    Seeing if anyone is interested in joining a regular (monthly?) breakfast meetup followed by a 3-5 hour ride (gravel/paved).

    Just trying to judge interest and see if we can set a first weekend - maybe even this Saturday?

    Location for breakfast and ride can be determine once we get an idea of who’s coming.

    Example - eat in Gateway and ride to Moab and back.

    Sounds great. Unfortunately, I'm on the front range. But if I make it over there, I'm certainly in.

    I'm in but this Saturday may not work, getting back into riding after some health shit. Been doing couple hour dual sports. But always up for a breakfast, probably could do it early this Saturday. I'm up in Glade Park.

    Thanks for the response from everyone - looks like the interest is there. However - Sounds like a busy weekend for most - maybe best to postpone 1-2 weeks.

    Anyone interested in a shorter dual sport ride Saturday? I was thinking up through the monument to Glade Park and the across part of Pinon Mesa coming down/back to DS road, 40 mile loop from the Glade Park store.

    Sounds good - I am on call and will know by the end of work tomorrow if I have any patients to tend to.

    I was up there last week and the gravel roads in the NF are getting pretty soft/sandy and with all of the hunter traffic it was a little sketchy for me on my F800gs. I know if need to put more aggressive tires on and will hopefully get that done next week.
