I did 191 a few weeks ago. Rough road and lots of loose gravel.

Thanks for the head's up Bill. Jim and I were talking about taking a new "immigrant" over for a run there before long.
Much appreciated!

I often do the Wickenburg/Yarnell/Prescott/Jerome - Haunted Hamburger - and return in reverse for a fun 1/2 day ride. Weekends can get a bit congested on the twisties when stuck behind slower moving traffic, so I try to take a day off in the middle of the week for these "therapy rides"

Your right. I also did the 191 a few weeks ago. My brother wanted to see the place my GT went over the cliff. The gravel is all over and the same color as the road so it's hard to see. It's just not a fun road.

Sound familiar @C 4 ? RE: Spring gathering with no so great conclusion.

His post made me think of your "adventure". (Sorry if it brings up bad memories)

This can be a nasty route for sure. Gotta be on your toes if it's your first time through.
