Maybe. Is this suitable for the KLR650?
Perfect bike for it. Eddie is on just about the same thing with his DR.
Yup 650cc is no problem, but i am using the DRZ400 cuz i am going exploring after C. Hot Spring rd and i get good gas mileage on Z-400.
I was really planning on joining this ride. I missed riding last week due to a nagging cold. But, with the high for Cave Creek being 49 degrees. I am going to pass. I am a wuss when it comes to the cold. I hope everyone enjoys the ride and stays warm

It might be 2 deg. higher around Lake Pleasant, but if u look on the bright sight ur bike never get to over heat, specially when reving these engines in the sand.
If you need a Chase trucks I am happy to follow you with my Nissan and its heated seats
My new truck has great heat too.
Wait, this means I have one less excuse to flake out on rides now.
I'll ride. I don't know where and when you plan on meeting but Ill come down Carefree hi way or down New River road in the morning if anybody wants to meet up. 950A KTM.
Is this still happening?
This stuff will be waiting for you in Wickenburg on Saturday...
Off course Tom, still is.
What is this? New truck month?
That thing is REAL nice!
but my truck is 13 years old so technically.....
I hope to join for this one. Don't know how much exploring I can do on the GS, but I'll go as far as I may.
A few days ago someone asked about Browns Crossing... Had not been there for several years so I had a couple extra days so off I go.
Day one trailered to Alamo Lake Road where it meets Hwy 93. Made the 35mi run mostly graded road. Headed for what I recall was Browns Crossing... Well that was not practical for me to attempt as I was alone.
This was the second choice... still not for me! Notice the ice ! ! !
Took a few more pix and by then was running out of daylight.
Went back 4 days later but this time I trailered to The Wayside Inn, via Wenden.
Did some more searching and found this route to the North Side of the lake "Brown Crossing"...
This shows the cut looking back at 100 yards of soft sand then up from sand level about 15' to the get to here.
Then a few up's - down's - up's -downs... Rocky quad trails full of silt and did I mentions lot's of head size loose rocks. Did not take many pix of this as I was travelin'...
Lots of red rocks, some slick like Moab but mostly easy going. Looked over several old Mine remains.
and the lake in the distance
Perhaps my next trip to ?
Whew.... I felt like I was back in civilization once I found the Bus Stop !
Hope you enjoy...
Very cool Mef.
I'll be in Phoenix for a few days for work but more importantly I'd like to rent a bike and go trail riding. My schedule is open in the afternoon Monday, January 21st. So far, my plan is to rent a WR450F from Extreme Arizona in Cave Creek, go 9 miles east of there and ride from 1:00 until 5:00.
Would anyone like to show a Minnesotan where to go around there? Or I'm open to suggestions on rentals, attractions, routes, etc.
Looks like it might be nice weather then...I'm probably looking at single digit highs here in Bemidji.
mefadv, Thanks very much for the info and the photos, looks doable to us, we are always up for an adventure.
Great stuff Mefa, would for sure like to meet up On you next exploration in that area. Really like riding that area.
