I'd take the DR then.

Thanks for the reply! this thread inspired me to ride part of the route today and my DR650SM worked great. FWIW Geysers RD had some washouts (including one with an unexpected stop sign
) , short stretches of gravel and mud but was fine overall. Old Toll road had lots of washboard sections and I had two sort of close calls on blind curves with pickup trucks going the other way, glad I was not going too fast. BTW found a most excellent new microbrewery in Kelseyville along the way
