I sometimes carry a small Honda dual sport along for more serious exploring. Or at least the Honda will get me close to where I want to begin my trek on foot. The T1n is my base camp.

Nice!

Have done the same for years in Baja etc. but with a Trail 110. It has a spare tank and it's amazing the remote places it allows you easier access to.

Took my XT225 out to the Racetrack. I would not take the Winnebago MH out there. It would get torn apart. 60 miles round trip. Made the trip in the morning, before all the traffic. While riding to Racetrack I passed a pick-up camper (who was leaving the area) , passed him again when riding back. Later talked to him at Ubehebe Crater. He said it took him over 3 hours to drive out.

Motorcycling in DV is great. Rode over 200 miles.

Long time user and huge fan of Arriflex gear.
Retired now. Relegated to the plebeian ranks of Sony and Nikon.

Glad you like the pix.
