    We're leaving from SLC/PC Friday around 3-4pm and chasing strawberry to Reservation Ridge, then on to 9 mile via Argyle. It'll be lean and mean, not a lot of social time. we'll ride till dark and then camp. If anyone wants to tag along for the walsburg/strawberry section and then bail out and slab home then feel free.

    Wonderful.. :D

    Kev has me a little worried but he's definitely thinking on BRP terms, we'll get closer to 40-50mpg figured on most of the terrain. It's just the sand that guzzles... I'm also thinking the 1 or 2 windshield washer bottles technique might work too...

    Harcus, plan is leave 3PMish tommorrow, back Monday afternoon or evening. Leave and depart from the area.. Mostly pretty ADV light-medium bike ish higher speed. The stuff you/we all like to do. Some little areas of technical and off beaten paths and some exploring in the swell (the section I put together). SLC to Wellington, Wellington to Green River. May/likely head down to Moab. Likely Kokopelli to Grand Junction, Grand Junction to Vernal, and then Vernal back to SLC. Pretty ambitious of course, but all doable...

    I would have been in with the Hick replacements but another guy is dragging us
    Beast riders on the Skyline Drive tomorrow. Never been on it. Sounds scenic
    but not too technical.:dunno

    If it's what I'm thinking of, it's mostly graded gravel. 100mph if you feel sporty in spots.

    Definitely interesting. Sounds like a good ride. Particularly so since Ryman took care of Hick of us. And it only cost a beer! :D

    like, OMG, I'm like LMFAO so gag me w/ a kickstand! "Death Sport" circa 1978 is even better than "Cycle South" if you want a good moto movie! You can stream it on netflux or maybe find it on youtube...:lol3
