Thumb Airborne!

Great ride report Bub and great roads for the big katoom. Looks like the weather was cooperative as well. I don't remember the desert being so inviting but your photos are enticing. Thanks

Great ride report! Thanks for all the maps, great photos, and memories of past rides. You've gotta love S Arizona!

By the way, you have excellent taste in bikes!

Hey, Thanks for the great RR. The photos are really good and the maps are a nice addition for someone to use on a future trip.

dude!

Due to my "hiatus" I didn't realize you had a RR going with the new machine, good stuff! I've ridden many of those roads on a Ninja 500 while I was "stationed" in Tucson Last year, including Kitt Peak, Ajo, Reddington, and Ruby Road after dark!

I gotta get myself back out there with the KTM, you and I would have a lot of fun! Nothing like AZ in the winter...

Great RR and pictures, I like the one-handed stuff a lot!



P.S. How do you like the Garmin 60? I just got one (my first GPS) with the ram mount after HOURS of research here on ADV, thinking of hooking it up similar to yours, but so far I'm not sold on the whole GPS thing, I think I need a lesson on how to use it to it's potential...

Tortilla Flats, the dirt part (the only AZ pic I could come up with quick!):

Wow! I've really got to work my way down south, that's a foreign landscape to me! Thanks for the photos and maps, keep the ride reports coming!

Funny you should mention that. I am returning to Southern Utah this weekend. Anyone up for some red rock photos again? Keep your eyes peeled for a new report soon... (Tentative Title , Identity Crisis II, SE Utah and the White Rim Trail )

Those reports are highly dramatized and the violence is specifically targeted at folks involved in illegal activities. While there are no doubt border issues, the average person isn't getting hassled. So long as you stick to the main roads, camp in designated areas and don't strike out across the desert cross country, you'll not likely have any run-ins and won't likely see anyone except Border Patrol.

It's gotta be safer than riding around in Phoenix...
