There are plenty of them and they are just down the street from our base camp.

Jim at Red Mtn will get back to you.....hang in there. This time of year, they tend to get remote with Snowmobile tours.


....
Reservations made finally!!!!!

I'll be there from the 29th to the 5th

I've stayed at the Triangle before. Nice and simple, clean rooms, had reasonably good wi-fi. More than most ADVer's are worthy of!

Hi John
I resemble that remark!
I've only been kicked out of one trailer park in my whole life and
F8 isn't crippled up anymore (knockonwood), at 37,000 miles, she's just getting broken in

Hey Cody, no I don't, we really wanted to go on down but that was on the 50 passes ride a couple of years ago. We turned around at the top and headed off to Corkscrew. Noticed the new bike in the sig line, now you have two that I really like

But upon closer investigation.........!!!!!!!!!!


This is not for the faint of heart.

I rode it on my Honda 650 two years ago and did just fine.












This is the Big Dog group I rode with in 2010....and my friend, Bob, at the first switchback.
