    Any critical changes to these routes since 2012?

    I'm going to pick up my first dirt-worthy dual sport tomorrow...a 2007 KLR 650. I can't wait to try these trails!

    I am considering doing the HO-CAT next Saturday on a 1200GSA and taking a NOOB with me on his F800GS. Am I biting off too much? How difficult is the route?

    I haven't ridden it in a few years, but it's just dirt and paved roads; should be easy. Tell him to keep his weight back and stay on the throttle in any deep sand. Have fun!

    Hit part of the trail with a few other guys today. There were a few bad mudholes but most of the roads we hit were in good shape!

    Reading this thread has gotten me motivated to try to create a loop out of the francis Marion forest roads. I’m sure there’s a way to connect this mess of spaghetti.
