October ride @ the Arizona Strip
The "Arizona Strip" is not a gentleman's club. It's a vast chunk of BLM dirt south of St. George, Utah. And we're going there.
Starskey, Warp9man, Infidel, and others.....are going to be there for one final bash before the cold weather sets in. We plan to travel down on October 23, and return on the 27th.
The land yacht owned and navigated my Warp9man will be mission control, and if all goes well it will be parked somewhere south of St. George near the Arizona state line. We'll be close enough to St. George that those desiring a hotel room will not be far away, and those wanting to camp with us will not be THAT close to the city.
There is a LOT of VARIED land out there. There's something for the big bikes, and something for the small. The intent is for our large group to break into smaller groups every day, depending on bike size, riding style, and what everyone wants to see, then do our thing and return in the evening for comraderie, swapping lies, and other such tomfoolery.
Early on in the trip, I'd like to lead a group from mission control up and over Mount Trumball, to my favorite Grand Canyon overlook at Tuweep. This will be a great ride through the middle of the area, and thus giving everyone a taste of what is out there. I used to work out there, and I think there's something for everyone.
Indian petroglyphs, piney highlands, red rock canyons, historic sites, caves, white washes of gypsum...this place has something for everyone. For those that like to fish, there are a couple of decent resivoirs around. Additionally, St. George has motorcycle shops and other "stuff" so we can get parts, go to restraunts to eat, and enjoy other amenities.
If you think you'd like to join us, post so here and we'll get some details and organization going. If you can't be up there for the whole thing, we'd enjoy having you there as much as you can.
Check in here!
