    My buddy and I just finished 191 last week on two Harleys. Frankly, we were disappointed. The pavement quality was abysmal and there were few places to pull over to admire the scenery. Literally a road to nowhere. It was only when we got to Hannagan Meadow that the road surface improved enough for us to relax. We found US 60 through the Salt River Canyon to be a much better ride. Wrong bikes for the job I guess. Maybe if we'd been on a couple of KLR's or something.

    I didn’t notice any bad road section issues, maybe on the old tech suspension it all felt the same. It was a riot, never felt tire slippage not anything bad enough to make the bike change direction or scrape and I used all the tire :dunno

    Those old cb750s are great bikes. Bet it was a hoot to do a ride on like that.
