Skowinski-wife and I are thinking of coming down, arriving Friday evening and departing Monday morning. We both should have the time off, and love that part of Arizona. She is still fairly new to riding (3 years in now) and I'll be "supervising" her, so we will be looking at easy stuff, dirt roads, jeep roads, no really rough stuff with steep climbs, etc.

Here's a LINK to download a PDF poster for the event.

Please feel free to print a few out and post them around to spread the word. Also feel free to crosspost info on other riding forums you might be on.

What's up fellows.


Looks like I might be joining you guys.

Curious if anyone is making the drive from the Ohio area? I'm having to get my bike shipped, so thought I'd throw it out there in case anyone is making a drive.

RV plate

If I trailered the son's bike (with rv plate) to stage points, would there be plenty of riding? Or does the title of this event answer my question? Looks like a cool event for father and son.

There's quite a bit of riding which would require minimum road travel from Dragoon. If anyone with a lighter bike is looking for a fun place to ride try to google "St. David pits" and include something like atv/dirt bike in the search. It's an easy 30 min ride from Dragoon to the west and lots of cool places to explore.

We're coming out from NH for this and I tried to copy the gpx tracks to my mapsource............well Ok I don't know what I'm doing. I read the instructions on the desert daze website and could'nt make sense of it. I've got a csx60 and wondering if anyone has made tracks capable of emailing them to me in mapsource. If I'm not making sense please let me know. singed, lost in AZ but still in NH. P.S. my email dugiemott@metrocast.net

Wow, wrongturn, you are coming a long ways for the riding. One things for sure, it won't be like what you ride in New Hampshire...

I try to get out there every winter for a little bit. I love AZ, if my whole family did'nt live here I'd be there.

Dont need gps in death valley-just stay on the road and keep riding and enjoy the sunshine.Unless you goto Amargosa dunes you are supposed to ride on established roads only.

Hey wrongturn,

Glad to see you're coming and also glad the gps tracks worked out!

BTW, if you're driving in, D K is trying to get a bike trailered in from Ohio. Might be worth some gas money to PM him....

I can attest to this, last desert daze G-net came, a veteran of 3 rides (all in first gear). During desert daze she got a crash course in shifting and we did a fantastic day of riding afterward

I'm flying in I've got a KLR650 at a friends north of Phoenix. Another guy Jeffery is driving but he's got a full trailer.
otherwise he would have stopped in Ohio for sure.
Does anyone know if there are more tracks available (preferably off road) some where?
