If this doesn't have Loren's name all over it I don't know what does.
If you make about 3 or 4 racks like this we can ride out to Hell's Gate wilderness area!
That just may be the coolest thing I've ever seen! I'm running ideas through my head even as I type this.

No, thank you guys for not leaving to out there die. Twice! I think Mount Graham is my new favorite location in Az. Twistyest asphalt ever, lots of great dirt roads, hiking/mountain biking trails, pine trees, rocky canyons and a lake. What more could I ask for? Flat proof tires, maybe?

Thanks for a great time yesterday. It turned into a LOOOONG day, but very much worth the ride. I definitely wanna go out there again sometime to make a weekend of it, bit of riding, fishing, hiking and camping is on the cards for sure!!

Here's the pictures I have. I was too busy looking around to take a bunch of photo's this time, but here they are.

Stopping at Coolidge Dam


Coolidge Dam


AZtinBender's first flat of the day




And one more for luck


The customary flower shot


Hanging out at the top of Mt Graham


Check out this view!!




We went looking for lake Riggs


We found it, but it looks more like a small dam than a lake to me


One last picture of the view


Thanks guys for another great ride

Bulldog Canyon is pretty diverse so if we see that we're pushing the limit too much we can opt for the easy stuff. We're thinking kickstands up at 7am at the Quick Trip on Ellsworth and University.
May I join you? See you all @ QT (Elsworth & University) @ 7am!

Hi Guys,

I'm sorry I have to pull out of tomorrow's ride, I have a bit of a crisis going on tonight that's going to make it impossible for me to be there. :(

Absolutely. We'll be over at the staging area exactly 6 miles North of the Quick Trip though. Here are directions. I'll be stopping at the QT for gas at about 6:30.

No worries Brian. Hope things turn out ok.

We purchase Adventurer style motos with the capability of trans versing the planet under the most adverse of conditions. We seek locations where we neither speak the native language nor understand regional traditions, but make the best of it because "it's all about the Adventure"

And now I discover that 40 miles is too far to help a brother & get much needed tyres to continue the quest ----Amazing!!!

My Mount Graham Pics

If you've never been up Mount Graham you're missing out on a great ride. Ok, other than the Coolidge Dam, the ride out there isn't much to write home about but once you're there it's so worth the trip.








Taking a break on top of Mount Graham.



Beautiful views as far as the eye could see.



Rigg Lake on top of the mountain.




At 9000' it's almost 8000' cooler than it is in Phoenix. And that is something to write home about.

Bulldog Canyon Labor Day Ride.

Rode locally today with Cyberdos and some of the East Mesa crew at Bulldog Canyon.

Here are some pics from the trip.

4.5 miles of sandy wash and another 4 miles of rocky fireroads. We had a really fun day.

CrownRoyal with his KTM 690.

Finishing up at the South Exit.

Here is a link to Julio Descending one of the hills.

Man, you got at up quick! It was a great ride today. I've never been to bulldog canyon before, and I gotta say, I'm going back! There's some really fun looking stuff there, better than the rolls ohv area. Once it cools off, I'm in! That place would be awesome in the rain.

Cyberdos will add his photos shortly, I'm sure.

Thanks for the fun morning, guys! It was great meeting everyone.

Thanks to everyone for a short but very cool ride this morning. The wife thought I had broken something on my bike since I came home so early.

Here's a few pics.

Getting it started off. Crown Royal & Rickcool72.

Seabee1 making sure there are no stragglers left behind.
