Usery pass. Call me if you want more detail. it's a moderate ride. The trails itself isn't too long but should make for a good half day of riding.

Saturday Ride

Sorry about the late reply but I would like to ride along if that is OK. I might head towards Tombstone and Bisbee if time permits afterward.

Well I made it back home in one piece just a little beat up. Aside from going over the bars I had a blast. Was nice to meet BIG-E, Monte and Desert Dog. Hope to do some more riding soon. Thanks....James

Good on ya

Well good for you Paul, now I can stop & help you pick up a fat pig. Oh yeah don't forget to hit the gym---it don't help but you'll feel

better about picking it up after all a 500# pig is still a 500# pig & it will spit you off and will get the both of you dirty &

the 500# pig will like it You ---not so much.

Day Trip Idea?

Hi All,

I hope this is the right place to ask, but I'm going to be staying in Fountain Hills in ~March 15 and wanted to rent a bike. I was out there last year and rented a BMW R1200RT, which I thought was great (although a little clunky at low speeds). My wife and I went up to Snowflake then south through Show Low back to Fountain Hills, which was awesome although just a bit long for my wife. We covered about 380 miles.

Does one have a rental place they'd recommend? So far the front runner is http://www.azride.com. I'm torn between renting the BMW again, or going with the Ducati.

Any route recommendations?

Thanks!

Great video DD. I felt you pain & exhaustion. My advice for what it's worth before this is no longer fun for you, get rid of that tank & get something more off road friendly & have way more fun out there

Rent the GS again. And if she isn't scared of doing some of-roading follow this route.

It's a fantastic and beautiful loop.

Point D is an easy dirt road.

from points E through F it's a little bit more rough but nothing too bad. Take your time and enjoy the scenery. I think you guys will love it.
