I'd second the suggestion to use the "assign the worst classification",
with the caveat that a closer approximation is often very helpful. There
are a lot of lesser roadways that have significant sections that are "not
great, but drivable" (or ridable) on either side of a section best suited
for a 4x4 or off-road-oriented motorcycle with appropriate tires and pilot
skills. Knowing how long that particularly tough section is incredibly
helpful in making a "ugh, we better go around" or "nah, we can make it
through" decision.
