Today I just winged it. I don’t have a map of Arizona, and I don’t have any particular place to be. I just headed west based on the sun and hoped to find some good riding.
It didn’t take long.
I believe these were wild horses. The XR spooked ’em pretty good, they couldn’t run fast enough.
In the mountains west of Red Valley I went exploring for a good view.
I had to do a little hiking to get the money shot. It was more impressive in person. (The rock formation in the middle right is the same as the one a few pictures up.)
There’s lots of fantastic riding in the area.
I had to hit the slab from time to time, but it was scenic.
I wanted to drive in and check out Black Mountain up close, but opted to save time instead.
Get out of my way you stupid cows!!!
The riding was fast out by Pinon.
Shadows were starting to get long.
As the sun set the temperatures went with it.
I tucked in and cracked open the throttle to get out of dodge before it was too late. 8-9 hours on the bike today.
More to come . . . .
