Riding is great here in Phoenix now :)

I saw a thread on a cover for our RC51's and thought why would anyone need to cover their bikes


I know I know I was born in Chicago and liven in Boston before I have the grand idea to move to Arizona. Never change out clocks and never need bike covers or ice scrapers lol......

Now if I can find a place to ride the KTM I will be all set

Not nice bro...

Some of us live in snow/rain belts and we have our down time, makes for a long down time usually. :'(

My question to you is are there a lot of good twisty roads out your way? Never been to Arizona but on my wish list.

I also lived in Seattle lol......the rides in the Phoenix metro suck dd. However there are some very cool places to ride up in the hills. I ride every day to work and thats a way for me to keep the bike active and me also.

It was gorgeous here today! Took the bike and my new suspension settings, a pen, and a notebook and spent the day tuning out the forks in the amazing mountain roads around cloudcroft, nm. Winter temps are coming though glad there's no/very little precip.

Funny but winter is an immediate transition. 70-80* and windy one day, 50* the next for the rest of the season.
