Tucson to Tombstone

  • June 4, 2012 2:56 AM PDT
    Hey guys,
    I'm planning a run with some friends from Tucson to Tombstone and back on July 14th. Anybody who can make it is welcome to join. I know its not a long run (for you experienced bikers) but, it will be the longest run I've ever done. Gotta start somewhere huh. Just let me know if your interested and I'll give you the details.

    I would love to join you but can't make it that weekend. I will be in AZ a couple of weeks after that for the Too Broke for Sturgis Rally in Flagstaff.

    Did that run back in 09... We started out from Phoenix and man the 10 was rougher than a covered wagon with a busted wheel pulled by a bow-legged mule! Have fun though, that's a fantastic trip!

    I would love to but being on the east coast right now it a little tough. But the last time I was out that way I did a similar run. It was Green Valley to Tombstone one of the many nice rides I have while I was out there. Skipped 10 altogether.

    Can't wait to get back out that way. Thank for bring back some good memories.

    I loved riding in AZ when I lived there....took the ride from Tucson to Tombstone several times. Nice ride, wish I could make it down there this summer.

    It was a great time. We rode through the AZ "wine country" and took the back roads. It was awesome.

    Use to do this all the time. Sierra Vista, Tombstone, Bisbee, back to Sierra Vista. Then I'd go Tucson to Superior. That's a nice one too. Be sure to ride out to the Rattle Snake Ranch, between Tombstone and Bisbee, out by Gleeson the Ghost town. If your not scared of getting bike dusty.
