Motorcycle Along the Bush Hwy NE of Phoenix AZ

Posted in Arizona, Cactus, Motorcycle, Motorcycle Rides, Motorcycles, Superstition Mountains AZ on August 28, 2012 by DRF

I took a short 40 mile ride along the Bush Highway NE of Phoenix AZ today in this 100 degree plus weather.  I sure am looking forward to summer being over.  I prefer to ride when the temperatures are in the 70’s and 80’s.  Anyway, I stopped a few times to get some desert photos.  It’s still a little early for the desert flowers to start blooming, but when they do, it’ll make for some nice photos.

I went over to the Desert Botanical Gardens today in Phoenix.  Here’s a few photos.  Not much is blooming this time of year, so I got some “wildlife” photos as well!

Arizona Blue Sky and Green Cactus – Red Mountain Ranch

Posted in Arizona, Cactus, Lakes, Motorcycle, Motorcycles, Yamaha on February 7, 2012 by DRF

I took a ride today on the Yamaha Raider since I haven’t ridden it in quite a while.  It’s been sitting in the garage too long connected to the battery tender.  I stopped here at the entrance to Red Mountain Ranch housing community, in Mesa, Arizona.  It seemed like a nice place with some green grass and a little blue sky for a photo.  I try to always keep my camera with me when I ride.  You never know when a nice photo opportunity will show up!

This sign on the mountain points the way to Phoenix Arizona.  Referred to as “The Phoenix Letters”, they’re located in East Mesa, West of Usury Pass Road and North of McKellips Road.
