trip

Paul & Bill :
You guys be extra careful over there, not that I believe Sergio will get you in trouble but as with all reports---NO Pix, Didn't happen-- So you know the rules . Tell Serg I said YO! you might relay the KTM story to him, In fact bring him back w/you if you can. Serg is OK in my books.

Will be looking forward to your RR & photos also an advisory for Bill--NO RUNNIN W/da Bulls OK Keep in touch.
Jeff

Jeff and Jay, No worries we will try to document the full experience. Between the 4 of us I am sure we will have plenty of pics to post. I think Sergio might fit in my duffel, but with the airline weight restrictions on baggage even his whole 95 lbs might be over their limit.
See you all soon, Tio Pablo (just Paul for you Gringos)

I think I may have a rare opportunity at riding this Saturday.

So I'm gonna start planning for it already.

For a little bit of a challenge I'd like to try out some new-to-me roads through Tonto.
Basically head up through Apache Trail,
hit the 288 towards Young,
make a right on NF-203 which turns into NF-202(heard that was a really nice road) up to Young.
Gas back up at Young and head home via the 288/ Across Rd. and up over Four Peaks.


View Larger Map

If link no worky click here.


if you're uneasy with the route there are various points where you can bail. The 288 is really easy. Apache Trail as well so you could get a nice day ride in and head home if you don't want to do 300ish miles of mostly dirt. :)

I've got the start point ad QC Cafe but I'm flexible. Should be a great ride.

That's the part that I've never done. If it gets too tough we could always backtrack and head for A-cross. A-cross over to Oso and 4 peaks is a nice fun & easy ride.

I'm taking Reidy's words with a grain of salt because he's a mad man on a big bike.

Julio-

Looks like a really fun ride. What time would you be leaving the morning?

I am a noob rider, but am interested in doing the apache trail section, or the 4 peaks section and then bailing for home.

Would you mind me tagging along for a segment?

it's getting hot so the earlier the better but like I said before, I'm flexible.

For now, just to put a time out there let's say kickstands up at 8:30.

As for the route
you can do Ap Trail to the dam and back.

or if you have no fear of getting lost do the entire ap trail & 4 peaks loop.

That's always a nice one.

I can go as early as you want. I usually start my stuff at sunrise. I am up to ride apache trail with you guys, or if you want to ride Counter Clockwise I am interested in 4 peaks. I don't think I would do both without someone else.

I will plan to see you on Saturday morning.

the 202 is really like the 202! just un-paved. getting there is not as easy, but very doable.

Morning ride to Canyon Lake

I rode out to Canyon lake this morning. After being passed by several police, fire trucks, and ambulance; I had a really good ride.

Something must have happened near Apache lake. The air evac was cruising past tortilla flats.
