Thw AZBDR looks like an awesome ride. My Pirelli's got a little squirrely in some of the heavier gravel but it was all controllable. The picture of just the road has a lot less of the large gravel I experienced on the hill climb I talked about. I can't imagine that the WABDR will be that bad either except for in some spots. Pretty sure that experience, a well-tuned bike, a having a great riding buddy will be the difference makers.
