here's my scenario,
I have 2 WAN interfaces, i have a static route of 1.1.1.1 going out my first WAN (for testing purposes; "netwatch" rule for disabling/enabling route based on ping UP/DOWN )
now IF first WAN goes down all my traffic 0.0.0.0/0 goes out from my second WAN
when i make a traceroute for 1.1.1.1 its routed from the second WAN ALTHOUGH that i have specified it to be routed from the first WAN
NOW how does the 1.1.1.1 knows that the first WAN is reachable again SINCE the route is disabled and all traffic 0.0.0.0/0 is routed now to the second WAN INCLUDING the 1.1.1.1 ???

you would want to split the test route and general route:
so have specific route for test server over wan1
and 2nd general route for all destination over wan1

Only the second gets disabled.
