We just did 143 (Bullsprings Rd) 2 weeks ago, but did Flux Canyon next. I think 58 is just paved/dirt road.

I may be interested in joining you and Arivaca Junction would be better as I'm riding from Tucson.

11am at Arivaca Junction works for me.

We could ride up east side of Santa Ritas and head over Gunsight Pass?

Breakfast? How about the "famous" Cow Place at the west side of Arivaca Junction and I-19 at 10am?

Good.
I should be able to get there by 9 if not order up.
Gunsight Pass will work, I just drove it with the SO
in my 4runner last week, It will be more fun on a
moto.

Twist it, Max

The Cow Palace is the place with the horns, right? If so, they shut down a few months ago.

I think that I saw BobM and someone on a CRF250R/X or CRF450R/X about noon on Helvetia Road as I was returning home.

That is/was the Longhorn. The Cow Palace is across the street.

The Cow Palace is across the street from the Longhorn Grill that's up for sale. We had breakfast there - it was good. And lunch at Velvet Elvis in Patagonia was even better.

John - I took this picture of Grizzzly at about noon on Bullsprings Rd:



but we were also on Helvetica Rd at about 4:30pm after riding over Gunsight Pass.

Glad you liked that road(143,Bull Springs) friends. We stumbled across it during The Overland Expo out of Amado in 2011. No pictures of the restaurant/lounge with the big cowhorn/skull motif though?....unique. If you are ever over in SO NM look me up. I will also be at Desert Daze in March also.The biggest problem we ran into down in that area was a lot of locked gates on all the roads.We have most of them open over here in NM.

No need to "stumble across" the good stuff around here - most of it is on the DualSportMaps.com track-sharing webite.

Here's a pic of the Longhorn as it looked a few weeks ago (I omitted the For Sale signs from the shot).

Neat. Thanks, brings back good memories of good times.... we drank so many beers there that night we could barely find our campsite across the freeway BobM. What the Hell is a "track sharing site"? We just dead reckon and stumble into the good stuff. We are part time New Mexicans after all so.... planning??? Just too organized for us.
