Don, I think a KLR would do just fine up that way. I managed to get a Civic up there quite a way a few years back while hunting. A friend of mine was up Portelance a few days ago and the river is currently flooding out the road just after the 3rd bridge. Definitely would work best to try later in the season when things dry up - my Tiger has some road-biased tires on it now that would not like mud. I'll be bringing a Spot device as a backup.
