    Nuclieye put a ride together today, Phoenix to Kirkland Junction to Crown King and back to Phoenix. Sounded interesting enough to get me out of bed and on the road in time for the 7:00 AM rendezvous at the Waffle House.

    5 riders total started the day:

    Nuclieye - KLR 650
    DR650Eddy - DR650
    Nightstalker - KTM950
    Dannn - Ducati Multistrada
    Louis - Weestrom

    Nobody told me there would be dancing. I would have ridden the Multistrada in deeper into the dirt if I knew there'd be dancing! I'm impressed!:rayof

    I gotta get me some of those bumpy tires.

    Great to meet you guys.

    BTW, Louis has the big Strom

    Its just not an adventure ride with the Ducati Multistrada 1100S... I hear they had a good ride also after breaking off from the group.

    We should try the Peck trail sometime after summer cools off a little. Maybe I'll have my 990 by then...

    Crossing the Hassayampa River, the easy way.

    [​IMG]

    I didn't get a picture, but I went down and crossed it the hard way too. This was pretty much the end of the road for Dan and Louis. Once the road turned back to dust, they returned the way we came and pursued other adventures.

    We split off Wagoner Road to check on one of Nuclieye's Mine Claims. Not exactly a road, just follow the water.

    [​IMG]

    We chilled out for a bit and enjoyed the solitude.

    From there, Fredo headed back to Prescott; Nuclieye, Eddy, and I headed back to Phoenix via Cleator and Bumblebee.

    203 miles for me today. Sure glad I got up this morning.
