AZ - The London Bridge Strikes Again!

The idea was to gather a bunch of talented big-bike riders and replicate the ride that took out Mil-T's V-strom last year.

This year, the players are:

CrashDBad - KTM 950 SE
goatdog - KTM 950 SE
Yardstick - KTM 950 SE
Dillon@Zenmoto - KTM 950 Adventure
Big-E - KTM 990 Adventure
ybracing - KTM 950 Adventure

We met at the Cowboy Cafe in Wickenburg to get some breakfast and let the sun come up. It turned out to be a cooler morning than some of us anticipated!

Big-E showing off his preferred trail snack, BACON!

Last year, Alamo road bit hard. We didn't sustain any casualties on that road this year. Only dust, and lots of it! Big-E stretches the legs of the LC8 where Alamo turns to Wickeburg road.

I found terminal velocity on Wickenburg road. At about 112mph indicated, the force from the wind resistance balances the thrust from the Dunlop 908 RR tire. Any more power applied only spins the tire up...

This thread's other potential title was, "The Eastern Arizona Gas Station Tour". Four thirsty Super Enduros meant we stopped at almost every gas station we saw, including this one at a small trailer park east of Alamo Lake.

They were having a fly-in poker run at the trailer park.
