so much for putting this RR together. It's great and really insightful!
Lica , we are so ready to take your new bike for a test ride:) Post some pictures please.
Regarding TKC – 80 lesson learned the hard way - later in RR.
We've been waiting for you!
Can you believe that Lica has a shinier bike than Osito now????

And covering the best parts of the TAT, too.
I'm hoping to relaunch, oops I mean restart, my Western TAT trip next year.
Nice to see you! Hope your ribs are healed up.
Oh, be careful - your favorite step is even worse this year than it was in 2012
I'll have some pics/screen caps for you on day 12...

Thanks for writing up another one Kelly!
Thanks for joining us again. How's the leg doing?
hope it healed quickly!
Yeah - I gave the Voice of Reason to redog1 last year...I might have made a huge tiny mistake.

Have you had a chance to check out the Americas Cup boats. ?
Yes, Colorado is worthy of a return trip! The TAT just skims CO. There's a lot more to see.
We got a little more this time, but still missed a bunch.
Nope, haven't looked at the boats at all! I forgot all about the Amer. cup, actually.
It's been a bit of a bust.

It has to be an awesome video. I was going to pass on it (riding BB) I'm getting a bit too close to 60, and/or, I need a smaller bike.
However,, if you guys can ride it two up on a 990
, I've got to suck it up (with my woefully inadequate skills) and give it a shot..
Thanks for posting, I've read all your previous RRs, always entertaining and informative.
haha, that little bit has probably made a lot of folks dig a little deeper...
But, it's worth it for Black Bear! This was our 2nd time.
It's soooo beautiful, definitely give it a shot.
There are just a few tough spots, and it's mostly that they mess with your mind...

happy to have you along for this one, too
Wait til you see how a 500 lb trials bike does in Moab!!
Yay, hi Steve!

Heh, you don't want BigWan's tips -
they're things like - Don't slow down!
p.s. I actually prefer dirt to street...
cars are dangerous!!
