    Cool!

    Thanks.

    I think I've heard of this sheep bridge before.

    I have a street bike, too. Let me know if you're doing any road trips. :)

    I have been seeing more PM's as well but have been fortunate that I haven't had any issues. That might be due to the fact that I keep a low profile but if it was not for ADV I wouldn't have met so many great people. I guess you take the good with the bad

    All,

    After a couple of these harder rides (well for me anyway) I was thinking of a nice easy Sasco ride for Feb 2 (this weekend doesn't work for me) Anyone intrested or have any other possible suggestions?

    Hey guys, this "easy" ride might be a great start for me. I rode once with Cyberdos over at Johnson Ranch but my bike was really not yet set up. Its not ready to go and would like to hear more about the ride and also see if you guys would not mind if I (yes a nube) comes with. Was trying to find the coordinates of the Ghost town which is what I assume is one of the way points but only found the cemetery (same?).

    BTW been riding for over 30 years and started on the dirt when I was 15 but been riding street for the last 25 :) so nube more or less to this high sprung machine and this type of terrain (Midwest flat dirt trails kinda riding).

    750V thanks for responding! That sounds like what I was looking for just want to have a good time and be with other riders. Not real keen on being out alone and having a problem. At my age not real interested in picking up the bike 10 times and dealing with broken bones. So an easy does it pace as I get used to riding off road again it great. My only issue is a 2.5G tank. I think its gives me about a 80 mile range before the SH#$ factor kicks in. I have some Aux capability but more for emergency as its only 2ltrs. So I will need to understand the gas stops etc to see if this is ok for me until I either sell my bike or buy a new tank :rofl

    Nochain,

    Don't worry about gas, I only can go about 125 miles myself but I can bring a 1.5 gal extra container if anyone needs it.

    This is definitely big bike friendly, as Paul said “We normally have breakfast at Tag's diner in Coolidge at about 8 or 8:30 am then ride the back roads through the town of Picacho, AZ. We follow the frontage road to the Red Rock exit for I-10. Follow Red rock until it turns into Sasco Road. The ruins are nothing all that awesome due to vandals, but it is a nice dirt road ride all the way around to the SilverBell mine and then back out to Marana road. Again nothing super spectacular but some nice desert scenery and not so horrible dirt roads that are more road than trails. Of course there are plenty of side trails and other ways to go.”


    We can also take the Florence Kelvin Highway to Barkerville Rd from Coolidge if we wanted to add some more easy dirt.
