    Assuming I can get it assembled, I need to put some miles on the 990. BigE said he would lead us on an epic adventure if I would post it up. So here it is.

    Kick stands up at Wild Horse at 0600 on Sunday morning. From there to Wookieburg via Buckhorn for brekky at Ike's. After brekky, the super-secret-backcountry route to Yarnell then on to Prescott for coffee with Rattlecan. Which reminds me, maybe we should let Rattlecan know that we are coming.

    After that the plan is a little fuzzy.

    Questions, complaints, comments...... ask BigE. I'm just doing what I'm told.

    :D

    You Phunny Guy DOD!

    This is an Awesome beginner ride for those who want to get there feet wet on the dirt, not too hard, not too easy, we can accommodate if'in you want even more.

    Expect some sand, some rocks, some smooth double track, and some rutted up 2-trac. Please be prepaired for a flat or anything else that might go wrong...

    Remember, "If it's gonna happen... It's gonna happen out there!!":lol3

    One more thing, We are going to have some epic Sourdough Pancakes at Ike's Cook Shack in Wickenburg!! They are the BEST!!

    See you all there!

    I knew that if I suggested 6, Mongo would want to leave at 5. So....

    Kickstands up at 0600 at Wildhorse.

    I will change the original post.

    It's not lazy bums, it's people with social lives that keep them up past 9 on saturday night.

    C'mon Julio, you can do it.

    You can always go for a ride , but helping with your Son's team comes first in my opinion. Never missed a game in all my 4 kids growing up years. First things first:wink:


    PS Home by noon if you live in Prescott:D:D

    I would love to join you boys and maybe even show you a few really cool trails heading up to Prescott once you get up around Wagner but I don't have a bike together to do it. Your even riding on a Sunday so that makes me even more bummed. Have fun and get your lights ready for the following Saturdays night ride...:freaky

    Man... Oh... Man... wish I could join you guys for a bit of the ride on Sunday. However I'm still nursing my injured shoulder. It's been nearly 7 weeks now since the accident.

    The accident... :evil I remember like it was only yesterday- - - Was floating along this rough piece of desert... both tires dancing to the roar of the exhaust, Saguaro's and Ocotillo's flying past like fence pickets ....and from out of nowhere came this Kangaroo sized Jackalope on a KTM-moped thingy... then my memory fades away:huh :huh:huh
    Well the truth of the matter... I was trimming a palm tree, with my lovely wife at the helm of the tractor mounted cherry-picker. Well...aha, well...aha, well... what can I say we parted ways.:cry :cry :cry The cherry-picker and I - - - The wife is still here.

    Go to the orthopedic specialist on Monday, latest MRI show several complete and partial tears of "long-named tendons". As well as a few other "shorter-named muscles and tendons" that are torn, mashed, crushed, badly bent, and otherwise extremely sore S O Bs. The report even threw in a bit of Arthritis to keep things in laymen's terms.
    Hell I can't even eat at Ike's as I have a difficult time not using both hands when cakes & bacon are place in front of me. :D

    You boys have fun and If I get up the gumption I may waddle down the street and say Hi. If you hit the last cattle-guard with enough speed to catch air I can usually here ya scream'n with delight that you have landed safetly and not in the back of the Pink RV parked in the street!

    Watch for wash outs along the way, lots of rain the past few weeks. The Grader went out Constellation on Thursday but not certain as to what direction it went. No rush as Ike opens at 7am.
