    No that wasn't me, but it sounds like it was a fun ride.

    You guys are likely getting tired of seeing my bike or me'n bike in front of cactus. However Cyberdos says it did not happen unless you have photo's. Soooo
    Saturday & Sunday rides... both rides, West of Wickenburg, were about 70 miles each. Saturday was 99% dirt and Sunday had 7 miles of pavement getting through Wickenburg. Those Damn Roundabouts :eek1 on the weekends are like a meat-grinder!

    Have never run across these signs before? I was careful not to excavate too much with the rear tire...

    Still putting together my li'l loops to make a bigger loop to Parker. Certainly will not be a highspeed treck... more of a leisurly excursion, with some bumps along the way.:clap

    You were at the World Famous, Alamo Lake, Wayside Campground & Resturant. Carl and his wife, serve some really nice greasy-burgers & cold beer. But even better they have fuel available 99% of the time. That whole complex is powered by one really big generator! :ear
    Yes... that Congress cut-off is a tough one to find/follow.

    wow. That's a road bed failure. All the good riding is on 89A anyway.

    Is it just me? Or, can you spot an opportunity to catch some air off this road (ie jump)?

    My wife always HATED this part of our drive to Lake Powell... I always towed the 5<SUP>th</SUP> wheel and she followed along towing the bass boat. :D A few years ago one of those damn-crazzy-tour-busses passed her going up this hill. :eek1 She was on the inside lane with no shoulder and it scarred the crap out of her!
    She was not concerned about being in an accident… but- - - what I may do to the stupid bus driver if he scratched my pristine boat! :mad?

    Hopefully they will fix this correctly and not do a quick-fix.

    You gotta wonder who's the bigger idiot. The one that plans for a ride like that or those who follow. :lol3

    We miss you man. Come down and visit us sometime.

    I definitely want to visit. We FINALLY sold our house in Mesa in January. Glad that nightmare is over.:wink:

    The local inmates and I are considering riding Baja in October, but I don't know yet if I can make it...

    Got a little taste of desert riding last weekend. Ride report is HERE. It didn't end so well. First time I've ever been fully extracted with a dead bike.

    I call that composition "Rodeo.....You're Doing It Wrong". :D

    Fuckers should have given me front page, above the fold for that shot. But instead they put a pic of a buck in someone's back yard and a story about tractors. Typical Wickenburg. :lol3
