Mogollon Rim Road

Can anyone give me a recent update on this place. The missus and I are planning to ride it tomorrow. We are riding 2up on an overloaded Tiger 800. 1000 miles from home is no place to get hung up.

Same question about Fossil Creek Trail

the rim rd, or FS300 is a great rd for your bike. you'll enjoy the scenery from the egde of the rim.

fossil creek trail, the dirt rd from strawberry to camp verde via fossil creek? its fine as well, a few sections to slow down for but nothing hair raising.

Rim Road is awesome and is usually perfectly grated.

I have ridden it a couple of times in the past couple of years and found that as one gets closer to Show Low mainenance falls off some.

There has been one long section with deep ruts that were a little difficult to ride.
If you rode outside the ruts you could end up in the ditch eventually. And if you tried to ride in the middle, you were kiind of screwed if a vehicle came the other direction.

Then there was some nasty deep lava rock in the last several miles before Show Low.

Drove it in a Tahoe about a month ago. Could have driven it with a Miata.

Have fun and post pics when you get back.

Hey Cyberdos, I was in Glenwood, NM Saturday. They had a pair of his and his Miatas for sale there. I wish I would have had a camera with me. I mean really population maybe 200 and a pair of Miatas for sale. Things you just don't see everyday.

I don't care what they say, I think Miatas are cool as hell.
