Cool! Shoot pics if you have time.

Is the route well marked from Sipapu to AF?

There are a few rocky sections that are not represented in the past pics. I would go with "C" just to make sure you're covered

This from the GSA beak cam...keep in mind that the GoPro makes it look smoother oh...and try not to hurl while viewing



Watch out for this puddle...


It's a great road for a novice...have fun!

There is one Y with a sign that saz "76" but NO Arrow ... we went right until we ran out of road and had to back track. 76 goes left ! We rode out and back yesterday , like 60 miles of this. As I said , I'm new to DS riding and this Road was a blast , a NM classic. You still planning of riding it this weekend ? Go early and beat the rain. Also the ADV Latin American Riders Rally will be in Sipapu this weekend. I may do it again !I'll try posting this little video from yesterday.

Thanks for the info, looks like a blast!

If I don't hit it this weekend, I'm going to shoot for the weekend of the Beemer rally(sept. 9th.) Usually a good time. Will let you know.

Cool vid!
