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

OK, here's the thing. My subscription is still valid over at .NET until the end of the month.
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!")

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.

I’m 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....

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!

Man, that sounds like a dream come true. That’s what my wife and I need. Is that access on the Havasupai res?
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.

Sounds like a great ride.....I've never been in that part of AZ either.
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.

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.

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

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?"

:surprise:

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?"

Me-




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

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

September 18-20 Based from the Gunsite campground in Paulden AZ, north of Prescott. Good times had by all. BBQ on Friday and Saturday nights. Good riding and even better company. Usually have somewhere around 20 riders. All ADV style bikes welcome but ride only advertised on KLR pages.
Count me in, I live locally in Prescott, ride the area FS roads regulary , sound like a lot of fun!

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!
