I'd probably need to leave a half hour before you......


It took a minute to look up where Manti is located......looks like 2 hours or so whether you go to Nephi or take the Spanish Fark routes......Auction at noon and BBQ lunch in the park..........I don't have an agenda so what time generally works for folks.......

I was in Layton this afternoon and the day was so perfect that I thought I'd take Avon Pass home rather than I-15/Logan Canyon. I knew they close that road in the winter, but figured it must be open by now. Nope.

Can anyone point me to a website I can check periodically that will say whether it's been opened yet or not?




edit:

Maybe it will be open tomorrow, if the road work is completed:

"The higher than normal runoff of 2011 accelerated erosion, and impending continued failure of the embankment now threatens to close Mt. Pisgah Road at this location. The project concept is to stabilize the remaining embankment slope with a shoring retain wall and prevent further erosion caused by the stream.

"Project construction is to begin in mid March and extend to June 1, 2013. During this time the contractor will be working and public access on both South canyon Road and Mt Pisgah Road will be limited. South Canyon Road is normally closed until approximately June 1, so little impact to the public will be created. "

Hey, if you guys can leave a bit later and don't mind the company I think me and the SO could be up for this.....and here's the best part.... I rented a Harley for tomorrow,,,, I can't really explain it.....lol....I need to pick it up at the HD dealer on State Street at 9:00 and can head right out from there. I need to return it by 4:00. They're having an MDA fund raiser there as well, so there's a concert going on after 4:00 for anyone who's up for it.

This way there'll be at least one bike that won't break it's final drive, bend a rim or have a water pump fail,,,,

Hater. Underpowered, overweight, brakeless, 2 inches of travel bikes need love too.
Just listen to the noise they make as they cry out for your attention.

See? This way you'll be able to keep up on that yamahahaha with the wobbly wheels!

So, will you guys be meeting us at the HD shop, or be heading out sans American Iron?

I can do the HD store. I'm trying to find the Walrus number I had in some past ride PMs. No luck.
I'll try Harcus to get his number. Anyone else going? Meet at the HD dealer on State. I'm so curious
to find out if Kevin's 'SO' is a boy or a girl. Renting a Harley,? I'm betting a boy.

Well it turned out to be a great day for a ride. Perfect weather and an odd destination.
Kevin wanted to meet at the HD dealer so he could rent a wreck for the day.
Turns out there was some HD ride going on too. I'm sure it was just coincidence
but when Paul Harvey pulled is mint KTM up by my Tenere the HD crowd thined
in a hurry.

Paul stopped by to meet and greet. Promised to post more and lurk less.



I moved my bike back in the HD line up just to make them all move again.



Kevin pulled up with his poser for a day and I lost my bet, his SO is a she and really nice!
Okay, cute too. Kinda makes you wonder if the Harley wasn't the only rental for the day.



Aww, nothing says romance like a Harley and I-15.



Same for Ken, just that he's in love with himself.



I don't know how many of you even remember the Rat Fink era. Judging by the
crown it's not over. I wore flames for Kevin's Harely and in case he did bring a guy.



Live band with some vintage R&R.
