    Are the sunday morning meetings still going on? I wouldn't want to stop by if nobody goes there anymore.

    Well since I am not riding tomorrow and the Cave Creek Coffee Company is not longer in business we can meet at Harold's Corral. I am thinking of going in the morning for Breakfast.
    I am planning to be there around 8:45am if anyone wants to join me.

    Maybe the Black Mountain Cafe in Carefree for Sunday meetings? It has a really nice outdoor area and is a liitle less touristy. Good food, fast, and not too expensive.

    Good choice. Some of the girls from 4C have moved over to the grotto, but that place isn't right for bikes. Hard to beat the atmosphere of 4C

    Sounds good. Do you guys want every other sunday?......or a set 2 sundays a month? Like first and 3rd, etc? Sometimes it can be confusing if you miss a few, to remember which one it should be when it's every-other. Where-as if it's a set date twice a month it's easier to remember.

    Yes. good idea. The first and 3rd Sunday of every month.
    Next Sunday I am thinking of a ride back-way to Crown king from lake pleasant.
    The weather is cooperating again and I am recovering from the cold.

    Thanks EDDY I had a great time. N. Mine rd was like an amusement ride (Wild Mouse). I was surprised to see patches of ice on Castle Hot Springs Rd.

    The back way to Crown King??? What kind of bike are you riding? We did that on MX bikes years ago, and it was tough on those bikes back then. Unless the road has become a lot better, I don't know that I'd ride the KLR.

    The back way has been bladed and can be done on a big bike quite easily now. Came down that way today.

    Eddy, thanks for putting this ride together. I had a blast. We had a a great group to ride with. Very diverse. From my little 250 L to a 990 KTM.
