Thanks for the info Belstaf and Cyber.
I like the tougher trails also, thinking even big screen would need readers. Good point, powered by bike, hadnt thought that far.
When I said agitated, I was talking to get back out on trails
Been jetskiing during hot summer, good way to keep cool, get air, and go fast...Thanks again!

If you've camped with the army, this motorcycle camping should be a luxury!

Maybe I should show up and pop some cs grenades!

Tuesday at 6 sounds good. Hope I remember.
Last I know there are no Motels at Toroweep.
St George or Fredonia. 80 dirt miles from Toro

I was going to ask you guys about the legality of riding along canals since it's more interesting than taking surface streets, but I just read that I'm not allowed to. But I mean, there aren't any gates so how much trouble could I really get in?

There may not be gates on all of them, but check for signs. They usually allow joggers and dog walkers but no motorized traffic.

I definitely saw some people on the other side at one point, roosting them at 40 might have given them a slight shock.

https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=207906155336382848190.0004e2097305bf1bd3184
(The entire route there is about 14 hours under ideal conditions)

I rented a cabin that holds 6 people at Jacob's lake. I did this because it looks like most of the cabins anywhere up there are filling up and I can cancel up to 48hours in advance.
I am guessing that if there is a heavy amount of mud that we will devise and alternative plan. I am guessing that Friday night we will stay in either Winslow or Flag.
Alternatively, those that live further north could join up with us on Saturday morning. This might make it easier too for those that can't get Friday off, they could run up on the highway Friday evening and meet up as well.

I think flexibility will help make it fun for more people. See all of you that would like to meet and plan the trip or just have a cup of coffee with us.
Tuesday 7/23 at 6pm @ Coffee Rush SE corner of Gilbert and Baseline.

I had to copy and paste it into my address Bar, no google map address bar.

That is a very big bike doable route. Still not sure about your time est. It will be a long day, but probable can be done.
That is one day to Jacob lake then another to Toroweep and back in day 2???
