That's what happened with us on Saturday 3 flats that's ~ 3 hours behind schedule so we had to bailed out and come back to Pines before dark. We were trying to cover 145 miles off-rd only, black top not counted. We had some GPS/navigation issues around Chavez Pass .

Awesome ride report & pics, Tom! I heard from Paula you got back after 9pm.. brutal.. How about some shorter rides for a while?

We should think about going up to grand falls during this monsoon season.. might get a lot of water flowing through it.

I'll give Kim a call & see if he wants to go, too.

I like that loop you did. Did you go across hwy 64 through the grand canyon, or cut across the dirt from tusayan? you probably didn't have time to take any more dirt, since you were heading for the gray mtn truck trail. That was a lot of miles.. especially solo. We may have to pull your permit.

Great RR

Great Report Tom. Looks like you had a good ride (WIth the exception to the flat of course).

And you wouldn't need anything to prop the bike on, he would just lift it up while you removed the wheel
