Friend didn't bring over new lighter faster machine so i rode the 600 triple and didn't get in any trouble.Actually had a lot of fun ,rode about 50 miles on the old polaris 600 indy.I had forgotten how much power this machine has.Nothing beats cubic horsepower.Had a slight head cold but went anyway,woke up today sore and still sniffley.Cant wait for the lighter artic cat.Snow has not melted up high and is 2 feet deep and still powdery.Looks like a good season so far and maybe we'll get more moisture.I don't like it when the spring gets here and the f.s. closes the mountains because of fire danger.

Snow machines one day, motorcycles the next. You are living the dream mister.

Aside from Red Sands, what other desert riding is in that area? I'm always thinking of places to retire. On my list are Grand Junction and Silver City.

Yes ,it is nice to be able to ride snow and ride desert in the same day.Sometimes  I want to have a machine that does both without goin back to the house and switch.The reason i quit ridin personal watercraft is when i was ridin it it was impossibe to boondock it out of water.Desert area is below Pinion,n.m. all the way to dell city ,Tx.. If you ever get the chance ,ride the salt flats east and south of dell city.

Rode 60 miles on klx450 to test seat concepts wide cover and foam.Excellent seat for the money.Came back home and decided to take the 200 xr on the same ride. Took a little longer but it was just as much fun.These warm afternoons really make you want to ride!

Took my 200 for a short ride sunday and ran into my neighbor who wanted to go to timberon.we rode up to sunspot after leavin mayhill and 65 degrees.It was 37 by my temp gauge when we got[turn on hand heaters ] ;) there and we decided to go on down to timberon. 15 miles later at timberon we got to the station and had a full pot of coffee at timberon store, balmy 55 degrees.We warmed up and continued on to pinion ,58 degrees. We then rode to chimney lake  and on to mayhill.we left at 1:30 pm and arrived home at 4:45 , 99.0 miles.sure is nice bein able to reach such heights and lower altitudes  in such a short ride. :) 25 miles paved and the rest dirt and gravel

enjoyed the videos of the trails in the mountains,all the trails you rode on are east of sunspot hwy.all these trails are 4 wheeler ok,dammit.The only trails left for m/c only is the entire length [33 miles ] of rimtrail105.I ride the entire length every spring just to see if i can.Used to have a gang do this ,but for some reason they have dwindled down to me.last spring took me 5 hrs to do the mileage,

My family has ridden in the area in late July for the last six years but we still haven't made it past the first ten miles or so of the Rim Trail, sure would like to ride the length of it.  My group isn't interested, maybe I could hook up with someone that is.

We'll be back the last week of July 2015.

Welcome to the site.

I think I might have to ban myself from the 105 unless I ride it over several days.

It sure is fun though.
