At the end point you can either go left or right, both will eventually lead to fish canyon road onto gardner canyon and back to highway 83. Stop in the town of sonoita for a break and then slab back. There's some good riding further south too but might be a bit much for one day.
Be sure to click the little "3D" tag where the "Driving Directions" are and it will give you a cool little 3D fly over of the route.

I always turn around and double back, but from there you can hop on 19 and slab it back to Tucson.

Ruby Road is nice. It's an excellent alternative to the backside of Lemmon.

How many F-words in this video? I counted 900, but I can't count.


Is this video a real threat or some sort of joke? I hope it's a joke... for his (I think) sake... Those kicks looked pretty threatening. I almost set my beer down and ran for my life.

I took off at A a couple of weeks ago but took a left halfway to B & climbed back up to 83.
Be aware the first 1/4 or so of that route is basically riding up a sand wash.
I got to practice picking up my GSA before I dropped tire pressure..

I did some back country 4x4 up to the radio towers south of Patagonia a few days ago, and we saw tons more trails and roads carving over the mountains that were too overgrown/narrow dropoffs to keep going with the Toyota's, but it would be pretty sweet to explore the region on two wheels!

This link contains about a dozen "Exploring Tucson Videos" - I think these videos represent our area well:

I don't have maps and I can't remember how accessible these routes are, but I've ridden a few of these on my obese GS, before I went to the nimble 690e.

Since there has been no mention of the Red Garter tonight, I'm going to assume no one is going.

I think it's time to put out a notice on the Tucson Craigslist about next months meet up and see if we can drum up some interest.

If the planets ever align in a manner that will allow me to have one of the proper Thursday evenings off I'll certainly come out.

free tailbag

I've got no use for this and it's taking up space. I don't have the time/gumption to deal with trying to sell it. Free if someone wants to pick it up. It's a nelson-rigg cl150. Has straps and rain cover. Main zipper is a little worn but it works. I'm near speedway/craycroft - at least for another week.

Edit, OK, that was fast, looks like bag is gone. I've also got these gloves in the FM for sale. I'll do $20 local pick up.
