Four Corners Area Chatter

Hello all. I am hoping that we can use this spot for meet ups, rides, and general nonsense specific to those members living and riding near the Four Corners Area (SW Colorado, SE Utah, NW New Mexico, and the Rez).

In the area? Chime in and introduce yourself with a pic of yourself and your bike.

Here I am. We live in Cortez and work & volunteer on the Navajo Nation. Love off road and the challenges of the big bikes. Nearly always looking to ride and get an excuse to help change tires or BS with other riders...



She likes to ride, too...


And so do the three little ones (although they're not staying so little).

Our kids spend a couple weeks out there every summer visiting their Grandparents. I'm hoping to fly them out with my wife while I ride out to pick her up for the ride home to NC. Will have to look you up!

We did this trip a couple years ago on a Harley Ultra . Can't wait to get back out there on the GS!

If you happen in to Dennis Morita's State Farm. Tell them I say "Hi"

Good idea. Not much riding going on lately. Waiting on parts for both the KTM and the K75. If it doesn't snow I might take my KLX down to Aztec Sunday.

Hey Headshrinker! Do you you know Jed and Valerie Sharpe? Good friends of mine that work in the Chinle area part of the year.

I haven't met the Sharpes but would love to meet them. We've done a few projects in Chinle--and hopefully more to come.

This is good stuff! Thanks to everyone who's posted this far...

ah hah!!! Now I know who to blame for the huge rockfall that came down right about where you are standing. Anybody see that? Directly above the railroad tunnel. Wondering if they blasted unsafe teetering rocks or if it was natural??

Yeah- it was a natural rockfall on Nov. 18th - big white streak even visible from town. I believe the tailings train is still shutdown while they're cleaning up the debris at the tunnel's portal. 4corners chatter sounds good - Moab can certainly add some voices/bs to the regional noise

I started a web forum a whole back to do just this, but like all things, they either catch on or not. This site has traffic which is good for everyone.

We live in aztec, we wanted to go today, but burrrrr.

Here are the bikes:

I went to ABQ this weekend and had to stay the night due to all the snow. I stayed at ATeam's place at 7k feet. Was fun getting down the mountain!

Saturday morning, south of Farmington


While the GSA was getting the first service, I took out the RR as a demo...


It was slick coming down the mountain...


Anyone want to ride tomorrow? I've got Monday off...

I can't get out of our driveway anyway. Slick as snot.

I rode for about 3 hours today out at Pinon Mesa. A little slick in spots and a bit cold but otherwise epic traction. Unfortunately the Quad damage to single track keeps getting worse and worse out there.





I think there is more night time single track in my future
