That might've been us! Glad we went around the sign. Water crossing was good fun.Awesome you got to ride with your pops. I'm proud another TW rider has gone around the sign and through the washout near Banner Mine. My wife and I were riding in the other direction as you two and we didn't see a road-closed sign coming from that direction. Didn't see a closure sign until the one you stopped at. Also, another pat on your backs for riding through the "famous" creek crossing. So many big "adventure bikes" don't attempt either the washout or the creek crossing.
I think it was you two returning I saw ride through Horseshoe Bend. What a good part of the IDBDR you rode.
