300 at 87 to Woods cyn is about 1 hr with a couple brief stops ( some great view points on the rim). And the section before Heber to Show Low is on NF land and about 1:30+
Both sections are very nice and very big adv bike workable. These times are moving right along. Gas available at Clints Well or Forest Lakes. Enjoy.

I'm going to head south on 93 and then west on 96/89/89A. At Sedona I'm going to go dirt to Mormon Lake.

I'm looking forward to the ride. I just can't decide if I want to switch to K60's for the dirt or leave the Battlewings on for the paved twisties.

Hey all - I'll be there. I'm riding there (from NYC!) - I already left, and am making my way down the appelations now, then across as much of the TAT as I can before slabbing the final bit.

My +1 is smarter than I, so she's flying in.

I'll have a beat up looking (by that time) BMW Sertao, with an ADV sticker on it.

We're camping in the moto section.

Hope to see you there.

As an American, you get extra bonus points for riding from NY. The international folks who "drive" or "ride" in from New Zealand, Australia, UK, Spain, etc are obviously in a category of their own.

Even I'm flying in from Los Angeles. Was going to drive my Land Cruiser, but going to meet up with some friends flying into Phoenix and splitting the cost of a rental car. Sadly the taxes on the economy car rental costs more than the rental for the car itself! I'm paying the equivalent of a 110% tax on the rental car! WTF! I pretty sure the big portion is the airport tax on the rental.

If you want to stay in a hotel haunted by ghosts, you can try the Hotel Monte Vista in Downtown Flagstaff. Get some pics of the ghosts for us while you're there.

You could try the Arizona Mountain Inn, which is just south of the I40/I17 junction south of Flagstaff on Lake Mary Road. It pretty rustic with cabins and the like, but gets good reviews on Tripadvisor. I've reserved a cabin there and it looks like there's more available last time I checked.

I am in, and will be one of the speakers on travel in South America 1:00 PM on the 19th. Looking forward to meeting other ADVs. I am staying at the Motel6 in Flagstaff. White F800 GS with Ruta 40 sticker. Dave

Schnebly Hill & Forest Road 240

Boy did you come to the right place, that's my backyard!

Schnebly Hill Road is more than passable on an adventure bike, and Forest Road 240 from there to Mormon Lake is bladed gravel. The ride up from Sedona is about a half hour as well as another 15 to 20 minutes over 240.

Anybody traveling that way is required to stop in at the Pinewood Fire Station (right on the 240 road in Munds Park) to say Hi to me and the other ADV rider boys on duty. We've got 8 of us there that'll be attending the expo on one or more of the days (we're on duty some of the time), and we'd be happy to point out some nice rides in the area. Additionally, the Forest Service has shut down a few roads in the area, but I have free maps of the Coconino National Forest in my office that I'll be happy to hand out to anyone stopping (until they run out anyway!).

So, stop by for a cup of coffee and some bike talk. You can't miss the station, and we love company.

I know it's okay to do it... I'm the Chief!!!!

Will plan on it! Should roll in that Friday early afternoon on the way to the expo. Been looking for some maps but have not been able to locate any for that area, so really appreciate anything you have to point out some good rides.

Will be traveling with another Super Tenere so should be easy to spot...

Hopefully I'll be your third Super Tenere of the day then on Friday. I'll be through later in the afternoon!
