Big Bend Country - Pinto Canyon

A couple of us broke in our new GSW's with a trip from Austin to The Big Bend Country a couple of weeks ago. It included a trip from Ruidosa to Marfa on Pinto Canyon Road. The OE Conti Trail Attack tires don't look that great for dirt, but no problems other than a lot of wheel spin on the uphill section after stopping at the proverbial "fork in the road". Don't stop.

Here's a video of the dirt or southern portion (20 miles) of Pinto Canyon Road:

It's a great little ride and no problem for "dual sport" tires - meaning more road than offroad!

Explored by motorbike: USA, Canada, Alaska, Mexico, France, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Vietnam. Videos: Alaska:; Mexico: ; Austin to Indy: ; Morocco: ; Big Bend:
