I enjoy the bike on roads that a typical pickup truck would be able to handle but if it becomes a true 4 wheel drive only type terrain my bike is not much fun to ride. Does what you found beyond the snow get very loose or go on for long distances? I am only looking for an enjoyable outing, not an extremely challenging off road adventure. What do you recommend?
Chuck, here's a clip from youtube (no one I know). It gives you a pretty good idea of the terrain up there. Unless my memory is wrong, from 1:15-1:26 are about 1/2 mile past where LucasLeader took that picture.

There are a lot of roads in that area where a GSA would be fun, but that route would be a handful I'd think.
