mid life crisis??

First I buy the KLR now you're tempting me with a trip to Moab. I think you're a bad influence cousin.

interested... I already try to do this trip but did not find enough riders (some already been there, others don't have enough time...)
I was planning something around the TCAT, but I could change my mind (don't need organisation to ride a part of the Tcat from where I'm living).
For 10 days, I'm pretty sure I could be in... if a place still available when I'll say OK

This is a for sure trip since VO1MX and myself are going. It will be a numbers game for transportation I figure 4 bikes and 4 riders per vehicle so the 5th person in will have to wait till there's more interested. I would like to see 8 guys going on this run

I know! Couldn't ask for more. I downloaded them and had a look at a few and they looked like good routes :)

I was amazed that the files had all the speed and time properties, you can makes the entire holiday from those files.. I am curious how the klr would make out on some of those, trails... some of those pictures worried me, if i was to ride them... but the word is...... if you can do it, I can... maybe not as fast but I can....

any info yet Ted?

Still waiting on info packages I sent for As for the trails we would have to choose some milder runs for this trip with some "doable" side runs :) An avrage rider on a small bike still couldn't do what a skilled rider on a heavy bike can or vice versa, so with that in mind we have to plan this trip so as not to put riders at risk if at all possible. There's so much to choose from that when I get 5 people 100% commited we will all have to sit down a few times to go over our riding plans. I may have started the ball rolling but the trip will be decided by all involved. I just think it's better that way
