Not a bad idea!
I was moving things around and found an itty bitty washer in the garage - the likes of which I have only seen two of around here. Both belong under the needle.... I'm still going to check out the larger jets, uni filter, and shorter spring.

The all time great was the Garmin 276C (nothing but Garmin) - no longer made but selling used for $800.

They just did tracks really well - and no silly touch screen - real buttons.

But the thing is a brick.

Rode Charlou Gap Yesterday - such great weather - the road was pretty eroded even before the stream (still running).

Kicked my 60 year old ass on my old 610 Husky but I survived.

This is a sweet shot of the SE Arete of Babo.

Heading south today!
Always ready for a ride to the Buenos Aires. Love the shot of Baboqhivari Peak.

Let me know.

Thanks for the hospitality

Curiousteve here from Missouri. I recently had a great visit to your beautiful state...I hauled my WR250 out to Tucson for a few weeks to escape our wicked winter. While in Arizona I connected with DingWeeds, Emerson Biguns, Rhodester and others who showed me around while I shot lots of video. Below is a link to my one-day solo ride down to Nogales, Locheil, Montezuma Pass and back to Tucson. I'm already working on my next one, which is a group ride with some of you Tucson guys... what a great bunch! Thanks for the hospitality and I hope I will have an opportunity to show you an equally beautiful state: Missouri.

I had a ton-o-fun with this and it renews my commitment to keep it going. What is the consensus about dates: November or February?



Unfortunately, the bottle of sourdough I gave roaddirt went off in his pack and he spent hours scrubbing it out of his clothes. Maybe the pavement next time.

They don't call it "adventure riding" for nothin'.

Thinking of a Death in the Desert ride on Sunday. Pretty straight forward...not too tough ride from the Shell Station on Ajo (just West of Kinney Road) out to just before Three Points through the desert to Arivaca...get some grub at the Gadsden Coffee House and then back. Some sand...very little in climbs. Have done it with someone on a 1200GS although we might do the wash next to the reservation which would be tough on a GS.

Who's in?

.. does the red Garter still happen?[/QUOTE]


Been wondering the same thing. GF and I are snowbirds here and ride DR350's. I would like to connect with some folks to ride with and for advice on where to (and not to) ride.
