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.

EZ300 and Ricardo, glad to hear you are on board!!!


Fuzzy,

WE can meet at the shell station on Cave Creek and Tom Darlington say around 11:15 give or take. I'll make sure there is a post to ADV when we leave the restaurant.


See everyone tomorrow

so, going anti clockwise, the little downhill to the dam is the same as always, the little hill climb at the bridge is smoothed out pretty well, just one step right in the middle of the climb, wont be a problem for those who will want help getting up.
the tight turns in the walkway are big enough for a bmw GS 1200 to fit, with several guys lifting ends and finessing it round

i was gonna ride elsewhere tomorrow but now i just might do sheeps bridge, may head out early and do a bit of fishing before ya'll show up though.

ride safe folks

Bulldog Canyon Locked

I took my son to Bulldog Canyon again this evening and we had a great ride. Dan was able to ride all the way to the wash and up the canyon a little ways.

We headed back to the gate, because it was starting to get dark and too my surprise; the combo lock had been flipped with a key lock.

I had no way of opening the gate. Luckily; a truck with a quad trailer pulled up and I told him we were screwed. He helped me lift my DR over the Pedestrian gap and he drove back home.

I am pretty pissed that I got locked inside the gates with a permit in my pocket.

At least my son and I got 2 hrs on the trail.

I hope everyone is alright!

That was some ride today...It started out with a big breakfast @Cindy's...


We then worked our way to the next meeting spot in Cave Creek...along the way I spotted the Costalota Ranch
Picked up at least three or four more riders maybe more it was a decent group....just before the dam...

Our first challenge passed without issue...not a drop of water running over or behind the dam for that matter...
then we get to Sheeps Bridge...now the fun begins....the intel we received on that 'little' uphill was a tad misleading...
teamtaz (aka Bob) wasted no time hurling his XRL at the hill


He made it look easy...it was NOT...we had two 990's in the group mine & EZ300...Eric charged the hill but the big KTM just started digging in...
4 of us helped him abuse the clutch and man handle the beast up...I said no way and looked for an alternate route....water was not too deep
so I proceeded to cross the river...my boots were full but I was across
so after the joy ended my big rig also found a way to dig in...but good....here is me & Paul (one of the other river crossers) takin' a break...

There are more pictures coming but thats all I got on my phone....the whole police, plane crash and copper chopper was something else to see out there...
I HAD TO GET MY FREE SHIRT DAMMIT



See ya'll at the next one

Trail intel

The intel was correct... that trail is way better than it used to be.
