Hey Bill - you sold the twins - but did you get rid of the trailer too? If you still got it (or someone else has one), care to loan it out for Desert Daze?

I've about got Marisa convinced to come out - but that means I need to get the camper plus 2 bikes out there . . . which means I need a trailer . . .

Like Crafty showed - a pretty short run - thats why it is nice to combine it with Bull Springs - but there are some interesting side roads which we did not have time to look into

I do have the trailer. Let me check and see if Ron needs it first, since he has been talking to me about Desert Daze and asked about the trailer yesterday.

I have a flat bed trailer I'm taking to DD, there will probably be enough room for another two bikes, but I'll need to get two more wheel chocks. If nothing works out let me know and we might be able to work something out.

Hey guys, I have a complete dual front non-ABS from brake set up for a 2008 GSXR600 that is almost new. It has very few miles on it as the bike was totaled just after it was purchased when a "wheelie" went wrong and the bike laid over and cracked the engine case. I also have a complete wiring harness for the same bike.







would like to get $75.00... willing to talk.

Noob ride through the Tortollitas

Had a good ride with the noobs today. We entered Rail-X and headed West as far as we could. We had a fun time in the washes and rocks (sometimes both at the same time).

Meet Mark (left) and Tim (right)...




We had fun with rocks today...





Hey, where did Mark go?






Mark is doing something strange in the desert... alone!






Hey, where's Tim?





Taking a smoke break, waiting for Mark to finally show up...




We now have a new destination in our vernacular... Slice Rock








The noobs did very well in the rock laden washes today!! I'm glad we had an angel watching over us...





Later...

- KeVin

Mt. Lemmon

Does anyone know if the back side of Mt. Lemmon is open yet?

Doesn't open until March 15th, but it isn't hard to get past the gate. You just have to worry about snow.

Here's a little stupidity for the watching. Notice all his other "safety" gear..or lack thereof...

Slice Rock

Kev! Where is Slice Rock located? I'm finally getting Jesse out of his shell to ride this weekend if we can finish getting his bike ready this week. I'd love to explore the wash you have pictured. I'm guessing its on the west end of the Tortalina's since i'm pretty familiar with the east end. If you have an approximate GPS location of the entrance to the wash i'm sure we can find it. Thanks!
