I saw a few unmarked roads as well, but given that we took the most well traveled road and it was still 120 miles from the pavement to get in and back out, I don't think I would want to putt along on 15-20 mph roads all day. I'm pretty sure I would just find myself in one of the most remote places on the north rim and out of gas before I ever made it back to civilization.

hey Loren check this out:
If you click on where it says "download all 1439 Arizona mines" it will save a gpx file with waypoints of the mines.
Cyberdos,
Thanks for the link.
Now I know what I'll be doing for the next 1439 weekends!

True story much pavement, but we did do quite a few detours. I am a bit disturbed about Brian's interest in my back side. I guess he never saw a white guy with that much junk in his trunk. It's okay the chicks from Africa seem to like it too. Could have just been blinded by the light.

Give the guy some slack, he lives in Queen Creek, thats probably the first DR hes ever seen.

Those are some awesome Toroweap pictures. I like the feeling buzzed picture Brian.

Yep, we made it from the cabin to Phoenix in 5 hours. The bat bikes blasted it beautifully. Hope your ankle gets better. Looks like the ManUp is working just fine. Great call, Brian. :)

I see how it is.

the first roosting has CrownRoyal's name on it. Followed by Reidy (if I can ever get in front of him).

I see Brian got a Giant Loop saddlebag. Which one is it? I have the Coyote version and love it. Did it fit all your stuff and how did it hold up?
