    Tracks attached from a Spring Break ride with my son and some other friends....ridden on mid size ADV bikes (doable on bigger ADV bikes as long as it hasn't rained recently....that mud is NASTY).......only section you might want to avoid on a BIG Adv bike is the stretch between Bar 10 and the turn off for Toroweap......that stretch is pretty rocky therefore it might be a tad bit more difficult than some folks on a loaded ADV bike would be interested in tackling.....easy enough to avoid that stretch by taking the optional Sunday bail track over to the Trumbull School house, then cut back over towards Toroweap on CR5....

    FYI to all - The Parashant Ranger's office came across my trip report on ADV Rider/SDAR and contacted me today......The ranger sent me the following info since I took quads/kids to Bar 10 last year:

    "You can plan a route that utilizes BLM roads that would allow unregistered and uninsured ATV's (an exception in state law permits this) but
    motorcycles need to be dual sport and street legal on the BLM roads here on the Strip as they are considered by AZ law as "streets or highways". All vehicles would need a licensed operator regardless of whether the roads are BLM, Mohave County or NPS roads. "


    The tracks I attached to this thread are a mix of County Roads/BLM Roads/NPS roads.....so if you plan on riding over to the Bar 10 from Mesquite on a quad/buggie/Rhino/etc., and it's not street legal, you will need to deviate from the posted tracks and ride on BLM roads exclusively. Likewise, ALL bikes must be street legal and ALL riders (regardless of vehicle type) must be licensed.

    I'm just the messenger.
