Bill, when is the next one and where too?

I would check with the other crew on the other thread but they don't meet up any more, they don't ride and their thread turned in to the Food Channel thread. They are all fisherman............

Brad,

I have not really thought about the next ride. Do you have any suggestions that would be good for you and all the good guys on the west side that wouldn't be too difficult for riders like myself?

Bill

taken back........OK, fishing and riding that sounds like a good combination but I would be the one that lost my gear along the trail and would have to fish with some line and an aluminum can. I seen some out at Lake Pleasant use this technique and were very good at it.

I had to dig up those pictures from the Philipines...McD moto delivery using Honda's and the coffee joint uses Kawasaki's...
I'd probably look mighty funny riding one of those

For a little bit of a challenge I'd like to try out some new-to-me roads through Tonto.
Basically head up through Apache Trail,
hit the 288 towards Young,
make a right on NF-203 which turns into NF-202(heard that was a really nice road) up to Young.
Gas back up at Young and head home via the 288/ Across Rd. and up over Four Peaks.

If link no worky click here.


if you're uneasy with the route there are various points where you can bail. The 288 is really easy. Apache Trail as well so you could get a nice day ride in and head home if you don't want to do 300ish miles of mostly dirt. :)

I've got the start point ad QC Cafe but I'm flexible. Should be a great ride.
I am taking two weeks off this month starting on the 18th going through Dec 1st. I want to get a lot of riding in. Julio posted this ride in the spring, but we never got all the way of NF203. I want to do the ride any weekday between the 18-22 or Saturday the 23.

I am okay slabbing it to Cherry Creek, but I really want to head all the way up NF203 to the 288.

Let me know if anyone wants to go.

Here is a post from AZ girl about her latest ride there.
