Attn Arizona and New Mexico!

PLANNING TO RIDE THE CORONADO TRAIL, AKA HWY 191, AKA THE DEVIL'S ROPE. Leaving Phx at 0400 heading for Eagar riding US60 east through Salt River Canyon, Show Low and into Eagar by 1000 hopefully. Then it is on to the Rope and into Morenci. Then back through Safford and on to Mesa. Somewhere along the way I will likely camp Sunday night.
So...Anyone feel like riding some slab? Should be epic scenery!
Please PM me if you want to meet anywhere alon the route to ride.
I wont be online after 0400 Sunday April 14-

Unreal

All I can say is that this ride truly is EPIC! Imagine more than 100 miles of perfect moto road with beautiful scenery around every one of the more than 500 corners! SO very under-rated!

Diversity

Arizona has unreal diversity and you can see a lot of it on a day of epic riding.

You can't get the Varadero in the USA. Wasn't ever offered south of the border. You may be able to import one, but you'd have to check carefully.
Mines at 34,000 kilometres now, hasn't been a bad bike

Question

Great pictures!

Have a question for those of you that have ridden it. Is there any camp grounds between Clifton and Alpine? Any recommendations or places to stay away from? Not worried about water will have my own. Thanks

At least 5 USNF campgrounds spaced out along the route, and never too busy.

I'll be heading to the 191 on Sunday June 9th with a friend of mine from California. We'll probably be heading North to Farmington on our way to Colorado. I'll be looping back from Ouray and doing the Telluride loop then heading back to the valley. 3 days. If anyone cares to join us let me know. We'll be on street bikes so it'll be all pavement. Should be a good time.

Thanks for the reply. Figured with that long of a section of National Forest that there had to be something along there. Just wanted to be sure. Thanks again.

Camping

If you don't want to sleep on the ground look up Hanagins Meadow. Beautiful place out in the woods.
