    Yeah well, I just read the group's requirements and my 400, which I trailer to the staging area, does not pass their minimum CC standards.

    The DRZ's maiden voyage a few days after I purchased her was a cold 80 mile ride by myself up to Payson to meet with a buncha whackos at 8am for a ride. they proceeded to drag my ass on a ride called "The Hell Ride". We ended up crossing the Verde River guided by moonlight at around 10pm. I arrived home at about midnight. I think I've done enough of the macho "I have to ride my bike to the ride" shit. I'll leave that for the guys that have something to prove.

    Went to Wickenburg yesterday. Had a GPS track I got from Reidy008. came across a fellow inmate (Terb) along the way.

    nice graded roads at the start

    [​IMG]

    First of several gates
    [​IMG]

    Some of the milder sand on Buckhorn

    More of Buckhorn

    Found the Peanuts artwork I had heard about

    [​IMG]

    Crazy rocks. I would not want to be in this canyon during the monsoon season
    [​IMG]

    As you can see by this boulder with debris piled on top of it.
    The boulder is about 5 ft tall.

    [​IMG]

    Nice scenery. But again I bet the water can fly through this narrow canyon

    [​IMG]

    finally heading to higher ground and out of the sand

    [​IMG]

    More scenery
    [​IMG]

    Who puts a gate on a hill???

    looking back at the road behind.

    Another place I heard about. Isaac Bradshaw's Grave site

    [​IMG]

    I wonder if the Bradshaw Mountains is named after his family or maybe after him?

    Lots of mines as I got closer to Wickenburg

    [​IMG]

    Made it to Wickenburg. I was running late so I slabbed it back to home. great ride with
    lots of interesting scenery.

    Hello from Mesa, AZ. Hopefully I can meetup and do some awesome rides with this great bunch. I was out on the Apache Trail today. I left the main road a couple times for some exploring. I ride a 01 DRZ400E SuperMoto and a 08 Aprilia Tuono 1000 R.
    Heres some pictures.

    You rode East to Wickenburg and I rode West toward Wenden on Saturday and again on Sunday. I may even sneak away this afternoon before another winter blast hit's us!

    Hey Tom,

    Did your travels take you along the Northern edge of Alamo Lake or did you make you normal route? Now that I see you made 220 miles... That kinda answers my own question. Have you found the dirt route from Congress to Alamo Road yet? Bummer about your camera.
    It was certainly a good day to be out & about.

    Got through from Congress but I don't remember how!! Went west on Alamo, west on Pipeline Ranch, up Palmerita & got to a little resturant camp ground south east of the lake? Had lunch & tryed to head back east over to 93 but ended riding all over the place & ended up back to Alamo Rd & back across. Some great trails & riding over in that area for sure. Probably will head that way again soon.
