It's on! Devil's Cut Meet and Greet in Springerville Arizona. September 7th and 8th. Ride the Devil's Highway. (Formerly Hwy 666 now 191). Average high temperature in the upper 70s so riding will be great.
Ride is posted on the Calendar so sign up now.
Hotel info: Reed's Lodge 514 E Main St, Springerville, AZ 928-333-4323 www.k5reeds.com  Rooms $69.99 very clean and large. Many have 2 queen beds so rooms can be shared. Ponderosa rooms $79.99 little newer and in back against the grass sitting area. Make your reservations soon. You can cancel your reservation 24 hours before with no charge if you can't make it.
Jet Fixer (John) and I will probably go up on Thursday 9/6 to get some extra riding in if anybody else wants to go up early.  :motonoises: :beerchug:

I've signed up but I have some things that may crop up throughout September and October that I can't avoid so hopefully I can make it. Duty calls sometimes.

Mine will come as long there are some others. She didn't want to be the only responsible one there.

In.  Reservations made.

R&J are caging along as well.  That means there's cargo space for Buffalo Trace.

:)

We are leaving Thursday and heading to Page, AZ for the night (via Hurricane UT, Fredonia AZ, Jacob Lake AZ) then on down to Springerville on Friday through Flagstaff and Payson.

Saturday ride will likely be the loop:  Down US-191 to AZ/NM-79 over to US-180, back north to Alpine.

I was just wondering if I'd run into you (bang! :D) on my way to Page on Thursday or to Springerville on Friday.  I'm going north through Utah to Page, so I'll probably miss you there, but we might run into each other depending on how much wandering around you do on Friday.

On Friday for me it will be Page->Flag->Payson->Pinetop-Lakeside->detour to Big Lake->Eagar->Springerville

There's a tiny stretch of Butler Gold on 261 from Big Lake to Eagar.

This overnight part- is that camping or Motel stuff?
I'm old. I pay for a mattress, porcelain and AC. A coffee maker is a plus, an ice machine is required and a Jacuzzi or a pool is a 5 star Michelin rating. I'll camp if I have to. I don't have to.

Camping is fun!!! Though.... I would rather be like Mark and stay in a Motel with all the fun stuff that Mark called out! Plus a refrigerator is nice too!

You guy's call it. Your doing more miles than me. If'n ya wanna hang in the prescott/sonora ao Thursday night I can set it up. Then into Springerville Friday. You lemme know. That Bagdad road is a doer though. Great drops and rises through the arroyos and twists and turns. It's a roller coaster ride. Then a big blast with an altitude adjustment into Prescott. Great stuff. The run through to Show low looks like fun too.

I'm out on that option.  My plans have already been made for me to stay in Page on Thursday night, but I think you guys should go for it.

Old man, might be able to ride up Friday morning and meet you in Prescott and ride over to Payson with whoever shows up.
At least this is the way I assume you to be going, having trouble with google maps roads not showing unless zoomed in real close.

What time do you want to leave Prescott?
Anybody riding to Prescott with you?
I suggest (if you want to eat breakfast or lunch full menu anytime) Backburner family restaurant in Prescott Valley close to 89a the road to Jerome.
So take 89a thru Jerome to 260 thru Camp Verde to 87 to Payson, then pick up 260 to Springerville right at 250 miles.
If this sounds like a plan let me know, if you have other ideas lets hear them.
We can meet at your motel or the Backburner just let me know which one and what time as I have about 100 miles to get there the short way or 150 miles the fun way!

Sounds good to me. Hope to have a few So Cal folks along. Probably not to early. It's what about 4/5 hrs from Prescott to Springerville? Meet up at 9/10A? Get into Springerville around 3?
