    He he ... Them there pictures are in my secret vault. :-)

    BTW - that picture Adventure girl posted of piggy parts getting done in the disco, that was the last time I ate anything like that, a.k.a. the end of the piggy years. Sigh!

    Looking forward to spring more than ever before.

    Hey, last evening's movie and BBQ event was a lot of fun and I'm glad Tramontana and I went - he's a cheap date.
    Thanks to GJ KTM and to the folks of the Band of Brothers for putting this fun evening together for us all.
    Two thumbs up!

    we play at Palisadea HS at two in the Championship today for the WSL, won by one last night.:eek1 Hopefully get a win today, play Olathe, we have beat them twice, by 10 and the 3. Should be a good game. If we win we will host round two next week at home!

    i am coming this way as soon as basketball is over to ride, stopped by MC accesories this am and picked up some needed stuff.

    Yeah, that MC Accessory store can be hazardous to your credit card. :-)
    Would love to share a meal with you guys next time you're around. Sorry I missed your previous message till just now.

    I used cash! Wife tells me not to take the CC into any bike shops or gun shops!:lol3
    I will get hold of you when I come down next time. Kiddo has some baseball games that way and we are going to ride Rabbit Valley and the desert over Spring Break.

    Any locals want to head out to White Wash and ride Dead Cow this Friday? Long shot, I know... but I have the day off!

    I'll be on a WR450, haven't done it before but have GPS tracks!

    Well, keep me posted! I can work with that, I have another friend that is also a 'Maybe'. I probably won't head out there solo, so the ride isn't 100% at this point.

    Thanks for the trail intel, I was hoping the ice had melted off by now... I take it the ice didn't cause any problems? I have a buddy that ride it with ice over the ledges and it wasn't very fun. :rofl

    It's warming up this week, if nobody can make it I don't mind waiting another week or 2 for the ice to go away.

    Suggestions from the GJ crew. I'm headed to GJ/Fruita this weekend to help out a friend. Planning on doing a little riding too. I'll have a beginner rider on a TW200 with me who prefers dirt roads rather than ST. any suggestions for rides? Thanks!

    That day rocked. I am never going to forget how easy Rich made that section look. That canyon was one of the harder things I have ridden in recent memory.

    BTW... I am headed to the Western Slope for some riding next week. I am planning on JQS for Thursday and Friday. Then something further west on Saturday and Sunday. I have invited our Moab Comrade. I will be bringing my Girlfriend who is a C rider. Wanna come play? :ear
