    [Bill, how about meeting at Dunkin Donuts on Power and Mckellips NW corner at 9am and then ride up to Cave Creek for brunch. (I am sure one of our west side riders knows a good spot) :wink: Then we can ride through Ft Mcdowell on dirt.[/QUOTE]


    Paul,

    Just noticed that there is no Dunkin Dounuts on Power and Mckellips

    Did you mean the McDonalds?

    Does anyone have a mechanic that they like to work on small dual sports in the east valley?

    I sure do miss Dillon when he was in Mesa!

    Jason Hiles at AZMOTO. He is a really good mechanic. He was the lead mechanic at the KTM shop back in the day.

    He is on Greenfield and Virginia.

    I forgot my camera and my cell phone pics got deleted :cry We wound up taking the shorter loop and it worked out perfect as it was getting late.

    Definitely need to go back and see the rest soon.

    Nothing like Coke Ovens. You could do it on your Super Tenere as long as you stay on the main route up the back way. There is alot of bonus sections that would take a small bike with a talented rider to make it up but you can bypass them no worries. I can lead you up that way some time if you like or there are a few other ways that are easier if you want to dip your toe in slowly.

    It was a chilly day out there for sure !

    Stay with them based on their good mechanics. :)

    Scene moving to Tempe I have taken my bike to Moto Center several times. Jordon and David seem like very honest and knowledgeable guys. They are also open on Mondays which is a convenient for me so I can get all weekend booboos fixed or replaced timely :)
