I always liked riding Rogers Canyon when I lived in Laramie. That and Sybille.

Yup. Rogers Canyon is a nice quick diversion. 20 minutes up and back, but reasonably twisty. Sybille is nice too.

Hope you're doing well my friend!

Hey Morgan! Good to see you pop in here. Sadly, I've moved on from Laramie too. Not many twisty roads near Elizabeth, CO, but there are great fur-covered chicanes everywhere!

So pretty today i had to ride up Plum Creek / Skull Creek and then some slab to the SD border. Saw a bald eagle feasting on road kill on the way home, and got passed by a bull elk on the way up :) Great day; hope the weather holds awhile longer.

Finally a day off...

Time for one last blast of single track at Inyan Kara before the winter sets in. Already thinking of AZ, Baja or Nevada desert. It will be a long wait till April.

Baja would be awesome, a friend of mine here was talking about flying down there and renting bikes in some kind of lodging-inclusive package. Probably too spendy for me but i'd love to ride down there sometime, either south then west through the desert or west across to Washington then down the coast. Dreaming of spring already.

Nice group! Very few Wyomingites in general.

30 years in Wyoming, off and on. Life long motorcyclist. "Tent space" available when weather permits. Got a cabin on the Forest boundary above Dubois. Nice view and access to Forest Roads. Our local rides include; Togwatee Pass, Teton Park, Teton Pass, Snake River Canyon, Hoback Canyon and the south entrance to Yellowstone. Great graded dirt roads too; Union Pass, Brooks Lake/Barber's Point, Double Cabins, Granite Creek Hot Springs, Flagstaff Road, Grassy Lakes Road, MacDugal Gap....



Love the riding round Cody; Sylvan Pass/Wapiti Valley, Chief Joseph , Beartooth...Wind River Canyon, Dunraven Pass.

Ah yes, Rodger's Canyon...ran it hard in a modified Datsun 510 when I needed to blow off the pressures of grad school. Got a little scary...decreasing radius turns.

Been able to see G bears nearly every ride this year.

Nice, Falconspeed! I grew up in Riverton and my dad grew up logging around Dubois, so the Wind Rivers have always been my stomping grounds. Haven't been up there in years though. I really need to get back up in the Union Pass area.

Any central WY guys on here? I'm dumping a ton of (waaaay overdue) well deserved time and money into the KLR this winter so I can ride a whole lot more next summer.

I'm about 30 miles east of you in Rolling Hills. ( I assume you're in Casper) tomorrow morning I'll be trading my 2007 Interceptor on a 2013 DR650. There's some good dirt roads and trails around here, we should hit them some time.

I am in Casper. Aren't there some dunes somewhere north of Rolling Hills? I haven't explored much out there.

There are some dunes, about a mile from my house. The downside is that they are leased to a riding club here so you have to pay for a membership to ride on them depsite them being BLM land. When I moved out here it wasn't so and I spent may hours out there after work during the nicer weather days.

What big mods are on the agenda for this winter?

No big mods per se, just long overdue maintenance.
