    Oh wow! I'm amazed they groom the roads. With what? Similar to a groomer you would see at a ski resort? Post a pic if you have one. Especially Ophir.

    Ophir doesn't get groomed. Pretty big slide path in the winter. Bolam pass is groomed by one of the local snowmobile groups..i heard they actually maintain it all the way out past Dunton toward the Fall Creek side and toward Norwood as well..pretty big interconnect with fuel on either side..the Divide rd on the Uncompahgre Plateau also is groomed by another group. Yes, usually it is a small version of what ski areas use, although I used guide sleds on Vail Pass and one of our snowcats was a full size one from Vail's fleet...
    But enough about winter, lets think of summer riding! Actually in Moab right now so I can scratch that itch and get some time on Poison Spider!

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

    I'll be there but I gotta stick to pavement.

    You know we all love your buns!



    Oh and Donation done.

    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!

    +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.....

    I'm in. I'll be throwing my KLR in the back of the pickup. New to the group and looking forward to meeting everyone.

    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..... :)
