I found a great place

I was on my way to Young, I took the road from Miami. I traveled North for about 25 miles. At the point where the road turns to dirt I spotted a sign that said "Beer, wine and burgers 1/2 mile". I couldn't resist and pulled in. Great food and good people. Some locals talked me in to skipping Young and taking A-Cross road to Roosevelt. I did that and it was fun. This bar is at A-Cross road and the Globe-Young Hwy. I have pictures but I can't post right now but will later. I'll also have more contact info too. This was the the high light of my trip so far.

Glad you had a nice trip XB. We ride that A cross often it is a really good little trail with nice scenery. In warmer times the ride to Young is awesome. Lone Butte is right off of the Kyrene exit for the 202. There are plenty of signs pointing it out. We will be on a pair of DR650s and a red Vstrom. Hope you can make the ride, Paul

Actually, the windshield is fine.



It's the rider that needs some practice on riding properly this bike!

Ride Saturday

All,



I have a tentative plan for Saturday for all who might be interested. Meet at the Queen Creek Café at 8:00 for Breakfast, for anyone not wishing to eat be there at 9:00. I am thinking of going to the Martinez Mine via the Box Canyon. We can then see if we can find the way to the Ajax Mine and depending on the conditions and time we can either go to Superior or head to highway 79. Keep in mind that I have not been in Box Canyon further North of the Martinez Mine before so this will be kind of a see what we can find and what conditions we are comfortable with. I have also done Telegraph road from Superior to the Orphan Boy Mine so am a little experienced with that section. Again all are welcome but I consider myself a C- rider so my pace is slow .

I am open to any changes that anyone would like to suggest but no coke ovens!!!!! I have seen the pictures of the carnage. See you all Saturday.




Bill


PS Great video Ricardo!!

I'm in +1, bringing a friend. See you all then.
Just curious, you said we aren't doing the steps. Is this the route that you turn right just after the narrow canyon walls?
That road looked wicked cool but I wasn't going to try it on the beemer. That was before I went to DeathValley with Fireman Bob and he pointed out that I was riding a hard tail dual sport.
That bike now has about 7" of travel instead of 3/4".

Yep,

If I remember correctly that's the road to Martinez canyon but it wasn't too bad, The worst part is after the old shack with basketball size rocks. I plan on leaving the bike at the shack and walking the last 100 or so yards to the mine site.

It looks like we can avoid the steps by a couple of differnt trails but if it gets to bad we can go back thru Box Canyon and take 79 to the Cottonwood Canyon Road

My thoughts are that no one should do anything that they are not comfortable with including myself.
