Tried to search to find a simliar thread but couldn't find one. I know i can search the community and find members in arizona and message each and everyone one individually and see which ones are active but thats just excessive.

So who is in arizona? I would love to meet some similar minded people. All my friends (Exception Pendulum) thought i was crazy when i bought my POS XS650 that didn't run and needed nearly every piece replaced. It now runs and i would love to meet up with some locals to ride & help molest our 2 wheeled friends. So how about a check in for Arizona residents? This state is filled with a ridiculous amount of riders (however usually the 20k 20 mile type who ride that sweet spot 2 week part of the year), but I know there are a few of us that actually pretend we know how to work on our motorcycles occasionally. :)

So i'll start off;

My Name is Marin. I live in Mesa (but spend a lot of time in Peoria/Glendale as well). I had been wanting to build a bike / restore a bike for a while and Pendulum started pushing me by throwing ads on CL every for a good 2-3 months... Finally pullted the trigger on an absolutely disgusting XS650 that had literally almost NO functioning parts. However the engine ran perfect compression on both cylinders, and just leaked / cracked covers. I just got it running recently and have started to put weekend miles on it (until i fix oil leaks i dont want to daily it, too messy!). I have been taking it down the bush highway quite a bit but would'nt mind going some other spots, and meeting some locals to ride with!

I'm out in Queen Creek... Got a GS550 rat thing I've been working on. Just gotta sort my oil leaks out and build an exhaust, then it's time for the frame work to get done.

I know there's gotta be some CCers in the E. Valley.

Im down, text me your number and lets talk some times? I dont know PV as well and the tilted kilt isnt coming up on google yet. My bike is finally to the point im not questioning if it will start every time i kick it... so i would love to get out and be more social. :) Pendulum should have his bike running soon, just waiting for some gaskets to fix a severe oil leak, once he gets that i know he will be down to join in.

After we register, there is a Chuy's about a half mile down Cave Creek. Sleeves grills a mean burger too, so we could hang out on site too. The whole deal only runs 11-2, so its an early day.

The stuff they have here in New York turns to ash in my mouth. Hell the so-called "Mexican" restaurants here are all staffed by Chinese ppl. WHAT'S UP WITH THAT????

Canine, welcome to the valley. Don't worry about the summer heat, it's a dry heat.... I've lived here for thirty plus yrs, and I try not to ride during daylight hours between May 15th and late September. I'll be at the Ram Jet Racing thing on Sunday, riding my XS650 chop, maroon and black. P.S. I'm a friend of Bill W.

Yup, Heathen, that's what I was thinking. Peoples choice show, maybe, maybe not. That pos two-stroke winning Metric/British was totally uncool. The sporty class was tough, lots of great details on four bikes, then the nightwhatever won it. I'm calling B-S!

Got there early, got a seat off an Indian softail that'll work for the '84 for $25, a battery for $20, front tire, Dunlop 402F for $5, and a cool little spring assist knife for $10. Then I went inside and spent $70 on fluids, filter and gaskets. The guy that won kickstart class was there and we talked a little about the judging, consensus is "you never know what people are thinkin'..."

Good!

My fuckin' license plate mount fell off on Tuesday on my way home from work. Couldn't find it anywhere on my route home. So I'm currently missing a plate mount, plate, and tail/brake light. Thank God for my awesome girlfriend being able to take me to work.


I built this last night with my dremel and a cordless drill. No welder, no fancy pipe bender.

I'm going to build another one soon and I'll do a write up on it. Gonna wait until I have a drill press for the next one, though. Handheld drill in my lap = drill bits walked a bit so my holes aren't centered.

I think I might just be a tad retarded. Only time will tell.

Speaking of being retarded... I got pulled over right after we parted ways for speeding. He got me for no MC endorsement and my license plate too.

We need to do it again. Maybe more people will show up this time.

I might go. Not sure if I want to ride all that way, though. Call me what you want, but I might tow the bike to San Diego or LA and just ride from there. I did 280 miles on Sunday and was wore the fuck out. My little XS chop takes so much effort to ride on the freeway. I might buy a Dime City fairing for it. Or I could spend the money and get my GS back on the road. That things way better on the highway.

If we can get a group together, I'll try to go.

San Tan Valley is a long ways from Phoenix. About an hour. It's also about 30-45 minutes from anywhere with a substantial job market.
