Are people riding out there already? It's going to be blazing hot. I'm sure the sand will be nice and smooth though.

Shoot, here in the Phoenix area it's going to be close to 100 degrees. I'm sure Yuma will be a little hotter. We plan on going up to Glamis within the next 3 weeks thow. Hopefully it'll be a little cooler by then.

Next tome you guys go send me a P.M. and I'll meet you up there. I may just go for the day until it cools off or until our Oct.22 date but I'll definately meet up with you if you decide to go sooner.

trxjwb, it was great, it wasnt too hot there was at least 15 camp sites, who does your work for you, how do you like the sparks cam, are you doing a port/polish or just the titanium valves?

I'm probably going to head out for the day next weekend on my friends 450. I've been wanting to go but I was worried about being the only one out there. Sounds perfect with only 15 or so campsites.

04450, yeah Im doing titanium intake valves and port/polishing, but milder porting.
Im having a guy down here in yuma do it, hes been a motorcycle mechanic for like 30 years, he know his stuff, I cant wait to try it out on Sunday, if my valves come in on time!

I love my sparks setup, it flat out rips, my brother and I have the same setup, exept he doesnt know Im doing the valves, we have beat every Yfz out there yet. He is a 30 lbs lighter so gets me sometimes on the top end, hopefully the the titanium valves will give me an advantage

Buttercups will be pretty crowded that weekend, but so will Glamis, and Gordons Well. I have been going to Buttercups for a long time, I just feel comfortable there, and I will be there that weekend as well.

Oh you can have a campfire!

Hows Tucson by the way, I from there, but never lived there, my family from both sides lives there. My dad was a marine so you know the routine.

I have done alot of Hunting on the outskirts of Tucson, good stuff!

Never hunted.

Tucson is growing fast, it use to be peaceful, now it getting stressful, it still beets Caiifornia by a long shot.

Maybe I'll see ya Thanksgiving.

Does anyone have pic of Buttercup??, When I went to Salton Sea this past weekend we pasted Gordon Well, I must of missed Buttercup somewhere, where was it??.

BTW dont ever go to Salton Sea unless you like to smell Sulfer, its a very bad place to ride period.

Thanks,

If you were are on the I-8 freeway heading west the first set of dunes you saw on the left side of the Freeway were Buttercups, did you see the Rest Area in the middle of the Freeway, its on the south side of the freeway.

Gordons well is about another 2 miles down the road, the 1st bridge you see turn right make another right and follow that road and it leads to a dirt road, just keep on keeping on and your there
