Fond memories of Young, AZ

Thanks for the RR and nice pictures. Brings back fond memories...

A few years ago a friend and I were on our street bikes, me on a BMW K1200GT and him on an 1600 or 1800 Yamaha cruiser, decided to go to Tucson, from Payson. His GPS (set to shortest route) had us go via the Forest Service Rd 512 from Hwy 260 (Payson-Heber Hwy) down to Young and then towards Tucson on Hwy 288 (Desert to Tall Pines Hwy). We ended up way the hell out in the boonies on our street bikes. Ran into some guys on their 4 wheelers up in the mountains. Apparently they thought they were accomplishing something on their ATV's until these two crazy Canadians showed up in the same place on street bikes. What a laugh. All part of the experience while on the way to Key West, Florida I suppose. Whenever I read about Young, I think about the ride that day. What a hoot. Beautiful country to ride in.
