An analogy I like about bikes is that they are like golf clubs, you need a bunch of different ones to excel at the task at hand. Makes perfect sense to have something for crossing the country well, something for blasting up the local mountain, a dedicated dirt machine, a dual sport, a classic (notice no mention of a cruiser). But if they just sit well it might be time to move em out. Plus a trials bike, an enduro, a drag bike, a representative of each brand, a replica of one you had as a kid........................

The only dunes in CO of significance are the Great Sand Dunes, and those are closed to OHV.

I've been invited to join a group headed to Little Sahara / Sand Mountain in Utah this spring. I'm seriously tempted.

8 or 10 paddles on the 300? I think 10 is the way to go.

When I lived in the San Luis Valley, we would get some good dunes in the spring on the county road! Walden is fun, White Wash Dunes are also good south of Green River Utah. Then the ones North of Rock Springs, Killpecker dunes are a blast!

Tiny area and way too crowded on weekends. No climbs of significant elevation.

Fun place to go on a full moon in the fall when it's empty.

Killpecker has some good climbs and I have never had big crowds.

It's too nice outside. I'm taking one of these & hopping on the 990.
