    Is this a pic of the hill leaving the cabin? I haven't seen it yet but I've been close twice. Oh, you didn't happen to see a pair of sunglasses laying on the side of the trail, did you?

    This one is taken around the halfway point on the way to the cabin from the sign that says you're in an OHV area. The hill leading to the cabin was significantly rockier and steeper to the point that I didn't want to risk stopping for pictures.
    Oh, and nope no glasses.

    You pick the best trails. I wish I could join you, but I promised a friend I'd help him move.

    Before I take these to recycling figured I’d offer them up here. Need them gone.

    Dunlop Geomax AT81 Reinforced Carcass desert rears 120/90-18 and AT81F fronts 90/90-21. Rears have one race and two practices and front have 2 races and 4 practices.

    Need someone to take them all. 5-sets

    The answer is NO, FREAKING NO, Union Pacific has it impossible to get back there from the North. Can you still get there from the South or the East? Been a while since I been out there (before they built the new Marsh Station interchange).

    Go in at the STL access where the AZBDR used to meet interstate 10, then head south.

    Is that the gate right off the highway that heads uphill a couple miles East of Marsh Station? Obviously can't stage there.

    Dibs again! I hear that my xr650r is notorious for eating up rears.
    You've been kind enough to pass these tires on to me before and I got great mileage out of them, so if someone else is interested that's fine, but I'll nab em if not!

    You can get in from 83/i10 taking the gasline roads(which are a blast imo).

    Thanks Dawg, we need to ride again, been a long time. I agree the gas line is GREAT...I really like that one running North and South to the mine.

    Ok. Sounds good. I’ll throw them in my truck Tuesday and we’ll fix a spot to meet. If you want them before then let me know and we can meet up. Thanks.

    Ditto! Though the east west one cutting up and down along i10 is a blast as well, punctuated with obligatory gates to slow things down.

    I could do with a day or weekend exploring LCNP and empire ranch. What are you riding now HTM?
    Tuesday is great.

    Thanks, really love it...

    Gadsden Coffee, Cafe Aribac in Arivaca is a little oasis on one of the few genuinely twisty ribbons of tarmac in southern AZ. Always a place to get some decent food, good coffee, shade and conversation. It will be missed...and hopefully will rise again... :photog

    Yeah. Can get there via street or dirt. Always a good place to stop for a rest... I recall a day about 3 years ago where I stopped, got lunch, had some good conversations, then slabbed the dirt bike back to three points, loaded the bike in the truck, and drove to the VA hospital to confirm 8 broken ribs . Had a bad dirt nap in the rocks up in the mountains. That sucked. But still went to Gadsden first
