Willow Springs rambling

Ride Name: Willow Springs Tortilla mountains ramblings
Date: November 23rd, 2012
Meeting time: 0745
Meeting location: Bruegger's Bagels @ River and Oracle. There is a Chevron station on the SE corner of River and Oracle to top off at before meeting.
Estimated Length of Ride: up to 125-150 mile of dirt, 120 or so miles or tarmac. Should be a good day trip.
Difficulty: meh, I'm on a 600 pound bike with a crappy front tire. Should be easy/medium. Bouncing around near Cochran road gets a bit bumpy, but nothing technical.
Notes: bring food and ample water. There's no services to stop for munchies or water until we pop out near Kelvin and ride into Kearny.

If anyone is familiar or recommends any of these roads we can easily deviate course and go exploring. I would like to explore whitlow ranch to diversion dam road to the west. Cochran road is a fun out and back as well that I think y'all would enjoy. Lots of opportunities for adv bike porn (taking exotica pictures of your bike with gnarly, awesome Arizona terrain in the background.) along Cochran to the Gila.

If anyone has questions or request, holler! I am no acclaimed master trip organizer or planner, just figured we could make some new friends and ride motorcycles over the long weekend.

I am hoping to get out on Saturday as well. We can chat about the route for Saturday near the end of the trip on Friday. I am getting a new tire put on at On Any Moto at 0900 Saturday. After I get some knobs, I'll be hitting the dirt somewhere.

Cheers,

Speedy
