    Sunday morning doing an easy dual sport loop around Horseshoe Lake including all the goodies (radio tower, Sheep Bridge, Spillway, etc).

    This ride is doable on most any bike. The spillway might limit larger bikes but I've been through on bikes like KLRs and my 690 no problem.

    This will not be a high speed blast but more of a milder pace.

    Bikes must be plated. All skill levels welcome. Plan on 100 miles before gassing.

    Be ready to ride at Starbucks at 23535 North Scottsdale Road Sunday November 04, at 8:30am.

    Suckered? No worries. There are a couple spots but in no way is it tough... Plus, I can get any bike through those "spots."

    I have run this route before. Hopefully we are heading to sheepskin bridge first. I ran it the other way and the hill up to the bridge was a SOB. Running it the way everyone does it, is a piece of cake

    We'll go clockwise... Easier going down the east side of the bridge than up that's for sure!!!

    Ha!
    I'm from Pasadean, Ca area!

    There is a band named the Bad Livers... An album they have is "Corn fed, inbred, brain dead." I like it and plagiarized it!!!

    Sorry, I'm not the flat lander the moniker connotes!!

    Crilly , how did that 700 do on the way back to the interstate? I suspect it went fine.

    Nice meeting you today.
