    I built mine with just such trips in mind. It will creep over and through things that you have to blast into with a "normal" dirtbike or dualsport. For solo travel where preserving your own carcass and arriving in one piece SHOULD take priority over speed I consider them far superior. Not sure why I put up with 350+ pound, overpowered and thirsty pigs or pure dirtbikes for as long as I did.



    Wrong tools for the job.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Besides, we wanna see you do it.



    Unless I'm missing something I can't see anything in "The T1 Manifesto" that a TW can't handle.

    Not knocking them, I love'em, If I were to do an around the world ride, a CT90 would be the only bike I'd consider.

    We ain't joking. Not one bit.



    Not to minimize the nature of the Idaho ride. Any trail which requires 1400 miles of travel over what amounts to less than 600 "as the crow flies" miles is nothing to sneeze at and is bound to be chock full of challenges. The recomended 7 days would indicate that you should choose your mount wisely.



    For my part the only offroad situation in which I've ever wished for longer legs has been in realy steep "waterfall" or "stairstep" type terrain, where its short wheelbase and limited suspension travel put it at a definite disadvantage. For everything else you either slow down and alter your riding style or roll right through it as if it weren't there. Including fuel stops.



    I'd do it in a heartbeat, but it takes some real seat time on one of these things before you either dismiss it entirely or agree that it's just the ticket. I understand both philosophies, and on a ride like this you don't wanna be wrong cuz you may not get the chance to do it twice.
