My wife loves to ride pillion so I extended her pegs to keep her knees out of her ears. Simple plates bolted on. Lowered her pegs about three inches and made it much more comfortable for her.

I'm looking forward to meeting some of you and benefiting from your expertise...I'm here to learn! Thanks folks.



Welcome to ADVRider and the Rockies forum Mark! The DR650 is a great do-it all bike, I've had a couple and really like them.

The best way to increase your trail skill is to get out and ride! Like you said, GJ is a great place for riding... lots of places to go & many different ways to get there.

We need to work on putting together some local GJ rides once it warms up and the desert dries out. There are quite a few Western Slope/GJ guys here, shouldn't be hard to get out once a month for a dirt ride.

Strike one for associating with Colorado Uli. You have an uphill battle to earn any respect around here.






Welcome Mark! I'm a Gland Function rider, too. That Uli is a bad seed, I tell you. Bad, bad seed. Have you met his dog Luttefisk?

Hi Mark! Welcome to ADVrider.

First things first: Unaweep drinks Bud Light! (this just to show the man's poor taste and lack of character)

Then: Ludwig the dog is way too cool for shady trolls like that guy above. He's jealous and making fun of Ludwig's name is the best he can do. What a hater. So sad ....

Then: Cindy also likes to ride pillion, so we may be able to do a ride together some time this spring. Also, if you want to practice sometime, I like going out behind the airport to stretch my legs on the bike in the evenings and wouldn't mind at all if I had some company.

Thanks for all the help with setting me up with the windows deal. Hopefully I'll get the order in this or next week.

Cheers!

Details:

Where - Band of Brothers Building, 2538 I70 Frontage Road, Grand Junction Co. 81506

When - Thursday February 28th, 2013. Doors open at 6:00pm, documentary premier starts at 7:00pm
The total price of the ticket is $10 with tax included. A total of $10 per ticket will be billed to your card after your order is submitted. No physical ticket will be mailed to you. You will simply be added to the guestlist and can check in at the door the night of the event.
Tom Myers and Paul Guillien of Touratech-USA have teamed up with Rob Watt, Bryce Stevens, Justin Bradshaw and Sterling Noren to create a 501c(4) non-profit organization dedicated to establishing and preserving off-pavement riding opportunities for dual-sport and adventure-touring motorcycles. One of the primary goals of the Backcountry Discovery Routes organization is to create routes that cross entire states using primarily unpaved roads across public lands and mountain ranges.
In the last few years, the team has created both the Washington and Utah Backcountry Discovery Routes, and has just completed a route for the state of Colorado, which will be released to the public with free GPS tracks in early 2013.
The expedition team included Backcountry Discovery Route board members named above, as well as journalist Tony Huegel, photographer Jonathan Beck and KLIM's Jayson Wickencamp. The team filmed the first expedition of the Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route (COBDR) in August of this year for a forthcoming film, produced by Noren Films, which will highlight their 700+ mile off-road expedition across the state of Colorado.
"I'm really excited to release the latest installment in the Backcountry Discovery Route series, the COBDR. It was a wonderful motorcycle expedition and I think we've created a classic adventure ride. Viewers of the film will get a taste of what awaits them in Colorado - spectacular scenery, historic mining towns and exhilarating adventure riding on what is arguably one of the best rides in the country."
- Sterling Noren, Producer, Noren Films

He he ... Them there pictures are in my secret vault. :-)

BTW - that picture Adventure girl posted of piggy parts getting done in the disco, that was the last time I ate anything like that, a.k.a. the end of the piggy years. Sigh!

Looking forward to spring more than ever before.
