The closesst tracks will be in Phoenix. From Avra Valley you will be less than an hour from Firebird. I believe they have mc racing (someone help me out here), There is a track over in New Mexico that is not far away either.

I know what you mean. I need to get a set of TKC80's spooned on to my GSPD sometime this week. I'm finally back from a bunch of work (sucks) related travel and want to get out and brush up on what few skills I have

Let's ride 2/7

First service on the big Katoom is done ($260...sweet!) and I'm ready to ride. Let's do it Saturday.

Like midengineracer, my skills are not the best and my bike weighs near 500lbs so the easier the better.

Any Ideas?

Gardner Canyon??
Ironwood Monument??
Reddington Pass??

I will be calling the dealer tomorrow to see what the status is on my recall parts but I might be able to do something this weekend, depending on the time...

Ridin

Bike is being dropped off tomorrow morning, should be done by the end of the day so I will probably pick it up Friday.
I am not on call so if the guests at the hotel don't keep me up, I should be good for a ride on Saturday.
The only things I have done on my own are Reddington pass and Old Mt Lemmon Hwy (backside of Mt Lemmon, probably still closed off at the top).
If anyone else is willing to come out and lead somewhere other than those, I am up for a GS Battlewing friendly ride (I can get through a lot of stuff but it takes some time with the tires/heavy bike).

However, Wunderground is calling for 30% precip all day (worse on Sunday). This makes rocks much less fun but I will still ride, slowly, in rain; the temps are mid to upper 60's 11 am to 5 pm.

My brother called and Trumped the planned off road ride. We're going to be changing the fluids on his Harley and then taking a Road Trip through Saguaro West, Sandario to three points then south on Sasabe and hang a left to Arivaca, then back up the 19. Anyone's welcome with a start time around 10:30 or so.

I WILL be available for a ride on Saturday, Feb 14 from about 11-4pm, then I have busy weekends for awhile...

Tom

Where are you leaving from? I might participate, if just to see a Harley that has been ridden far enough to need an oil change.

+1 - Man take picture! A Harley that runs long enough to require one is like getting a clear picture of a Bigfoot ! You'll be famous !

We'll be leaving from Northwest Tucson and running down Ina road through Saguaro National West, then south on Sandario at Picture Rocks.

Weather looks good thus far...

And don't forget who's changing the fluids on that harley.....me

After I'm done with that bike, it could run on Karo Syrup

In all reality, I suck as a mechanic, my brother sucks as well, but both of us together we do okay enough to keep his beast running. As far as Harleys go, I like his. It's a Street Bob and it looks cool enough.

I'm not about to trade in the KTM for one though....

We should be leaving around 10 or so. PM me if you wanna come along.
