Damn. I should have remembered that term. The way you say it makes it sound borderline illegal.

I guess it would depend on the age or mammal catagory you are riding.

This'd be a good time to take the highway on the west side of the valley, from Sage Cr. Jcn (north of Randolf) to Cokeville. Cuts off ~ 5 miles, but with a lower speed limit.

I like the Bear Town restaurant, just E of the jcn of US189 and Wy89. Prime rib on Fri and Sat is good. And they serve beer and wine.

I'll join for part of it if it's Saturday morning. If the weather is really nice Friday, who knows, maybe I'll take the day off and go anyway. I can't ride for too long but that's better than nothing.

PET gpx?

Does anyone have the Pony Express Trail gpx that could email it to me utahkev@gmail.com ? The route that I did w/ Trackhead deviated from the traditional route quite a bit. I think I'll be doing the PET on Friday am if anyone wants to come.

Does anyone know if any other KTM model rear shock wrenches for adjusting the preload collar will work on the 2008 690E?

Lake Creek Road has shiny new blacktop on it all the way up to the forest boundary. And I discovered yesterday that currant creek road is mostly paved now too. Holy crap when did that happen? I guess I haven't been down that way in a while. -al

Yup.

Also ran into the paving crew at Strawberry today as well. They are paving Guardsman all the way up. Good thing the Red state of UT won't take any of the Federal stimulus money! We'll show'em!
