Yeah, it's covered in sand, has potholes like bomb craters and sometimes has no runoff before falling off the edge...

It's a lot of fun.

Yeah !!! I was watching those cliffs, waiting for someone coming sliding from behind and disappear down one of them.....not to mention those huge yellow signs on the middle of the road probably warning about a creater or something....

My kinda of ride!!

Dodging stuff like double semis, trucks pulling caravans, potholes, cliffs, wildlife, cops, muppets on cel phones whilst driving etc etc

Awesome

Thanks for posting;)

Miles thanks for posting that clip. It really goes to show the benefits of being on an international forum. Even if I travel to the US my chances of finding such a back road is zip. We have got some crap roads down here, but that road is in another league. And WTF r those big "END" signs doing in the middle of the road?

Great video Miles, and what a fantastic road. I truly expected to see someone go over the the edge, hats off to two very good riders. :037:
Most of my life, I drank whiskey, rode bikes, and chased women..........the rest of it I just wasted.

Yianni,

Dunno what you mean by this ^^^^

Signs are VERY purposeful and accurate,

They mean just that, "END" of the road and start of dirt-track / Off road section !!

My friend Robert wanted the incriminating evidence removed. Sorry.

If you really want to see it, PM me and I'll send you a link to the video.

That was nuts!  But not for the occasional green tree dotting the landscape, I would have sworn you were riding around on Mars.

When your friend pulled ahead at the beginning of the video, I was thinking you just let him go and sensibly turned around and went home.  Then, I see you pull up at the turn around point...   :008:

Nice job!
