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!

Bet a few Pashnit members would like to test that speed limit.

Re: Dual-Sport dream road?

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 )!

Re: Dual-Sport dream road?

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.
