Hey Eddy,

Is this the route for stage II to the Grand Canyon next to your GPS? Man, we need to make sure that ride gets complete this year. Maybe an overnight in Williams?

U got it. That's the rd-book from the last ride from Williams to Z Grand Canyon (via Espee rd i call it the Alien Land cuz it's big, empty and spooky) & from Tusyan to Parks via crazy awsome trails in that forest SE of Tusayn. For the Grand Canyon Ride 2013 it's a 2 days must do.
It's all ready to go i just have to connect the Stages together with good exit points or chase truck for that matter (if someone volonteer for that task it would be great)...

Hey Eddy,
It's good to see your able to get out and ride at least once in a while. Looks like some neat country you found out there.

Thanks Paul, i will need 2 or 3 riders for a recon ride around the end of April for that matter. I'll pm you for that, It's an all day ride getting lost and take notes to where's the next best turn or open/closed gates.

I took some victims out for a spin on New Year's Day too. A 250cc, 350cc, and me dominating on my 450cc.

Don't forget

Hey Eddie:

Don't forget you now have a safe & secure area for bikes, trailers & tow vehicles just seven miles north of your former staging area in Camp Verde, only 2.5 miles from Lake Montezuma.

That also includes garage, bike lift ,air compressor & tools if needed, you'll have to bring your own spares

Jeff

Sorry, can't do it. I've got the shackles on for the next month or so. Plus, my bike tried to fall apart on the last ride with Wild Bill and Zen Moto is putting it back together for me.

Riding on that mountain shelf was extremely scary . Awsome video/music as usual i liked the first song (it was played in a Dakar Video clip few years back).

Yep

Castle Hot Springs is a pretty smooth road that loops from hwy 74 back to 74. The ends are roughly 22 miles apart. Buckhorn turns off it. If you are going to do the ride the views are great and better if you start the west end and ride to the east. Very easy ride doable by all.
