    We hooked up with Eric who saw the thread and rode in from the Gila River to meet up with us on the trail.

    Reidy008 had the hot setup. Scala two way radios that saved us from going back to check on riders several times.

    Yardstick lead our group in the am, but blew a fork seal and limped back to the trucks after the CO's.

    HoosierTrailMaster on his trusty XR400. Every time I thought I had a good run going on my new fangled KTM, I'd turn around and he was right there. I guess it really is 90% rider.Doh. :lol3

    Mrs. Clinton would be proud...it takes a village to unload Reidy's trailer.

    OK, I will be the first to admit I was surprised to keep finding the 125 right on my heels.

    Are you sure there isn't a crack in the frame after this ride Julio?

    Even the desert was giving a "thumbs up" for a great ride.

    Nightstalker got a pinch flat. Here he's giving a tutorial on changing a tube.
    [​IMG]

    At the same stop, Cyberdos discovered a leaking gas tank and makes a quick steel repair good enough to finish the ride.

    JumperDave lost the will to go on and took a nap while awaiting the repairs.
