Will you wear your spandex and bike helmet on the moto ride up, or will you stow that in your hard box on the back?

Haha I'll definitely bring my cycling gear in the hard case. I might just have to get a photo of me in lycra and a bicycle helmet on my motorcycle though.

You should totally clip into your pegs too. I like that bike rack. You could get to some pretty cool places to ride.

Ya, Steezeman and I just did a quick loop. We took the apache trail to Roosevelt and the four peaks road back. It was my first ride with my new to me, ktm 950! I also have smaller bikes if anyone wants to do more technical trails during the weekdays (mon-thurs) let me know.

Funny how that works...
I complain about how much the rain has washed away the trails I ride...
My wife says, then why do you keep going back there! You have been out that way three times in the last week... "BUSTED"

Backwards Sheeps' Bridge Loop Saturday

Everyone,

We have firmed up a plan for Saturday so here is it for anyone wanting to join us.

Meet at Cindy's Café (124 E McKellips Rd Mesa, AZ 85201) Sat at 9:00 if you want Breakfast or 10:00 for just the ride.

Loren will be riding 2up with Kathy and me on the DR. I think Paul is planning on going as well.

We can take the back way thru Rio Verde on the way up and stop for gas in Cave Creek for gas before heading out.

Anyone wanting to join us is welcomed.


Bill

Dillon has a tire for you, and I know you know how to change it!

I should mention that there are 2 somewhat difficult sections on this ride.

The little downhill at the Dam and the uphill right at the bridge and we can walk the bikes if needed.

A word about the dam, you have to make a right angle turn right at the dam in a very tight area. I don't know how big a bike you can get thru it but I thought it was tight on my DR. It's very easy to damage blinkers or worse.




Thanks
Bill

Paul,

I bet you can get another 2K out of that tire
