Thinking about it.
Edit...wait, NOT thinking of dirty bikers in vans....thinking of going to this rally... darn posting at same time
River Road west can have some sandy patches that if you go too slow on will be a challenge. I rode it last March with my DR650 with fully inflated Shinko 700 tires without a problem. I've had more dirt oriented tires before, these are apparently 60 street / 40 off road tires. My bike is heavier than your DRZ so if you have decent tires it shouldn't be a problem. Rode Old Ore last week with a squared off and balding Shinko 700 rear and didn't have a problem except one section that was sandy and I was going too slow. I'm hopefully getting a new tire this or next week.I am in!
Planning to come in on Tuesday to do some hiking etc at the park.
Made reservations today at Chisos Mining but did not receive the email they promised (checked junk folder) with the details on how much and where to send the required check. Hmmm. Will need to call them again tomorrow.
Going to bring the DRZ for some off pavement experience but pretty intimidated by the tales of River Road, etc. Maybe I can find a class to take before to acquire some more good habit techniques to improve my chances!
Will bring the GS as well for some paved routes too!
Find a friend (or local Adv/TWTer) and hit the sandy roads up by Castell. Riding in sand is a skill, and once learned, it's fun. Until you learn it, it's a huge amount of work and potentially dangerous. I consider myself "learned" and still had a small off last time I did River Road.Maybe I can find a class to take before to acquire some more good habit techniques to improve my chances!
