Had a blast riding w Fano yesterday and Steve Kimball... Didn't realize so many folks were out in the west desert yesterday. Makes sense though - it was awesome...

Typical Fano fashion rode very fast and pretty hard, so hard there there was no time to take pics, particularly of all of the really really good stuff. Cherry creek is aaawesome... Particularly the rippin, tight single track. I felt like I was tree skiing! 140 miles total...

Here are a couple pics...

it was greasy and slick as snot in parts, Steve took possible the most dramatic, flailing, arms out/land on your back wipeout I've ever, seen luckily just into some greasy mud pit... Here's the aftermath:



towards the end of the night with the sun getting low. awesome, so cool to know that some of this awesome riding is so close...

^^^ Ryman: I'll take that as a compliment.

DCH: nice pics.


When i was headed home from the Knolls in the truck there was some dude on a Yamaha on the dirt road in Delle riding a wheelie and keeping up with freeway traffic, like 75 mph!

Saw a couple good sized groups of duals heading up Big Cottonwood yesterday (sunday) around 11am, I took my wife up to Silver Fork Lodge for some breakie on our motorcycle for our anniversary, it was a bit chilly at 9am but beautiful none the less.
Still need to get in on a group ride

I am glad you had fun on our Tour de Cherry Creek dieselcruserhead. We hit a little bit of everything what cc has to offer. Fast double track, tight single track, some sand, few hill climbs and couple of whoops.

Perfect CC season. Get it while it lasts. Soon all the north side stuff will be too wet and we will be stuck pounding through whoops.

Been a lurker of this site for awhile, first post ! lol

Anyways moved to SLC three years ago from Seattle with my Drz and just very surprised in regards to the lack of dual-sports in the area. Guess everyone has an atv, cooler, camo and shotguns instead...

Hoping to get a few more rides in before it starts snowing :)

This time of year park on cherry creek Rd. There is a lot of stuff in the low grass lands but also fun stuff in the mountains.

Here ya go park here head down to right after the cattle guard and there will be single track to the right. Its a little off but it will get you close. If you scroll down the Rd to the south you can zoom in and see single track leading all over.

At this time of the year before snow falls I like to park at Five mile pass so I don't have to drive too far and start riding from there to Eureka to gas up and from there on Chery Creek Rd

Awesome looking dog Kev! I love dogs, they're better people than we are. Especially some of us.... *cough, Pluric, cough, cough..*

Here's a few shots from the ride the other day - thought you might like to see 'em. Hope your fingers have thawed out!

So we started with a little of this: (and yes, I know the service light is on.... )



Then we ran into a little of this:


Then there was a little of this: (if you look really close you can just see GISKev in front of me there)



Then, there was some of this: (I don't have pice of the really heavy stuff for obvious reasons )


About then we realized it was this:



Then we got a glimpse of this: (notice the sign on the right - that will become important very soon )



This is why when you ride on the street, you always need to keep a little in reserve....:


And finally, just because I want to:



Thanks again for leading all day Kev - it was a good day!

So i have traded up from the old honda shadow to this beautiful BMW 1200 GS Adventure.

I am looking forward to getting it out there on the pavement for some long distance trips.

Maybe not elk-hunting, lol but for sure in the city and close outskirts compared to the Nw. I'm shocked when I actually see a D/S in the city.

I'm down for beer, just not that 3.2 crap :)
