We just tried to book a room for this Thursday and Friday and they were full. I'm not sure what's going on down there right now, no mountain bike events that I can see. Glad you found a place.

Steady rain in Gunnison and surrounding area today, and some snow up high. Looks like that will be the story for the next several days. That's ok, we need all of it.

I know they got at least 25" above Lake City out of the last few cycles, and we've gotten something like that in the West Elks too.

I realize that, so do you take the CT over to it? I noticed a road that came up to the CT from the 114 side. I couldn't remember if the CT was leagal, or rideable from Marshall.

Ok, just I case someone else wants to know in the future, a 110/80-18 Heidenau K60 Scout does indeed fit very well on a 2001 Super Sherpa. I also put a 90/90-21 on the front. We have the high fender.

The Sherpa manual says the stock tire was a 4.10/18. This chart says that a 4.10 is comparable to a 120/80. Since I'm going with a 110/80, it should fit - right?

Good to know. I almost never use them for a post like that one, don't know why I did that time. Anyway, 110-80-18, I guess if it doesn't fit, I can add a link to my almost brand new chain.
