And my terrible camera skills view...
Hey Soot, I’m riding out to ID with Team Hoosier and in return for hauling my bike, I’m going to run their shuttle. I have friends and family in the area that I will visit and then ride home solo. I’d probably be able to do the same for you or anybody else in the following years. Give me a heads up in advance. Dan
More TOI testing at Redbird Crest from my view...
My second favorite trail at RB
And my favorite section
I’m starting to gather supplies and pack them up, one more month until we leave!
I finally got my shock dialed in. Big thanks to Morgan's Suspension Service for getting it slowed down for the extra weight that I'll be hauling. Here's a video with 20lbs of gear on the back and 40lbs of fuel from the Fuel Ministry camp last night.
Man these KY trails look awesome! Are they open to the public? If so are there any trail maps or other information available? In the mid-1970s I used to ride a bunch of outlaw trails in Jackson county at a place called "S-tree tower". I wonder what became of all those trails.
Oh yeah, they are all public trails with the exception of the last video that I posted. The trails at S-Tree Tower are open to ride and maintained by the forestry service. Here are the links to the area's in my video's...
Thanks! I'm adding KY to my 'must-ride' list for sure.
so 20lbs is what you are allowing for gear? Is that including the weight of the bag as well? seems pretty light. im all for the lighter the better
Yes, you have to pack very light as some of these trails are borderline extreme Enduro.
Never would have thought a Dr350 would have a chance on this route.
Why not? Air cooled and super reliable with suspension that works best in the rocks. It's basically a XR400 with a 6th gear and electric start.
I've rode and raced many modern bikes, I can't think of another bike that I'd rather be on.
Actually one guy is already on the finishers list on one so I won't be the first.
I read that 450s were the choice bike after the xr650r was retired. Dr350 sounded way too tame to me but i dont know much about the bike. I found a Dr350 for sell bout a year ago super clean and way low miles. I should have bought it or at least rode it. Good luck on your ride. Sounds like you have lots of ride experience to back it up. Enjoy Idaho!!
I think that tame is key on a ride like this, a larger more powerful bike would wear on a person more than one that has a more linear power delivery.
My team mate @KentuckyWR is wisely taming his WR450 down with the programmer to be more forgiving.
The bike is now ready to go.
Oil and filter
Chain and sprockets
Did greasing your suspension just involve getting the grease gun out?
Actually I pulled the linkage apart and greased it by hand since one of the pivot's doesn't have a zerk. Then I went back and hit it with the gun. LOL
Wow, the TAT is great. TOI is definately a stretch goal. Looking forward following your progress. Where can i find the list if bikes that finished?
Jeff and Kent... I will be following along and am excited to see you 2 finish it! I figure I'm about 3 years out of being able to go out and give it a go!
