We all went to middle school together and are all still super close... 3-4 days, not sure if march will be too early but thinking march or early april.

Not sure if anyone has any recommendations. A bunch of single track and some double track would be great. Biggest issue is just the limited time especially if we can only do 3 days and have to come back to a car or something... Epic would be the swell, and maybe down to powell or so... Not sure what the route would be. South of moab would be great except not sure it would be melted out yet at that point...

Thanks guys, all ears on recommendations...
wr 250?

Hey Guys,
I bought a BMW Rallye 3 jacket from a fellow member and some tweeker stole it off my porch after USPS dropped it off. The mail carrier saw the guy and tried to chase him down but he got away. It is the grey/blue and a size 54. If anybody sees someone wearing a $800 BMW motorcycle jacket that looks out of place or one for sale that doesn't seem right please look out for me. It was stolen from the Sugarhouse area. I'll buy everyone a beer if we catch this bastard. Thanks

Jeez, that sucks! I'm missing some skull candy head phones and other goodies that should have been delivered like 4 days ago, wondering if the same thing happened...

So again any recommendations on trip ideas would be great. Derek was thinking start in Woodside making way west towards some of the stuff by 5 Miles of Hell. In the Swell would be great and would do the trick...

thanks for the recommendations so far... As mentioned some desert single and double track would be awesome...

Already itching to get out. Particularly now that it's winter (doh!). Tuned up and rejetted my bike last night and new rubber coming shortly.. Just to sit for the next couple months most likely.. :(

I'm sure the EPA will get right back to you on that.
