    Is this 10 odd kms feasible from Doi Pui on a V Strom, or is it KLR 250 country?

    I'm looking for a road, not a trail. 2018-01-10 03.16.30 pm.

    Thanks.

    I rode up there about 8 years, and back then it was no track for a bigger bike.
    Ill probably be going up there next week sometime, so Ill give you an update then.

    Thanks. We aren't coming up until late Feb, so there is a while yet.

    Hi Deano747.

    You can make the call by looking at these photos.
    In my view, this is a track for KLX CRF etc, and you would need to have a bit of off road experience as well.
    Theres a few steep, rutty climbs with loose rocks on them.

    Thank you for that. So that's a no for us on the bigger bikes with all our gear. Looks like a fun track though. Too many roads, not enough time or different bikes in the shed :)
