    My house - near 101 and I-17.

    We were too busy riding for pictures...I needed to save my batteries for next week...the sun was in my eyes...I forgot I brought the camera...

    ------------------------------

    I can now claim to be the first motorcycle accident on the yet to be opened 303 loop...

    We did ride out of the Wild Horse, but we looped down to Jomax. The trail from Jomax to Lake Pleasant was awesome.
