Last year's inaugural event was outstanding, and TRS has made some changes to this year's offering to make it even better....different route, breakfast and lunch included, meet and greet the night before. So, who's going?

Epic ride for me last year. Came from CA and was worth every mile driven.
Be there!

Biggest and best group ride I've ever been on! I've been prepping for a month to get my project bike ready, can't wait to be there!

Are there sand washes involved? I'm no match for sand washes on my 800.

I think I saw a mention about them taking care to route it with as little sand as possible. They trial the route with big bikes to make sure there's a good time to be had by all. I don't remember any last year, either.

I think ATR used up all the state's supply of sand washes at Howling at the Moon :)

This ride has a few optional technical sections and should be a pleasant Sunday stroll.

I did some power line/construction lot/Pantano wash running yesterday to shake down the bikes.. the sand was fun, but I forgot at first that it's a very different riding strategy than on a 4x4..
I didn't need that mirror anyways.

TRS did a great job on this one!
Breakfast/registration inside the restaurant and out of the cold.
Route was great, fun was maximum, carnage minimal.
Lunch at Arivaca Lake was nice.
ATR even came down in force to help work the event.

Thanks for the great day!

Awesome day . Thanks to all that helped put it together. There was dust, there was mud, there were lots of rocks, and there was sand. Just kind of hit all the riding options in southern AZ.

Hey Friedom...what the hell were you riding...we didn't cross paths. You weren't the guy who broke his leg in the first 30 miles were you? Or were you the guy who won the helmet in the raffle?

Hah. I broke my mirror, so I couldn't find you.

In all seriousness, did you see the batman bike?

If not, it was because we took the first "easy way" and spent the next 4 hours more or less exploring the county side and changing a tire.

Got to ride the penny road route back after lunch, though. Great day!
