I'm in Mesa. By Dobson & Guadalupe.

Right now I have a 09 GSA and a 06 DRZ. Might be selling the DRZ soon. I haven't completely made up my mind on that yet.

I've been over by the schools on Summit since '95. I have an R11GS but I've got a leg issue that prevents me from doing much past fire roads as far as dirtly. Most of my "adventuring" these days is with my 4x4.

Nothing wrong with fire roads. I'm new to dual sporting so fire roads are just fine with me. I got the GSA after I came back from Afghanistan to ride up to Alaska. I'm going to try that trip in the summer of 2015.

I'd be up for something the 28th-1st...somehow I got saddled with work 12/26+27




Probably big bike stuff....maybe an Apache trail-Roosevelt dam-four peaks loop...






I did take the little ones out today for some exercise

I think we have a micro-gang here! Dobson/Warner.

We'll have to call for an evening meetup after the holidays to discuss some ride options.

Happy Holidays!

Hey guys .... looking for a little route help. I live in Maine, but have spent a lot of time in southeastern AZ the last couple of winters - have a couple bikes stored in Sierra Vista. I've gotten to know the southeastern part of the state pretty well, but I'm headed to Death Valley in Jan and I'm wondering if there's a mostly dirt route around Phoenix from Superior to Wickenburg. Experienced rider on a well-equipped DR650, but riding solo and not really looking for gnarly single-track.
TIA - any help is greatly appreciated.

Dean

Really? Watched it on Saturday and I didn't think too much of it. Half way through it my mom was asleep and my son was reaching for the tablet to play Minecraft.

I was dozing off too. My thoughts were: "you're preaching to the choir"

I liked Faster better.
