Stop thinking about conceiving!

Your job is to report!

What is the report?

Where are you, etc.

hey thanks trackhead. The sun actually popped out for a sec and lit up the grass in the foreground. The rest of the tweaks were done in photoshop (pretty much like shooting with a graduated ND filter). If you look closely you can see two of the biggest smiles I have ever seen----------------you gotta give a hand to the models......they had a rough job riding their motorcycles, which we all know isn't very fun.

Eh? Bountiful reign (rain) over me!

Here my ride report today. Cold, wet, muddy, slippery, and fun T.S.T. with a sheet of ice and clouds on top! I always have problems uploading photos here.

Anyone wanna ride the PET next Saturday, weather pemitting?
I went to go up there at 3pm on friday and the gate was closed.
:-(

I'm game. You doing the whole loop in one day or planning on staying in Wendover overnight and then just slabbing back home Sunday?

You are right, the gate was closed but there is an ATV/Snowmobile/pedistrian access on the right side of the gate. I zipped through and the adventure began.

Was planning on doing the loop in one day. I've never done it before so I don't how long it should take.

Maybe someone who has done it could tell me how much ride time to plan for?

I've done before and took me all day. Kickstands were up at 9AM and I remember getting back home at 9PM. We took it easy and that includes a stop for dinner at Peppermill.
