    Nothing like a Trail 90 to make a TW feel like a beast.

    I'm not looking at that.

    Very interesting!



    A TW just might do OK.
    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    Read a thread over on Advrider which showed these same CT90 guys. This sounds like one heck of torture ride, with several injuries reported to both man and machine. Also looks like many of the riders took shortcuts or smoother alternate routes in order to be on time(ish) or get back on track. So, with all that, if I lived closer I'd try it...maybe.

    "Easy" being relative, it's fairly easy if you stay on the powerline roads, but you miss a lot of the cool stuff. If you did it alone or with someone of like mind rather than as part of the official, organized ride there'd be almost no excuse for carnage, mechanical or physical.



    On something small and slow the tendency is to push things a bit too fast in order to make it to the barbecue/beer/bragging rights social aspect of the organized ride before the KTM guys eat all the chow.



    The trip is around 230 from where I live. As long as you had enough fuel you'd never have to see pavement. If anyone wants to give it a shot sometime, let me know.

    So funny, I just stumbled across the same article right before I came here....



    Weird coincidence?



    Perhaps it means something....

    I might chip a nail. It'll be cold. We'd have to ride I-15 home. I have a hair appointment. Camels are evil. Will there be camels?
