Looks like I'm in for this ride. Do I need anything other than I.D. to get on post?

i just called them... civilian folk with a MC endorsement can go thru, but still need atgatt and a reflective vest....

and at this exact moment, having left my car at work, i have exactly "zero" reflective vests laying around. I could grab it on the way to post easily enuf, if everyone else has something.



i hate the stupid reflective vest thing.

I have vest in Hereford that someone could borrow, if they're coming through here.

Skip post? Discuss at breakfast, no vest either.

They were out of chorizo and don't take credit cards at the H92 cafe.

But the pass was nice, the weather was great, and no parts fell off the KTM.

Woohoo!

ride

it was good, I was amazed that the tourances could hold on the dirt! I am looking forward to getting some more aggressively treaded tires though.
I was disappointed that my chorizo burrito didn't have chorizo.

Speaking of tires, anyone interested in a set of Tourance EXP with less than 500 miles on them? If I can get a taker I will order my more dirt oriented tires.
110/80R19M/C 59V
150/70R17M/C 69V
Also have some yamaha brand saddlebags($10), a pair of aftermarket turn signals($5). And for a drz 06(which i think covers 02 to 08) I have a lowering kit($10) and a set of wolfman luggage racks according to info will fit BMW F/G 650 SINGLE, HONDA XR650L, KAWASAKI KLR650 07 AND OLDER, KTM 950SE, SUZUKI DRZ400S & SM, YAMAHA WR250R) a unused oil filter.
I will check the box for anything else im getting rid of as well

i dont think the wolfman racks will fit all those different bikes, but anyone interested is welcome to put them on their bike to see if they fit.

Hey everyone,

Gonna be in the sierra vista area for 2 days and will have my 990 with me. I know nothing about the area, but saw on google earth that there's two peaks (miller and Ballard) nearby and tombstone.


I can figure out how to see tombstone, but can any locals here give me the short story on riding those couple of peaks (day rides)? Where the trail heads are, type of riding, etc?


I'd mostly be interested in road that spans the peaks end to end, not necessarily a loop. I'm looking to cover miles, not challenge myself, since I'll be by myself.


Or, can someone here tell me where to find this stuff out? Any good mc shops in SV that could give me the low down.


Thanks for any tips.

rides

when you gonna be down here, and how long do you want to ride?
mammoth to benson, benson to patagonia on 83, patagonia to sv on duquesne rd to parker canyon, either ft huachuca(hi viz vest, gloves, boots, helmet required) or south on montezuma canyon rd.
tombstone, middle march east to 191, then to 181, then right turn just before monument onto pinery canyon road over the chiricahuas, then north to i 10 to north 191, top of mt graham.
there are alot of camping in the area, or hotels, let me know what your general plans are and i'll see if i can get the high points to you.

carr canyon is a short dirt road ride, couple of nice overlooks. middle march is a dirt road east from tombstone with some history.
best peaks for riding are chiricahuas and mt graham by safford.
patagonia south to hereford/sv has some good flatland views, montezuma pass has a nice view.
