Tell them that you think have scabies or lice. They'll be happy to tell you to stay home.

Big Bike Ride, my ass!!

That was no "women and children's" ride, Big John. Thanks for boosting my confidence, not to mention my increased heart rate the entire ride.....

Louise - I'm trying to figure out how to contact you....

I'll bet that ride and your self-determination to finish......yep, I will bet that in some positive way, it has changed your life forever.

I will bet the sense of accomplishment, tackling fears, etc......has made you a more confident person in every area of your life.

I love to help riders grow their skills 2x and 3x in a matter of hours, tackling fears and overcoming.....a tremendous thing to watch!!!!

Done! Just sent you a message.

That ride made me realize the word "easy" means something completely different to other people... ;)

It was awesome, though, and I'm looking forward to riding with you again.

Hey, if I'm going to ride three or four days, I'll definitely do a day of pavement. Find me and I'll ride with you!

Amazing terrain, but you got be on your A game at times! The whole top area is like one big playground and they do groom the main trails to keep the road obvious.
+1 to that!

We rode Bolan Pass last year and it was a ball, and the view at the top was spectacular!

I'll be bringing the KLX450R, plus Storm's 250 on the trailer. I'll have room for one more Denver area bike as well.....

All true - I think most of my fears were due to not having a low enough first gear, and bottoming out on my low-rider, though. Not quite the right setup for that ride..... :)
