Im game, and depending on the day... the wife may ride along on her bike.
The back way up to Jerome, then on to Sedona, Flag, back down on Lake Mary road into Payson and home to the valley is a great ride (all depending on weather :))

i'm only good for sundays. gotta fix the handlebars on the road king first though. if i ride the suzuki over 50 miles, my butt aches. my wife did 200 mi. on it with me once. that will be the only time she does that. it's definitely not a touring bike but it gets me to work. i would need it to be at least a couple weeks out. i can possibly make a saturday but not a guarentee [work].

i guess i'd better get to work on my handlebars.

i'm surprised there's not more interest in this ride. there are a lot of bikers on vjc. it's possible that some haven't signed up for off topic.

if you want more riders, maybe post this to the general forum. i mean, it's a club run, no reason it shouldn't be there. this will be the first vjc ride ever. it should probably even be a sticky in the general discussion forum.

i plan to go but the steelers are playing the giants that day. that should be a great game [maybe a superbowl preview]. it's an afternoon game so i may have to break off from the group and watch the game at a bar along the way.

So far we got 8 bikes for the 26 oct run. The back way to Jerome.

i got the bars fixed yesterday and a couple other little things so i'm good to go. i don't know the route at all but one thing to consider is, i get horrible gas mileage. i can only go about 125 mi comfortably per tank. i'll be bone dry in less than 150 mi. hopefully there will be some gas stations along the way.

Should be good from PHX to Congress mini-mart (~70 mi) where the group is gonna collect me, then again in Prescott area (~ 50 mi of curvy mountain road riding), then once we leave Jerome, Cottonwood (~75) or Camp Verde (~85), or Cordes Jct. (~ 95) prior to the ride south to PHX, depending on your preferences.

Note ALL miles are "guesstimates" and NOT measured on any maps... :)

its an 1100cc with a 3.5 gal tank

chopped7
10-14-2008, 09:37 AM
that tank looks huge. must be a lot of electronics and emissions crap up under it. my buddy's suzuki is the same. huge looking tank but only holds 3.5 gal.

my suzi thumper only holds 2.8. it's just a 650 but it's lucky to get 40mi per gal. usually less. i usually fill up around 75 mi. it's cool to ask for 5 bucks of gas though. i don't think 5 bucks would move the gauge on my truck.
