All this talk of fun! during my days off is killing me. I need to get on the ball and find a dual-sport or something so I can get off the paved path a bit.

Federal judge rules no off-road vehicles on Richfield BLM lands

Blue Ribbon Released this press release this morning. Pretty unfortunate. Here is the release. These are some of the areas that include Skyline Trail in western swell, down to and west and south of Hanksville.

On the radio yesterday, Brian Hawthorne of BRC thought the Richfield plan lacked some dotted i's and crossed t's, and it wouldn't domino to the other Utah BLM field plans.

The weather man says it will be 64 deg tomorrow. Looks like a good day to ride the 5 mile to Eureka / CC route. Anyone to come along?

Another thread here about the ruling:

It's important everyone becomes a BRC pledge partner to fight this nonsense.

According to my topos, ya gotta get north to Montezuma Creek, Bluff, Mexican Hat, etc (Hwy 163 / 191) to get off of Indian Territory. But there are some nice spots up there.

That is closer for you than going to St George / Az Strip isn't it?

My small bores are put up on a trailer. If the Monday thing works out and
is big bore friendly I would consider letting a select few have the honor of
being seen with a Tenere. If not I may pull the forks and send them off to
a suspension guru to be ready for next season.

Holy schmoly.....I took a short cruise today up Immigration and over Big Mountain to Mormon Flats and the Jeremy Ranch road....Bikes all over the side of the road.....careful folks, especially on the north side of Big Mountain. There were a couple of young guys on Ducatis and one of them went down hard...those S curves had iced up and then been sanded, which made them slicker than pure ice.....it was obvious that several bikes had been down on those corners......and the beautiful HD rider wasn't wearing a helmet.....they thought he'd live but not sure if he'll ride again......

A lot of BMW riders replace their forks with KTM items. You might consider that. Also, ACE hardware has orange paint in spray cans. ANother good upgrade. Not sure how to fix your wheels or the fifteen other issues.
