    did the bull springs road 2 up with my daughter and all my camping gear. wanted a "shake down" run to test everything and see what our limits were together/loaded on the bike. have a much better idea now. had lunch at the velvet elvis, then to senoita and madera canyon to home. not a bad little day. only thing that needs work is the seat. gonna call carlos tomorrow....

    Jason, I have a gel seat I will sell you cheap. That low fender looks good...until you get in your first mud and then the thing breaks like a cheap watch.

    Well dang. I met up with KampberBoB yesterday, and we rode out Redington Pass with intent to go up Mount Lemmon Control and down the paved side, but we had conflicted reports on the Control Road condition, so we opted out. It was getting a bit late, as well. Now I know!

    I've got an 85 Suzuki dr250 I'm looking for a new home for. Valves adjusted about 40 miles ago, ran it around today. Have a XT350 also which runs like a tank, but i think the frame isis bent cause left turns are easier than rights :) both are kick start, both are fun. Also have a Chinese 250. Xmotos xb250, 2007. Fun, but not nearly as comfy on the arse. That one has a magic button and a kick.

    I've got an '81 XL250 that needs to go away. Kick start only, needs a bit of love (pet cock valve, kill switch, chain, a few minutes of basic wiring). Has a lighting kit (head/tail/turn) & a clean AZ title.

    Hi,

    I usually ride my DR650 with the sportbike group, but thought it would be fun to do some Adventure (TM) riding with you guys. Who rides when to where? Is my stock range far enough?

    Thanks in advance,

    James "Psycho" Ward

    I've been out to Chiva Falls on several bikes, but the only on I manged to make it and not drop it was a Honda NX125. :-) I ended up upside down sitting on a cactus with my old XT600 back in the day...

    Yup. I've got a Michelin desert. It needs a good home. The side walls are really stiff. You can probably run it flat if you had to. Knobs are in fair shape. Send me pm.

    Hi everyone! A couple of you know who I am (Hoosier, Drizzt) More of you might recognize me if I was on one of Bonzai Becky's rides. Anyway, after several years of waiting I have finally acquired a dirt worthy bike of my very own. :clap
    I'm looking forward to getting out there and doing some riding with all of you. Hopefully I'll see ya on a trail soon.

    I'm practicing a new jump.....on my 2 stroke, they can do anything....and was wondering if anyone has such a device so I can make a cool ramp.

    I've got a ladder you can borrow, but I don't want you using it for a motorcycle ramp! I'd like to ride with you again!

    Ok, I promise to ride with you again. I'll use the ladder on a stairwell light fixture.

    I am going to be in the Tucson area May 22 - May 31 and am interested in doing some dirt bike day trips while there. Since I will be traveling solo I am interested in tagging along with some locals.

    Any ideas or trips please reply or PM

    Thanks, Chris
