It was great to meet all of you, and I look forward to another ride. Here are a couple of more pics from the ride.

Hangar Cafe

I don't know about AZ Ave and the 202 but on Cooper and the 202 there's a place called The Hangar Cafe which is pretty good and their breakfast is excellent. The place is small though so it can get crowded quick.

Address is:
1725 E Ryan Rd, Chandler, AZ 85286

Do you allow new comers on your rides? (thinking the Mar/02 ride)
Riding a 650 Dakar. I have not done much single track or technical, mostly dirt road, gravel etc.

I'll try to make it. Saturdays usually suck for me but even if I don't go riding if you guys meet nearby I'll try and make it out.

I had a blast last weekend and the next ride sounds like fun too. I'm down for the 2nd.

So, are any of you interested in a once or twice a month evening get together? My old CA group used to do this and between the beer, food, ride planning and tall tales it was a damn good time and a great way to meet people with common interests.

We also had tech days that covered various topics from maintenance to upgrades and farkles. I taught at some and learned a lot at others.

Whatcha all think

I was going to go ride up at lake pleasant with Eddy but he cancelled. I'm up for a ride on Sunday. You guys interested in checking out Bulldog Canyon? I haven't been in a while. It's moderate to tough riding in some spots but not too much. I did it on a DR650 last time.

I'd be interested in something like this. Of course my garage is always open for anyone to tool around. I may not have the best tools but I've got ductape, a hammer and a screwdriver. What could possibly go wrong?

JayHawk,

Great idea on the tech days and would definitely be in. I will be ready for a new rear tire soon.


Cyberdos,

I would love to ride some single track but will need another week before I am released for heavy lifting and if I am riding single track I know there will be lots of picking up the DR.

Hopefully someone will take you up on the offer for Sunday and let me know if you wouldn't mind showing this noob some trails in the future.


Looking forward to next Saturday


Bill

I'm always up for a place I have never been. I will check with the klr crew if they up to it.

No one is up for bulldog. Too tough I guess and seem to think you need a land permit and ohv sticker.

You need a permit to enter the area which can be acquired by visiting Tonto National Forest website. You also do need an OHV sticker. You guys don't have OHV stickers?

It's a little tough at spots but I did it on my DR650 a bunch of times.

I was invited to do some riding at Rolls so I'll be headed that way. Gotta shake the rust off since I haven't done any real riding in a while.

We'll have to put together that Bulldog ride Cyberdos. I have never been there and would like to check it out. I think we talked about that before, but I still haven't been out there.
