@AJxr - sincere thanks for taking the time to capture images, document, and craft this report - by far one of the most enjoyable I've perused here and that's something as this is the only form of social media I do and I like to read lots of reports as it's an outlet for me (if we can call this asylum social media ). I enjoyed your matter of fact writing style and the wit you sprinkled throughout the report; also admire you taking an old XR on some remote, tough crap. If your planning involves heading further west and you enjoy desolation and rugged beauty, I'd suggest Nevada, SE Oregon, Eastern Washington, and Idaho. I have tracks for SE Oregon and northern NV, the Nevada BDR route is supposed to be fantastic, as is the the WA BDR and I believe the Idaho BDR is good too. I spent 7 days riding solo through SE Oregon back in June and it was my 4th trek out that way, I love it there. Wish I could take a 4-6 weeks and just ride the western BDRs, especially Nevada over to Idaho and then back through OR. In any event, glad you were able to get the ride back to your rig in CO sorted and didn't have to take the XR apart doing so. Nothing like that small twist to end the adventure...lol. Keep the knobby side down in your future endeavors and thanks again for the report.
