Mac I will be in for this event. Hopefully we will not have anyone in the hospital and I will be able to return from Moab by bike and not transporting someone back to Denver.

If the better half has no plans for that last week of Spring Break I am in. :DGives me more motivation to get the WR plated sooner. Otherwise it is the DR.

In!

Mac's the lead on this one.....but I am definitely in!

I am eager to do the ride on my newly plated YZ426. I will be traveling light and fast if anyone wants to join me in the front group. No bags on the bike this time.

Rose Garden....here I come!

On your XR650R? This should be fun.

Considering this run, did it on a borrowed bike (from Fruita to Moab, but not back) a few months ago. Wouldn't mind doing it on the new ride, but seriously, up Rose Garden, yuck... :puke1

Don't worry, the route will not be UP Rose Garden. The route will be going down, and there will be a bypass option. If you do go down Rose Garden, you'd certainly have the option to go back up and down again, if you possess a certain level of sanity.

I'm with Modette on this decision. I love my YZ but a properly geared Pig has got to be the Jeep of the Motorcycle world (trials bikes excluded, of course). Mine will tractor up most inclines.

I am also hoping that my two boys, TDBiker and BLBiker56, can join for the ride as well. Living in Gunnison, they will have a short commute.

My daughter met one of your boys, she is a thrower on the track team also. But she is a medical redshirt this year, blew her knee out in October.
