Love the XT's only concern is high cruising speed and two up comfort.

ROUTE DIFFICULTY:1 = tar
2 = good gravel /pillion friendly
3 = interspersed with sand, mud, sand , bush / not pillion friendly
4 = lots of sand, technical riding
5 = expert only (we are not worthy, still to meet one)

Hey Camelman great report! That feeling when the bike is down in the middle of nowhere - terrible . But the joy when it works again is sooo incredible. Well done to both of you!  :thumleft:  :ricky:

Well done Camelman, I surely know how hard it is to ride offroad with your wife on the back, especially if you want to keep her!
