    No big deal Bbg if we end up in a smaller group the advantage is we'll be moving faster :evil. I just made my reservation at the Days Inn.

    I had better be finding a bike soon or I am out. The DR650 left the garage this morning. The GS is too big and the little XR250R just won't carry my ass around.

    I have my peepers peeled!!!!

    Let me know if you know of anything.

    I'm interested but confused. The original post says that the ride starts at I17 and Bell. What's the deal? Thanks.

    We'll slab it from I-17 and Bell to Dugas rd exit where the off road section start. After that It's all off rd till Flagstaff with an exception of ~ 12 miles black top here and there as liaisons sections.

    Sorry Eddy, I'm going to have to drop out of this ride. Was looking forward to the long fast fun after all the slow single track banging I've been doing lately. Damn.

    This looks like fun! However, I already have plans for this weekend. I hope a ride report is written up with pics as I haven't explored the area you guys are going to be riding in very much.

    Good luck everyone.

    The ones that are for sale.:rofl

    Sorry....had to say it. I thought I had a deal worked out for an XRL in Cali with CRF front end, but I wanted to give x and he would only take y....so back to the drawing board I guess.

    I mean I would like to buy 2 bikes at the same time. Seriously considering buying an XRL and 2 smoke KTM for single track. But I know I will have to spend quite a bit on the XRL to get it the way I want it so I am trying to find a low mileage one for cheap. There is one in PHX that I have been talking to the owner about but no deal yet.
