    Yes. And Yes again. I'm still planning on a trip or two all the way to Havasu and back, probably sometime after the first of the year.





    Unrelated: Would anybody be interested in a bunch of patchable tubes? I have a few I have been meaning to patch and keep as spares but I just don't see that happening. Free to a good home. :D

    swansea is a great ride for a bike like the busa,,,,, no really, its an easy dirt rd but a great destination. you can make a pretty awesome loop continuing from swansea, across the bill williams, to signal and out the big sandy river. good scenery out there and quite a bit of mining history if you look for it.

    Sounds like Swansea will be a destination during the week for me the last week in December. I'm on vacation and want to get out there.

    So pick a day. This is on my "want to ride" list. I bet I can talk Big-E and MonteK into this.

    Start with breakfast at your place Scott? :D

    The mining company still maintains the fencing around the site and it doesn't look like there is any 'authorized' access.

    The town was eventually named Swansea after the town where much of the ore was shipped to for smelting back in the day. It's in England.

    There is also a Swansea, Mass. Maybe others I do not know about.
