Has anyone tried one of those tour companie in AZ or CA? For about $1500 bucks you get 4 days in various conditions on their bike, or $1000 if you use your own bike. I use theirs since I am an east coaster.

Anyone try one of these? I am really thinking about a Xmas present to myself given I can't get this type of riding on the east coast...

Tnx

What about having a longer xmas break and riding from east to west coast, I suppose that easy for me to say where I live as it takes me under 5 hrs to ride from where I live on east coast to west coast. Are you saying the riding is better on your west coast because am planning a tour over there somtime in future?

Hey Kiwi -

Not better just different terrain. The west coast has dessert, and many off road areas - the east coast is a different syle. Coast to coast is over 2,000 miles as a straight shot ...

So just looking for a different experience - like the idea of jumping around in the dessert since I've never had the experience and it looks fun.

Hey now! The East coast has pie, ice cream, strawberries and even baklava if you know where to look. Just don't be jumping around in it.

Which tour companies in particular are you considering?

And keep in mind that Kawasaki's marketing-speak "dual purpose" is very different from the on road/off road implication of "dual sport". Dual Purpose is commuter & canyon carver, Dual Sport is sand, mud, gravel, water crossings and rocks.
In fact, Kawasaki now markets the Versys in the "Sport" category.
