I know the sign you are speaking of... It's on buckhorn creek just before reaching castle creek. You should have just taken the road to the left (North) it takes you up & over a couple of hills & drops into Castle Creek. Most of the guys who ride that route are coming from the lake and never see that sign.
Did you turn around? ...and head back to Wickenburg via the same route?
That would make a good place for your photo game!!! Ooops should I have mentioned that...

Came across a huge "no trespassing" sign (facing me) on what I thought was a major public road. Have seen lesser circumstances since. Was I in err to turn around? Was the sign misalligned? How do I tell?

cycle gear on reem off the 303 MIGHT have some, usually have a 606 or two.

whats that dealer off the I-10 in avondale? they might have a few.

ride now off 101 ad t bird, MIGHT have something ut i doubt it.

we simply have shit for DS type stuff in this city, i keep thinking about opening up a shop that caters to DS and ADV riders but there must be a reason none of the local shops is getting into it very heavy.

Troubleshooting WR250R

Anybody in here a bike mechanic or know of a good one in the PHX area? I'd rather not get ripped of at the dealership if I don't have to.
My 2010 WR250R isn't cooperating with me and doesn't want to start. I suspect something in the EFI system, maybe even the fuel pump although the pump does run.
Was hard to start for a day or two and didn't want to run right. Next day...wouldn't even attempt to start. Nope, not out of gas.
