Didn't do much brewing in Park City because I had a finished basement, and you really need a 'wet room' to slop stuff around in. My house in Milwaukee was perfect for that, one of the old cement block basement with the cement laundry tubs deal. Anyway, Guinness is the holy grail for home brewers, it's actually pretty easy to do a knock off of something like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, but re-creating Guinness was never possible for me nor anyone else I ever knew who brewed. Something about the open fermentation in Ireland, I guess.

The riding here is very good, but I haven't yet found the equivalent of either Mirror Lake or Wolf Creek. On the other hand, I can stop at the RedHook brewery on my way home from work and pick up a growler, so there are tradeoffs....

You do realize that the ex-gov loosened the liquor laws before being sent to China? The result: Clubs sold more food and less liquor but you can go anywhere you want for just one drink and then move on........and Sunday dining is now open season for a meal and a drink.........

PS harcus, I can use that glass carboy........

You should break down and set up a burly Enduro!... We're hitting Moab on Columbus weekend on Enduro style bikes... any takers?

I know... I do have a headlight and some signals I can throw on... I just don't think the state will plate my 2-stroke.

I'm with you on that confusion. The side of my DR650 clearly states "Dual Sport" but I keep getting told it's an enduro.

I'm pretty sure the state law doesn't distinguish between 4-stroke and 2-stroke.

Also I've personally seen at least one two-stroke with Utah plates.

A couple years ago I confirmed in the Utah Code and with with an inspection station that it didn't matter, and that the only requirements were: Headlight, mirror, horn (bulb horn ok), tail light, brake light. That's it. No DOT tires, no turn signals needed.

But a couple weeks ago someone (HickOnACrick? or GISKev?) told me Utah changed the law and turn signals are now required.

There may be a publication on the DWR (?) or parks/ recreation website.

Most inspection shops don't pay attention to DOT labels on tires.

This answers many questions! Milwaukee....brew....Guinness...Triumphs...it is all coming together now....

Yes, Guinness has some secret ingredients.

Did you try Capitian Bastards by Squatters when you were here? Not a Guinness but a very good oatmeal stout.

Redhook is a decent place to visit.

You were supposed to be crusin the cascades for good routes for us. Are you shirkin your responsibility?
