I forgot my camera and my cell phone pics got deleted We wound up taking the shorter loop and it worked out perfect as it was getting late.

Definitely need to go back and see the rest soon.

Not bad

Nothing like Coke Ovens. You could do it on your Super Tenere as long as you stay on the main route up the back way. There is alot of bonus sections that would take a small bike with a talented rider to make it up but you can bypass them no worries. I can lead you up that way some time if you like or there are a few other ways that are easier if you want to dip your toe in slowly.

It sure was and I thought that looked like BigE

It was chilly for sure and we made sure we were back in town before the sun went down.

Pick a shop based on their web art

Stay with them based on their good mechanics. :)

Scene moving to Tempe I have taken my bike to Moto Center several times. Jordon and David seem like very honest and knowledgeable guys. They are also open on Mondays which is a convenient for me so I can get all weekend booboos fixed or replaced timely :)

Oh, If that was a fellow ADV inmate that I nearly ran into cutting the corner I am truly sorry. I nearly had to clean out my shorts. I guess that is why I normally don't listen to music off road.
Hey Paul, that was me and OldtimerTC, we where coming back thru CHS from the super secret 2 trac.

Was Ricardo with you guys? I thought I saw him? I signed him that there was 1 behind me and he signed me that there was 4 behind him! I kept looking for them but??

Glad you guys had a good day.

Big E & OldtimerTC, did I see you two riding through Wickenburg. I was pulling out of Tractor Supply and noticed two Orange bikes on Hwy 60?

But I was there in spirit, man!

Hope you all had a great riding day... more pictures, please!

That was me, you guys came around the corner a bit unexpectedly and I had a brain fart and signed 4 riders total

Hope the anticipation for the "Ghost Rider" wasn't too great

Probably? Was the guy in the lead a strapping (good looking) hulk of a Man? On a little bike? That looked hungry?

We popped out onto Vulture Mine Road just East of the mine and stopped at Circle K for gas and a snack. We where thinking about you, if you knew all those little roads back up in there. We need to ride out there more!!

Here is my first attempt at mounting of one the cameras to shoot to the rear. We were coming back from Joe's BBQ heading west on Elliot. I not posting for the great angle (still work to be done there) but because of the crazy lady that pushed us in to the median. I get that there are crazy drivers out there that don't look when they change lanes, but what really got me steamed was WTF do cities feel it necessary to put a big as curb in the middle of the road!
