Great ride report, LoneStar. I'm originally from the Big Bend area and I remember Paisano Pete in Ft. Stockton very well from my childhood. I agree that some of your pics from AZ look like the Texas Hill Country or maybe some of the areas in the Big Bend. Some of your pics from downtown Bisbee almost looked like they were taken in Europe. Having gone solo many times to NM and CO, I know what it's like to be "out there" alone on a thin ribbon of blacktop in the desert.

Phenomenal report with great pics! Makes me wanna ride to AZ! Thanks for sharing.

LOL - too funny man - I got so lost in all those streets I barely knew up from down. Were you up near the Episcopal church? Next year I'll be there for dinner

You're lucky to live in a cool town like that. I want to come back and spend more time in that area... explore some roads around there

Yeah - Just across the parking lot from the Episcopal Church - My wife cooked a turkey for them for their dinner, then cooked ours.

Let me know about next year, we'll have a spot at the table.

Great RR. I appreciate the lyrical, satirical voice and great pics. Here in the cold north we'll have to wait a few months for any good riding again.
God is good and give us much to enjoy

Sacrificial Anode was correct. I have stayed & eaten at the Queen. There is a much better restaurant down from the Queen on the main street and some remodeled lofts just up from there on the main street. The Bisbee Breakfast Club south of the mine in Warren is a killer place for breakfast. Much better than Tombstone & the riding is great too. Like that way you came in through the tunnel.

Nice report and pics!

I was in Tombstone on Wednesday, saw the KLR, and lots of Harleys.
Unfortunately I was in the car with the whole family.

Thanks for the great trip!
