Pretty cool.

I found that on Google Earth. I wasn't to far from there a few weeks ago. We just didn't know where to go so we followed the roads that looked good.

Looks like a house or a ranch...

A friend of mine and I rode south from Arivaca on Ruby Road all the way to Nogales. We checked out Warsaw canyon roads and California Gulch as well. One road going south from California Gulch took us...

San Manuel gas station - no gas

The salt and pepper place on the east side of San Manuel has no gas. I did a ride over Mount Lemmon this morning to Oracle, then Webb road to San Manuel. I knew I would be close on gas if I came over...

That looks like a good road. I saw a few pictures on Google Earth and from what I see my Multistrada with street tires should work fine. Wow. Never saw that road before.

I forgot to say thanks for the info about the "Young" road. I've been wanting to try that for a long time and I haven't been able to. Good to hear that it's nicely graded.

My goal is the Grand...

I saw mention of the OnAnyMoto event this Saturday. It should be good. I'll be there manning the Ducati booth (given that things work out). I'm not an employee, just a lowly club president who...

I may be doing a big ride soon (like a week long, that's big for me), and I'm wondering about the road north out of Rosevelt toward Young. It's mostly dirt. I'm going to be on my Ducati Multistrada...

Ahh yeah, that would be me. My DR's suspension is so bad that I have to go really slow, and it's not very graceful. I keep reading about how good TW200s are for slow stuff... I have a friend that has...

Heh, nice rack! I've never seen a rack on a supermoto bike on the track before. You didn't happen to have that at the go kart track in Tucson did you? I used to ride my 998 there a little bit until I...

Nice. I wonder if paying the extra money for a newer KLX250 is really worth it in the long run. Maybe for really gnarly off roading, but the older bike has it's merits. They are getting pretty cheap...

If you don't know...

You should check out Mt. Lemmon (paved), and there is a dirt road down the backside which is reasonably easy and a nice ride.

Also, Reddington road is pretty easy, cars are...

Much obliged.

I wish I was doing more riding these days. I might be soon though, life changes and all.

I probably should get a better camera.

It's a '99. I think the shock is rebuildable, if so I'll just get that done but thanks. Both ends are fully adjustable, which is nice. I think only the '98 and '99 street legal ones were like that.
