New guy here. Just getting up top speed on this forum. Like many of you I am also a transplant from that "other site" so I'm glad I stumbled onto this ride announcement.

I had a great time in 2019 and will plan to swing by in 2020.

Take care,

DSchmidt

Does anyone have a good idea on the wording I could post to direct the interested riders to this site?

Without getting an immediate ban that is.
YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Initiate a post on .net, suggesting inmates click on this website's address: xxxxxxxx.xxx !

(A bit cryptic, perhaps, but . . . some readers of this website will "get it!")

8th Annual Northern AZ KLR Ride.

I love driving back to NAZ from KY with my wife. The drive really lets me disconnect from work. I lived in FLG for 7 years and for whatever reason, no matter where else I live it really feels like home.

This thread has me thinking.

Iím wondering if I could park my truck at a storage facility and then do this ride with my wife. Sounds like an amazing experience. Do you guys stay mostly on national forest roads?

Hmmmm....

That plan would work. Jon usually offers a couple different routes: Advanced and a bit easier.

I’ve attended 5 out of 7 (I think) of his rides and have documented them on my blog. Just search “Arizona” and you’ll get an idea of the terrain. Highly recommended!

Have any of the 'Longtimers' of this ride ever ridden the more 'Advanced' routes with a passenger?

A few passengers would not mind a 50-100 yard chance to stretch their legs, once or thrice a day.

A Quarter of a Mile or more might be asking too much!

Absolutely. Chuck B rode to the bottom of the Grand Canyon (5th Annual?) with his wife as a pillion.

Here's a link to a video of that ride that Captain Lago made.

Hanz, that route was on the Hualapai reservation, going down Diamond Creek rd. They normally do not allow motorcycles on that road but cars/pickups are okay. Jon got a special permit to allow us all to ride down and camp at the river. It really is worth the trip, bike or car as it is the only spot on the Grand Canyon that you can actually drive all the way to the river. Great views. Even living near, I tend to do it every year or two.

Good Grief, it's only February and I already have three different motorbike events slated for September. I am so glad that I am not camphosting this summer. Camphosting is fun but I am looking forward to being at some rides that I have not been able to do for a while.
