Mechanic?

Does anyone have a mechanic that they like to work on small dual sports in the east valley?

I sure do miss Dillon when he was in Mesa!

Jason Hiles at AZMOTO. He is a really good mechanic. He was the lead mechanic at the KTM shop back in the day.

He is on Greenfield and Virginia.

Broke in my new tires at Rolls OHV today.

Here is my friend jumping in CRF 450.



Here are my new tires:

Shinko 244 on the rear and Pirelli MT21 up forward.

Thanks to everyone for an awesome day. I can finally say that I didn't sweat my ass off on a ride!
We need to explore all of that NW area much more when it is another 10 degrees warmer.

I forgot my camera and my cell phone pics got deleted We wound up taking the shorter loop and it worked out perfect as it was getting late.

Definitely need to go back and see the rest soon.

Everyone forgot their camera today. Stan was the only one to take any pics.

Oh, If that was a fellow ADV inmate that I nearly ran into cutting the corner I am truly sorry. I nearly had to clean out my shorts. I guess that is why I normally don't listen to music off road.

Not bad

Nothing like Coke Ovens. You could do it on your Super Tenere as long as you stay on the main route up the back way. There is alot of bonus sections that would take a small bike with a talented rider to make it up but you can bypass them no worries. I can lead you up that way some time if you like or there are a few other ways that are easier if you want to dip your toe in slowly.

BigE and I were heading south on Castle Hot springs around 1:30 ish yesterday and passed a group of 4 riders going up...was that your group perhaps ?

It was a chilly day out there for sure !

It sure was and I thought that looked like BigE

It was chilly for sure and we made sure we were back in town before the sun went down.

Pick a shop based on their web art

Stay with them based on their good mechanics. :)

Scene moving to Tempe I have taken my bike to Moto Center several times. Jordon and David seem like very honest and knowledgeable guys. They are also open on Mondays which is a convenient for me so I can get all weekend booboos fixed or replaced timely :)
