I rode up from Oracle today to the gate at the top of the F.S. road.
No issues a few muddy spots.
The gate at the top was locked, but I think you could ride around it
if so motivated.

Twist it, Max

Allyn and Cathy,

I finally found the video that I thought of while you two were warming up your bikes on the last ride. You two-stroke hooligans...

Unfortunately some developments at home have led me to put my WR250R for sale. Figured I'd link it here in case there was local interest.

did the bull springs road 2 up with my daughter and all my camping gear. wanted a "shake down" run to test everything and see what our limits were together/loaded on the bike. have a much better idea now. had lunch at the velvet elvis, then to senoita and madera canyon to home. not a bad little day. only thing that needs work is the seat. gonna call carlos tomorrow....



laters,

laramie

Jason, I have a gel seat I will sell you cheap. That low fender looks good...until you get in your first mud and then the thing breaks like a cheap watch.

Well dang. I met up with KampberBoB yesterday, and we rode out Redington Pass with intent to go up Mount Lemmon Control and down the paved side, but we had conflicted reports on the Control Road condition, so we opted out. It was getting a bit late, as well. Now I know!
