- Steve, next year let's clarify "big bike/easy ride"
- Pat, let me know what they find on your bike.
- Sara, keep Gumby smiling
- Keith, stay cool going back to OK
- George, sorry I missed you as I left... but I had no idea how long it would take you to finish your biscuits and gravy.

And a big thanks to everyone who either advised, coached, smiled or encouraged me along the way!

Brad
It was nice meeting you. I really enjoyed hanging out with other two wheeled vagabonds. I hope to see everyone again next year!

I made it home this evening after 14 days and 4850 miles.

Thanks for supporting us again Woody!! We missed picking on you for sure!! hope all gets better for you. Zach did a great job of working with the riders, tightening spokes and even stole my Scrambler cause he thought it needed wheels just cause they wobbled a little! Can't wait to get it out of hock and try 'em out!
Hope to see you for sure next year!
Thanks!!!!!! RMAR Board.

From the top of Black Bear, which proved to be a bit too much for the Super Tenere's.

* This statement really begs for an extended explanation.
* Two up on a S10 over Black Bear?
* How much Pushing, Pulling and Hiking was involved?

Only pushed it on the steps. You forgot cussing and praying. I'm not sure those two go together, but the both happened almost simultaneously.

She would have walked more on Stony Pass, but a guy on a 4-wheeler gave her a ride.

My little story.

Well, it was another awesome event. My family and I had a blast and will be back!!

My little story.....

Went for a fantastic ride on Friday with some old and new friends. Silverton to Lake City via Cinnamon Pass, back over Engineer to California to Hurricane and back to Silverton. Awesome day, awesome people, and awesome views. As we got to Engineer Pass, which is one of my favorite views anywhere, I knew that I wanted to take everyone over to the little point just past the official top of the pass. Those that have been there know it, 360 degree views that are an absolute must see. As we pull in, I am once again struck with the beauty of the area.....











As I am looking around, I notice an odd random piece of paper over in the scree rocks. I walked over to pick it up,
as I thought that it might be a piece of trash......but there saw a rock holding it down, that seemed odd.



Sheet music of some kind.............



Totally made my day!

To whomever placed this, my sincere thank-you for doing this......I shared it with several other riders as they
came up, and everyone was touched. Thanks!!


A final shot or two.....


Thanks Abbi for everything!



Thanks Silverton, see you next year!
