Hello Everyone, GF is going to drop me off in Frazier Park and meet me in Paso Robles. I'll be on my 525exc in supermoto trim (michelin pilot street tires). If I take Elkhorn Grade up the hill and Elkhorn Rd across how much loose sand will I run into on steep hills? I can do steep hills with loose rock no problem. I can do deep sand on the flats no problem. I probably can't do steep hills and deep sand together without knobs. Also, any idea how long it would take to cross Carrizo? It's 40 miles or so. Google says 2.25hrs by car. I'll probably be covering ground much faster - is a 25mph ave speed reasonable for Elkhorn Rd or is it much slower than that across the plain?
