    Trailer queens (myself included) assembling at the staging area. Quite a number of folks rode in, including RangerScorn who rode up from Tucson, did the ride, and then returned to Tucson after the ride!!!

    Good idea for a night ride :thumb I'm impressed with how well those cameras worked at night. I couldn't see that well. Let me know when they come out with a lense like that for goggles

    I was wondering why I didn't see you. :lol3

    I can't believe the racket my 640 makes when running. I talked with Spencer(I think I'm remembering his name correctly), who has a 950 Super Enduro and a 625, who told me if it ever starts running quiet is when you start worrying. :eek1

    We left a number of riders at the bridge who were camping for the night. Rangerscorn and I rode sweep to Horseshoe Dam.

    From the dam, it's a fast 12 miles or so back to the trucks.

    75 mile loop total.

    What rear tire do you run? Must be a stiff carcass. I think I did 270 miles on my 640 door to door. I was more than ready for a beer once I got home.
