    Does anyone know the current condition of the gravel road portion (10mi?) of the St Regis, MT to <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:place w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">ST</st1:City> Joe River Road, <st1:State w:st="on">ID</st1:State></st1:place> route? I understand it has been packed gravel in past years; suitable for sport/touring bikes.

    It seems like it is graded regularly. Dry, dusty and loose gravel. Not much fun, but not a problem either, for any bike. Worth the effort, the upper St. Joe River Road is a fantastic stretch of pavement.

    Thanks for the update; all the reports I found are at least a year old, so I was concerned about any winter damage. I hope to loop back via this route over Labor Day on my R1100RT.

    It shouldn't be any kind of problem. I was over there ~2-3 weeks ago.
