It's not customary here, and despite best efforts to publicize it as legal if passed, you'd be placing yer life in dangerous hands by lanesplitting here.

That's not true. People adapt. Every day.

Hello, Ms. Beacom,


A good question came up online, from a skeptic/critic. Would Mr. Tancredo be willing to speak with folks at Dora's or the Stagecoach, who have no intention of either donating, or riding along? Just ask'n.

Clark
AKA "Duckie"



Clark,


There will be lots of events coming up for people to ask Tom questions. The ride is to have a good time and support Tom. Tom is always happy to take questions from voters, but this event was not designed as a forum. Please encourage your friends to come to something that is set up more appropriately to take their questions.


Best,


Kristina Beacom
Finance Director
Tancredo for Governor

Here's a thought: Get a few of ADV's Colorado inmates together, and invite Tancredo to answer questions on issues that matter to us all, be it dirt riding, pavement or dual-sport? You should KNOW where he stands as potential Governor - and he could most likely use an education. He can't help, if he's uninformed, eh?

If local inmates decide to call for a meeting, I'll make sure he gets the invitation. Deal?

He damn-well better show up..... and ride, too.

And no, I won't loan him my rainsuit, either! Iff'n he wants a job at taxpayer expense, he can buy his own.

Hmmm, maybe we can "convert" him to the dark side...

...and get him out dual sport riding?

Maybe we could invite to ride up Rollins Pass Road, and address his opinion and platform for addressing the closure of the tunnel?

Worth a try?

Cheers!

Anything is possible, I guess........

I'm heading out in a bit....... should be @ Dora's by 9:AM, just in case any other inmates are going. Yes, I'm bringing the rainsuit.

No pics this time.....forgot the camera.

But I did get to bend Tancredo's ear bit, and I asked him about off-road access. I think the Dual-Sport riders would like to hear his response. Consider the gauntlet tossed. Ask him your questions, and judge him on the answers. He's willing to meet with ADV'ers..... get a few of you together, and negotiate a date & time.

As I suspected, anyone showing up at either Dora's or the Stagecoach could have talked with him. Both locations were open to the public, and Boyles was the only 'media' around. Tancredo speaks for himself, and is accessible.

It was a very long, and dangerous trek, certainly. But everyone made it safely.
