You can ride from Florence to Benson on almost all dirt.
What he said. I couldn't remember the names for the Freemam/Willow Springs left-right.

Rumor has it that somewhere between San Manuel and Benson you can make a left and go to Wilcox. I always seem to miss that turn.

Sounds like you're having some fun.

That left is just after you hit the pavement. Your first dirt road Left.

The bad weather moved in and I guess my riding is comming to an end. Yesterday I drove the truck to the Motorcyclist Cafe B&B in Show Low to visit Dean (Deans BMW) and Pam. It started snowing and I barely made it home.

Thanks to all you guys that offered ride suggestions. I'll be back the same time next year and I'll continue the thread.

The last time I was in Young I came from the South. It was very scenic as I was on a long narrow black top road that climbed high into the hills. Near the last part of it it started raining hard, then it turned to wet snow. The road turned to dirt, than deep mud. I was on the Buell with street tires. I had my hands full trying to make it to town. This was the end of December. Anyway, I'll let ya know.
