A few days after that (Easter weekend) a small group of us will be in Moab. Just after your visit unfortunately.

I'm heading down to California in mid April to attend the Rawhyde Next Step training and follow that up with the week long adventure ride in Mohave and Death Valley. I'll be hauling my F800GS down in my truck.

A buddy and I got out yesterday. Wicked ride. Flat tire as the sun went down but we had it fixed in no time and back on the trail to return to the truck at night.

I do miss my dirt bike! My buddy let me ride his WR450.

Mr Canoehead - the forks look great. You should post the whole write up that you sent me on ADV. Nice work on both the fork swap and the write up.

Cheers, DD

HeeHaaaw!

-5C and 200kms today on Big Blue. Cool but refreshing after 2 months of the winter blues. Just paved bumpy backroads unfortunately. Anything dirt was ice covered. Paved stuff was dry all the way to Elbow Falls including all the small stuff south, west and east of southern Calgary. Love the heated vest and grips. Cold toes though. Stopped for coffee in Priddis, got warmed up and did another 100kms. Didn't realize how much I needed that.

Anyone interested in doing a fairly regular hang night somewhere to have a pint and chat bikes? I was thinking Thursday nights and frequency per month would depend on interest. I'd prefer somewhere south end or central.

I'd be interested. Wild Rose Brewery is pretty central, easy to get to and has good food (and great beer).

I'd be interested too.

I'll be the lady of the group and say coffee is good too. Better options for patios and people watching on summer nights.

The one night we did a coffee night on 17th had a decent turnout of about 7-8 of us. Interesting to hear peoples riding history, and future plans, etc.

Tea Totaler....almost

Sounds interesting to me as well, but prefer a Friday night. Don't feel bad Shibby, I am a 1 drink limit, then coffee, since driving is going to be the reality (unless the bar is within walking distance to my place). Patio is out for a while anyway. A fire place and nice warm pub sound better right now.

Anyone else thinking about the GS course at Wildrose Motorsport Park in April?

I was thinking of checking that coarse out. Supposed to be worth it just to ride there.

The first two are April 29th (Monday) 08:00 -17:30 and, June 17th (same times). Phone Roz @ 403-214-5398 to book.

Edit: I spoke to Roz and the May course has been dropped and the website updated. The instructors did not want conflict with the long weekend and race schedules.
