Attn Arizona and New Mexico!

PLANNING TO RIDE THE CORONADO TRAIL, AKA HWY 191, AKA THE DEVIL'S ROPE. Leaving Phx at 0400 heading for Eagar riding US60 east through Salt River Canyon, Show Low and into Eagar by 1000 hopefully. Then it is on to the Rope and into Morenci. Then back through Safford and on to Mesa. Somewhere along the way I will likely camp Sunday night.
So...Anyone feel like riding some slab? Should be epic scenery!
Please PM me if you want to meet anywhere alon the route to ride.
I wont be online after 0400 Sunday April 14-

Unreal

All I can say is that this ride truly is EPIC! Imagine more than 100 miles of perfect moto road with beautiful scenery around every one of the more than 500 corners! SO very under-rated!

Diversity

Arizona has unreal diversity and you can see a lot of it on a day of epic riding.

On top

After about 30 miles of white knuckle riding through tight twisties and switching back up the mountain the rewards just keep coming

I have been looking at that ride. I was planning to go south to north and incorporate more dirt on the way there and back. I don't know if those dates would work, but maybe mid-May sometime.

Yes, mid May would work for me too.

MidMay would work for me too. I can't do dirt anymore now that I got this bike, but I will ride the Rope with you. I am pretty sure I have ridden with you before anyway. I used to be hell on dirt with my XRs, and had the user name Judoka. I just had to accept that I cannot slow down on dirt and bought a sport touring bike. Let me know.
