Now it was decision time - we wanted to get to Monument Valley as we had booked a space on the campground there and there are two ways: the short connection which has a dirt section at Moki Dugway, where a gravel road goes from the ridge into the valley. The road is hard pack gravel but fairly steep and has some switchbacks, but overall it was super easy to ride.
The other option would have been a loooooong loop around to stay on paved roads. We decided to take Moki Dugway - a good decision!

The scenery there is incredible and I can only recommend taking that route. It's easy on any type of motorcycle and absolutely no issue in a car.
