I am new to the group but have met some of the guys. Greg was extremely helpful getting some used tires on the GS just a couple weeks ago.
Is it too late to join this event? I have a 08′ GS but do not have the tires for this level of off roading. For first time, would rather ride my platted XR650R. I am adding a rear rack from RevZilla and will mount a soft trunk bag from my snowmoble. Holds about 10L (my guess) plus a back pack, should have enough room for gear and some tools. I plan to hotel each night. My Thumper has standard fuel tank which gets me about 100 miles max (I suppose – never took the bike on any one ride through a full tank before). What is the expected range between fuel stops?
