It's that time of year again for the Devil's Cut in Springerville, Az. Weekend of September 18 - 20. Ride the old 666 Devil's Highway. Lots of curves with very little traffic. Meet in Springerville on Friday evening and plan rides for Saturday. Saturday night have pizza and share the days stories and there are always plenty. Sunday morning have a donut and head home.
Hotel info - Reed's Motor Lodge  514 E Main Springerville, AZ 85938  928-333-4323
Rooms range from $59 - $89.
For those coming in from the left coast, we are planning on meeting in Prescott on Thursday evening and ride to Springerville on Friday.
Hope you can make it. Dan

Hi David, We usually stay at the Days Inn 1290 White Spar Road. Prescott, AZ. Nice place to stay after a great run up the hill!  ;)

Hopefully we will go through Payson and Show Low for altitude and scenery.
A friend from Prescott that shows some interest in the ride has suggested the reverse loop for the 191 as he feels uphill is better due to the cantor of the road and doing the lower elevations first would be better for the heat.
As that I have never done this ride I am in no position to advise our organizers and will stay with the group thought  I should this mention this opinion from a seasoned rider that I respect.
Can't wait!

Hi David...yes we go through Show Low and Payson on the way to Springerville! Also the last two years our route on the Devil's Highway is always South to North or lower elevations to higher elevations! We do a run through New Mexico south then cross over to Clifton and Morenci and work our way back north on Highway 191back to Springerville! Just a great ride!

I personally like North to South down 191, but I am optimizing scenic viewing over speed.  I’ve been down it half a dozen times and i still love the view.

Just got home from 666 ride.
First time there.
Pretty hot in the lower climes, and lots of hot tar Snakes at the southern end.
No construction. Some "deer"..
Other wise... Wow!!!

Ride safe, Ted

Great right? I’m so excited. Gonna leave the DFW area early Friday and go through Deming then Silverton up 180 to Springerville. Always wanted to do 180 for a change. Should be a 900 mile day. Rock on! 😎👍🏼
900 - that’s a great day!

Just had the valves checked, spark plugs changed, coolant and oil changed and readjusted the throttle.
I think I am over excited about this trip!

We are going to get to Prescott in the afternoon, check in and take a ride out to the Yarnell Hotshots Memorial about an hour away. Great road riding out to it and a must stop if you're nearby.

I’m planning on leaving as soon as I get off work at 3:30pm on Thursday from Surprise, AZ. It’s about an hour ish from Yarnell and 2 from Prescott. Hopefully can coordinate with those that are riding to Yarnell and ride back up to Prescott in a group?

I‘m assuming we are at the Days Inn in Prescott. Is this right? When I called them they didn‘t know about a COG group.

I just booked the Days Inn on my own. How much more could it be? The way the tourist trade is hurting I don't feel bad letting the establishment make an extra $20 or so.
See you all in Prescott then off to Springerville!

Days Inn told me they would only discount 10% for the group and they gave that to me anyway. I was just making sure a last minute change of location had not been made. :)

Yes it is still Days Inn. Same thing they told me. 10% discount for a group but still would still give it to anyone who asked.

We are almost ready to head towards Prescott for the night. Got to get through Phoenix:confused:, onto Wickenburg and 93, and then to 89 and the home stretch into the Days Inn parking lot. Woot!

I had a blast. you're the man Dan!!!!
just one request. we need to call the people who do road maintenance before we get there next time and have them mow the weeds on the side of the road. .
I have been having this issue of getting into the weeds in some turns.
I got most out of the fairing...
It's been great to see everyone again and that ya'll stayed safe ....
