Moab riding

Just got back today. Went to the visitor center on day one and was told a plated/insured bike needed no UT sticker. Not plated, required.

ear plugs

Hearing loss is cumulative. Once it's gone, it's gone for good. It is such a habit to use them that I never forget to put them in. I find the inexpensive foam ones work great both on the bike and the...

Another plus for Montrose. I live just south between Montrose and Ridgway. Best riding in the state, on and off road. Moab not too far west.
