Wonderful..

Kev has me a little worried but he's definitely thinking on BRP terms, we'll get closer to 40-50mpg figured on most of the terrain. It's just the sand that guzzles... I'm also thinking the 1 or 2 windshield washer bottles technique might work too...

Might work out.......I'll check after the B'day party for 4 tonight....bajeebus....my family seems to celebrate Christmas and New Years in a certain fashion......

Since I'm not socially acceptable anyway, I'll continue to think of the chapstick as the key lube.....how many sets are sleeping out?

What is the vision here? Out Friday PM, back Sunday? Sat?

A client just sent me this photo of his bike after missing a corner in Big Cottonwood.

BMW 1200 GSA. (Very clean)

Harcus, plan is leave 3PMish tommorrow, back Monday afternoon or evening. Leave and depart from the area.. Mostly pretty ADV light-medium bike ish higher speed. The stuff you/we all like to do. Some little areas of technical and off beaten paths and some exploring in the swell (the section I put together). SLC to Wellington, Wellington to Green River. May/likely head down to Moab. Likely Kokopelli to Grand Junction, Grand Junction to Vernal, and then Vernal back to SLC. Pretty ambitious of course, but all doable...

I would have been in with the Hick replacements but another guy is dragging us
Beast riders on the Skyline Drive tomorrow. Never been on it. Sounds scenic
but not too technical.

If it's what I'm thinking of, it's mostly graded gravel. 100mph if you feel sporty in spots.
