    Dual-Sport dream road?

    Here's a gem of a road leading out to McKenzie point along the north side of knik Arm here in Alaska, just north of Anchorage. First time I've even seen a dirt road with this kind of speed limit!

    Looks like a well graded dirt road, sort of like a teaser pic. Hmmm, wonder where that road leads to? But speed limits on a dirt road? Get out, I'm going for 80 (seen them go faster in the Dakar race )!

    Yep. It's graded, and fairly smooth. 55 is no problem. If one should, say.....accidentally push it up to about 75 or so in a blue Chevy 4X4, you can get a little drift in the corners.
