Busa??

I was thinking you were dirt riding so me going with you Sunday won't work....

No worries. I will let you know Allen if I am going to ride over and meet you guys. Probably just ride local and let you and the little wife enjoy your time.

I don't have a lot of time to burn Sunday, so I'm up at the crack of "What The Fuck Thirty" and on the road to Havasu.......Assuming a breakfast place or meeting time is ever announced.

I think it has worked out for you and Joy to have a couples weekend. Third wheel (or 4) does not need to but in on that. I'd like to still do this run when everyone else does it. It appears I will be here in May now after all as my wife has canceled our plans to go to Nebraska. I'm open for any other ideas that I can be a chase/sag vehicle if anyone wants to plan it that way. Maybe I'll check out Nightstalkers State Park run this weekend. Sounds like it's going to be an easy jaunt through Seven Springs and Bloody basin that I can tag along in the truck.

I'm looking at a couple of places. If anybody knows about Shugrue's Restaurant or The Red Onion, those both sound decent for breakfast. Mario's Italian Restaurant was excellent for dinner when we did this a couple years ago.

Alright, I give... Havasu ride postponed to some other time when more people are ready for it. We're going to head to Young for a day trip Saturday and I'm going to do a small bike ride Sunday.

Hmm...Peach cobbler on Saturday, or Little bike Torture ride on Sunday.

Easy Choice there.

Shugrue's gets high marks from a friend who stays in Havasu every summer for a week. When the ride is rescheduled, that may be a great place to go to.

What's this "or" stuff? We can meet at the same time/same place. 8 a.m. Saturday, 4-Peaks staging area?

There's talk of a run up the back way to Crown King Sunday, probably returning through Ryland Creek. I suggested adding the Bradshaw trail or maybe some other trail in the area.

"Or ", because this old man cant handle both.

I have not done the Bradshaw since the last time with you, and before the fire. That sounds fun !!

I haven't done it but it sounds fun! I would like to do more exploring up there on the smaller roads/trails this summer.
