[QUOTE=PhiSig1071;21275164 How difficult is Reddington? I just started riding offroad, and my skills, frankly, suck. [/QUOTE]

If I can do Reddington easily, anyone can do it. Seriously.

It's not that they couldn't figure it out. They wouldn't do it for liability reasons. The GM didn't explicitly tell me that, but I know its the case.

Hi everyone,

Ive recently moved to the tucson area, so i'm still getting used to how things operate around here. anyways i was out breaking in the new bike and came across this sign.




i assume this is normal? i saw a BP truck further down the road, so i assume its pretty safe.

Ruby Road just south of the country line?

It's safe, for now.

Pretty normal. I am down there often, I never "feel" unsafe. Just assume you always have eyes on you.

Smuggling traffic is heavier after the sun goes down, just be careful if you camp overnight. Large groups are a plus.

Yes very normal.

But we are told by Janet that everything is fine.

Have seen so much illegal stuff down on the border that I never go alone or unarmed.

Too bad - there is so much great riding down there -we used to have our own country.

thx, just wanted to make sure, there were a lot of side roads off of Ruby road. i just didnt have my pistol with me. i never was too worried. it was mid day, i was the only idiot out in the heat.

In AK you cannot transport any firearm on a 2 wheeled vehicle. i was told in AZ it is fine to do so.

you can do anything you want in AZ. Carry your infant down the road stacked on top of your meth lab supplies on the back of your ATV, no problem.
