Drunk_uncle I am been to a couple I think in the beginning. Will be there with Dan Diego if plans don’t change. Won’t be on a KLR though. I have become a high roller!

Count me in, I live locally in Prescott, ride the area FS roads regulary , sound like a lot of fun!

campfire The wife and I are talking about upcoming trips and plans for the summer, and my nieces wedding comes up.
She asks me how many places I want to see in Washington DC when we're there. Still trying to figure out how long we're going to stay there that week..........

(light bulb moment)

Me- "Uh, honey? What day is the wedding?"
Her- "September 19th. Why? Did you forget?"

Me- "Are we sure the weddings still on?"
Her- "Whhhyyyyyyy?"
Me- "Uh, that's the ride. In Arizona.........the one I missed last year."
Her- "Well, guess you're missing this year too."

(strange silence for a time)

Her- "So you think you're going to miss your nieces wedding?"


It is with great sadness and regret that I must cancel my reservations for the ride this year.

So again, same as last year, I expect a good ride report.

19willys51 Riders should plan for steep and varying terrain, weather should be good, but always plan for odd showers as it is still monsoon season.

19willys51 This year's ride will be mostly Pines and Mines up in the Bradshaw Mountains. Several of them are pretty obscure. Two up should be doable for most of it, depending on what the monsoon season brings us this year. It'll be a nice time for desert dwellers to cool off. As usual, all bikes are welcome, as long as they're street legal. Bikes should be road and moderate off road capable. Riders without basic gear will be turned away. I keep swearing that I'll get a GPS in order to provide tracks, but just can't seem to do it. Friday night will be burgers and dogs or chili or something easy and quick, as riders arrive. Saturday evening BBQ/ fireside BS sessions will be worth the trip, by them selves. Always a great time with great people.

Hope you do come out for the event. The rides are always great and you will definitely see some of the more remote area sites. Plus I don't believe I have ever seen anyone go hungry after one of Jon's cookouts.
