    I would be happy to lead a more dirty ride this weekend if there is interest, and of coarse beer for the masses as desired.

    I'm in. I'll most likely be riding the DR650, leaving Grand Haven late morning.

    The weather wasn't too bad and Clebner was a great guide as usual. We rode Friday and Saturday and spent a little time at Lake Ann Brewing Company. And Rob, we didn't lose any helmets :lol3.

    When I originally came to this location, I parked and placed my helmet a little to close to the edge....When I went to move my bike, my foot accidentally grazed the helmet, and it started to roll. Not even a big kick, just a slight brush and the helmet never stopped rolling :lol3 It was sad, but a little entertaining to watch as well.

    My helmet went from where my bike is, all the way down to the bottom of that valley of trees.....:arg

    I'm thinking it will be this coming spring when a recovery attempt is put into action. That area is called the indian peaks, and its all wilderness unfortunately so I'd have to get in there on foot. It's going to be a long recovery, all day minimum. The trail that I'm on used to be the original route to the west from Denver via locomotive until the construction of the Moffat Tunnel in 1927, and is a site of on-going controversy ever since "parts" of the route were shutdown in the 60's to ohv use.

    I figured it would be on foot, but I know you're a hiker also. Hope it wasn't the Rossi replica sunburst lid ya tossed down there.

    Luckily it wasn't the Rossi, or the Hayden. It was an old KBC that was retired a few years back. Still kind of a bummer, I'd been saving all my old helmets since I was 15 with the intention of mounting them all in the garage on display. Thought it would be cool :lol3 But now after losing the kbc that makes 3 that are missing..... so that idea might be nixxed. The KBC, an old Bieffe Capirossi replica and an old Arai Schwantz replica are nowhere to be found. I still have all my old gloves though from the past 17yrs of street riding so it's not to bad, including a pair of Nicky Hayden pro models from his rookie years. Kind of weird things to save:photog
