    We did a tour of New England many years ago on the GW. had to cross a low one steel grate lane bridge in the rain in Vermont to detour around road construction. I was puckered up tight all the way across, The bike was just wallowing around all the way. Had to stop and pull over after I got across to catch my breath. That was after driving about 5 mi on a road under construction stripped down to dirt and gravel in the rain. Bike was covered in mud. We stopped at a Visitors center a while later on the mountain and dryed out and had lunch waiting for the rian to stop. Was a great trip ecept for thos few hours of terror!

    Never been on one. I thought they would be similar to gravel?

    @IndyVictory Is one close to you in Cincinnati, it’s not nearly as long as the mighty mac but is plenty long enough to get the feel. The floating feeling is somewhat similar to gravel so stay loose on the bars, steady on the gas & it’s no biggie at all
