after a most excellent breakfast at cafe emporium, we head up north on hw33. i think there were 28 riders? i lost count since riders are bailing out and more joining in all the way to maricopa. we split into 4 groups to make it easier for the cat herders.

group 2

still some snow at the higher elevation especially in the shade

here are some of the boys getting ready for quatal canyon

it started easy, but deceiving

we caught up with the fast group 3 which was led by todd

hard to see here, but bt bent his tracking arm when one of the big dips caught him by surprise

dannyG was sayin to himself that if this is a sailboat, i could fix this...huh

good thing about bmw riders, they tend to help each other

meanwhile, johnnyG took a break from fixing his bent pannier

sorry, johnny your number was called but the good thing all 4 spills that day are slow speed. btw, he likes to take home soil samples

nothing much group 2 could do but leave them and find help in maricopa

now you can see why they stopped

as my bike lays on the ground, here comes big todd picking the right line

more later
