I hope no one got to use their newly gained skills on the ride today.

I'm all for having another tire changing class in a few months, right about the time my front tire is due. It's a lot more fun with a shop full of people than it is sweating alone in the garage, cussing at myself.
It was also great meeting some other riders (and mountain bikers).
Thanks Don & Drew, for the knowledge and the place to share it. And of course the smoked salmon.

Good ride today. Unfortunately after I split off I lost my tool roll off the back of my bike. Didn't realize until I got home .

Did any of you on the ride find a big tool roll on your way out?

That is too bad. I didn't see a tool roll, maybe it had already been picked up...

I did see and icechest in a milk crate. I was so tired I just kept on riding. I had a ton of fun riding. Too bad you guys missed my swan dive into the mud puddle. I am sure it would have scored really high.

If you're posting about it this soon after, I'm assuming that you're ok. I'd love to see some footage of it, though!

Here is a picture of the meadow up at the top of Mazatzal Divide. There were two pretty cool water collection tanks.



Who knew that riding a KTM 530 would be the small bike in the group?

Eric rode that 990 like a 450. I was amazed Brian wrestled that 1200 down those trails and the tortoise is getting faster! Great ride, thanks for organizing it!

glad you guys had a fun and safe ride!-gotta join ya for the next one

I was telling my buddy today about the tire class..specifically about the troubles of working with super stiff tires and he brought up (what sounded like)a great little trick for riders in our climate..
"let the tire bake out in the arizona sun for a few hours and the heat will help soften it up to get on the rim"
(BIG thanks to everyone by the way at the class-had a great time, learned alot, met a bunch of awesome people!)

Thanks guys for an awesome ride this morning

Sorry I didn't take many pictures, I was too busy enjoying the ride and the scenery.

Leaving the house at "stupid o clock" this morning was rough but well worth it, cause we were up the mountain before any crazy SxS's showed up. We did have to contend with a few of them on the way down the hill though, and somehow I manage to muster a friendly wave or two whilst scowling my disdain out of sight behind my tinted lenses.

But enough waffling, here's my pics:













Sorry EZ300, I didn't see your tool bag either.
Thanks again for the ride today guys, it was a lot of fun and I had a great time "wraslin" my big white beast around.

Camping location Ideas

Looking for a good place to camp next weekend for my roommates birthday.

Need a location that supports:
-road access for a jeep hauling a single axle trailer with quads (I know..4 wheels..loooosers!!) and dirt bikes.We have people joining us that dont ride so we need car side camping-not unloading/staging area.
-preferably dirt, not sand
- max. 4 hours drive time one way
-access to awesome trails!!!
-prefer BLM/national forest land or other "firearm friendly" areas..but not necessary


Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

Thanks,
Max

there are some neat camp sites along seven springs road just south of bloody basin road.
my favorite camping is south of I40 and west of I17. above Sedona, basically. just great fire roads and beautiful scenery. all accessable by 2 wheel drive, depending on which way you go in, and what time of year. give me a call if you'd like to talk particulars.

Court Date

DirtBiker78, what ever happened with your court date? What are they going to make you do/pay for playing chicken with the sheriff?
