R-
If the water level is low on the Aqua Fria, all but the last mile up to the mine is a A with some B class ride. The ride could get into class C on that last mile. The entire Boulder Creek spur should be Class B.

Nightstalker would be a good person to PM on this. The last time I was up to Tip Top was 3 years ago in my Nissan xTerra. I have never done this ride on a bike. In the Nissan it was a no brainer and only required 4wd on the last mile up to the mine site.

How 'bout if we get a few more SWDSRs in on this. It's an easy BBF ride.
Let's see how this works; Here is a google map of the route map that KLRKirk gave me

I'm trailering my XRL to Table Mesa Rd.

Never been there before.

Anybody know if the cops hand out tickets for parking over there? Do they tow you away? That would suck soooooooooo bad ...

Terry, this is your stomping ground, what do you say?

I was thinking about doing the same thing. I've never seen any no parking signs there. Can I chain my Harley to your trailer?

We never met, but I've seen pix of your setup.

We could hook up your hog to my trailer, & hook your trailer up to that! So, it would be a Saturn towing a trailer with a Honda on it, towing a Harley that's towing a trailer with another Honda on it.

Better yet, my Miata has a trailer hitch ... we could use that!

Would you call it more of an abortion or an abomination?!

It's never been a problem on the west side of I-17 to park and ride. Lots of it going on there all the time.

Sorry guys, that WAS NOT the point of the ride. I needed him to get out of the house, hang with Z boys so I could have some peace and quiet!

Those riding this weekend, please be careful. I hear there is bad weather from Friday through Saturday. Although this is Arizona....

Someone asked if we could sticky SDSR forum for our own, anyone know who to contact for info on this??...... think Misery Goat might know? ShinySide said he has someone we could tag on to, but I already have the program. All it is, is $$$$$ needed.

BikeCrisis - Im doing a video part deux on you. I think we better re-film it with your new jacket on, ya think? GO GO TURTLE POWER !!!

Last I saw we're meeting at the Chevron at I-17 and Carefree Hwy at 10AM. Table Mesa Rd is only 5 to 10 minutes from there, so we should be pulling in not too long after 10AM. See you then. I'm thinkin' with that car/trailer/bike/hog/trailer/bike setup you won't be hard to find.

Where I am thinking, we won't need to pay. They will be happy for the traffic.
