Gunnison Last month

Met a few of the I-BMW crowd and some friends from back east in Gunnison, CO. Great riding all around that area and real beer!

Sunday Ride

A few GS riders are departing BMW at 9AM Riding Hobble Creek, Diamond Fork, Skyline Dr. to Scofield. After grabbing a bite in Scofield, we will probably slab it back to SLC; unless stamina is good enough to dirt it back...

The rain should cut down on the dust!

Added to the stable this morning, 1969 Triumph, 650cc. It will take some getting used to the brake on the left

Called Hick. Sounds like he found a trailer to get his bike to the hotel.

Sounded like he wants to get it where he can look it over and then decide what his next move is.

I recycle metal. if you have the gps coord's for it and can tell me how many pounds etc I might send my mules to recover said transmission IF AND ONLY IF the recycle bounty is GREATER THAN the price of hay for my mules.

I guess if you are meeting at a BMW dealer one should expect mostly BMWs.





The ride was going well. Great weather, limited dust and fairly tame trails.
Issac was the first to have to bug out with a nagging overheating issue. Bye.



The four of us continued on towards Skyline Drive.

Here is Dan, AKA Dr. Dan (You'll see soon) Seems like everyone wanted a photo
with the Tenere.







The sign for Skyline Drive is a little over hype.


The boys get ready for the "Steep grades" and "Other hazards"

Here comes Kevin (2wheeladv) and ride leader.



With Dan and James right behind.



There was a junction the had Scofield 15 miles so we thought to try it.
Up till then the roads had been fine few puddles nothing bad at all.
As we started out there were a few more wet spots and I noticed they
were a little more slick. I'd backed off on a slimey looking one and
Kevin blasted through it. I just thought I wasn't worth dropping 600lbs to me.

We then came up on another larger wet section with Kevin maybe 10 yards
ahead of me. You could see it was pure slime and I watched the BMW go
down. Normally I would go for the Trophy Photo but I could tell Kevin was
not going to jump up. The bike went down with his knee taking most the
impact and at an odd angle. He was hurt! Here's Dr. Dan checking out
what he could.



Dan had planned on a different type ride an had his side bags on. He had
filled them stuff to justify having them on. Pulls out this first aid kit that would
make a hospital blush. Tried to get Kevin to put on the hospital gown but that
didn't go over well.

I'm not a doctor but I have seen Karate Kid twice and felt confident I could try the
hand rub so Kevin could do the Swan move on his bike. He wasn't interested.
Dan put a Ace bandage on instead and there was enough signal strenth to text his
wife to bring the Fambulance, (Jeep and a trailer she had to hook up herself)

Kevin decided if we could get him on his bike he could make it to Highway 6 and he did.
800 milligrams of meds may have helped.

The mud hole...







On the way out at a snails pace I got a front flat??? Couldn't see any tire failure
and had only added a new small ding to the front rim. I aired up and it held fine.
That was weird.



After a reasonable wait Kevin's wife shows up, the bike is loaded and the rest of us
slab it back to SLC. Bummer about the knee, I think he really was in pain.

Recovered the bike. Found a mechanic. Looks like Pinedale is home for a couple days.

Good RR. Sorry again for f'ing up the ride. Thanks to all for sticking around to help me get down the road and load the bike. . After a night of ice, pain killers and swelling, its off to the ortho. Swelling wont go down and the pain meds are the only savior.

Hey, I had sex too!

On a serious note, I hope it's not as bad as it sounds like it feels. Hard to admit but
we don't heal up like we used to. Keep us updated.
