From the video above it looks like way too much pave and way way too much open gravel roads. Is this the nature of most of the ride?

Did folks follow big dogs tracks or countdown. I have heard that countdown follows the divide more closely but if that means more boring gravel roads then I would look for a more interesting route.

Any pref on who's tracks to use?

Thanks

Yes the route is pretty but much easier than the TAT. Thumpers are overkill. The one tricky section we found ourselves on had a no Motos sign facing the other way, we discovered upon exiting.

All posted tracks for CDR are the same bicycle route. I did scout a route across NM tha follows the divide as close as possible and it is much more Dual Sport than Adv Bike.

I got side tracked before I did CO which will have tons of single track suitable for trial bikes.

If you want a much better moptorcycle ride, look at the Great Western Trail. It has as much 2-track as possible and a lot of single track but all with Adv Bike bypasses..
