    Hey Phoenix area riders, I live in western CO and have to come out to Gilbert AZ for a meeting the first of February. It's cold and getting colder here in Colorado so I'm thinking about bringing the truck so I can ride for a couple days in warm weather before I head back. I'm thinking a two day loop mostly dirt with an overnight in a little town somewhere and ending up back at the truck in Gilbert or Phoenix the next day. I ride a XR650R so rough roads are fine but will likely be traveling alone so nothing too wild. Thanks in advance for your help!

    You could probably find a great route down to tucson. Over night down there and back. Someone is going to have to chime on the road names and #'s the back way east on dirt. I think you could find some one to go with.

    That would be great. I'm looking for some details on roads and areas as I've never been out there. If someone out there would like to ride along, the more the merrier!:freaky

    As said, just trying to make a warm weather ride out of a work trip I'm not overly excited about.

    I live in Western Colorado so I'm willing to trade intelligence on awesome riding opportunities out here for what you know out there!!! :wink:
