Or, something out in the Ironwoods, past Silverbell mine? Never ridden out there but spent a lot of time above it.

At 5am this morning it was already 88 degrees. Even on the bike it was hot. So much for my early morning "cool" ride.


ANYBODY going to Garter tonight ?

I've been watching, waiting for the ride to come together. We did a lot of that area a couple years ago going to the Overland Expo.

I'm going to pass on this one. I need a new front tire and I just sunk a few bucks into getting my truck fixed. I need to make this one last at least until next payday.

I also have rides planned for Sunday and Monday. Sunday I'm going to show a newby the "easy" way to Dudleyville. Monday, I am riding with my son, which could very well be our last with him on his 04 YZ250F (he wants to sell it, has other priorities). This is a rare treat that I don't want to miss!

Is it this Sunday that you are going to lead the newbie? Would you consider another newbie in you pack? Since I'll be in the area Sunday as well, may I tag along on your ride?

FYI everybody while riding for the next 2 weeks :

part of an article this morning:

Shotguns will be kicking as dove season gets going in southwestern Arizona.
Thousands of hunting enthusiasts will descend on area fields and washes beginning Thursday to kick off the two-week dove hunting season.


many people will wait until the holiday weekend to maximize their field time.

This has been coming around from time to time, usually in the company of a Bell 412 and a Jetranger and a "Alphabet Army".

Phil,

Some punk has stolen your number which is of course registered to you for life.

Ride postponement

Hey guys, just wanted to update the ride for this sunday, it's postponed to next sunday. I have edited the ride thread accordingly. I have a lot of homework and other stuff to take care of, and more people will be available next week, so I'm moving it on over.
