These are quoted from Johnny on page one........

DIRECTIONS TO THE PIT:

Take Bell Road West past the 303, (Bell Road turns into the Sun Valley Parkway) past MM 121, look for your first dirt road on your right and turn right, take this dirt road until you come to the Arizona Central Canal, go across bridge and make a quick left, take this road all the way down to the river bottom, there is a nice area to stage on your left or if your truck is 4WD you can cross the river bottom continue heading West to the PIT. The river bottom has some soft sand and I’ve seen several people get stuck with 2WD trucks when crossing. If you stage on the East side of the river bottom, drop into the river bottom and take road/trail West and you will run into the Pit.

I'm in Laveen, but always go to the east side at 4 peaks or Sycamore. Hassayampa is pretty cool, they have sand drags out there. They set up a light tree and everthing sometimes. The Drags just happen to be on my company's land (Rinker) which I am surprised they haven't tried to stop.

Cave Creek AZ here. RidePima and Dynamite most wekeends-
I found a very nice 42 mile loop that is a great mix of tight quad trails, mid to high speed trails, and of course the big wash. My last run was about 90 minutes.

This weekend I'm racing whiplash, so can't meet till the 24-25 Feb weekend.

There is an outside chance that I will have my quad repaired by then. I'll know for sure by Monday. If I get it repaired, I would like to a group out to the "PIT". I'll keep you guys posted on how the repair goes.

I did not know people moved to Yuma on purpose! At least you'll be close to the dunes.

It's actually called Crystal Beach. You can only get to the sandbar by boat. It's got sandy hills with gravel mixed in at the base. It makes for good riding in the winter but summertime is punishing on you and your bike. I take the kids and their rappy's there and they follow Amy and I in the Rhino. I'll get pics next time I'm out there.

My girlfriend and her parents are moving there and asked me if I wanted to come along. The first thing I plan on doing is registering my Raptor so I can have a new everuday driver. :grin_nod:

I am planning on staying in the business. Right now things are a little slow and I'm not doing a lot of marketing because I'm gearing up for the move. However, sometime in April or May I will be getting more inventory, updating the site and pushing to sell some stuff.

I know of the sand bar in the middle of the river. Is Crystal Beach accesible by road?

Crystal Beach is not really a beach at all; just big cliffs by the water. There are 3 main roads that run through the area.
