Mike, About Vekol Valley, I haven't been down that exact road but we have ridden out on the gas pipeline road not far from there and the back side of the Sonoran Nat'l Monument going between the 238 and the 85 just north of there. The last I was out there everything was closed due to a law suit by environmentalists. It would be cool if they opened all of that area up. Cool that is this fall when you don't have a chance of the buzzards picking your bones after you die from heat exhaustion. I wouldn't be out there after dark under any circumstances. Like the last guy said heavy traffic for guys with guns.

Mike,

Do you have a ride in mind??? I wasn't planning on riding this weekend but if you don't get any takers I might change my mind.

Any of you V-Strom guys want to trade windshields? I've got a Moose Adventure windshield that isn't working out for me on the freeway, it's taller than stock and looks like this (I think this is it?):

Assuming stock is smaller I'd be down to trade for stock. My head is just rocking and rolling unless I'm in full aero mode and that's just not working for me.

Hey Mike, Just wait until the monsoons come. That fine silt turns into a wonderful riding surface with just a little water. Then more water comes down and it sucks as bad as the clay in the SE. If you are not on a super light bike with good tires it sucks donkey balls for sure.

Hey Bob congrats on the WR450. I don't mean to be an ass but I just can't visualize you on a small bike. You ride that Supere Tenere like I ride an XR250. I imagine that you will get a bit bored with the sub 100mph speeds off road though.

Welcome,

What kind of motorcycle do you ride and what type of rides are you looking?

I also have a YZ450f that I just bought a "desert tank" for. I think I am done with track riding.
