Hoping to get a few more rides in before it starts snowing :)

At this time of the year before snow falls I like to park at Five mile pass so I don't have to drive too far and start riding from there to Eureka to gas up and from there on Chery Creek Rd

Awesome looking dog Kev! I love dogs, they're better people than we are. Especially some of us.... *cough, Pluric, cough, cough..*

Here's a few shots from the ride the other day - thought you might like to see 'em. Hope your fingers have thawed out!

So we started with a little of this: (and yes, I know the service light is on.... )



Then we ran into a little of this:


Then there was a little of this: (if you look really close you can just see GISKev in front of me there)



Then, there was some of this: (I don't have pice of the really heavy stuff for obvious reasons )


About then we realized it was this:



Then we got a glimpse of this: (notice the sign on the right - that will become important very soon )



This is why when you ride on the street, you always need to keep a little in reserve....:


And finally, just because I want to:



Thanks again for leading all day Kev - it was a good day!

So i have traded up from the old honda shadow to this beautiful BMW 1200 GS Adventure.

I am looking forward to getting it out there on the pavement for some long distance trips.

Maybe not elk-hunting, lol but for sure in the city and close outskirts compared to the Nw. I'm shocked when I actually see a D/S in the city.

I'm down for beer, just not that 3.2 crap :)

Coming from Heber its the same drive time to cc or 5 mile. 5 mile to cc is fun but gets a little boring and limits your ability to ride all the good stuff at cc unless you have gas stashed out there somewhere. ;)

If anyone is interested I'd love to get out and ride Cherry Creek on Saturday if the weather holds. I'll need to be back in SLC by about 5 PM so it would be a mid-morning thing.

Gonna go rip a quick spontaneous mini loop through AF/Cummings Parkway/Gaurdsman if anyone is interested. I could be down with extending it up through the Uintas too. Leaving SLC in about 45 min - should be pretty mellow with a little dirt action. ate oh won nin won oh five seven seven oh.

UTBDR Question - Spring rideable?

Hey Utah ADVrs,
Planning to ride the UTBDR in 2013 and need some advice. When would be the earliest I could expect it to be rideable? I know the answer is "when the snow melts"..but then what about river crossings? May? June?
We are planning on starting North and heading South...
Thanks in advance.

Late June would be my guess.
