    In for the pre-run. I do a lot of riding around here so the route chosen should be interesting for me.

    If anyone needs a ride out to the staging location and back my truck has room for another bike. I'm in Ahwahtukee.

    I did a little pre-pre-ride-ride today. :lol3 I have been wanting to check out the AZ Trail from Picket Post trailhead, but it is pedal, hoof or foot only singletrack. I made it to the point that it hooks up with Telegraph Canyon that we will be riding through on the next two Saturdays.

    Pretty wimpy looking map. I did the red section. Blue is what we will be riding with motors. :evil

    But the elevation profile is a bit less wimpy.

    Guy's my next door neighbour has started riding but isn't up to this level yet. He would like to ride in one of the chase vehicles if possible? Could some one shoot me either Rogers or Jersey number so i can find him a seat. Cheers

    The razr is only 800cc's and weighs 1300lbs, extra people/weight really limit the fun factor. I wouldn't want to ask him to carry more than one. I will ask Dave, how big is your neighbor?

    Not going to be able to make it this Saturday. The Dr says I need at least 7-10 days of taking it easy and no stress. WTF is he thinking, the bike relieves the stress...........:lol3

    Have a fun and safe ride, I will be in for the Saturday after Thanksgiving. I am going to pick up the bike from Dr. Dillon today, probably have time to put in the new needle and jets........:evil

    unfortunately, i've gotta call out on this years' ride. i'll be leaving for oklahoma sunday morning to hunt deer. normally, it wouldn't be worth it for a deer, but in ok, you get to take 4 doe and 1 buck. that's a lot of table meat!
    have fun!
