Is there a spectators area where one could watch while sipping iced tea?
Most of the areas I'm thinking about would be accessible with a short hike from where a side-by-side could go.
You really should include a deep water crossing for the hydrophobic to work out their issues
Been there, done that. Don't need a re-run.
I could bring a kiddie pool if you haul the water :)
OK, I'm down. Now I just need some directions intended for someone who's never been there before.
It's simple. Just head towards Payson on the Beeline. After you pass Four Peaks road you'll make the left (4 miles) at the next intersection.
Here's a link from Florence to the staging area.
Cool, now I even know travel time.
Does anybody know if I can come into town on 60 on Sunday morning without getting jammed up in construction traffic? I can come up Ironwood if I need to.
No need really. The 60 only ever sees traffic through there when the Renaissance fair is open.
They've been working on the highway, I'm told there's been huge backups. Hopefully they won't be working on Sunday.
Would a XR650R with a 6 gal tank be too big for the practice?
Probably not the best choice, but if you're a strong rider and I don't have to pick it up or kick it repeatedly for you, it might be okay.
You coming down for this? I may attend with camera in hand, since this appears to not be 640 Adv friendly.
I'm out for riding. Tweeked my knee on the Coke Ovens ride and it still ain't right.
I'd be up for the spectators area though! Could I get in there with my jeep?
I'm too lazy to ride my dirtbike to the practice area. Will someone let me ride bitch and just let me beat up their bike on the challenge sections? Either way, I still plan on coming :)
Yeah, If you, Jeff and Nightstalker go, I might bring my fat bike down. Sounds like fun.
Maybe I need to rethink this a little bit. My original thought was to get on the trail and look for challenging obstacles to practice and find a flat spot here and there to practice wheelies and other control moves. I'd like to master the slow wheelie one of these days -although with a 500 and 14:50 gearing, slow is relative. Obviously we don't want to do this stuff in the parking lot. One area I wanted to get to is the big boulder section that we spent quite a bit of time in during the OHV video shoot. There are a few ways to get a jeep close, but it's still going to be a little hike to get to that spot.
Or... We could do quite a bit just across from the Mesquite parking area. The east side gets less traffic and is totally accessible by jeep or big bike. It doesn't have the trail obstacles or big boulders, but we could look around for something.
Don't worry about us spectators Yardstick. We'll either find you or fall down and take pictures of ourselves.
like the idea of "parking lot " practice. I will have the kid in tow so if you guys are doing it in a place accessible by truck I'm still in. He'll be on his 65 but I'm not sure I want to drag him down gnarly trails yet. If it's not happening I'll just to catch the next one.
Sure. I'll go. Why don't you meet me at my place and we can head over together.
