If you want to explore our country but can't afford the big ADV bike or the time for multi day trips there are alternatives. I have a 1995 Honda XR65L with a heart transplant thanks to MrFixit in WS that I rode from Prescott to Grand Canyon & back home yesterday. 439 miles.
Almost 5:00 time to get rolling.
Dawn sky heading east.
Took Old Cheery Cut Off & GWT over to 17.
Up Copper Canyon to Camp Verde
Up 118 to Beaver Creek & up into the forest.
Getting hot here but would cool as soon as I hit the forest.
Up & over to Winona Rd & up to 40. Gas & up & across the Res. My favorite part of the ride. Desolate & serene.
No water in the Little Colorado today.
A bit windy.
Bookin on the Res.
You can go south & take the Gray Mountain Truck Trail heading north west from 89 up to 64 but I wimped out today & took the gravel Rd over to Tusayn.
Gas in Tusayn, west by the Tin House, down Espee RD & west on FR 6 into Williams, down Prekinsville RD. out through Drake & home.
Yes I was there!
Last gates for today. Great country I have here to ride in, but anywhere you are riding on a motorcycle is the best. So fill those tanks & get out there & see our beautiful world
