A friend and I recently rode to a tiny, isolated town in central AZ. It isn't accessible by a paved road and has only had electricity since 1965.

The ride went from 1500 feet elevation to more than 7000 feet. We traveled a bit over 400 miles that day. Great ride. I wrote about it on our club website.

I just finished part I of the post, part II to follow in a day or two:

Enjoy

Sweet. Thanks for the pics and the report.

In my experience, that's the kind of dirt road the Swing handles alright. There are other kinds I wouldn't care to travel, and don't.
Awaiting part two.
