One day, 200 miles, big bike kinda ride (mostly easy dirt), 61 miles of pavement broken up into 3 pieces (21, 10, 30).
Wickenburg north to... Octave, Hillside, Bagdad, Camp Wood.
Back south to Skull Valley, Kirkland, Yarnell, repeat Octave to Wickenburg.
I would be up for this anytime before April 1. I need some "easy" dirt to try and rebuild some skills.

I was going to put a little shine on it and get it running again, but time and space are going to be an issue. Besides, that Yardstick wanker never organized our Lake Pleasant to Crown King Grand Prix, so why should I keep this around?

Last time it ran was probably 5 years ago, so whatever gas may be in it, is shit.

Anyway, I've had this thing since 1986, and even after sitting for a long time, it always started after a few kicks.

I'm guessing street value on these things is well over $10,000 these days.

Make me an offer I can't refuse, and it's yours.

S.C.
Might b interested.

I was reading the Phoenix region ATV Trails Guide today (c2008) and came across a side note mentioning something about a proposed option for future rerouting of I-17 through the Bumble Bee area. Evidently that option was dropped but what about the other options? I've found a few links but none that connect to anything current. Anybody know anything about this? Was it dropped completely or just put on hold for a while?

I'm thinking of doing a 180 mile loop tomorrow. Anybody want to go? North Phoenix west to the 303, down to the Tonopah/Salome hwy north of Buckeye, west to where Vulture mine road intersects the CAP, north through the east end of the Big Horn Mtns. (I think) into Wickyburg, out Constellation mine road, south down a little connector to Castle Hot Springs road to pop out at Lake Pleasant and back.

You know "bosses" only care about aesthetics. Make it look like you fixed the leak in the plumbing, look tired but willing to take on another task but at the same time eager for adventure. Boss will let you out.
