    We took a spin down to the Gila River.

    And a walk though time...

    Eric defies gravity as he floats above a bed of iron death.

    Eric departed for greener pastures.

    We found a deep spot in the river.

    The group split with about half returning the way we came and the rest taking the easier shorter route out BattleAx.

    BattleAx provides great views of the White Canyon Wilderness.

    Looks like an awesome day. I was out knocking around on the SE and thought y'all might be around for lunch.

    Beautiful day! Thanks for posting the pics.

    Next year I am in. hey Crilly how did the 250 L do? I would have let you try mine so you didn't have to buy one to check it out.

    nice rr guys. I tried, but failed to make this ride. tried to do too many things in one weekend, and just ran out of time to make the ride.

    camper trailor is in deer valley for the winter. where to this weekend. husky still not together so kilr is the main ride for another 2 or 3 weeks.

    I can't believe the little bike actually made it. :lol3 By the time we got to the downhill approaching Honda Hill I thought I'd have to walk back to the truck leaving the bike on the trail in pieces.

    I really can't say enough about this little bike but it's definitely not the right bike for this type of terrain. At least not in its completely stock form. But hey, even if I threw some money at it there's only so much you can do with a beastly 7 horsepower! :rofl

    Thanks again to everyone for a great ride.

    I couldn't contain my laughter every time I saw the 125 next to all the other bikes. :rofl

    [​IMG]

    I'm glad others found it just as amusing. :D

    The only time the beastly TTR was down for a nap was fortunately(sort of) when I got not one but two large cracks on my tank. :huh WTF is it with me and cracking tanks? Must be that my balls are too heavy. :wink:

    Waiting for the melee to clear from the infamous Honda Hill.

    [​IMG]

    Some high speed traffic.

    [​IMG]

    And then some congestion. :lol3

    We may need to modify David's name to Sleeper Dave although he did manage to somehow drain a perfectly good battery by the end of the day to keep his jumper legacy well and alive.
