That none of us really own a bike.




I'm sure they picture Infidel with a ankle monitor and a restraining order.

Eh? WP Fork Bleeders

I received the wrong fork bleeders which say WP. I assume it is for some KTM
P.O.S. or similar bike. I will trade for Czech beer or bleeding Honda bleeders! Pm, if interested?

Eh? Rear ended!

I was waiting for traffic to clear in a left turn lane on friday, when WHAM! I got rear-ended* and nearly pushed into the other traffic. I had my feet on the ground so i didn't fall over, and luckily the car was smallish so the bumper hit my back tire and no damage done. I did have to wait for the next light while starting my bike up...

*no gay pics please...

Iv'e been bumped a couple of times but only while just taking off at a light.
It is an eye opener though how vunerable our bikes are from behind.
You're real lucky Kev and I am glad you are o.k. Take care of yourself! Even small injuries can run our rides. I love you man! Sorry to sound GAY

There is no route entirely in the Books from Vernal to Green River. No matter how you slice it, you will have to exit the Books north of the Price River. The last leg of the route leading to the Price River is trial bike territory, but open to motos.

It is pretty back there though.

You can get from Vernal to I 70 East of Green River a few different ways, such as Baxter Pass, Seep Ridge/Hay Canyon
