Chiva Falls, AZ the Hard Way

A very rare sight indeed. Emerson.Biguns showed with Vicky's steed to do the "Lower Chiva" loop. Whooo Hooo...what? Your bike doesn't start Emerson? It won't run? You're leaving? Is it ok if we call you "Little Thomas" from now on?



Richard aka YBRacing and Emerson discuss the complexities of a Swedish bike that is now Italian...very temperamental..just like Italian girls. Becky says "blonds have more fun" Emerson.



While my new bike isn't Italian...it shares a similarity with me...Testerossa (that's Italian too)



We decided to do the loop backwards (second attempt).



Wish I had either of my riding partner's form.



Richard navigates the rocks after making it through a 3 foot creek crossing (ya we were worried).







Another rare shot, Phil had a little bobble/get-off, the interesting thing to me was watching him groom the area after the event to clear it of small pebbles and the like.



Me acting like I know what I am doing.





Richard looking like an angry hornet.



Phil, doing his best photography...something sitting still.



Damn Phil...ya got YB why couldn't you get me?



Oh...you did.







Look...up in the sky...it's a bird, no it's a plane....no it's





Two old fart goof balls.



Man, did I enjoy today. Conditions were perfect, like the new bike and had two really good guys to ride with.

2005, came from Page, AZ for 26 marbles, a pen knife and a box of Cracker Jacks. Didn't run when I got it. Oh no, another 250 X with valve problems? Nope, gosh they don't run well (or at all) when the air/fuel screw is only an 1/8 out and the leak jet is clogged. Bike is in real nice shape, however, Dillon won't like it cause the pipe is as loud as the one I used to have on my 450. Don't worry, looking for a quiet pipe. Suspension is real nice. Mikey likes it!

No, I am going to Flagstaff to ride. A buddy will be there on my 640 ADV though, so I will be there in kind.

I used to mountain bike Chivo Falls back in the 80s and 90s. Went through there a few times on ATVs and 4x4s, too.. Seemed like the trails got gnarlier every time.
How was the water flowing?
