    Yes, nice vid. Would someone be kind enough to identify the single track in the vid?

    I usually call them Modette's Mystery ride. At one point, about 8 riders were huddled around a map trying to figure out where we were.......what an awesome ride! What an adventure!

    Thanks, good info. I'll (and a buddy) be in Ouray during this events duration and will likely run into RMAR groups many times. It seems the immediate area lacks single track (or non jeep use) and I'm having trouble finding a trail I'm pretty sure was near silverton. Any good websites listing trails in the area?

    Still looking for a place front range to park a toyota truck and 12' box trailer for the weeks of July 17th through the 30th. Coming out for the rally but want to ride some beforehand. Have one taker for a place farther west, but would like to minimize the truck time and maximize the bike time. :freaky

    PM me if you can help.


    Cheers Rob

    Driving up to RMAR in my Sportsmobile with a trailer and two bikes in tow. I am actually flying back home for a week between RMAR and Westfest. My wife will be joining me for Westfest. I plan on parking my van at the Santa Fe airport for the week in between but am looking for a safe place to park the bike trailer for a week in New Mexico, Taos or Santa Fe would be preferred. It is a small three rail trailer and will have a DR200 and a XR650R tied down to it. Certainly willing to compensate with cash, food or good whisk(e)y or barley pops. :beer

    East Fork near the top of Lizard Head Pass, heading back to Bolam/Durango Mtn Resort is a good one. Pole Creek and Lost Creek (sp?) just over Stoney Pass are the two main ones on that side (I haven't ridden them yet..but look good). Calico Trail outside Rico is an epic one, but a decent ass kicker. There are also a few other good ones around Hermosa Park..

    Today the wife and I were going to take a walk with the dogs in the Santa Fe Natl. Forest. We found that the DOT had closed off the road and would not allow anybody up the hill, due to the extreme fire danger.

    So my question about our event is....... Is this still a go or sorta touch-n-go concerning riding in Colorado?

    The central southwest ( Colorado)part of the rockies, where Silverton is located, seems to stay moderately wet. I the last 25 years we have visited, it has always been very green, with rain plenty fullness. That said, anything can happen.
