Love reading other's reports and looking at their pictures, so will do my best to capture the story for you V-Duck since you set up this gig in the first place. Make me jealous of your "B-Route" adventure!

Yes. I don't think there's anything you wouldn't feel comfortable with, loaded on your GS. Think two-wheel-drive ranch trucks.

IF IT'S DRY. Much is dirt that turns to mud, when it's rained.
The roads were all regraded last year. to get the ruts out. Big, wide & fast.
The creek crossings are very small, honestly.....trust me.....

No really, should be good. Zac ran it on his V-Strom, loaded, with streety tires on the way back from Crooked River campout

I'm already jealous of his B route. He is doing Fandango Canyon which is right near the top of my bucket list. In fact I would be interested in knowing if you think we could do it one day behind you guys one our big bikes. If I remember reading right there is only one area that is a little tough. V-duck I'll PM you my cell number and would love to hear from you that evening after doing Fandango.

MUST DO!!
Hay AJ is that the same as Madras to Ashwood to Gosner to painted hills. It's raining hard at my house right now. Wonder if any of this moisture will get to the Ashwood area. I forgot where I live for a second, it's probably only raining at my house.

Scott, i better get my new rear tire mounted tonight before I start having fun playing with maps.

Those big Pirellis are a bitch to change, at least for me. Maybe tomorrow night.

V-Duck, I'm officially on the A-team now. Will be looking forward to the B route report to see what I'm missing there.

Doug

I could do Fandango (easy route) on my Cruiser.... IF I WENT SLOW. There are no treacherous spots, just lots of rocks and some sand. But maybe I don't have a firm grasp of reality.
