4play - KTM 600
Slowred - KTM 350
Refokus - KTM 450
Nightstalker - Honda 450X

Bullshit session ensued.



Big cactus.



This downhill was a lot worse than it looks in this picture.

This hill was as bad as it looks. Just ask Refokus.





Montek and Eric.

Great RR Nightstalker! Thx for an awesome day leading us around Wildcat. I would never have believed a KLR could have made it through some of that ST we did today. Montek is an animal on that bike. I guess it really is 90% rider.

We are going to have to do a month of just Sunday rides so that Reidy isn't always left out.

NS does a great ride report, thanks for an awesome ride. Montek is an animal on the KLR. Wildcat has some great stuff, and very nasty stuff that we bypassed

Fantastic. I've been dreaming about an AZ ride. Love the pics. How far out of PHX is this and which direction?
