Is that the road west out of CB?

Yes. Go through the town follow signs to scenic by way.

Upper end of town you make a left then about two or three blocks you will make a right and head out west northwest.

No problems I do about 50 on it. However if it rains I would avoid it for 12 hours.

It is 31 miles from end of pavement to beginning of pavement. There is a two miles stretch in the middle paved as it goes by a rich guys cabin.

SG will do it no problem. While it is not world renowned for its dual sport capabilities like the FLSTFB is, it would still be good on this road!

thanks bbally,
I've been wondering that. I have a family member that has a condo on Mt. Crested Butte that I could stay in. I just didn't want to have to ride the hour down to Gunnison every day to get out of there. If that road is doable, then I would have an option to leave and go a different direction.

Just remember most years Kebler (IE the whole road) closes about the first of December and won't be cleared again until mid April earliest and 1 June some years.
