What happened to you at Porkfest.... A quick disappearing act. I know those easy trails couldn't have scared you off

Easy trails? Are you kidding me? I know there was an area about 200' long that was almost flat, and I had to give it a little gas to keep from falling over. But hey, I was the only one on a small bike so that may be what happened.

Sorry I missed you at Pork Fest Paul, I was looking forward to chatting with you.

We had a couple of serious get-off's and one rider had to visit the ER. but everyone surived! Bikes? I am not sure if they made it or not, 2 of them had to be hauled out.

Anyway, ride your own ride!

Hope to see you soon.

Be Blessed Brother, Eric.

Hello everyone!

Hey, Hi there.
I've been around ADV for a while now, and just found this most excellent thread... I live in Gilbert and ride a variety of bikes, and I have a new to me KLR650 that's begging to be taken out and shown around the state as soon as I finish with the current farkling. I'm also planning to ride the LA-Barstow-Vegas dual sport ride in November. Any of you riding that ride?

I'm a pretty busy guy, (self-employed) but I'll try to make one of your coffee meetings one of these times to introduce myself and say hello.

The name's Garry... see you around. Looking forward to meeting you all.

If you want to go on my old man slow, boring rides cool. If not cool too.
750Volts, I was just having a little fun, nothing serious. I enjoy them slow rides as well and possibly will join you someday.

Guys, sorry for the temporary highjack, but I hoped to catch some East Valley riders that may not frequent the SWDSR thread as much...

My rent house in NE Mesa has suddenly become vacant as my tenant lost his job and decided to move out this morning.

3BR, 2 Bath townhome with small back yard, 2 parking spots, close to shopping and freeways. Kid friendly neighborhood with full court basketball and playground.

Recker Rd. and Brown in Brookfield West edition.

If anyone is looking for a place or knows anyone who is, I'd really appreciate a referral.

It is managed through Bennett Property Mgmt, as I am living in Oklahoma, but please feel free to PM me directly.

I'm no real-estate mogul or anything... the rent doesn't even cover the cost of ownership for my wife and I, especially since the property has devalued greatly since we moved in 2008. The quicker we can get a tenant the better.

Many thanks

Hey JD. The weather is just getting nice. Maybe you should come out and occupy your house until you can rent it. It's very bad for a house to sit empty and you could then personally interview prospective tenants.

Of course a little riding would be necessary.

Street adventures?

Is there anyone in the east valley who rides street as well? I ride dirt, but I also ride street. I like a good full day in the saddle and not too many stops. I ride a BMW F800ST, I am not fast, and ride around 20,000 miles per year.

Thanks,
Jo

Hi Jo,

Yes, I ride on the street. More than the dirt, truth be told. I have a few different bikes, and if you're ever looking for someone to go for a ride with, let me know. I'm usually ready to ride somewhere. I'm an old guy, so I don't ride super fast either.

I'm also one of those Iron Butt guys... Last weekend I did a tribute ride to legendary Iron Butt veteran Jack Shoalmire who recently passed away. My ride was 1111 miles, in 17 hours 40 min. All within AZ. The tribute ride was organized by the IBA and had at least one rider in every single state doing a 1000 mile ride that day. I was honored to participate in Jack's tribute.

Garry

Thanks, Garry, I will take you up on that. Do you have time during the week sometimes? I work full time, but have a lot of days off.

I heard about the Jack Shoalmire ride. I did not ride, but know people in our club who did. That's great that you did it. I am not into the Iron Butt thing myself, but I think it's cool.

Thanks for responding.

- Jo
