    I cannot believe the condition of those roads out there in the middle of nowhere, I guess low rainfall is part of the reason, but do they get graded regularly?

    Nice RR...stunning country!

    Hey Essbee,
    I have no idea about the upkeep of the roads.
    It was the first time I’ve been on them.....or heard of anybody going out there .
    I’m sure many have.....but I just went out there and found my way thru ........navigating to a waypoint in my gps.
    I wish I could remember where I got it from but I don’t?........
    Sure was a hoot.

    The US Border Patrol uses those roads 24 hrs. per day. That is why they are kept up so well. Many miles like that . Big bike friendly with decent tires.

    BigDog, I’m sorry I missed you. I’m building a home along Cave Creek in the portal area. Animas is the closest fuel to me. I would have loved to ride to the monument with you. chip
