Geared up.



EsconDeasy had a shortcut across the interstate.





Ken got some barbed wire stuck in his wheel.

Pulling into Oatman.





Nightstalker rolls in.



Oatman draws in the crowds.





Donkey from Shrek was there. He wouldn't shut up.



We finished with some tasty treats.

Leaving Oatman, we headed for Chloride.



Awesome stream bed. Steve D. is a manly man for completing this ride on a KLR650!



Great scenery!

We met up with Sully in the chase truck at the highway crossing.

Coming up on the next road crossing.



The tube on Paul's bike BLEW UP! We waited patiently why they repaired the tube and caught back up.



The next section of trail was incredible!

Heading down the back side of the mountain to the Chloride Murals.



EsconDeasy and jrproper admire the murals.



Nightstalker is in deep thought. What does it all mean, Basil?



I suppose this is the answer.

Another hour of high speed dirt and we were back at the motel mixing cocktails.



The plan was to go to the bar and watch Supercross. How many taxis does it take to get 15 guys to the bar?? Three. Too bad Kingman only has two cabs!





Steaks and beers and Supercross, oh my!!



That completes day 2. Day 3 still to come!

This ride was awesome and a great alternative to Baja. I'm always amazed at how many miles of back roads are out there just waiting to be ridden in Arizona and for this trip we did just about 500 miles of those roads/trails.

EsconDeasy put in a ton of hours planning this ride and his hard work and attention to details really paid off. There were no bad wrecks, only 1 flat tire, and nobody got lost which is the real amazing part. Bump and run does work!

The best part of the whole ride? That would have to be the riders. Just a good fun ride with everybody doing their part.

Oh yeah, this is one of those rides I'm doing more than once
