Damn, I camped out by Bear Canyon Lake this weekend! I wish I had known there was a back route out to the 87, instead I got stuck behind a truck with a camper going <10mph then shortly after passing him got followed by two sheriff/park rangers so I was limited to 25mph on the last section of dirt where you could cruise at 50mph all day.

FYI, I'm headed out in July for a 10-day ride to Yellowstone and back. Gonna ride portions of the AZ, UT and CO BDR's on the way there and back.

Looking for inmates who would like to join me on the trip, either the full thing or part.

I will post the story up soon. Been busy healing, visiting doctors, getting a rental car etc. All in all, I don't think it could have turned out better than it did. No broken bones and I only broke skin in a few small areas thanks to my gear. I do feel like a giant dead arm or a punching bag though.

East Valley help needed...

Can anybody with a truck and/or trailer help me get 3 bikes out to San Tan Valley from Maricopa ?

I offer gas money, some cash and a free stand/chock



I realize these are bikes and the obvious answer would be ride them...two of them are drained of fuel to save me
from cleaning the carbs of ethanol sludge and I don't feel like riding the little ones an hour on pavement....plus
that would take 6 hours and 300 miles of back & forth.

What kind of bikes? I might be able to help. I have a crappy trailer and wouldn't mind helping out. I am in the East Valley.

Hey Mike,

I have a small trailer that can hold 2 bikes as long as they are not any longer that a DR. It can hold 1 longer bike by putting it on a diagonal on the trailer.


Let me know if you would like me to head your way!!!


Later
Bill

Aaron also has his trailer and if he can't then I could pick up Bill's trailer (he lives right around the corner from me). I know for a fact I can stick 3 dirtbikes in the back of my truck but since you have one street bike it would be better to borrow someone's trailer so that we can drive in style.

Don's truck sure is pimp but wont be needed for this.

Julio ,


You are welcome to pick up the trailer but let me know when so I can pull it out front.

Bill

Bill's might be better than mine. The rails are 4 inches thick, so depending on the tires the back wheel floats. Not a huge deal, but Bill's might work easier.
