That may be tough. There are certainly some trails out there but you never know when you'll run into a locked gate. You may want to get in contact with lamotovita. He knows that area much better than I do.

Question Offroad in the Phoenix area

Hi folks, I am planning a trip to your area Thanksgiving week 2014 for 3-4 days. I'll be coming from Raleigh, NC. Most of my riding is mud, clay and sand, with as many rocks and hills as I can find.

I got a taste of the desert last year riding the Vegas area on a rental F800GS. Looking forward to renting something much more off roadable. Any thoughts on rentals or trails in the Phoenix area would be greatly appreciated. If anyone has time to show me the trails, that would be even better. Thanks

Looks like a great time, unfortunately I will be leaving that day. We fly in on Sunday and I plan on riding Mon.-Wed. I might have to pre-ride the COKE OVENS for you all, especially if someone local has time to ride during the week.

Thanks for the suggestion.

4play usually runs a pre-ride with a small fast bunch of folks. If I'm available I'll try to make it.

If not then there are always plenty more rides that you can do.

Relocation help wanted

Hi all,
I'm looking to get a recommendation for a real estate person to help my wife and I relocate back to the East area. We'll be buying a home but need to rent a place for a couple of months while going through the process and our current broker has been less than helpful finding rentals requiring less than a 1 year lease. I've considered buying an RV to stay in short term but haven't followed up on the idea. Having spent a lot of time in them over the years, hotels would be my last resort.


So if you know someone who can help us or have any other suggestions I'm all

Try some of the RV parks for park model rentals. This time of year might be harder but in 2-3 months there will
be lots.

I am going to goof around at Rolls OHV. Nothing Special. Just a mellow ride from Pobrecito to 4 peaks road.

Sandy Ride today at Rolls OHV with Julio, Stan, and Ricardo. I am looking forward to the gopro footage. Here are a few pics from today.

Thanks to Julio for filming all my carnage and to Stan for pedaling the bikes up the hills.


Bikes lined up at our first cove.


Sand Washes were the majority of our miles today
