    2 friends of mine in farmington bought Africa twins. Got to take one for. Quick spin. Quit nice, although I wasn't able to take it on the dirt.

    Doesn't look steep until you pay attention to the speed and altimeter. Looks like 300 is perfect.
    I was down to Aztec mx last Sunday with my son. Lots of good beginner st.

    Just keeping the thread alive. Hope all of you are doing well. If any of you want to go break stuff up in the Dome canyons let me know. As usual I’m still a weekday rider.

    The San Juan Trail Riders are having a fundraiser to help support their legal defense to help keep the Dolores/Rico riding areas open. It is March 10th from 3-6 at David's private motorcycle museum in Farmington. They are asking that people RSVP for food but I am certain they would rather you show up and donate money if you are unable to RSVP. Please check the San Juan Trail Riders web page and facebook page for information. David doesn't open his museum often so this is a great time to check out his collection of old husquvarnas and such. It is a pretty awesome collection. There are going to be some signed jerseys for silent auction and whatnot. A good time will be had by all. There will be door prizes and a gentleman who won the Baja 1000 back in the day (Bill Silverthorn I belive).

    I'll still be in sweet 'n sour panda land. I renewed my membership just now at least though. Never been to see those motocycles. Looks like it would be nice.

    That was fun. I hope the San Juan Trail Rider's were able to add to their funds.

    Man, I so wanted to go to this event. Unfortunately, we had prior commitments. I have wanted to see Dave’s collection for a long time, meeting up with my fellow San Juan riders would have been a great time as usual. I Hope there was a good turn out and I apologize for not being there.
