Warmer Sunday too. Last weekend was great weather for riding, but Bloody Basin is a bit chopped up due to rain. I would have preferred mud then as I was on the Ural


Here are a couple minutes of Video from my ride Saturday starting with a right that brought the car up a bit giving G a bump, then hitting the ice patch at 7 Springs Wash (@1:50)

Great video with the pooch and matching riding outfits! Why doesn't the dog have a helmet? ATGATT

so, that is why the Honda is up for sale.
Wow! So sorry to hear. :(

Great stuff. I love how comfortable Gulliver is.

If he would have had a helmet he would not have gotten smacked in the face with that stick.



Bad Dave.

Good to see you out on the road today Julio!

What was that flashing light you had on the back? That was awesome!

Those were ripped off of an FDNY ambulance.

But everyone else can find them at Whelen.

Why We Ride - UltraStar Scottsdale Pavilions Jan 4th

Looks like Team AZ has got another showing of Why We Ride showing at UltraStar Scottsdale Pavilions.



Bit more east side for those afraid to cross Scottsdale road Too bad it is probably not on the UltraStar D-Box motion seats.

I already own a copy of the movie but have yet to watch it. Seeing it on the big screen first would be nice.

It's a great movie. I took the whole family and even my skeptical, uninterested wife had to admit she liked it.

Have fun on the ride guys.

I ended up going with a passenger on my DRZ. At first, I thought I would be really limited on the trails and look like a goof with two people on a 400. But we rode for a couple hours only turning around once because a hill was too steep.

Believe it or not, we ran into another couple doubled up. Except they were on a TTR125! And were shredding harder than I could.

I definitely want to do it again and do a much more exploring. Would you, and anyone else, be interested in going this weekend or anytime before Christmas?

I saw that same couple...No helmets either. They looked like kooks on that small bike.

That guy has a pretty trusting Girlfriend.

add me to this horrible list. It was on the crossing that has the 4 ft drop on the down stream side, big boulders and rock. Spun like a bottle, thankfully i went straight, spinning...I didn't know what hit me. Mid summer. Rough
