It's closed now. Not sure when it's open. Check with Coranado NF website before your trip.
Mt. Lemon got dumped on the last two days.
But it will get up to the high 80's this week so the snow should be melting fast.
I'm in Catalina and ride around to that side of the mountain a few times a week,
I'll post on here when it's open to DS bikes.
Thanks, looks like you are also snow bird. I will be in Prescott until the 19th then head down there to ride Lemon then back to Wickenburg for 22nd. If you remember to post can you PM me?
Just stopping by to say hi and introduce myself here. I am new to this forum and just looking for a good group of ADV riders to get out on the weekends with and ride. I live downtown Tucson on 6th n Congress. Hopefully I will be able to get out and ride with you guys.
Hey nice to see you on this forum, KLR!
I need a shop recommendation.
I have a friend who had a GSXR stolen. The police recovered it, but it's a bit jacked up. The thieves punched out the ignition, broke the fork lock with a pry bar or something similar, and in the process busted the top triple (where the ignition attaches) broke a tab/bracket off the radiator, and did some other damage.
My buddy is trying to figure out if he can fix the ignition as is or if he needs a new top triple. He also installed the new ignition and found out that the the gauges don't work.
He has a thousand dollar deductible, and he is trying to DIY as much as possible, but needs someone to take a look at the triple and the gauges. Any recommendation on a shop thats good with electrics?
A good place to start is at the Desert Daze meet over in Dragoon this weekend.
See the "DualSportDesertDaze 2013 - March 14-17" thread on this forum.
I look forward to meeting you.
What year is it? Does it run with the new ignition other than the instruments not working? As far as local shops he might try stopping by Evan Steel Performance and talking to those guys as they might be familiar with running new or no ignition on the GSXR and communications with ECU.etc... depending on how new it is. Also, tell your friend to post his questions in the gixxer forum. Those fuckers must have been down this road before.
Or, if its a 600 or 750 and 2008 or newer he could sell it to me super cheap as is and I can make it my new track bike.
+ 1 for evan steel. Those guys are awesome. Ive been doing business with them for years and ive never been disappointed.

I'll have him check them out. It's a relatively new bike, I think its an '08 or '09. He installed the new ignition and found the broken part on the triple. With the new ignition installed he said the bike runs, but the gauges don't work, except the high beam indicator. I told him to trace the wiring back from the gauges to see if they got broken or split when then stole the bike, because then he might just be able to splice them back together and get it working again. But he may need the shop anyway to get a broken bolt out of the radiator.
Thanks for the help!
I rode up from Oracle today to the gate at the top of the F.S. road.
No issues a few muddy spots.
The gate at the top was locked, but I think you could ride around it
if so motivated.
Twist it, Max
Allyn and Cathy,
I finally found the video that I thought of while you two were warming up your bikes on the last ride. You two-stroke hooligans...

Sweet mother of god. The guy off the bike @ 0:13, lol.
Good fucking grief....
I knew should have freaking bought up the rights to that video so it couldn't get out.
Thanks Heading over it middle of the week.
That was so funny, I literally busted a gut, laughed my arse off 'til tears streamed down my face.
Unfortunately some developments at home have led me to put my WR250R for sale. Figured I'd link it here in case there was local interest.
Thanks for info. Rode up from start of highway up mt then down dirt road (gatge open) to San Manuel then dirt road back around south side of mountions. What great views, fantastic ride. I am putting this in as an option for the Great Western Trail.
I will post new file with thiis when I get back home next week. See the whole thing on GPSXchange.com
