Butterfield Canyon

I rode up Butterfield and down the other side to Tooele this afternoon. I can't say I'd recommend it this time of year on 2 wheels. I have no pics to prove it because I was white knuckleing it most the way. Especially on the Tooele side. Lots of snow about 4" deep and a few drifts at more than a 1' deep. I don't know how I managed to get through it with out dumping the 800GS. After that I rode out to Grantsville and messed around in the foothills. I think I got my K60 rear tire broke in now.

Anyone wanna ride the PET next Saturday, weather pemitting?

Not being from Colorado, we are not concerned about dressing up for "the show" in the latest matching head to toe factory KTM outfit.

May I also say I dislike sand.

Other than that, very intertaining.

That's cuz you have to stand up to ride sand! And we all know you do your best riding on your butt!

RR: bobsled!

After my rooerblade-behind-a-germanShepherd crash that busted up my wrist a bit, i figured i'd get back in the game w/ a 28 lb bike rather than a 280 lb bike!

Eureka ride

A short RR...

A little ridin, a little shootin, a little eatin, a little shiverin...

Trailtwister is recouping from a tweak to the back & new inmate Salute needed to get some pics....

So, we headed to Eureka via the back roads. Luckily it was a nice sunny warm day...




After wandering in the desert for a while, we made it to the destination. As you can see, we all agreed on the color of the day...



Salute picked up a "clean one owner only ridden on Sunday" 640 Adventure. We tried our best to scratch it up but failed. Here he is patting it saying "Wait right here, we'll be back soon"...



This is but an intro. Salute will tune this RR up with some proper pics soon.

Good ride guys, thanks. Let's do it again soon.
