I've got to give Ryman some Props. I was on the Dinosaur Run 2012 with some Inmates from Colorado last weekend when a rider in our group fried his clutch in a sand section of trail we encountered. He limped his bike into Jensen, Utah our only fuel stop for the day. While sitting there trying to figure out how to get help for our Colorado inmate, I remembered that Ryman lived in Vernal. I didn't have his number so I texted GISKev for his number. Kevin sent me Rymans number. I called him and without hesitation he said, "I'll get my trailer and be there in 20 mins".

Talk about the ADV hookup. I don't know of many internet communities where you can rely on complete strangers for help. I knew Ryman but Charles didn't. The rest of the group was thoroughly impressed with Ryman's willingness to help an inmate. I hope some day I can be in a position to help an inmate in distress(insert Pluric's comment here). Thanks Ryman you will be part of the RR for the Dinosaur Run 2012 forever.

I've got the main loop, but you may need to clean it up a bit... pm me an email address that accepts attachments if you want it. googling as much turned up lots too. It's marked really well so you really don't even need one although i take mine everywhere cuz i can.

Decided to go Guardsman's, Mirror Lake, Monte Cristo, back to Lehi today. Fun ride. I'd forgotten about all the, ah, interesting people at the Maverick in Evanston.

Totally rocking this bitch!




Can you spell final drive failure? Just bearings and a seal.





Don't tell Walrus I blew a seal - makes him jealous...
Fertile ground there Mr Moo.........

Anything for this Sunday for a 400? Or a street ride would be fine to.

I'd write the check as Pluric suggested if the cracks weren't a total vindication of what my wee can handle! (yes, a set up)

Also, check out what i found on the webbernet!



sh!t... lets line up a late summer ride!

I think Walrus could use a hand with whatever he/she has done now.

People should be ticketed for not securing their load!!

The other was a wood pallet getting spun across the lanes. Both required evasive maneuvers that were dangerous in a 4,000 lbs vehicle, but would have been impossible on a bike.

In my experience, people are rather nonchalant about securing their stuff--their level of care is proportional to the value of the item and not the harm it could cause. A POS mattress or sofa? Just toss it on. If it's not there when we get where we're going, oh well.
I commute on my bike year round, and I don't even care about this kind of stuff since it happens all the time... i don't care if people are on the phone and come into my lane, i just move into the shoulder and give em the birdy (for their sake, not mine) I've had a texting person slip their foot off the brake and push me into cross flow traffic almost, until i dented the hood w/ my carbon fiber knuckles. they looked pissed that i dented their hood on a sweet beemer. how sad.

Be responsible for yourself and expect ninjas to TRY to kill you, and you may live to ride another day. I've got very specific lane changes that i do to minimize conflict on my route. debris flying out of the back of a truck is different, but you've got to know that it could happen.. I had a semi tire blow (50 lbs of rubber) and fly right over my head. I ducked. The road is a dangerous place and those who venture their should expect the best, but accept the worst.

Hey I though I would post up here... I am looking for a small sailboat to mess around with on the weekends. Something that can hold 2 people. I have sailed lots of boats from sunfishes to hobiecats to windsurfers. KSL is pretty scarce as far as sailboats go. so if you have something sitting around you never use anymore or maybe know some one with one let me know. Interested in everything from sunfishes to day sailers, just has to be towable by a 4cyl tacoma or fit in the bed/roof. I appreciate it guys

Here is some Utah Motorbike content.


My XT and buddies Ninja up Emigration. Stop and say hi if you ever see me thumping around town!

Fano and I are heading out tonight for some night time fun from 5 mile to eureka ( hopefully before the gas station closes ) and back. Should be fun.
