Thx for all the info.

Will be interested in riding all day thurs and all day fri. No trail camping or anything, just want to ride and see cool stuff.

Basically, our hotel in SV is where I'll be 'reporting' back to in the evening. Girlfriend and I are coming to SV cuz she has some work training to attend. I'm just coming along to try to ride some new areas.

Thx for all the help. I'll be trying to put it all together tonight, driving back currently from coral pink sand dunes/kanab, Utah. Hopefully I have as good a time in SV as I had in Utah.

I have a ton of gps tracks for the areas surrounding Sierra Vista - it took a lot of riding to get them, but I thoroughly enjoyed every mile. I stay at the base of the Huachuca Mountains when I'm in town. There's fantastic riding all around that area. For two great day trips I'd suggest the Santa Rita's and the Chiricahua's. I've got great gps routes to loop you through those area - pm me if you're interested. Pics and info on the rides in those areas in the RR in my sig.

Ok, kokuban sent me 3 GPS files. Very generous. I think I'm going to pick two of them (1 for each day) and and go ride those as opposed to freestylin' it.

I'll put it all together tonight and tomorrow and then be able to hit the ground runnin' when I get to SV.

Thx to kokuban and acdfan for the help and pointers, I'll give a small ride report here next week to letcha know how it went.

Thx again!

Well, I'm bummed to say gf's work related trip to SV is cancelled. I went from not wanting to go to excited to go due to your help in this thread.

Oh well, I'm saving kokuban's GPS tracks and notes and will ride there when she gets rescheduled for another time.

You never know, maybe it got cancelled for a reason.

Bummer. Hopefully you'll get another chance - get in touch with me next time when you're headed there and maybe I'll be in town and we can ride one or more of those tracks together. There's so much great riding around that area it would be worth taking a trip down there for a few days just to ride around if you get the chance.

It was really nice there in October last year. Mid-winter is nice too, but you might not be able to ride the higher elevations like the Chiricahua's due to snow above 6-7k ft in Jan/Feb.

fall riding, around october, is just plain awesome down here.
I sent you a pm before I read your trip was cancelled, so disregard.
There's good camping sept/oct and you could stay in a different mountain range on a three night trip.

I'll definitely plan on coming down around October regardless of her work related stuff.

Thing is, everything was going to be paid for, except for motorcycle gas money.

See ya boys around oct. and thx again for the help.

Labor Day Weekend Ride

Alright, I never got my summer ride in...stupid life getting in the way...

So, gonna do a mostly (entirely?) pavement ride Labor Day weekend. Thinking of going up 191 to 180. Stay over at the Petrified Forest National Park. Do the park and then the crater btwn Winslow and Mormon Lake the next day. Maybe stay the night up by Mormon Lake. Then take 87 to 188 to 77 to I-10 to SV.

I have a guy from work on a Super Tenere who's riding too. Won't be able to do much dirt with him. He's new to the adventure bike thing. Might even show up wearing his old pirate outfit, he's so new.

Anyone else interested?

I got a new ride and this time it isn't your mom.

Proud new owner of a 2010 Ducati Multistrada 1200S Touring. I'm going to be picking it up in the Tri-Cities area of Washington state sometime in late August. This will be a big change from my previous bikes so I'm not completely sure of the true off-roadability of this bike but broken bones heal and scratches buff out.

Anybody out there have one of these? I'd be interested in your opinions. Can't wait to be back in the game.

See you out there.

Labor Day will be right around a shift change for me, so my days off will likely change. I'll take a look at the calendar at work when I go back from vacation Sunday.

I may be on at least riding up 191 to the first camp, then back for a fall ride.
I also have to find out what my days off will be for sept/oct/nov/dec before i can plan.
my august ride is already out the door with a schedule change for august.
I've not ridden or seen a multistrada but it looks like it would do well on dirt road touring. I've had good experience with the tourance tires so far, but i think i will be getting a more aggressive tread. I sure would like to see the multistrada when you get it. riding it back I assume?
