    Hey, try NSFW. He came in for RMAR last year, and he comes out from So Cal. If he says he's not gonna make it, call bullshit on that! We want him to come out and play again!

    +1, Good idea. He said he thought he was going to make Westfest this year so maybe get with him. Also if you post in the regional section for CA there may be someone making a trip out here with room for a bike.

    I hope you can make it let me know if you need anything (if I had anything comparable to a EXC Id offer it up, but I think most of my stuff is lacking compared to that:eek1:lol3)

    In and paid. looking forward to it. Pearl Pass kicked my butt badly on a klr. May not want to revisit that ride.
    I plan on riding up Thurs if anyone is going then, or can bring a van with tools, lifts, compressor if that's helpful at all.

    I plan on riding up Thursday also. Btw--I feel so bad for all of you still stuck in the snow. Not to rub it in or anything, but... I'm working in San Diego right now, and I rode last Sunday into the mountains. Sadly, they are not gorgeous, glorious Colorado mountains, but they're free of snow and full of sun. I can't wait to get back to CO in July and ride our passes!

    So not in the Rockies but............................

    Some pictures from the Canyonlands Adventure Ride from last weekend. Kind of a mini-Westfest in Utah, some great practice slinging burgers:lol3

    A great group of people riding just over 500 miles in 3 days through vast canyons, amazing desert scenery and some good food and beer in-between.

    Lynda (ElleDubs) & I had so much fun at the Canyonlands fandango we just had to sign up for this one as well.

    To show our commitment, we both bought new (to us) bikes this week - a KTM 300 XC for me and a CRF 150RB for her.

    I guess that means we'll be aiming at trails rather than dual-sport!

    In. Stoked. If WestFest is half as good as Canyonlands Adventure ride we'll have a ball.

    Now I have 3 months to learn how to ride single-track :D

    Glad to see you guys are planning on attending. It'll be nice to visit again. Westfest should be (at least!!!) half as much fun as the CL ride was. Ben knows better than I, but for the limited amount of ridding I've done there, there are a variety of trails available for all skill levels. You guys'll enjoy riding your new bikes there.

    Ben and I are meeting in Buena Vista tomorrow (Firday) night and Tomas is supposed to be driving up and meeting us early Saturday morning. We're going to ride the area all day Saturday for some . . . "pre-event" riding. At least I'll be able to get some more riding in on my new (at least to me) 530 EXC. The little bit of riding I got in on it at the Swell just wasn't enough. So this should be fun. I think Ben is planning on taking some photo's and posting them on this thread. It'll help give an idea of what you can anticipate.

    See you there . . .
