Then, if anyone wants to do an Arizona loop mid winter, let me know. I'll either be in the Phoenix area, or Palm Springs area all winter.
There is no god skiing in either of those places.

I may be up for the mid-winter thing. Do you have dates lined up?

October would be mid-October.

Winter I won't know until I find my next work assignment in a couple months.

Skiing will occur in the early summer on the PNW volcanoes.

KTM Rally Sept '13 in Steamboat

As all good riders of orange will remember, the 10th annual KTM Adv Rally is in Steamboat from 13 thru 15 September.

Here is the link to the announcement...

http://www.ktmorangeevents.com/EventPage.aspx

This is the typical rally format where you are forced to meet people you may not know, ride with them on trails you may never have seen, attempt to get lost, return to camp hot, dirty & sweaty for an evening of BS, drinks, & steaks, etc. Anyone can attend on any color bike but it is required that you are not offended by the aforementioned behavior.

I have a reserved a campsite with a few extra spaces in the Steamboat campground which is within a few miles of rally central at the Grand. They have showers, etc.

I have also laid out a path to Steamboat along the North Slope weaving into Wyoming to drop into Steamboat with minimal pavement. At least is exists on the topos. We shall see.

Some events like CJRacer's tech clinics start earlier so you may want to arrive earlier & get a head start on the debauchery. I plan to ride over early. My site is reserved for 10 thru 14.

Here is the Adv link...

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...t=833716&page=

Let me know if you want to ride along or a tent site. Hope to see you there.

Me! Me! Me!

Although I can't be there early, I can stay late...like a bad party guest, or herpes!

I'll be planning a route through Texas and southern CO.

Check the CoBDR route. It goes directly to Steamboat, starts at Four corners

See the link...

http://www.backcountrydiscoveryroutes.com/COBDR

The gpx files are on that site.

But then, that may take too long on the up trip.

Just another late night herptic lesion confirming the intent to travel along with the harcus'd route. And similar to the Texas lesion, I am free to stay later or wander further........just a matter of which orange bike to torture myself with......

I'm sure hick could help with the assectomy. Nothing like a good game of hide and go keys to end the day.

I don't know about playing hide the keys, but I'm not saying I would say no to a nice massage either....

I saw a few guys out riding in the area today. I was goofing around up near Emigration, Park City, Heber and over the Front to American Fork. Just a fantastic day to be out riding.

Top of East Canyon:



To ALL vehicles???





This reminded me I was out of water:

Harcus is your man for that!

(with a tear in my eye) That man has the hands of an angel.

It's not safe to lane split at 70 mph carrying one of these under one arm...




KTM rally: definite maybe! I couldn't blow the whole week w/ Harcus though. I could maybe get Fri-Mon off... I'd be on the 520.
