If it hadn't already gone the way of the dodo, I'll take ya up on that. Have a friend with a VFR, and another friend trying to but one.

PM en route.

Saturday morning ride?

Hey Tucson! I'm looking at a short jaunt in the morning tomorrow, couple hours maybe. Got my kl600 on the road again and I'd Love to see some freshly watered mountains. Anyone available or interested? I'm thinking of heading out around 8, either to explore some reddington OHV trails, or just cruise up the lemmon and pick some berries. Open to ideas, too.

Cheers!

Its pretty casual - just show up & ride, then hang out and BS afterwards.
Fantasy Island should be called Nightmare Desert. That crap almost killed me. An ex-future son-in-law took me for a "fun ride". Note: He is an EX future son-in-law...

I heard Fantasy Island is a breeze compared to Sweetwater.

It would be more fun if we could watch young girls riding on handle bars again.
I see all these macho men riding fantasy and sweet water Hwy 83 trails,
but none with sexy girls on the handlebars.
I will wait for the pictures.
Girls used to love to ride on my paper bike with my bags rolled up,
I had a bike with a padded handlebar seat, and an income.
I could ride them down to the malt shop and afford to buy them a sherbert ice cream,
after they got their tonsils took out.

Guess I will have to start looking for an old
Schwinn Chrome Paper Bike,
with front spoke shields,
wrap some canvas around the bars,
and take the wife,
for a spin around the block.
If you see one local let me know.

Just dreaming
the days of cars slowing down,
to whistle or honk,
at the sexy girls on handlebars,
are over.

I live next to a bicycle friendly town,
and have never seen a paper boy on a bicycle.

No your are just inhaling the bug spray in Tucson,
they are afraid of mosquito bites.
Drink lots of water and flush it from your system.
We get stung by bees every day,
but they don't spray for those.
If you want swelling on your face or body
that, as seen on TV cannot remove,
just ride out where they don't spray for mosquito.
Mosquito in Tucson is like the native American of the past,
They declared its dangerous and needs to be eradicated!
But offer no bounty for those swatted from your body yet.

And from the color of your face in your avatar,
I would stop starting your motorcycle and running it in your air conditioned garage with the doors closed,
for comfort in AZ.

So did you guys get to read how my zip code,
Vail AZ
is going to vote to be a city?
I am lucky they don't want spend a 100 million or more
just to pave my little dirt road, and install fire hydrates.

They claim it will increase safety, and lower crime in Vail,
that Pima County has not provided.

I would like to hear your input of what
you have seen as crime in Vail AZ?

Sport Bikes on 83?
Bicycle gangs on 83?
Harley Riders at Montgomery's?

And don't be thinking this tangent of mashed up thoughts is a one off for old Gmoney.
