I'll be heading up early on the 7th from Sierra Vista, AZ heading up Interstate 10 then getting on HWY 191 all the way up to Springerville and heading back early on the 9th.  If anyone wants to link up on the way up please let me know. 

Looking forward to finally meeting everyone!

I take it you didn't sell the bike then. I'm going up thru Globe but going up on Thursday. See you up there.

PJ's in Clifton isn't bad

Thanks. Was going to ask if there a restaurant around Clifton or Morenci that was large enough to hold around 20. Depending on the time it takes us to do the loop we can have lunch there or if it's too early, then in Alpine.

Nothing in Morenci based on last time through. Clifton had a couple spots. What are everyone's plans? Clockwise our counter? Gonna be a great ride.

Thinking clockwise and lunch in Clifton. If it's too early then lunch in Alpine. After that back up towards Springerville and those that want to ride some more, head west on the 260. That's where I saw the Bighorn. Nice riding around the Snowbowl ski area.

While sitting around bench racing at the motel maybe we could discuss the upcoming ride in the hills outside of San Diego and see who’s interested in planning something good and set a date. Is that a bueno idea ??

For the following ride we could start at Angeles Crest Highway and go through Arrowhead, Big Bear, across 10 to Idylwild, Over to Palomar, down and over to Montezuma for lunch, up Banner Grade to Julian and up to Mt Laguna down to 8 and then down to Cuyamaca and back to Julian, back down Banner and back over to Borrego or wherever we would spend the night. If Borrego is the spot to say we could make reservations early for the motel called Stanlunds Inn or just end up wherever you guys choose. That’ll make for one excellent long ride and include 1.7 billion corners! Whatever you all choose works for me too though. Game for whatever. Time to do a group message and come up with ideas beyond that.

Whatever Rusty Russ wants to do as far as meet up. Already have room booked in Prescott so anything prior to that sounds like fun regardless. I’ll call that man and get the scoop.

Had 7 people back out for various different reasons.  Wasn't happy essentially giving the bike away so decided to hang onto it a bit longer.  :mad:

Still enjoy her when I do take her out just have to watch out for the other knuckle heads out there.  See you soon!  :)

With the party happening in Priskitt Thursday , John and I might just be heading that way. We were going to head to Springerville to get things ready, mints on the pillows, name tags on the blow up dolls, etc but figured you might be able to use a couple of escorts across Northern AZ. :-[

Me likey.  Now as far as escorts this happened once before so word to the newbs. When the blue and red lights come on (in front of you) proceed at minimum 1 mile further then gather at a safe spot until safe to proceed. But then Charby and Jetfixer have an in with the locals. They may be just sayin' hi.  ;) :beerchug: :)) :))

I've got a plan for those leaving from So. Cal. and it may or not work for some. I was talking to Russ about riding out with a few people Thursday morning and we live in Mission Viejo.
7am dept. Mission Viejo (5)south to (78)
9am arr. Julian for breakfast at Granny's Kitchen & gas
Ride through Anza Borrgo to Quartzsite (10)Lunch & gas
Ride to Prescott (60) (71)
Just an idea, but I think this would be a fun start for the ride and look forward to meeting everyone.

If the plan is solid for 9 am at granny’s I think I’ll just meet you guys there. Also bringing another friend on his Blackbird unless something changes. Looks like he’s going to spend some quality time sleeping on the floor 😊

If you guy's make that run through Borrego hit the box canyon east from Mecca takes you to the 10. Short run but a sweet piece of road. Watch for the sand in the corners.

Where did you get rooms in Prescott? If I go there Thursday I can get a room with 2 beds if someone needs to share a room there too.

Ha!  Sounds like I'm taking a similar route to y'all, but in reverse.

Thurs:  Pahrump -> St. George -> Jacob Lake -> Page
Fri:  Page -> Payson -> Big Lake loop -> Springerville

Sun: Springerville -> Priskitt (is that like Wista, Mass.?  ;D)
Mon:  Priskitt -> Skull Valley -> Kingman -> Pahrump

Looking forward to seeing everyone Friday night and Saturday.  All you fast guys wave to me if you pass me between Payson and Springerville. :motonoises:

Anyone travelling at night in Northern AZ  watch out for elk. They like to stand in the middle of the road and guess what that light is approaching them. :-\

Thank you Dan for getting this great ride event going. 191 by far one of the best roads. I had a blast. Did 1100 miles total.  up and down 191  and mule creek pass yesterday and went 191 south again this morning, over mule creek pass then 180 up north going home. Thanks again and it is always great to see you all and hang with a bunch of great guys that share the same passion for twisties.

I must concur (concourier?). It was so great seeing everyone amongst great roads and attractions. I do believe we had every State except HI represented. The interest is there. The participation is there. The fun is there. Who will be next to step up and say "I have some great roads and lodging that is worthy of these wonderful people". Let's have a grand time. Many thanks go to Charby and Jetfixer for laying the groundwork. Awesome event. Who will be next to step up? I heard a few great suggestions over the weekend. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.........

OMC, Russ, Atilla...    Sorry I missed you guys. I was really looking forward to this. Also looking forward to meeting some new people. 
Can you believe it!  Two weeks before the event I do a recon ride to check out hotels, restaurants, and road conditions.  Report said info to the main man Charby.  All systems go and ready to rock.  :great: :great:
Two days before the event and I get sick as a dog!  WTH!!  :mad:

Oh well.  Whatrya gonna do.  I’m glad you all had a good time.  I definitely wanted to be there. 
Next time!!

I will however make up for some of it as I leave on the 21st for a six week journey across the country, with very few set planes or schedule.  :motonoises: :motonoises:  (Supject to some adjustments depending on how hurricane Florence decides how and where to make land fall).

Great job setting this up Dan!    :great:  I’m really sorry I missed out.

100% agree and can’t wait for the next one. Charby is a cool dude and lots of good riders in our area make it all the more fun. Pretty sure he got the number of the flat tire lady too- smoooooth!
