    The ride sounds great but I have about a 50 mile ride to get to start point so I will try to make it. Is there anyone on the eastside that would want to ride out together. I was planning to another ride up over four peaks but the other guy backed out.

    I know a couple of people coming from the east side, maybe riding but maybe driving. If no one posts up for you to pool with I will let you know tomorrow evening if I can get you a ride.

    My problem right now is that the blazer's transmission is acting up. Not sure a haul out to your place for me would be the best thing to do and riding there sounds even worse. I've got a non dot front tire on the DRZ right now and as you know I hate riding that bike on pavement anyway. sigh. it's gonna be a last minute call for me.

    Just wondering - I am riding with a windscreen and want to ask if there will be any brush beating in the normal course of riding!

    Off course riding not included.

    out.

    we're going to a NYE party and more than likely will be home pretty late.

    plus I'm a wimp riding in cold temps.

    you all enjoy.

    Sending out a PM to all confirm riders above with address, directions and gate code but it should be open.

    Did a little scouting this afternoon to check on a locked gate and we can get around it no worries. This will be a fun ride.

    Light breakfast with coffee and hot chocolate at 8.30 KSU 9.00am

    If anyone else is wants to join in shoot me a PM and I will send you the meet up info. HAPPY NEW YEAR

    What bike will you be riding amd what size windscreen? The trail is mostly two track but there will definately be some hanging branches that will brush by.

    It was a great ride today. Not sure how many pictures were taken, none by me as I forgot the camera.

    Reidy008 put together an awesome track today :clap. It was cold for a little bit heading in to Wickenburg, but the trail before the dirt road kept me warm. I had to peal a layer off and the jacket liner.

    Looking forward to some pics from the others.

    I am glad I went today as Reidy put together a great connection of trails. It was great to meet you all and I have to put out a special shout to Booger and YB for picking up all the tools and tube that I left when my el cheapo saddle bag broke!


    I am glad I turned and burned when we got to Wickenburg to avoid the cooler temps later as I was chilled pretty good when I got home as it was. Added 220 miles on the ODO today!

    Thanks for the coffee and donuts this AM also Reidy!

    Guys thanks for coming out. 9 riders and lots of fun. Ewilly, xrlgsb were new riders to most and these guys can ride. Big E, and Booger came with the big bikes and these guys can ride. YBRacing, 4play and Refokus rocked the middle weight bikes and we all know they can ride and Fuzzydude2 on his 525 with an ass full of cactus was our final member of the group.

    Great day, good trails and good food at lunch. This was the best new years ride so far with a great group. Cheers :clap
