Arizona - Phoenix to Prescott Ride

Saturday - February 23, 2002

Most of the group (few left early) at overlook on Hwy 89 near Yarnell AZ. This ride we had a great group of diverse bikes including 18 Vmaxes, an R1, a few GSXR1000's, couple of ZX9's, Ducati monster, Goldwing, Hayabusa, a Maxxim and a Virago, a couple more Hondas and a few more. Thanks to all who joined!

Drained the oil on the road and installed big bore kit to compensate for the added side-car weight.
