Seems that website reviews all the mountain roads in AZ. It said it was curvy and lots of slower turns. It looked like you can a demo ride on that site. You might also be able to google earth drive it for a good visual.
Thanks. Yes, I used GoogleEarth and looked in 3D also. I do that as a normal routine. Allstays shows some steep long grades in the curvy section as well, but I think I could do it. Anyway, from where I am located now in western NM near AZ border, and given I need to be back in Raleigh, NC by Nov 1. I think Iwill head SE instead tomorrow to get ahead of the cold front that will drop down below I-10 between El Paso and Abilene. Iím worried if I wait out the cold front in Tucson where it wonít be freezing and donít start heading back east until mid-week I might not make it back by Nov 1 if an problems arise.
