fixt..........although I'm gonna bet that pluric has more pics of me stranded in those rocks.....

In my defense, after missing that downshift, turning the BigAssDirtBike around on the hill and picking it up twice.....I was out of energy and needed the assist....

But the rest of the ride was great..........

That was a steep, rocky, slippery hill.

Walrus has dedicated his retirement time to the study of the effects of gravity on KTMs.
He got some fantastic research done today.

If KTMs, BMWs and Yamahas can ride in peace why can't the rest of the world?

When the sun is right Alan's KTM sent a Raiders of the Lost Ark type message.







Ahh Ken, the trail is just a little to your left. No a little more. Warm, warmer....

Stayed out of their way until it was over. I hope they come back to pick up the little route flags left all over.
I'd be surprised if the route flags weren't all picked up from the MTB race, but if they weren't, send me a PM. I know the race organizer and can make sure it gets done.

When I went over to the South side where the event had been everyone was gone
but one vehicle that was loading up. I assumed they were done. Normally I try
to pick up cans, water bottles and garbage I see on the trails. I left the directional
flags because I wasn't sure if it was a two day event or what. Looked like they had
good turn out of riders. Good for them.

I bought a DR650 over the weekend, and it came equipped with the short side stand. Does anyone want to trade? I need a standard length unit. I will be in Tooele until Thursday, then Bountiful for the weekend.
Drop a line, 801 200 twenty five thirteen.

FYI this passed this year:

HB316 allows those driving both motorcycles and bicycles to proceed through a red light which they determine does not detect their presence after waiting at least 90 seconds provided it can be done safely. It also clarifies when roadway authorities may reasonably prohibit bicycles from using the roadway and that they must provide an alternative route. A caveat: this is only an “affirmative defense” which means you can still be ticketed, but can have the charge dismissed after arguing your case in front of the judge, and we must review next legislative session. For details, visit le.utah.gov/~2013/bills/static/HB0316.html

The hey-day of Paris-Dakar. BMW was still competitive, 4WD Rothmans 911s, Range Rovers, etc..
