Wow. That's a big dive south, to head back North for you guys. The COBDR is going to look like the LA freeway.

For those in Colorado (or others who can't spend more than one day at the event -- ride in and out) the vendor area and test ride bike activity is free.

In my case I can make a day of it by leaving Denver early and arriving home late. I am on an SMT with decidedly street tires, so not going over hill and dale on the off road paths.

More fun for those that do!

Good. If you start the COBDR on the 7th, you'll be one day behind me. I'll know somebody will be a little behind me when mine breaks. Just look for this on the side of any hill:


Hopefully it won't look like this at the time:

Anybody know......

Does anyone know if there are any kind of "passes" required to travel, park or camp along the UTBDR or the COBDR? In Washington we have the Discover Pass that can be required in some locations. I never thought to ask about Utah or Colorado.

Yes if you have any problems we will be coming. We will probably not take the easy routes around so we will be on the regular route. We won't be starting at Cortez until early afternoon.

I'm going to do what I can to take the standard route as well.

I was a little worried about fuel for the COBDR, so I found a way to add a gallon.

Why do I get the feeling that was cheaper to do than the RotopaX container and mount I just bought...

Guessing that's some sort of automotive/truck/ATV bracket and container?

The gas can is from Reda: http://www.redagascan.com It's designed to fit in the saddlebag of a Harley.

The bracket was a sheet of 1/8th aluminum this past Wednesday, followed by a few quality days with a vise, a grinder, and a BFH.

I was thinking about the Rotopax as well, or the Kolpin: http://www.basspro.com/Kolpin-ATV-Fu...SELL_THUMBNAIL

I just couldn't figure out how to mount one on my bike. I wanted to carry the extra gas as low as possible on the bike to keep stress off of the subframe. The Reda was the only gas can that I could find that looked like it would work. I think a standard 2-gallon would work just as well on the foot peg, but all of the ones I could find in the stores had the new, modern, very crappy seal on the top. In the end, the Reda looked like the best option for me.

I dunno about that bungee cord there, Orangecicle. . Perhaps a web strap or cam loop would keep that can on for more than a mile in offroad mode.

I know. Working on a better solution.
