Phx Meets Tucson.....Sorta

I guess I'll start this off.

Not a bad turn out for the day, a manageable group of 9. The Tuscon contingent was awfully spars so we quickly renamed this ride to "Phoenix Meets Allyn."

Cast of Characters:
HoosierTrailMaster -AKA- Allyn
Lamotovita -AKA- Jeff
Wan -AKA- Pete
CookieMonster -AKA- Dennis
Paul -AKA- Paul
Cyberdos -AKA- Julio
TeamTaz -AKA- Bob
JerryK -AKA- Jerry
Strappyman -AKA- Bill
If I got any of those wrong please correct me.

The lone Tucson rider


The Motley Crue....



I wonder if this Guy's a trials rider?

Early in the ride I'm thinking that maybe the Bigger DS bike wasn't such a good idea. Bob would very quickly disprove this theory for us.


Somehow Allyn's radiator cap came off. Who'd have guessed that someone had an extra one in his pack? Well Dennis does, I knew there was a reason we kept him around. Maybe that's why his pack weighs 60 lbs. Quick fix and back on our way.


All together at the top.


Jerry representin.

That's it for pictures heading N to Oracle. Just before Oracle my front brake line gave up the ghost and come to find out, Bob cut his wrist pretty badly in that little slide out at the beginning.


Stay tuned for the exciting conclusion, "The Trip Home."

Nice. I used to ride the area between Florence and Superior including the coke ovens (did it on a BIG bike once, R100GSPD) but I don't recognize the area you rode. Where did you start from?
