    Too bad you can't make it Buddy. Javalina don't come up this high I don't think! Haven't seen one yet anyways. Give me a shout and come up for a ride some other time.

    Another thought for Drew and others contemplating bike choice - CTR is historically a single track club. So the first dual sport A route by the club is gonna have some single track and lean toward the technical side. Even though I've seen you ride the African Twin through some nasty stuff, don't think it's gonna make the A loop because of ground clearance and weight in some places. B will be a challenge on it if you're looking for that. What else do you have these days? Last I rode with you was the Honda 250 at Coke ovens a couple years ago.

    I have a FX 450 Husaberg that I can get most anywhere rideable. Thanks for the feedback as I haven't ridden up there but once and it was the single track by the Airport. That would be all doable on the big bike but more fun on the smaller.

    all I have is the 640A now, on the fence for the A or B loop, but leaning to the B.

    Any updates on recommended campgrounds? If my wife doesn't tag along, definitely would rather camp.
    TIA

    Sounds like the B loop and the twin would be fun! Let me know if you are going.

    would anyone in the PHX area be interested in splitting the costs and trailering up?

    Closest major cross streets are Lake Pleasant and Happy Valley. You could ride it right on the trailer and jump in the truck.

    Depends on the kind of camping you want to do. Flagstaff is surrounded by national forest so there's lots of primitive camping. Some real nice spots on NF522 off Snowbowl Road which is off 180 nw of Flag. There's about 15 numbered spots that are first come first served I think. Lots of other areas off 180 like NF164 or up Schultz Pass Rd. Or SW of town off Woody Mountain Road south of route 66. Or off Lake Mary road that heads SSE out of town. There's some campground kind of places that have tent camping on route 66 on the west side of town. Went by one at the corner of route 66 and Woody Mountain Rd on the way to build trail on National Trail Day. Not sure if it's any good or not but looked ok. One next to that called Wild Bill or something like that too. I'm sure there's others since that's a major activity in this area. The CTR site has a pointer to a Flagstaff site with info too.

    Thanks Sandwash. I have ridden up there a few times and it is nice to ride in the trees for a change. Not to mention the cooler temperatures.

    Awesome! I don't remember if we've ridden together or not. I think so. Might have been one of Nightstalkers BBF. If you like single track bring the small bike and do the A or B. Or, bring a trailer and do a different type each day!
