Looking forward to it... rode a 450x in San Jose Del Cabo in November, I think it's a great bike for baja.

This week isn't good for me. Probably not for awhile. I have been looking to do a good Offroad trip in the US for awhile now. I have a cube van with a big 4cyl Toyota diesel in it. Gets not bad mileage for having a 16' box. I thought that a 2-3 week trip around the west would be easily affordable and not completely uncomfortable for 3 people. It could be down right cheap if those said 3 people don't need hotels/don't mind drinking cheap booze and passing out in the dirt.

I wish. I was missing Baja as soon as the temps dropped below 15C on my way home this January...

Hmmmmm, just my style.... I'm up at work right now but I have almost all the parts I need for the annual service on my Dakar ordered at Crackfoot. Might be possible depending on what the work gods hold for me in the next few weeks...

The project I'm on should be finishing at the end of May.
I'd really like to head back to Nevada, Utah and Arizona.

I'm thinking about trying the Alberta section of the TCAT this summer as well.

I'd love to hit moab again and do some more trail riding in that neck of the woods.

Anyone out yesterday?

I saw a newish KLR and a WeeStrom riding together heading south on MacLeod Trail at Heritage yesterday afternoon at about 4:00 pm. Anyone on here? Made me want to turn around and drag the bike out the back alley through the snow and ice to the street. Maybe in another few days if the weather forecast holds. Melt, snow, melt! David

Saw!

A couple of gals out yesterday on their Harleys in Black Diamond. Kind of salty looking bikes though. Backroads should be perfect about Thursday. Dryish anyway. Worst part is getting out of the neighborhoods.
