After my ride last summer I've contemplated it. My in-laws have a place in Fountain Hills that we've been to a few times. I've loved the area and my wife would leave tomorrow if we could. I'm just not too sure about the job market out there.

I love the sun, dirt bikes, motorcycles, bicycles, shooting, peace and quiet... It's a great place.

Paul,

You know me, I'm in. This might be a little easier if we make it a overnighter but can tough it out if everyone would rather do it in a day. No matter what we need to do it before the weather gets hot.


Julio,

The food was great even it the place is little small but I would eat there again. I prefer most mom and pop places to any chain when possible and usually find much better grub.

No, but you can sure see your managerial skills handle that tire change.

No, but I did think I was watching Benny Hill wearing orange pants!

When I lived in Germany I watched Benny Hill every Sunday evening with my in-laws. I always thought this skit was just brilliant!

Any recommendations for places to buy Sidi boots near Scottsdale/Fountain Hills? I would need to contact them to make sure they carry large sizes.

I'm not sure which to go for, but I'm mulling over these three:
Adventure
On-Road
Crossfire (TA?)

I mostly ride a sport bike, and only go off-roading rarely. I'm not sure if those boots (I've never owned any) will be less comfortable due to the foot / leg angle on in a sport position.

Well, yea! They are gonna be less comfy, but you are gonna get a whole lot-O-protection and after you get used to them they are ok. Make sure you try the Sidi Crossfire TA's best boot going IMOH, and they have a hinged ankle. I have bought boots in Scottsdale at GO!!! Az. and they are ok to work with.
