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. Gives me more motivation to get the WR plated sooner. Otherwise it is the DR.

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!

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.

Yes Sir.....that would be Tyler, the younger boy. Hopefully, he will be riding the XR650R with us....but the Track Travel Schedule might interrupt.

He spoke highly of your daughter and mentioned it to me as well.

I think it was more hype then anything to come down. True by that part of the day your arms are tired. However if I skip Top of the World then I'll be fine as far as going to Moab. I'll lead the Mary's Trail ride if people would like out by White Wash. Then return trip maybe do the UP hill Rose Garden climb...hmmmm Worst case an attempt.

Let's talk about that side trip, so I can build that into the routing.
