Sorry JT... just had to joke with you a li'l... It was a rough-rocky SOB after all those rains. Likely much worse now. Can't wait for another run-at-it
yer a poop...that picture doesnt show any "stepth"...the way it actually was....but yes I am an ADVer with slight vertigo. Id be game for another shot though...
I did after all ride the Big hole mountains in Idaho on little bikes when I was young.

Sooo... your the infamous younger brother. Is it true that you have a bald rear tire and an ongoing fuel leak?
Had a great time with your brother... Just hope I did not scare him too much with my trails of "mud" and cliff's.
Hope you can join one of my Out Wickenburg Way Excursions...

LOL,,, just waiting for you to chime in mark as i didnt want to spoil the young lads dreams.

i remember you and tom talking about who is older, and i think its pretty awesome that we have guys in theyre 60's and 70's still actively riding thumpers in our group.

tell us that story again of the first class seats you had at that awesome concert, called the big bang,,, oh and i really like the stories you told me about how you got drafted, into the 100 yrs war.

ok i'm done.

Friday afternoon dinner ride AZ

2spot and myself are going to do a run Friday leaving from Carefree Hwy(74) at 3pm. We will be running dirt the entire way up to Table Mesa and over toward Seven Springs Rd where we will most likely do the bridges loop and then have dinner in Cave Creek. If your up for a fun ride your welcome to come along.

Yeah... However, no more bald tire. No more fuel leak. Now have overflowing carburetor. You don't know what you don't know until you don't know it... Ya know?

Sounds like a fun ride planned for Friday, but I don't get off work until 4:00 in Phoenix. Sigh....
