After a long tough profit season in Colorado, I finally get to enjoy the skylines I grew up with.

And some great tread!

Traditionally this is the first ride I do to check conditions for the start of the winter riding season, it did not disappoint.
Dropped into Tres for three miles of the most delightful sand.
.
.
.
After thirty one miles of mixed dirt terrain, I came to this spot where I fixed a rear flat on the last ride of last years season while riding sweep for a group during Desert daze dualsport event, not one of the other riders in the group turned around to check
.
.
.
Just another reason 90% of my riding is done SOLO!
.
.
1.1 mile of assphault and I was heading into the hills again.
.
.
.
.
.

Mae West ti......... uuuhh peak looking through the JL hills.

Over looking the San Pedro river valley this DR rider was happy to be breathing desert air.
.
.

With the DR sporting a bit of new gear I am looking forward to a blessed winter riding season.
.
.

Twelve miles of assphault in four segments, Fifty five miles of dirt in three segments.

Thanks Russ!

A little, or a longtime away from the Aridzone keeps the heart pounding for those that have respect and consideration for what many hate or take for granted!

Just found your thread, it's great!

First off, my condolences on the loss of Eight Ball. I have been there and know just how much of a empty spot such a loss leaves. I can tell though that he had a great life with you. No one can ask for more than that.

Being a new rider, your writings and pictures are very inspiring. I need to get out more and I like the idea of riding solo. I hear a lot about the hazards of such a practice but the rewards would seem to out weigh the those concerns.

I hope you have a great winter of southern AZ riding. Enjoy.
Mikey

Great report and great pics. Sorry about your dog. I lost mine last year and know how you feel.

I have never ridden eastern AZ. It looks like some great riding. Hopefully I'll get out there some day.

I really like the way you travel with truck, trailer and a couple of bikes.

Most groups I have ridden with have been good about keeping track of riders and not assuming he must have turned around.

Sorry I have not posted much in the TWForum, I just have not riddin it lately.

Thanks, there is a great deal of great remote ridding in this part of the state.

Thanks, of all the different modes of travel overland I've done, the bike can get you in to trouble deeper and quicker than most, but that is a big part of the appeal.

There is a lot of good remote riding options in your neck of the woods.

I feel very fortunate to have been raised in this area and really appreciate the diversity these two deserts (Sonoran and Chihuahua) offer.
