Sand?

Buckhorn isn't to bad for sand.... it is wide open most of the way so keeping speed isn't to hard. The 800 will be perfect.

Same

I believe they are the same thing just some of the time your in the wash part and the rest your on the road. Either way it's all good.

The road is the wash in some spots, but it's not as bad as it was 6 years ago when i first did it. It seems more packed as years goes by. Here a vid from my helmet-cam 2 years ago.

Rough?

Come on now that is a pretty mild route. Once you do it a few times it's all good. In summer you can run it at night.

I don't beleive you can get to Mayer from Castle Hot Springs Road. You might want to look at going through Black Canyon City.

REIDY008 true is isnt bad, on a BIG GS i would hate it, on the 800gs it was fine probally cause it was the first time how ever arm pump came on fast
This would be a great FULL MOON ride someone should put that together......
I looked on google earth it looks like there are trails up to mayer but riding today i dont know how that is thanks for the tip ill check black canyon city:)

Also the constellation road was a breeze but i want to take that to the end past the ranch out there

I am going for a ride this Sunday (January 13th). BuckHorn Wash rd To Constellation. Food/gas in Winckenburg and back on N. mine rd (B loop section from Constellation) to Castle Hot Spring. From C.Hot Spring rd u can either take the easy section all the way to Lake Pleasant (Scenic ride) or follow me for exploring trails South east of C.Hot spring rd that connect u to N. Picacho wash rd/Quitero Country Club and exit back on hwy74.
Place & time to meet: Wild Horse Coffee, on N. Lake Pleasant Pkwy at 8:30am. Engine start at 9am.
Plenty of space for truck/trailers etc...
Any takers ? ...

looking for a pickup truck.

So I finally sold my Blazer.

Now I'm looking for a reliable pickup truck. If anyone knows of something in the $4k range let me know.

Thanks.

Few items I need to get rid of locally...

Hey guys. Getting rid of a motorcycle(ish) camera

Canon sx230 Power Shot GPS Digital Camera - $120.00??
- 12 Megapixels
- 14x Optical Zoom
- Full HD Video
- Build in GPS for Auto Geo Tagging pictures
Includes: Box, Wall and Auto Charger, 2 Extra Batteries, Memory Card


-


OK So the camera is not a "Motorcycle" item, but with the build in GPS it makes Geotagging a breeze.

Click on the title of each item for pictures.

Shoot me a PM if interested.

Thanks,
