Hey, I ain't forgot youz guyz.

Doing more exploration around Camp Verde. This place has some very challenging trails. Lots of large embedded rocks And some steep climbs. So far I've mapped out a couple of 70ish - 80ish mile loops. Some very hard, Some easy (by AZ standards). Some pics attached from some of the hard ones.

The local bike shop recommended the Sedona MX907HP as a rear tire. This thing is amazing, trials tire type traction in the rocks. 

I do miss riding Anza Borrego now and then. May be staying at a friends place in Ocotillo Wells in January. No dates yet.

Having fun in the Zone.

Volcanic black ,,,  Not seeing any Smooth sand.  👀

So,, do you run the suspension soft, or hard? Ever get out of 3rd gear?

Suspension is set to "comfort". I'm told that is the preferred setting for the more elderly riders.

Rarely hit 3rd, mostly 1st and 2nd. Sand is rare.

A guy up in Flagstaff has "the" setup for riding rocks. Will get his mods next suspension service. https://www.7kmachine.com/

He's a member of Coconino Trail Riders, as am I, based on your advice Dave. Awesome club. Thanks.

Amgems,

Do you have a 300 on the Short List yet. 

   :dirol:

Now see.....This makes perfect sense. I'll send you my wife's phone number. You have a way of talking to people that is very convincing.

Not yet, not yet! But.......Here is a video of a ride we did Sunday. Quality goes to hell on YouTube, but it gives an idea of the stuff out here. This is the easiest loop I have so far. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKNC3hOHPF8

Thanks for Posting the pre-view. Good to see you have a few riding buddies to replace your Old buddies. That looks like tough duty there in the rocks. Are Arizona riders tougher than California riders. No need to answer that question, I volunteer to be a soft rider. 

Keep Up the good work.  Dave L.

Jim and I will scout out the terrain between Bullhead and Camp Verde in the coming years...…..and invite the crew over to ride...…..

Likewise, I'll likely start the "Crawdaddy Invitational" back up in November 2020 out in Bullhead...…..I'll have a variety of routes to cater to all......

You guys cannot be replaced. I have new friends in addition to my old friends. I have to stop now.... I'm tearing up.
