    I am planning on heading out to Wickenburg to check out Box Canyon tomorrow around 9 am if anyone wants to join me. I will be leaving from my house (303 and Happy Valley) on a KTM 640e. This will be a shake down run for my trip to San Diego next month. This will be a dual sport ride, not too extreme since I am running street friendly tires.

    My bike set up:
    2001 KTM 640e
    Cee-Bailey windshield
    Happy-Trail Teton panniers
    GPS
    Shinko 705's front and rear

    Just a heads-up...
    Unless you are a real "sand-fiend" :eek1 don't attempt to reach the Hassayampa River Box Canyon from Rincon Road. Come in from the North side via Scenic Loop Road and drop in where there is a little water. If you choose you can go North from there via numerous two-tracks (recomend the Haul Road to Angels Ranch Road) to Stanton /Octave area. Continue N to Yarnell or head West to Congress. Will make a nice loop for ya.

    I'm attempting to get away for a while tomorrow but "life" has certainly been changing my plans lately...

    Thanks for the suggestions, I am not really set up for super sandy trails. Hopefully I will see you out there.
