    Sean, If I can get one person to go with me it's a trip. I'v been wanting to do this for years and now is the time :D I figured a year is loads of time for the intersted to get them selves in shape:deal

    btw I know V01MX will drive that far so I guess it's a go :1drink

    Been to Moab / St George / Grand Junction / Fruita 10 times or so since 1999 - all bicycling, but want to take my MC next time. If you have questions about the area, PM me. It is beautiful and like you say, "the ride of a lifetime"!

    Rider, I won't be joining you on this one: while the advantage of being a high school teacher is 9 weeks of riding in the summer, the drawback is that I can't do more than a weekend ride in May... It says so on my contract... :deal

    I'm thinking two days to get there, five days riding, two days back. Toss in a day for some must see or must ride along the way. Travel on the weekends and ride during the week that will cut down the weekend traffic. :D

    Thinking of mixing Camping with Hotel's? All open for suggestion :ear

    I'll be building a trailer to haul six bikes. Five if Dan ships his Gold Wing up :rofl

    Do a quick check for when "Jeep Week" is next year. You will want to avoid it at all costs... crazy busy on the roads, trails and in the town (people book a year out for this week...)

    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
