Next weekend anyone?

next weekend I may bust a variation of the Powell 700* reverse from last run since i've never seen it that direction... weather should be spectacular and I've got new knobbies to get over all the flood debris!

WooHooo!

PM me if you wanna go. moderate skills lighter bikes. I'll be on the 520. ride sunrise to sunset, stopping for gas and greasy spoons. I pack light, taking a few MRE's for when a burger just isn't on the route which is usual.

*aka: trackhead 700, but I do prefer descriptive names over honorary.
The skinny is here to lake powell on dirt as a loop.

I have an easy (rideable with winter gloves) 800 mile Mohave looped planned for pre-Xmas if you want to go. I'm going to need a break from this PNW rain in a big way by then.

Idaho Ride

Hey guys, I really wanted to go to Steamboat. But this didn't suck too bad either ... 5 days, 1500 miles of super duper ultra heavy duty boner vistas through Idaho.

Great ride with my Idaho homies (even though they were mostly riding Beamers). The new soft pack from Harcus worked great. I even snuck in a little fishing and a natural hot spring.

Checkitout...

lightweight style trip, two weekends away...

Not this weekend but next going to do a Friday night after work departure down to probably Price or Wellington or possibly Wedge Overlook as a starting point. Then a 2 day trip Saturday and Sunday, done Sunday night, and then back to SLC. Room for 1 more on the trailer unless I can score another trailer then I can fit 4 total..

Route will be something similar to this trip from last spring. Unless I can find something in West Desert or south-west desert into Nevada that might be fun for 2 days as well...

I'm in on this!



This weekend I went exploring and had to negotiate locked fences and nearly ran out of gas. I didn't mean to get stuck on private land, and didn't get discovered or ticketed for poaching gates but i had no choice. Adventure begins when the certainty of success ends!

sweet, 3 confirmed for now...

re lever, too funny.. I'd try ktmtalk calssifieds. If can't find one then maybe post up. Also DJH at dhjcyclesport.com might have one from a bad engine... I think they're all interchangeable (the kick starters) but I know the earlier ones had longer ones that worked better...

Hopefully I'll be able to join in on these rides next year. Need to get some practice, and an appropriate bike, before trying to keep up on some of the places y'all go.
