Problems with Default Route on ASA 5520

We have a bit of a problem - nothing too major that's causing us downtime but just a headache.  On our network we have a Cisco ASA 5520.  We have the gateway of last resort set to the IP address of our BGP router as we have several ISPs.  The issue is that the IP address of the gateway (BGP Router) is the first usable address of the IP address block that we lease from this ISP.  We have several other addresses from this block NAT'd through the ASA.  Basically it looks like this:

route  199.1XX.170.1 1

The problem is that from behind the ASA we cannot access any of the servers on this IP block by their external IP.  Users outside our network can reach the servers and we can reach them fromtheir internal addresses so there's no real buisiness issue for us yet but I'd like to get this resolved.  Any help would be appreciated.  I will be glad to provide any additional info needed.  Thank You.
