We plan to spend at least a couple weeks just East of Yuma in January. Anybody here who could lead me into trouble out there? I need at least gravel with two tire tracks and not much sand.

Strong folks required who can pick my bike up if we did not agree on what I am able to ride! Beer provided after we get back to civilization!

I thought @holligl went out there each winter. I know it's not the same place, but hey, it's Arizona, not a lot of bad places to ride.

I thought I had responded before, but not seeing it. We are east of Phoenix so it is a ways to Yuma. It would be easy to meet half ways a few times, or catch you coming/going. We will probably get there a week into the new year. My wife is talking about us flying onto Hawaii for a week towards the end of Jan. Personally the S10 is a great AZ bike, goes 90% of the places I want to go. I need something smaller for real technical stuff, due to my skill limitations.

Only ride occasional two up though..

Can't you bring both?

Native yuman here. I’m sorry, I’m a noob when it comes to technical riding. Bought the S10 for on road fun. Traded in an R1M. I don’t know how I’d be able to help, but hey.

Sounds like a good time to learn. It's probably better to ride off road with another rider, in case things go bad. But, I'm a pavement princess . . . . so what do I know?

You can find scenery and terrain off pavement that is the heart of AZ in my opinion. That's why I love on and off pavement riding there. The biggest issue is dealing with herds of side by sides. I do like riding with company for the added safety, as well as solo in areas where there is some traffic or at least cell service.
