I haven't ridden with any of you yet, not because I haven't wanted to, the planets haven't lined up for me to do so until now. Hope you don't mind me tagging along?

I'm a strong maybe, 90% for this ride. I would probably ride with you until noon-ish then head back to town.
I'll tag along on my v-strom. I like the knarly stuff, and have knobbies but lately I've been trying to keep the turn signals from getting busted since Giskev will buy my bike soon.

I'll slab back w/ ya and maybe hop on some more big bike friendly stuff on the way back. I neither of us make it by 7:30AM, we can always go on a v-strom ride later in the morning...

as usual I am in the hands of sorostitutes and other vices on weekends to really be reliable that early the next day!

North Slope Road

Fellas, here's a couple sneaky routes in case we want to get off the beaten path. One from Mill Cr Guard Station to Elizabeth Pass (USFS open to all vehicles), and the other from Stateline Res to an oil well road, then over a ridge to pop out at Henrys Fork Narrows (by Hick's Crick). It starts with a stretch of trail for vehicles 'under 50 inches' then to all vehicles roads.

Just in case you wanna little more twisty trail.

We did the N Slope road (excluding the twisty sneaks), all the way to Stateline Res a few weeks ago, with a Wee-Strom and a GS1100, no prob. A little bumpy is all. Butthis time, I'm bringing my bigass dirtbike (950 Adv-S) with panniers.

Well, I would post the two files if I could figure out how. They're .kmz files. PM me an email address and I'll send 'em.

I just got back from a ride with Adv. riders Fano and Dumb Girl at Bountiful.
Like I have said before, 'Don't under estimate the closest place to
ride'. If it is challenging for a Mnt. bike there is always lots of moments on your dirt bike! Thanks guy and gal.

I'm fairly familiar with the Whitney Res. area, but not too fimiliar with the Coalville side. If it's anything like the Whitney area I will have no problem riding the Wee-Strom.

I have breakfast covered. The menu will be eggs with onions, mushrooms and cheese, some sort of breakfast meat, toast and juice.

Right now I plan on feeding 5. There is no reason to bring anything unless you don't feel comfortable eating steroid-injected institutionally-raised poultry products.
