Thanks. If there's not much riding up there anyways, maybe we will make some other plans. Is it just the jeep trail that goes to the lakes, and thats it?

Just got my 950 Adventure running again, and would be great to meet up with some other riders and do some riding.

Been here 7 years, but alas, life got in the way, but this summer I'm looking to change that. So many parts of this state I need to see.

We should plan a GJ area Meet & Greet ride one of these weekends... even something as simple as riding over John Brown to Moab and back for the day. See if we can get some other local ADV'ers out for fun & good times!

Well I just completed my rider safety course, and I'm excited to get my hands on a bike and hit the road! If any of you have any leads on a cheap ($2500 or less) KLR650 or something similar, let me know! The hunt begins! There are a handful of good deals on the front range but I don't have a truck, so I'm brainstorming solutions...

Also, I don't know if it's weird to ask this... but if any of you have a KLR and you wouldn't mind letting me take a look at it and maybe even teaching me a little about the bike, that'd be super helpful. Or if you know some kind soul who might be willing to lend me a hand. Not looking to ride your bike! But I honestly haven't even sat on one before. I'd like to see how I fit, mostly. I'm specifically looking at pre-2008 KLRs, simply because of price.

I'm down, and I have a buddy who also has a 990 Adv. Call the date.

Sweet! My bike is in the shop this week, hopefully will have it back in my hands for a decent test ride this next weekend. The following weekend is Memorial Day and I've got plans... how about the weekend after that?

Say, Saturday, June 1st?

Meet nice & early (8 am?) somewhere in Junction, ride down Unaweep Canyon to Gateway, then John Brown to Moab... either the North or South side of the La Sals. Late lunch in Moab, then back to GJ by the river road. We could ride from Cisco and some dirt roads to Westwater, then the old highway back to town.

Sounds good to me.

What do you ride? Maybe meet someplace downtown for some coffee before we leave?

Works for me! Any suggestions on a meeting place?

I ride a KTM 690 Enduro, little brother to the big Adventure and SE's.

Greg, yes I will. Most likely ride with you guys to Gateway then finish the loop thru Naturita and Ridgeway. Just have straight road tires on it right now.

I need to get the forks on my KLR rebuilt, but I'm in (assuming the wife hasn't made plans for that date).

Moved here in January, but I've just been riding back and forth to work.

How's about Randy's Southside Diner at 8:30? Wheels up at 9:15 or thereabouts.

Sounds good, that's why I asked... those roads would be pretty rough for a Strom with street tires. I do love the rest of the ride you will be making!

Get them done and we will see you out there! Always fun to meet other local riders.

Sounds like a plan, got an address by chance?
