What are you riding? I live over in Dove Mountain and will most likley be going out around the Tortolitas somewhere(state land gate is only 1 1/2 mi. from garage). Saturday is out for me but Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday are good, weather depending(rain).

Don't worry, They only shoot at KTM's. Your safe.

Here is a link to some photos taken on the Bull Springs road (Amado-Patagonia) on 12/28/12.

The Bull Springs route is quite fun and not very difficult. Thanks to a fellow ADVrider Kevin on his KTM for finding my license plate. I lost my rear plate and bracket after our last stop at the ruins before heading into Patagonia.

RG this Thursday?

Arrived in Tucson yesterday and will be staying out at Desert Trails RV Resort on San Joaquin Rd for the next few months. Had a hectic 8 day drive dodging storms along the way and need a few days to recover, but managed to get the new DR650 off the truck and had a quick ride. Everything looks good to go.

Hopefully the RG will be on this Thursday (1st & 3rd?) and I'll get a chance to renew aquaintances.

Bob

We stopped to take some picture and explore a little along the way so we spent about 3.5 hours on the route from Amado to Patagonia. I am sure you could cut an hour off of that if you kept moving.

Ron, KTM owners are used to going back and finding lost/fallen off parts... just ask Allyn ...

The sheriff was up there talking to the shooters yesterday. Guessing he was asking them to go pick up all the orange plastic.

Neither, we were relegated to the kids table near the "A-Team" (anarchist) group. They gave us the coordinates to hell I think
