Cherry Creek Recon

With the weather about to turn for the worse, Saturday dictated a run to Cherry Creek to evaluate the snow level.

Much commiseration accompanied the lunch break...



And the day was finished with the question from this guy "Who is going to clean this crap off my bike?".



The good news... Much is ridable below 7000 ft

The bad news... It's messy above same, particularly on the dark side of the moon.

Best to have new knobs on the hoops (which we did not have). O well...

Went up on the B a few times before winter, but just about any ride is good. Looking at the pictures from Moab, seems I should take a trip down there. Two more days off work to find some good riding!

Does this odometer look suspicious? I'm thinking about adding a TW200 to the stable as a buddy bike. Even the wear on the spare key...

Definitely a roll-back job. Look how the three just rises above the others. Bike also looks like it has many more miles. Other than that these clown bikes are a bunch of fun!

The 3 rising above the others is normal because it is prepping to change to 140.Most speedos act like that.

Wish I could make it. It seems like my schedule and the trials event schedule just aren't matching up this year. :(

That may work. I'm planning on spending some time down near chimney rock around then.

TW200 is a great little bike. There's an '06 on Western Slope CL with only 700 miles. Guy bought it for kids & they don't ride. I think his price is $2300 or so...

More info: did you ride the bikes down? Where'd you stay, camp or hotel it? I drove through Moab last Monday on my way back from Arizona, weather was chilly, especially at night but the daytime temps looked great for riding. How did Zebbidog like it......
