    We met similar signs around Kofa Mountain wild life refuge. So close to the proving ground.

    Sounds good. Since I'm gone this weekend anyway, let's see if we have anyone else that wants to join and I'll start a group conversation for the weekend if the 29th/1st.

    Yes, it's the Arizona Trail Riders. Primary for small bike, singletrack stuff, but a few of us have adventure bikes as well. Main focus is 500cc and less with a few BRP rides thrown in. Good group of guys.

    I live off Lake Pleasant and Happy Valley and ride occasionally. I have an Africa twin and know a few of the trails up to Crown King and the surrounding areas.

    mykdee - nice looking XRL! I'm on the westside also ( I17 at Cactus ), it's good to have another 650L out here in the west! Looks like there was some military time in your past... Good on you sir!

    I would be interested in a ride Saturday, especially if it is close and not too far. I am waiting for my desert tank, factory tank is small and I cant get too far without a gas station close by!!
