FYI this passed this year:

HB316 allows those driving both motorcycles and bicycles to proceed through a red light which they determine does not detect their presence after waiting at least 90 seconds provided it can be done safely. It also clarifies when roadway authorities may reasonably prohibit bicycles from using the roadway and that they must provide an alternative route. A caveat: this is only an “affirmative defense” which means you can still be ticketed, but can have the charge dismissed after arguing your case in front of the judge, and we must review next legislative session. For details, visit le.utah.gov/~2013/bills/static/HB0316.html

Anyone want to ride my VFR800 to PHX?

I've got a buyer who doesn't want to do the Fly N Ride, so I'm looking for someone trustworthy to take her down there. He'll pay your ticket from PHX back to SLC, might even pay for gas. You'll ride this beauty,with heated grips mind you!

PM if you're looking for an adventure.

Didn't you just buy that thing?

Want to, yes. Can I? It depends.

What sort of time frame is the buyer looking at? Sounds like a lot of fun.

I'm planning to ride to Yellowknife, NT, in late June, then roll a bit west and south via the Mackenzie & Laird Hwys back down to Jasper. Any 'tards been up to the NT? and if so what are the good bits I should know?

I'm coming with you if I can get MichaelAngelo's bike for the trip, but we'll have to drop it off in Phoenix to the new buyer, so i hope that's too far out of the way!

I think a couple guys are going to head out for a mellow big bike ride on Sunday. Not sure where yet....was thinking about heading up towards the uintas, but haven't looked at the weather yet. Want it to be mellow....the bikes have anakee type tires on them. Any ideas? Anybody up for a ride?

planning to ride tomorrow (Saturday) somewhere, possibly west desert or a trip down to Green River or similar area for just one day of riding leaving tonight. West desert will be somewhat easy / cherry creek, green river would be more technical with some other KTM riders. If anyone is interested in going let me know! Sunday won't work because I have to be back in PC by 2 unless these was something mellow and melted out not too far away.. Otherwise strong chance we'll be in Fruita / Rabbit Valley next weekend as well for more dirtbike style riding...

I sent my ECU in for a reflash update. I don't think it will be back in time.
You're making a bigger deal about the tires than you need to. Those will
go about anywhere except the Warpman salt/mud flats.

I'm also trying to help my son with his first income property remodel. What we do for the little darlings.
