    I'm headed that way, as I suspect are many. There is a small group of us who are going to do the TAT over to the four corners, and then pick up the COBDR from there to Steamboat. Should be great. I suspect we'll meet up with lots of guys on the way.

    Might meet some folks from So. Cal at halfway point. So others down that way may want to chime in also.

    Yeah, the old leg got tired of kicking the XR650R finally, Joel. Got a 2012 KTM 690 EnduroR and now on the Dark (or Orange) :lol3 side. I'm riding it up, so might see you guys on the way. I'll be taking some back roads but might have to detour to a main route for gas somewhere along the way. I'll PM you my phone and maybe we can touch bases once underway.

    To leave Sept. 6 or 7, camp plus some motel. Taking some of the scenic roads and part of Heart of the West Adventure Route:

    Ride is not technical but you should be experienced riding, maintaining and camping off bike.
