Notes from Karst: I made it this time, but would have been impassable when wet. CR-4 is hard packed. CR-54 is where the mud will start immediately as we found out the last time. The initial couple of miles of CR 54, besides the mud issue when wet, are good, but then it turns into a very rutted road, occasionally rocky, but very doable with some skills, even on a 1150GS.
This ride reminded me again that hard boots are a good thing to wear. On the way down my foot hit a rock on the side of the road. I was not going very fast, but it felt like my toes were shoved into my heels. Hurt like crazy for about 10 minutes, but wiggling everything around seemed to indicate nothing was broken. At home my big toe is just a bit sore. If I would have had soft boots I am sure I would have done some serious damage.
