Just heard about this and I’m looking forward to it. It’ll be close to a Saddle Sore ride. 850 miles from Dallas/ FtW Friday, “conservative hooliganism” Saturday and then 850 back Sunday. Anyone from DFW want to go? I’ll be starting the high speed burn to Az. at 5:30am Friday. Whoo-Hoo!

And for those coming in from the left coast looks like we'll be meeting in Prescott again on Thursday and riding to Springerville on Friday.
Where ever your coming from post it on and hopefully you can meet up with others and ride in together.
Last year we had six states represented.

Got me a room in Springerville for Devil's Cut 2019.

2018 was awesome. Don't miss this Southwesters (and other regions too).

Be riding in from central Cali - Thinking maybe start on Wednesday going over a pass in the Sierras (108 or 120) then down (cause I DON'T want to see Barstow and Needles again - 7 times each last year) - Then Thursday to Pressie - Friday with the gang to Springerville

I'm gonna look at the place some of us stayed last time in Prescott. Easy staggering distance to eats. Cool rooms. May have to tryout the tandem bike this time (is Barbenal going?). Convince me different. I'm easy. If I remember they did have a hidden cabin that sleeps 6 to 8 if'n such a group of cats can be herded.

Does anybody have a link to the cog registration for this ride? I booked my room today. I’m so excited already. I’m sure I’ll get over it at mile 700 on the way back. 😂

A link to lodging in Prescott. I have not contacted them yet for a discount so stand by. We are a repeat so I would expect generosity. I think we were pretty well mannered but the memory is a bit fuzzy. Had something to do with vodka shot's. http://themotorlodge.com/

It's a Meet and Greet so no registration. On Saturday night we'll most likely all pitch in and get pizza, beverages and sit around telling stories.

Hopefully the SWAD can take care of the pizza and possibly beverage costs!  :)

Reg is not req'd but the more that reg gives Charby some bragging rights and also helps to plan so if you can please do. It also gives Russ some bragging rights when reporting in the Concourier. Helps to pump the SW area. When folks on the fence see 50 reg they think they are missing something (because they are). As well as forum and FB posts. Helps drive participation (which we all know is the main driver of getting out and meeting folks right?) Gonna be a hoot as always. C U there.

And it's only the 1st set of curves on the Devil's Hwy
devils-hwy-curve-sign.jpg

You see this sign just out of Morenci AZ, near the huge mine, as your just starting northbound up the Devils Hwy (formally Hwy 666)
https://goo.gl/maps/9XbGhvZQVdSPehsG6

You do 25 miles of curves - about a 1 mile straight - and then the next 25 miles of curves start.

Don't Miss This Ride!

The travel time stamp on the route map looks like the ride is down the mountain to Clifton with a return thru New Mex. Is the ride on 666 going to be up the hill from Clifton instead.

The map on the COG Information and Registration page
http://www.cog-online.org/ClubPortal/EventDetailPublic2.cfm?clubID=1328&eventID=257952
is just to give peoples an idea of the overall route and locations. It isn't meant to be 100% accurate  or indicate direction of the loop or times.

Don't know if it's been decided what direction the loop will be this year. (I know it's been discussed though)

(And the pic is just a pic - not indication of anything other than - lots of curves)

There will most likely be a few different groups riding that day. There's at least four of us riding two up so possibly we will ride together. There's always the spirited group and those that want to ride a little more leisurely. Friday night we can all get together and see who wants to ride with who. Probably gonna be 40+ of us there so I'm sure there will be plenty of options. I'll post more info in the next few days on what's going on.

The Mexican place across from the motel in Prescott is really good. And as far as wives go I suspect most will ask to ride with me at some point but I’ve already decided to tell them no just to keep the peace. 😂 MEX place also has a full bar so no need to travel.. This one is going to be a riot again although I guess it will be at a far slower pace.

I already explained your saddle to the counterweight. She tapped out. Sand bags to even the field are allowed. Stacked High and wide. I got duct tape.

Sadly this is the weekend I'll be picking the Connie up from getting a boob paint job in Oregon. Don't think I'll be able to make it in time. Haha. Ride well!

Two more weeks! Here's some more info.
Friday - Dinner your choice since everyone is arriving at different times. There's Booga Red's right across the street or other places around town. Looks like there might be close to 50 of us so probably be different groups riding on Saturday. The spirited group, 2up, sightseers. We can discuss Friday night. I'm in room 3, but most likely be in grassy area in middle of motel. Kickstands probably up around 9am. I'll have donuts or you can get breakfast.
Saturday evening get pizza and drinks and sit around telling stories. That's a blast! Reed's does sell Devil's Highway tshirts.  Will ship if they don't have on hand what you want. See ya soon.

Do be careful of elk in the evening. Plenty of them in the area. These have been spotted in the area. Troy Archer has done some research and this is the rare Mountain Berry Pie Elk. Looks are deceiving, this animal is very fast. Spot one and it'll be gone in a 'flash'!

Bike is prepped and I’m ready to battle at the Isle Of Springerville. Charby is buying dinner for the winner!
 
More like 93 miles of great road with almost no traffic. I first rode it from Alpine to the Morenci mine last year, and enjoyed it so much that I went back and rode it the other way last month. Running north keeps the sun out of your eyes for the most part. Maybe not on those 10 mph switchbacks where you can almost see your own taillights. A great ride, one of my favorite!

They'll be much increased traffic as its the start of elk season, be plenty of hunters out cruising on quads,4x4's,sidexsides,etc, pulling out on roadway from trails an twotracks. stay alert.
