Thanks, I think everything worked out nicely for me on this trip. The DR200 was perfect size for the 5'7 170lb me. I nearly lost it many times in the mud and anything large I would have gone down for sure. A KLR650 or V-strom 650 would be the next choice in line if you are a bigger fella or if you are going on one of the on-road trips. I would not recommend 2 up on a off-road trip unless you are highly skilled. Definitely pack some good rain gear regardless of the season as weather is very unpredictable in the mountains. Arrive a day early to get acclimated to the altitude and the the paperwork out of the way. It's pretty clean everywhere since it rains a lot there and generally you won't see trash flying around.
