Would love to meet more of the gang, but I'm booked for a camping trip with my son (which is also a great thing ). I'll be watching for the next one...

That's the whole point of the ride! To get some new riders out and meet new people.

I'd rather be riding with you tomorrow. I bet it's beautiful out there right now.

And I thought you were sick of the desert. But then, riding anywhere beats working. Spring is definately the time to ride the Owyhees, while its cool and green.

Well, I think my summer just got blown to hell. First day in Colorado and I was tasked with finishing one of the most important pieces of the whole damn thing. Good for my career, bad for riding and morale. There's got to be a better way to make a living than this..... I may be here til the end of August.

That blows. New tiger and 1000 miles from it. That will give HT lots of time to get you dialed in. My offer still stands to park it next too mine so it will have company while your away.

I will try to get the ride proofed out soon. as usual it will be in the 130 to 160 mile range. I am acutely aware this is the same area ridden every year but I'll do my best to try and change it up.

As for the meeting place I am thinking of a new location and will post it up when I've decided.

Come one, come all, thee who seek to knock the cobb webs off and ease back into the saddle. For goodness sakes Spring has FINALLLY arrived.



I wanted to do this ride on the 21st, but not to step on any toes I have moved it up to a short notice timeline of the 14th

Category: Community Ride
Start Date: 05/14/2011 - 8:30 am MDT Wheels rolling out of town @ 0900
End Date: 05/14/2011 - 5:30 pm MDT
Distance: 130 to 160 mile day
Meeting @: Bad Boy Burger on Fairview (something new)
Accomod.: Not Applicable
Fuel Avail: Every 100 Miles
Food Avail: Available enroute ($)

Sorry for the short notice but didn't want to step on any toes on the 21st. and the weather hasn't been to cooperative either.

It isn't so bad here... I just thought I was coming down for six weeks and it turned into a lot longer on day one. The plan is sell the Superhawk before I go back to Idaho on June 19th to hang with my mom while she visits Idaho. Fly to Idaho, ride the Tiger back to Colorado. I'll have my trailer in Colorado and it'll be empty as long as the hawk sells. Getting two brand new Michelin Pilot Power 2CTs on Tuesday. That should help sell it, as well as be a lot of fun til it does! I promise y'all can take a spin on the Tiger after I scratch her for the first time personally.

So would a person be better off (more fun) riding an XR 650 with knobbies or a 1200 GS with Tourances??
