Interesting ... I got to BCR as soon as gates opened and thought the road was bad, lots of dust, potholes.

I think the dust is like water and once a pothole forms and a tire falls inside more dust is ejected.

(I left about 24-hours later because I thought it was too hot.)

One year I walked around to gate road to see where the dust storms began and observed huge RVs kicking them up going too fast.

I'd forgotten about it 'till this thread was resurrected...

I know I made those behind me crazy (it could take me 15-25 seconds for the worst potholes) ....using a very steady foot on the brake to go in fits and starts, as without a lot of braking, I was in fear of the bouncing displacing my bikes on the rear rig, which I never thought would be subjected to the hundreds of very bad potholes.

Also, because of knowing one CAN NOT pull into (without the popo saying I can't be there) that last open area, fenced with cones, right next to the main road, I stopped 100 yards away as far to the right as I could (no traffic in that lane at that point) and made sure everything was secure.
