I'll be doing the Oregon Backcountry Discovery Route in a few weeks on my '13 KTM 300 xcw. Should be about 1500mi in 9 days. Taller 14/46 gearing, a 4.1gallon tank and new tires are about the only prep I've done. I've done lots of 2T sport touring on my TZR250 and TDR250 in the past, so not too worried about it. Thumbing the kill switch on long descents or after a a long straight helps to cool the fire while keeping the fuel flowing.
