    Ron and I are going to try it again this Thursday and hope some folks show up. Last time.... nada. I'm not long for Tucson and will be returning to the hinterlands (Arivaca).

    Anyone planning to go?

    Hi guys... I am selling my heavy duty rear bumper hauler. This is a heavy duty one and can carry bigger bikes. I have carried my KLR650 on it. It also has rear brake lights, tilt ramp, ramp extension.

    I thought I would give it first shot here before listing on Craig's List.

    Asking $275.00 obo

    Hi Andy - good to meet you on Sunday at Gadsen's. I'll be there on Thursday - with my GPS and PC if anyone wants to share tracklogs, etc.

    Five of us were out on a ride today - started at Rio Rico and took Ruby Rd to Arivaca, with a detour down California Gulch and back up Warsaw, and then lunch at the Cantina. Meeting lots of fresh faces this winter :1drink

    Ever since I missed the last ride I've been checking this thread for other rides and found nuthin. Does any body here ride, or is this just a social club:D?

    I could lead a ride near Florence for a few riders who would enjoy a unique ride with some very technical components (Trials tire required) if anyone is interested.

    They do a little ride called Desert Daze around St. Pats day each year. See the part about Bull Springs Rd (FR143) back a few pages too. They ride a little....just not as much as New Mexicans do:D. They also don't have the good chillis that we do:D.

    Trying to get out of the snow for a couple days. Seems like we brought it with us instead. At least I'm not on the bike. Staying with my family in Tucson for a couple days.
    You folks meet somewhere on Thursdays for a beer?

    I was home today with a cold, so no RG for me tonight. We are riding Sunday. Meet at Last Chance Circle K on Tanque Verde at 9am. This will be a medium difficulty. Belota Ranch loop, one steep loose downhill and some rock gardens but not too tough.

    Technical components with a requirement got my attention, Sunday?:ear

    This thread was also picture rich in the past.









    This weather shuts down masonry work!
    So I took a hike in the AM.

    Sunday works for me. You pick the time since you have the longest drive. It's an hour drive from Oro Valley.

    So, I'm new to the site... Just picked up a cherry 2000 KTM 640 Adventure R. Got it in a trade, and I'm a sportbike guy so I'm not sure if I'll keep it or not, but I like it so far. Just gotta find some guys to ride with. I've taken it out a couple times this week, and keep finding myself going too fast. So... Riding with guys that actually know what the hell they are doing can't be a bad idea.

    Just saying hello. Maybe I'll catch up with you guys at the Garter soon...

    Anything going on semi local this weekend? Id like to go play on the bike saturday. Still learning, still getting my feet wet. I had thought of riding out reddington or maybe up the back side of mt lemmon. My first thouggts were charleau or chiva falls but from reading they may not be trails to learn on. Ive wheeled them dozens of times in trucks, but i have near zero experience on a dirt bike. Im pretty good on a sportbike, but dont want to just jump right in over my head and hurt myself or the bike right out of the gate.

    Suggestions?

    I'd go ride with you but I'm in the process of acquiring a different bike since I sold my last one, something with a little more torque. What side of town you on anyways?
