    Just hands reaching through the fence wanting handouts.

    Get use to it we're about to get more.

    That ride getting there was a joy and a challenge for this PA boy. All this sand but I think I did ok. I'm sure the new light 501 helped too

    I enjoyed riding with you Snake Oiler and SquatBird Junior. Remember....Sand is the BEST THING TO FALL DOWN IN. That makes it look a lot better.

    Well folks. I'm back in town for another go around. Yeah I know it's early, but I'm to meet up with a couple other for a ride on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon at the end of month. So figured I'd just drop off the trailer/house on the way. But plan to take in a few more sights this year.

    Peace to all

    Well got back from an adventure in AZ and Utah. Had an invite from @CapeMan to join him around the North Rim of the Grand canyon. He opened his house up to me and him and his wife were the greatest Host. I can't thank his wife and him for sharing their meals enough.

    Here's a few memories that will be in my thoughts for ever. And so wanting more. IMG_20191007_195423_379.jpg IMG_20191003_142422498_HDR.jpg IMG_20191003_122728620_HDR.jpg IMG_20191003_134740238_HDR.jpg IMG_20191003_121518628_HDR.jpg

    Well I was at it again. Decided to load up the bike in the truck and take a short trip. I've been trying to get to bisbee Arizona from here in Deming. So I tricked to Duncan knowing there's gas there. Did some site seeing and came up with a couple of ideas along with some awesome viewing.

    And if anyone can help with some dirt south of Duncan, please don't hesitate to contact me.

    Peace

    Fantastic looking country. Great pics.

    You might have already found this. But if you head west about 17 miles on US 70 you will come to Hackberry Ranch Rd down thru the Whitlock valley to I10 at either Bowie or San Simon.
    Most of this road is easy, but both branches are sandy and hard to navigate down south. From San Simon there is a major dirt road down to there Chiricauhau mountains. Then there is a really fun primitive road heading west to Apache Pass rd.

    There is also an interesting looking road that parallels most of the north part of Hackberry Ranch Rd. We were going to try it a few years ago but skipped it because the pipeline road south of Duncan leading to it looked really unappealing.

    PM me if you want some tracks.

    Did you do any heavy maintenance to the Husky over the summer, @Snake Oiler?

    I'll pm you in a bit.

    Actually I've been flying by the seat of my pants. Just heading to a place and explore. I'll check out the maps when I get lost. Lol I know the direction I want is west and south. But help is always appreciated.

    Was thinking about a top-end or a clutch rebuild. Sounds like there was no need. Just curious.

    Not yet. But I'll probably be putting the Rekluse clutch dampers in some. I have about 70 hours on her and I think it's about time for new ones and Rekluse are way better from what I read

    Maintenance like a top end or clutch? KTM /Husky engines of this type are very reliable and do not need all the maintenance that trolls on here try to lay out there. Just as good as any Japanese bike for sure. Top quality parts inside.

    There's still a little more love they require, but the performance and fun factor is worth it to me.

    It was awesome to see my buddy @Branchbuster again. And riding for a sandwich to Silver City was a good day. IMG_20200115_115803679_HDR.jpg
