Hey Guys,
I'm getting excited about the ride. I was curious if you guys knew what the absolute lowest elevation we would ride this time. I'm going through my bike this weekend and it will be ready minus tires, jetting and any issues I might find.

If anyone has an extra bed the night before I'd be up for splitting the room with you. I'm planning on being in the area Friday night on getting acclimated to living above 200ft msl.

Lowest elevation will be about 5,000. ........highest, 13k.

I'll loop you in on the email string and you can ask the hotel question there as well.

Sorry dude, Charlie's House of Man is just not the acclimation I was looking for. Terry and his hippy entourage looks more enticing.

You rode a KLR John? I would have sold you mine. It was fully prepped for the mountains. I just didn't like the heavy weight and low ground clearance.

Big John, Just wanted to thank you and the entire RMAR organization for putting together another spectacular and challenging ride!! It was great to see the 2012 participants and meet the new riders.

The ride, once again, lived up to its' expectations. Gorgeous vistas, challenging trails, and opportunities to establish long lasting camaraderie.

For some the adventure continued after the ride was done when folks were trying to get home. Wild Bill and Mike, just to name a few, had quite the ordeal to get home.....

RMAR efforts to keep trails open to motorcycles is greatly appreciated! After speaking with some of the folks we met on the ride, it's evident that many folks are unaware of the considerable effort taking place to limit the ability of Adventure Riders to pursue their passion.

And, the new Bon Jovi is a fresh of breath air! I still can't believe his transformation from Mr. Grumpy to Mr. Happy. I know his demeanor concerned many of us as we were all waiting for him to snap

Thanks again for your efforts in putting the ride together!


Tom

2014 Date?

Gentlemen, I have been vicariously enjoying your pre-ride chatter knowing I had an awesome family vacation planned in conflict with the ride dates and thus could not go even if approved. If Big John wants to shoot me for asking about next year's ride that is completely understandable. Since I am well out of range I am going to be the first to ask so I can start the qualifying process and put the dates on my calendar. I look forward to seeing more about this year's ride and seeing the date announcement. I'm sorry to ask so soon but I want to go next year.
