IF you see a '12 WR250R ridden by an old geezer and an '09 CRF230L with a lady onboard that's holding her looks much better than I (both with OK tags)... that's likely us! Be sure to say HI!

V-man
Will be looking for ya, I am probably older than you,. You will be able to tell me I have a rocking chair now for a seat.

You have a good time, also.

We will be around the Ouray area this week/weekend. I may venture back through Colorado springs to go see my sis in Denver before I head home next week. How long are you staying?

Good luck with all that. They aren't really interested in changing the club from its current status from what ive seen.Who is saying they are interested in the dual sport community?

Thanks man! Hey I've been meaning to thank you for that hockey puck you gave me! I bolted it on before I left and it's been great!

Wouldn't it of filled the cylinder if the carb was leaking? I pulled the air box drain and no gas came out, just some filter oil.

Anybody got a suggestion?
Get something reliable, like a KTM.

Trip

This weekend riding to Durango, then back to Colorado Springs area for a few days. The hoping to ride up the Estes Park area, the next weekend. Then back home, and work, as much as I would rather just ride. Oh well some time away from work is always welcome.
