    This weekend was a real kick in the pants, as this was my first real weekend of the year, riding single-track and dual-sport loops. The wife and I camped outside of Buena Vista, overlooking the Collegiates. It really got me stirred up, looking forward to West Fest!!!!! The wife is really riding that TTR230 very well. She did 40 miles with me on Saturday.

    John,

    I hope you realize how much we all think you are doing a great job and thank you for taking on this monumental task. :clap

    Your pictures look kind of familiar. Guess we missed you by one weekend. :lol3

    Appreciate the kind words..... Yep, it takes some effort and work, but at the end of the day.....we are bringing together some great folks for some great riding and some "fishing stories".

    Everyone plan to show up and just have a barrel of fun!!!!

    John

    Is it a mix of big bike and small bike stuff?
    I'll be on a Honda NC700X.
    Looking to ride as much "Adventurey" stuff as I can.

    Those are some good routes, just glancing most of it looks county/forest rd so bigger bikes.
    Some great single and ATV/jeep tracks in the Big Red Park area that will be on the MVUM

    Norm,

    I'm going to pick your brain for good Jeep routes, as it's possible I might still be with only a street bike come time for Westfest.

    I'm camping at the KOA but not doing the rally thing, just hanging with a few friends over a beer at camp... eating in town, etc.
    My exploring will be in the Jeep Rubicon - unless I find a bike between now and then

    I can give you some good Jeep stuff. Are you going the way of Ed?

    No, I just bought it as a Winter rig and haven't replaced the Husqvarna or Africa Twin yet.
    Work has gotten in the way of several offroad trips so far, and isn't showing signs of easing up and encouraging me to buy something I can't use :D

    Excellent stuff! I've been out of this thread for awhile and busy with other projects / out of the state but will jump back in with ideas before it happens.

    We're selling our Steamboat house right now but looks like we'll be living in it during July and I'll pop in to this rally. Look forward to meeting some of you then at the party on the Yampa!
