Route help please - West Yellowstone to Gerlach

Howdy gang,
Near the end of this month, I'm going to be riding from West Yellowstone, Mt to Gerlach, NV. And then back. Here's a screen capture from Microsoft Streets and Trips of a possible route across Idaho I've been working on while waiting for the mud around here to dry:


If the weather cooperates, I'll be doing this as a dual sport ride on my 950SE and am looking for a mix of high speed dirt, pavement, and possibly short sections of more technical stuff. I'm a decent off road rider in rocks and sand but hate riding mud. I'll have a fuel range of 150 - 170 miles. I'll be riding by myself most likely and carrying camping stuff. I'm looking to make 350 miles or so the first day.

I'm posting in the West forum for recommendations on the Nevada section but here's the screen capture for that section:


Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

I just typed a big response that was lost to the interweb. Twice!

Have a look at the links in my signature for some inspritation. The Jungo Road was traveled by Chuck in 2013. I think it is a gravel freeway.



Do you have a Benchmark Atlas for NV and ID? Get one and PM me.

That's what we thought too but ('14) it was hammered with potholes keeping speeds under 60. Hadn't been grade in quite awhile.

Tubliss flat #1.




All that stuff around Owyhee to Midas is fast for sure.

I tend to leave my air pressure fairly high (26 psi) to avoid pinch flats and rim dings.

I haven't ever ridden Jungo Road and need to ride it at least once just to say I have. If I don't like it, I don't have to go back. By the way, here's the latest screen captures of the S&t routes I have come up with due to feedback from the inmates.
