That should be a nice ride, and I see the "rain and snow" forecasts have vanished.

I'll join ya as soon as I can manage to get one out of two bikes functioning properly.

Sucky mechanics unite.

Hip: When is this little loop of yours? I'll tag along, I could use the miles.

If the event starts at 3PM, how about a ride before heading over there??

What?

Anything in mind already?
I think I am working both my jobs this weekend so I may not be able to make anything, but if things smooth out, I will be there.

It's on the 21st, weekend after next.
I'm up for riding anywhere. Any ideas?

Well... we could do a ride through the Ironwood Forest by the Silverbell and Roskruge Mountains, or take a cruise through the Santa Rita Experimental Range/Mountains. Of course I'm open to other suggestions.

A NW ride will work for me, but I need to cut out to make it home (NW) by ~2PM. My main priority for the 21st is bringing my 7 year old daughter to the OAM presentation. Gotta keep her interested in bikes, the culture, the beauty of the SW and out of mom's hair for a spell.

Ironwood is always cool. Shall we cross the Santa Cruz at SASCO Rd? :)

I know many cool riding trails are in the Dove Mountain area, but I'm not yet familiar with them. Perhaps some of you are?

Dave

PS: I'm assuming my 600R will be out of the shop by Friday.

Check out this thread "For Dads and Daughters" if you haven't seen it. I don't have kids and it still gets me all misty eyed.

Low Down,

Make a command decision and pick a ride. We'll show up. It seemed to work well for the Meet Up

we approached it last year, but the spring runoff made it pretty deep & treacherous...

I am down for a ride. I'll keep watching here.

I know a good 4-6 hour loop we can do... Particularly a 2-hour border road section that is basically an arrow-straight motocross track. Easy air all day long...

The Ironwood Forest sounds good to me (the route by the Roskruge Mts. will be a first for me, so I'm not sure about the terrain), and I know the road by Silverbell is fine for big bikes... One way or another we can get to west Grant Rd. easily from this ride. We could meet up at the gas station around Cortaro and Silverbell (Conoco?) at 9AM.

What do you think??
