People are quick to bitch about what breaks and quiet about non issues so you tend
to only hear and remember break downs. Kind of like a Buell. Some owners have never had
an issue to speak of and others seem to be working on them all the time.

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.

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?
