Are you off roadin' it from Winona to Williams or just slabbin' it? Also, Perkinsville road from Chino up or again, slab.
... just things I need to know in case your wife calls up and says you never made it home.

Cherry cut off, GWT to 169, Copper Canyon to Camp Verde, 618, Beaver Creek, Stoneman Lake, Lake Mary, 82e, Winona to 40. Leupp to Bia70 Across Grandfalls & the Res. to Cameron. Down 89 to Gray Mouuntain TT, over to Tusayn. West past the Tin House Down Espee to Fr6 & over to Williams, down Perkinsville to 354, down to Chino & home. As little slab as possible. Shooting for 13 hours? We will see

Funny.... Maybe you could strap some spare handlebars to your fork leg.... just in case.

Aborted at, Winona Rd & the 40. Mud, mud & more mud. Did I mention Mud No camera & no pics. Got the bike stuck, got me stuck I hate that stuff, like glue 1/2 way up my boots, chain, brakes, crapola. Thought about finding a quarter car wash in Flagg, but would have put me too far behind time. Slabbed it home & made a mess of the local car wash Next time I will get you to go along Tom.

I kind of wish I would have cancelled it all but I had a great ride up to that point. Thought the heavy rain was farther east. Was I wrong

First half was super. As the sun began to rise I noticed I wasn't making any dust behind me, first clue. When I hit Lake Mary RD the temp dropped & I put jacket on. Love riding in that area. I know we need the Monsoons but they do make a mess in the north.

Why do you want me to come along and ride through that mud? I'm not too fond of the last time I got stuck in the mud...
