Carla needed a gallon of distilled water, being the nice wonderful husband I am, :sick:, I volunteered to go get it for her, of course had to take the bike. Was a tad warm at 90 degrees but not to bad. After a search for the 4H scavenger hunt target I was ready to head out. This retirement thing and getting to go for rides like this is really nice.


I'm still getting used to this dirt road thing.

No cool pics, but I did have an encounter with a big Blue Herring riding through the swamp @ 45 MPH……………He crapped all over the right side of the bike on impact & left a feather in my rear brake pedal. Me & the bike survived the impact but he did not, feathers 🪶 flying & he rolled off the right side of my windshield

I hope you mean a Heron (bird), not a Herring (fish). :)

Hitting a Herring would add a whole new level of difficulty to this event.

Actually that's the River, Salt River, it's in the Lake area though. Saguaro Lake i didn't visit today, rode by it. I often say "i'm riding up to the Lake" but actually don't go to the Lake, but its right there. ;):)

They can control how much water that River gets via a series of Dams up stream, in fact they can control the Saguaro lake levels. Its all man-made. Roosevelt Dam is the main Dam.

@Yamaha Pat you have to get speakers and play motorcycle muffler sound. That is so strange not to hear that on a bike, cool as it my be just odd hearing the suspension and your breathing. Hehehe.
And it still freaks me out when you CA folks splits lanes and move up to the head of the pack….
Thanks for sharing….

Pat, nice ride. Question, what is this sign that appears to be almost in the middle of the road?
