Mark Sedona KLR riding Sedona to Prescott to Laughlin
Trigxrr XR650R
1stgear KTM 500 coming down fro Utah riding Laughlin to Parker

Think that's it??
Total miles for the whole ride probably over 700, with as little slab as possible.
Weather perfect with a slight chance of a shower & cooler on Tues. on return home.
Revised list.

Damn... it is hard to get these long routes organized. Sorry to hear about the trouble around Bagdad. Did you get your brake pedal set?
Tom & his boys should be South of Alamo Lake about now.

The Bagdad thing wasnt so bad , I got to ride and seen some cool sites so it was all good for me , The sucky part was having to ride the pavement
xr wasnt geared for the 65+mph speeds ... I was pushing 7500rpms at 70
Weather turned crappy on Monday around Kingman so hope they didnt get into that on there Parker run .. I was unprepared for the cold wet weather had I gone with them .

Yes I got the pedal out far enough to work for me and I didnt have a single miss all day

Highway runs are-the-Shitzzzz...
I would have to get off & push my xr4 to get over 60mph. Besides high speeds scare me.

Great bunch of riders. We had a few glitches, ride leader punched in wrong route on GPS & we went in circles for a while, but got to Laughlin in time for a beer or two. Had a bike go south coming into parker. Good planning & poor implementation. Learned a lot, will put to use next time. Thanks to all who gave it a shot

Made it!

What an epic trip! Many thanks to AZTom for organizing this trip and shepherding us thru! My short summary:

Day 1. scenic warm-up from Prescott to Bagdad via Camp Wood.
next the GPS gremlin got us and we managed to see some interesting old mines/shacks/equip. I personally managed to ride thru some gnarly stuff I was sure I could not ride. We now refer to this section as the Bagdad to Bagdad bonus loop. Then some slab to nice scenic ranching roads into Kingman/Laughlin.

Day 2. Mohave Trail. Amazing! Beautiful desert and great weather. Started out with a little sand and curvy stuff for a warm-up. Then got serious with the most amazing whoops I have ever ridden. Miles and miles of whoops. Then after a a stop at an ancient corral in the middle of the desert (what would they eat?) we started South thru the serious sand. Endless sand, nasty rotten sand. By the time the sand was done with us we decided to cut over to Needles and overnight there.

Day 3. Power line road south to Parker Dam. Fantastic scenery as we rode thru the California hills lining the Colorado river and Lake Havasu. I got to meet some curious wild Burros and ride a rocky road with 100' sheer drop offs. Don't make a mistake. Our next leg was to be past Alamo lake and a section of the Parker 400 course but one of the team had mechanical issues so we changed the plan to try and get his bike home. Alas, no joy and after 700+ miles iron butt AZTom went back to fetch him with a truck and trailer. All in all a great trip and an awesome group
