badass!!!
Nice report. Thanks for the write-up.
Two clutch cables? Weird. The only time I broke a cable on my XRR is when I misrouted it and the housing got pinched in the steering stop...wonder if that happened with you too?
My XRR is set-up similar to yours - I have the Coyote bag, too. I agree...rough single track can be very sketchy with a loaded-up XRR!
Wachs has good advice: gotta' keep the center of gravity low.
Finally got back to your report, been super busy!!
Glad the pics are back!!
What an awesome ride, love that kind of trip...pressed for time and making miles is a must do.
Nice report from the past... good to see the pics too!
Nice trip. Just load up and go. And maybe get some tires, clutch cables, and chain/ sprockets (or not) along the way. Thanks for sharing.
