14/47 I have for off-road starts screaming at around 45-50mph. My 16/42 can cruise 60 comfortably. I’d probably stick with 15/45(stock) for a happy medium or carry a countersprocket to change for the days ride. 10 min or less job

Mostly dirt i take it? Sounds badass.

As much dirt as possible very little pavement. Really just to break off and get gas.

Woodruff Idaho is were we pick up the trail and ride through Pocatello then Challis salmon up to the Canadian boarder. It's going to be a little over 1500 miles. The T1 is for dirt bikes is how I understand it.

Ride report after?

Definitely. Hopefully my bike holds together. Everyone else will be on 15,000 dollar KTMs and Huskys. I'm going to be the red neck of the bunch haha.

My good buddy rides the living crap out of his XR400 but never got it plated/street legal and I've been mugging him about that.

That's a lot of zigging and zagging.  From Woodruff to the Canadian border is only 650 miles by highway.  Can you post a route?  I'm headed to Idaho on July 17th for a solo ride on my DRZ.

Damn Mkn, I'm jealous.

Lemme know if you wanna come up and get some "Practice". Tons of great trails in my area.

Make sure you bring a rope in case one of those fancy bikes bites the dust.😂 Don't worry about your XR. It'll probably outlive many brand new bikes!!

 

Seriously though, send me a PM if you can make it up here before you go..

 

Jealous.

Yes there is a lot of side to side. If you pm me your email I can send you the tracks we are going to take or some other options if you like. The tracks we are taking there is a shit ton of way points but more of a single route.

Yeah for sure unfortunately time is moving so fast. Right after the tour me and my buddy are going to hit the Black Hills on the big bikes. Just too much to do and too little time. Also in the process of teaching my boy how to ride. Leaving for a family vacation this week. Tour of Idaho is slated for 10 days.
