Well, I know I had a great time! What a perfect day for riding!

Very nice to meet you all, and see some familiar faces, too. Sorry to hear about Guy's troubles... I will second the statement that this group will iron out the hickups- hey, it's the first ride we've done together, we'll get a system in place, no worries.

Looking forward to more adventures!

-Karla

I will ride Auga Caliente Road again....it was a cool ride....Plenty of run around room in the desert for you too Eddy!! Lots of room just off the road the whole trip for getting crazy in the desert and nice sand washes just 20 ft. away from the road for you to play in....Wooo Hooo. It is a little drive there (Couple of miles south of Desert Rose Bar in Arlington, AZ.), but the road is fun and was not busy on sunday morning. I did not see one car, truck or bike along the 39 miles of road. Not this weekend, but maybe on the 22nd of March. We will see.

AZ Trails Book

Kuulei just picked up the AZ Trials Northeast book this last weekend and I finally had some time to look at it and WOW does it have some great looking rides listed in it! Most of the rides would be of the less technical in nature, but great scenery, and definitely all day rides. We all know what the saying is around here, "During the Winter ride the Lowlands, during the Summer hit the Highlands". I think we can plan some great rides for this upcoming Summer season.

I am Planning to Ride Dirt to Prescott Saturday

Karla is working all weekend but I was planning to get some more riding in before our out of town guess come in. To that end I will being riding from Carefree to Prescott via an all dirt route. The course I am planning is Cave Creek to 7 Springs to Crown King Rd to Senator Highway. Reports are that all of the snow has melted and that it is pretty dry in most areas. If anyone is interested in joining me for this ride that would be great. I am planning to stop at the Mill for Lunch in Crown King and probably drinks and/or food in Prescott.

This route is great for an all day ride or there are lots of options for bailing if you are interested in only a day ride.
Depending on others interest I am planning to start at the Starbucks or Paradise Bakery at 101 and Frank Lloyd Wright.

I will create a thread on the main forum with a map and times in a bit.

I'm a So Cal resident...was out in yer neighborhood for a businees meeting and went up to Sedona with my wife to take in the beauty of that stunning place.

Did not have time to ride this trip but would love to in the future..If you ever have good DS ride through the red dirt please PM me. I would love to ride with people that know the area.

Such a cool spot...Thanks.

You can get some pretty cool places in Sedona with two wheels and a motor, but you can get to even better places if you're willing to pedal.

....Or two feet too. Its a pretty amazing place. However, AZ itself has some awesome trail riding. Let us know when your coming by next time. This group is the best and most caring group to ride with in the Southwest.

It was obvious that on foot and piloting a Mountian bike is the Politically Correct way to travel.

There was a good number of private 4wd vehicles in the valley combined with the pink jeep and other tour groups that were everywhere, this tells me there are some good navigable trails for DS bikes.

However I did not see a single bike- moto that is. Did see two GS coming out of Jerome.

There are definitely a few trails in that area accessible by dual sports (mostly Jeep trails, no singletrack that I know of). I'm not sure if there's anything in the area that's legal to ride on a full-on dirtbike, unfortunately. I'd definitely like to go back on a dual sport bike and poke around more. I have mountain biked there quite a bit, hiked some and Jeeped some.

Senator Hwy Ride on Saturday

Here is the link to the thread I started for the Ride I am doing Staurday.

I know it is late notice but I hope some can join me. As most of you know it is Big Bike Freindly and can even be done 2up:





....

Of course if you are looking for a more technical ride *looks at Eddie* you can always ride the back route from Lake Pleasant to Crown King:
