Imogene

As of two days ago, it was open up to the 3/4 mark from the Yankee boy basin side. Two plows parked at the point where glacial movement could prove risky due to the amount of snow still there. Lots...

Welcome!

I am taking delivery on a new V7 Racer and found a ton of info on Wildguzzi and Guzitech forums. Ride the bike for a while and do some research. Lots of good after market support out there.

Ouray county- if a ham sandwich has a vin number, it is good to go. Never a problem with my out of state street and dirt bike plating. They check the vin number and miles to match and all is well.

Read all of the DR forums

then they would have all the answers to the above question. No need to spend big bucks on market research. It is all there. Then they could pass the savings on to product development (and us!):rofl
