I should be there Phil but don't wait past the 9:30 depart time if I don't make it. It depends on whether my wife needs the truck or not.

Dusty Mocos and I rode this route a while back. Here is a link by Dusty Mocos that inculdes a map and other photos. The Bullsprings route is a nice intermediate run along the southeast side of the Santa Ritas. I would like to do it again.

Hey Phil! Thanks for the call and thinking of me to go riding but I am offically in Texas now. I did get some riding in last weekend with some good folks from twtex.com. They showed me a nice area about an hour from the house. It was fun, but I am pretty sure I am going to miss riding in AZ. You can't just go ride for miles and miles out here. Everything is private property.

Great ride yesterday. Thanks for putting it together Phil. My only questions are - Why is there so much sand down here and why are there so many red bikes?

Dave

Yes that was a fun ride. 9 riders and quite a mix of Motos including an elsinore. Marty from Norcal on the Husky liked our riding options, Dave is now to be known as the Sandman, and Allyns latest Moto of the month is awesome 650R Honda sit and twist.A great day to ride. Ride On! Phil

NO action shots this weekend. Nothing very technical but I was impressed how everyone moved along. At the very end there was a little gas line race Big Daddy Baja 650 vs. New Little Brother CRF 450X we were doing 72 mph over somes whoops and dips.

Had a really nice time and thanks for those who waited for me to run into Catalina and fill-er-up.

Big Daddy Baja 650R...I REALLY like this new rig.



Phil's CRF 450X...immaculate as always.



Here is the true HOOSIERTRAILMASTER", 40 years of riding vs. 4 and yes you can tell the difference.



"I only ride when my outfit matches my bike"



Girl Scout cookies...where is the milk? I put my foot down when he pulled out the sign-up list and asked me how many boxes was I committing to.



The "New" Honda Elsinore



Power line gathering



Phil and his patented "Thumbs Up".



Cliff looking for his Bar (Cliff Bar) and Steamboat Dave saying a prayer before he goes into the sandy abyss.



Marty giving us his version of the "Thumbs Up"...hey Marty, nobody can see it.



Now Marty is getting rid of his toxic snot. Where is the EPA when you need them?



Skip...wishing his wife was with him.



Had a really great time with you guys. As always, glad no one got hurt and everyone had fun.

Hey Allyn, nice job on the photos, you should get a go-pro camera and become the NS of southern AZ. Just saying, Ride On! Phil

Off topic..

Does manhood mountain count if you conquer it with 4 wheels?



I got my new rig, and tested it out today. We did manhood mountain, gunsight pass, creek trail, Sonoita, and some trail near sawmill trail (go up gardner canyon road, turn right and dip into creek, then out of creek, then follow trail to T intersection, go straight through that (sign says towords sawmill), then at another Y go left. This trail is one of the nastiest I've seen in Sonoita, it has multiple nasty rocky hill climbs, into and out of valleys, and ends up dead ending into a hiking trail).

A great day in the outdoors, even if in a cage For those interested in such things, rest of pics here:

Hey all! I saw the big group of you Catalina/Rail X riders out on Saturday. You might remember seeing a trio of Drz's down in the wash along the power lines....near where Phil had a small dirt nap, yeah my brother saw that. LOL. Anyways good to see everyone out and sorry I couldn't chat too long with you Phil. I was on a rescue mission bringing jumper cables to a dead dizzer.

Anyways, reason for my post is I put together a nice ride video of my ride with my brother and his new girl friend. It was her first time out on a dirt bike and did really well. Two of the Drz's I had just recently assembled and they did really well too. Ok, less talk more video!

Still broken.

My legal representation suggests I don't say anything about anything (at least where it's recorded) but if you want to come say hi I think I'll come to bike night Thursday.

Ara is in town and says he'll be there too (http://theoasisofmysoul.com/)
