Thanks for an awesome day guys! I can honestly say that the rubber tubing under my seat really helped. Mind you 450 miles in a day on a KLR is still an ass buster but just not as bad as with the extra vibration.
Here is a link to the pics i took today: http://s1176.photobucket.com/user/ra...%202013?page=1

No worries man, That would have been a very long ride for anyone not feeling well. Take care and we will see you on the next one.

Ride Sat 4/13

Hey everyone.

I am going to go out riding the Cottonwood Canyon Road heading to the Ajax Mine on Sat 4/13 This will be kind of a exploration as I have not gone in from the West before. I have been from the Superior side once.

If anyone is interested we can meet at the Queen Creek Cafe at 8:00 or at the staging area off Highway 79 at around 9:45 I do need to be home by 4:00 so I can either break off from the group or we can all call it a day.

I am not looking for anything too difficult so by my standards it should be pretty easy but I would not call this a big bike friendly ride. Anything bigger than a 650 would probably be a challenge.

If anyone who has experience with this area please chime in with recommendations or any input on difficult spots.


Thanks
Bill

I think were it starts getting a little sketchy is east of Ajax into Telegraph Canyon Rd. As long as you stay west of that area it should be a nice mellow ride.

Staging Area

Wade,

Glad you can make it. Here is a picture of the staging area, it is off 76 south of the 60 by a few miles.






Paul,


Good luck on the bikes and trailer.
