The power of the internet- Az 2012

through the power of the internet, I was able to coordinate a couple of different rides in the SouthWest... First we started off in a little riding area near Phoenix called Mesquite Wash. We had taken the truck with bikes in the back, so it wasn't so bad.
crappy picture, but, the first night's dinner of steak on a stick


the terrain was typical southwest... manzanita, mesquite, and assorted other pointy things ready to poke you


and the impressive Saguaro...


impressive if you don't end up hugging one


Impressive spines out there too


sandy washes with whoops


my riding buddy Vic and our Phoenix trail guide AzRich


what I do NOT have pictures of are the ruts... deep ruts dug in to rocks... within the ruts are more ruts where the fork tubes groove out the walls... on TOP of the walls are more ruts where riders drag there feet... this is a scratch on my bike side panel and muffler from the side of the rut


that was end of day one

Day two was a 125 dual sport ride to the twon of Punkin Center... started with another sandy wash, then slick fire roads




Vic and Rich


Some radio tower


Overlooking Roosevelt Lake


We arrive at Punkin Center






a town that relishes their uniqueness




Evidence of a fairly recent fire


Vic finding a cool cave


look closely and you can see the flying mammal


Vic exploring a little side route


Hairy ape just hanging out


Found an old cabin along the way


Rich is not all that tall


Cue up day 3

we head up to Prescott where ADVriderss own Rattlecan offers to lead us around- running a good pace, he ends up a little sideways


at this point, my camera took a dump, but rattlecan (bob) got a few more pictures on his smartphone... including the one that sent him home for the day; bounced off a rock at high speed, and ended up busting up an old tree, a new KTM, and an old wrist

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

It's all fun until someone gets hurt.
