We did some remote road exploring in Utah last spring with a couple of Land Cruisers along with a KTM and a BMW DS.
- One of the guys on a bike had a Ham radio wired into his helmet, and was able to relay back road conditions and obstables.
- Trucks are good sag wagons for the bikers (food, drink, gas, gear, etc.)
- Trucks are good for helping with recovery or when the bike faces an obstacle that is pushing its limits
- Bikes were constantly waiting for the trucks...
If I were on a bike I would not want to wait around for the truck. There are a number of benefits, but the bikers have to expect that their pace and route planning will be significantly altered.
