    Will be driving the RV down Saturday early evening so wont get there until probably 7 or 8pm. Shot me a line on what your plans are, I think Seebee1 is planning on staying but I have room for one more or two if your sweety is going with you. Looking forward to Sunday just got the rear end back on the bike but forgot to get the tire changed. Long as the handle bars stay on should be fine though:D

    Can some one tell me where the staging area is for Sunday or are both days the same?:hmmmmm I am going to try and make the Red Garter not to late to catch up with who ever is there and meet Seebee1 but we have no idea and are to lazy to read through all the posts to see if this information is there already. Looking for the easiest place to park the RV and be ready for Sunday's ride. Any info on what Sunday's estimated riding time will be? Not start but length! Actually I better get both:evil

    Well, I have the wheels on and pretty much holding air, new battery, cleaned the pilot jet so it runs, now just put the rest together so I can leave tomorrow morning for the sunlands.

    Me too.

    Last minute change in my schedule puts me in line to make it on Sunday. I will be trailering the DRZ out there. I see that the Circle K is the launching point. Can I park the truck and trailer there?

    We made it to town today, and looking forward to meeting up with you Guys+Gals Sat. There wasent any room at the extended stay on Grant but we found a place at the Red-Roof inn on the south side of Tucson on 3704 east Irvington road that is not too bad.

    Got some riding in up in Nevada on the way down wich was nice but buy the sounds of things there is lots of great places to ride down here. Should be great and keep us busy for the next couple of weeks.

    Any suggentions on where to ride while we are down here would be much apreacated.

    Try the web page below - drill down on the area around Tucson and you will find many rides in the area - you can ask about a particular ride and I am sure someone from the TABB will respond.
