    Glad no one took me up on the ride.
    I ended up getting a flat.
    Can't really complain though, the mx ultra duties are 1year and 5 months old have been used with ride on tube sealer and 2-3 sets of tires .
    First flat. Time for new ones.

    Recommendations for where my friend can take his Ducati Monster 750 in town for a general tuneup and lookover? Had an axle nut come off and things got really squirrely. Been parked awhile. Also recommendations for tank dent repair and seat upholstery?
    Thanks in advance.

    I think On Any Moto would be the only game in town for that bike.

    I had very high hopes for OAM, and had a great purchase experience with them. Sadly, all they are interested in, now that one of their original principals left (and all their original mechanics), is making a buck. Their big push is currently Korean side x sides. Bikes are an afterthought. After a bad service experience, I'm going back to GoAZ, it is worth the trip to me. Of course, YMMV, but I'm done with them.

    I have no experience with them. Just don’t know of anyone else local for Duc’s. In hindsight, my bud here Tucson takes his Multi to GoAZ as well.

    I take my Ducati to GoAZ as well, the one in Scottsdale has great mechanics.

    I don't know if the shop down in Vail is still going, but they could possibly do a good job. I can't think of the name, but they do car shows and have a retro diner etc. on the north side of the 10, and I forget the road. Only been there once, maybe someone else can remember the name an exactly where. I think it may be called Hotrods?

    Got out with another inmate yesterday (10-31-20)
    Basically one if the same loops with a bonus in/out on a ranch between Redington and Mammoth that only seems to be accessible during hunting season.
    The last two pics are off Freeman Rd looking back towards the ranch area.

    Any kind you want, any time of year you want. Where are you coming from?

    Edit: I see you're in NV. Similar weather, riding, etc. UTBDR, NVBDR, AZBDR come to mind, but there's a whole lot of open desert out there. Bunch of restricted desert as well.
