Bike week DS ride

I am planning on leaving the Phoenix area about 6am taking my time getting up I17, I was going to trailer to Mayer, but decided to spend the day seeing how well my new Ranazco works I thought there was going to be others going but now not sure, and I already did the pre-registration so rain or shine I am going. I have been trying to round up a roll chart holder for the ride wished I started that search sooner but anyway I figure I will be up there early enough to make the 7:30am rider meeting and hope to follow someone with GPS or a roll chart .
If anyone wants to go with me, I will be at the Waffel House @ I17 & Bell at 6am leaving by 6:15.
I wonder what the "z" route Eddy keeps talking about is like

FuzzyDude2 , there z1 z2 all z way to Z28 (not Camaro ) , come join us on Sunday and you'll see . it's o.k. ride but it has some level of difficulties in some section , Like for example Cherry rd to Camp Verde has a lot of what we call it fork busters dips small washes & rocky in some section .

Joining AZ Bike Week DS Ride.

I decided to pay the $55 and do the Bike Week ride. Hopefully I will get the GPS track today.

Besides, I still have my training wheels on & I can't go over 6K rpms.

My street riding is long gone since I've moved here. I still take a trip or 2 to CO every summer when possible w/ the R1. Now it will be a tough choice on which bike to ride!!!!!!!

DRZEDDY: Thanks a lot for the pointers.

** I am also taking Monday off if there are any takers on a ride!!!

Dietrich
I've got stuff to do on Saturday, but Monday is WIDE OPEN! What do you have in mind?

It's goin' to be a fast pace ride and possibly might alter z route once we get to Cherry rd.
Notice : it might get a little technical on NF261 & Cherry rd to C. Verde.
Eddy,

Are you going to tackle this ride after the Starbucks meet 'n greet? I might actually be able to make it to the Starbucks (only went one other time due to other obligations). I'd be up for a ride afterwards, but must warn you of my s-l-o-w and poor D/S skills.

I'll be sweeping the C route (unless I'm needed to do something other than that). Helping anyone that might be stuck, need a hand, or have a mechanical problem.

It's a super fun ride and the C route into Jerome is SPECTACULAR!!
+1

Thanks for all the work you put in to finding good route options for people. I just signed up for this ride and am looking forward to seeing everyone for this ride and great cause!

How much time will this add to the trip? Shows on Google 1 hour by freeway and 2hr 17 min this route is that true? If so might take the paved way up and come back this way? any thoughts anyone?

We're gonna do 4 Peaks. I think we're gonna do it backwards... Tortilla Flats around to 4 Peaks. If it's easier for you to meet in Mesa, we'll be com'n down the b-line.

Give me a call if you want to meet some where on the 202 in Mesa, or we'll see you there @ 9!

A frankensteined' XR650L.

And count me OUT for Sunday's ride. I was 'reminded' of another obligation I have to attend at noon in the east valley.

I might make the coffee meet in the AM, though.

Thanks anyway.
