You throw in a little bonus loop on a ride & they don't appreciate it. I just don't get it

I was too lazy to swap my street tires on my DR, so I decided to ride my DRZ 110 at bulldog canyon with a friend. We ended up riding 31 miles. I will never complain about the suspension on my 650 again.

A different take

Could this be no more than a practice run for the now defunked -----but re-purposed------perhaps,

"Lk. Pleasent to Crown King under 80 Abuse,Carnage & Death Wish" competition ?

I seem to remember that some "Sick minds" had developed such an event, but alas, never came to pass.

Just askin

I think everybody discovered that it costs nearly as much to buy and prep a monkey bike as it does to buy a full sized ride.

Still sounds like fun.

I know, life just keeps getting in the way. I've been here a week and a half and still havent gotten a ride in. I'll be sure and thrash the old gal Saturday though!

Saturday

Yo Steve,

It will be really good to meet you and I still owe you a cold beverage or three for your help on the wiring harness.

Is there a set time to meet at the staging area and how about for those riding up?

Not up in Payson. The beauty of where we live is elevation changes drastically cool down the temps in the summer.

For now we're thinking of staging out of the Walmart. Maybe shoot for a kick stands up at 9am? Why don't we load up your bike on on the trailer and we can all hang in the truck through the hot stuff? I think Mike is interested too so that would make it the 4 of us.

Hello az650l. Not sure if we've met yet but that's very kind of you.
With all the rains, I'm thinking we'll just skip that part. Steve's got to be back for a plane he's gotta catch so I don't want to chance anything. Do you plan on meeting up with us as well for the ride?
