What is the vision here? Out Friday PM, back Sunday? Sat?

Oh, I see how it is...what? no grieving period? Just immediately start looking for new meat? Heartless bastards

On a good note, I put my t-shirt on by myself!

Harcus, plan is leave 3PMish tommorrow, back Monday afternoon or evening. Leave and depart from the area.. Mostly pretty ADV light-medium bike ish higher speed. The stuff you/we all like to do. Some little areas of technical and off beaten paths and some exploring in the swell (the section I put together). SLC to Wellington, Wellington to Green River. May/likely head down to Moab. Likely Kokopelli to Grand Junction, Grand Junction to Vernal, and then Vernal back to SLC. Pretty ambitious of course, but all doable...

I would have been in with the Hick replacements but another guy is dragging us
Beast riders on the Skyline Drive tomorrow. Never been on it. Sounds scenic
but not too technical.

If it's what I'm thinking of, it's mostly graded gravel. 100mph if you feel sporty in spots.

Definitely interesting. Sounds like a good ride. Particularly so since Ryman took care of Hick of us. And it only cost a beer!

Death Sport!

like, OMG, I'm like LMFAO so gag me w/ a kickstand! "Death Sport" circa 1978 is even better than "Cycle South" if you want a good moto movie! You can stream it on netflux or maybe find it on youtube...
