I don't even get off the 450, just go as wide as you can & ease it around

You'd be welcome to follow Brad & I.

Dibs on the ramp!
What time will you guys be leaving? I am a slow rider, so I don't want to hold you back, but my friend might be bailling on me.

Thanks for the invite.

Let me talk to Brad, but I'm thinking 5AM start. The plan was to let Brad lead on his DR650 so he could keep out of the dust (medical reasons).
I don't mind a little slow, but I wanna get out of there before we bake

Also have an aluminum 6 ft long, 6 inch wide dirtbike ramp.

Gotta get the garage clutter under control. Both free to a good home.

Damn I wanted that ramp

I have no problem gettin my 650 around that corner either - can stay on the bike. By the way you guys are crazy - its gonna be HOT

5am it is, leaving from the Wildcat staging area. If you're that worried about being slow, you could leave at 4:30 & we'll catch you or meet you at the bridge?

Ok I stand corrected on the Horseshoe Dam Walkway crossing

Look like you can get a dirtbike across the Horseshoe dam walkway. Great ride pictures from 2010 done in March - you guys are going to melt out there!!!!

Come join us, it will be 85 at 5:00 AM and we will be done by 8-8:30

Otherwise, everyone on the other sites will start telling everyone else.

Plus, when we get to the river we can get in and soak the clothes. It's great for a little while then you are completely dry by the time we get to the spillway crossing.

It's been a loooong time since your scooter was a mere 450cc's!

You guys mind if I tag along? I've been itching to go riding for a while and this sounds like a fun ride. I'd say I'm an advanced beginner. Recently moved back to AZ after spending a few years in NC. I ride a WR250R.
