I'm still Interested in this. I don't think it happened on MLK weekend.
as far as being Vee friendly, I think so. There are some sandy sections that suck on either bike, but would be even suckier on a the big one. There are usually bypass routes though for the nasty sections.
I will be hitting the first and maybe second sections tomorrow. I will start over in sierra vista as it seems easier and will be travelling solo. I'll try to work my way up from there, let me know if you guys can join.
Hey guys, the first two sections were a lot of fun. I won't be riding solo next time though. I underestimated the trickier sections was carrying too much weight. There were a couple of times where I thought about turning back but it was probably too late anyway. I uploaded a clip summary of the fun parts of day one titled AZBDR Section 1 on a V-Strom 650 on youtube. I can't post links yet.
Let me know if/when you want to meet up for a ride north of Globe.
