Yo, things are on track right now so I'm still planning to catch up with you guys tomorrow. I'll be getting into town early after noonish.

Oh, and if you get over to the KTM guys, see if they have any bolts for my kickstand....lol...apparently if you stick the kickstand into the mud and then try to climb on...it will sink in and snap off the bolt head......apparently.....

Moab next weekend...

I'm curious what everyone's favorite trails are in/near Moab. I'm taking the big bike down there this time (f800), any suggestions? I hear that Onion Creek and the White Rim Trail are tough to beat.

Which bike, what areas are you looking to ride? There's a group looking to ride the mainland again in March, probably 2 weeks...

I suspected you would be looking for some desolate single track to feed upon.....

Depending on who goes I do not mind hammering or even stopping at the first beach and hang out for a few days.
