We got about 7", but it's melting fast; probably 4" left this evening. I think It'll be good on Sunday.

How many cc's should I bring to SV, 1200 or 450? More is better, right?

Ahhh..... I remember it like it was yesterday.

"Sandal, I know this doesn't make sense but, when we get to the top of the hill, tell the cop you're about to have a heart attack"

And then about 5 miles later bikes all start running out of gas

Was that the day we came upon the stoner moped camp-out??

I forgot about everyone running out of gas. Yeah, the moped guys were that weekend too.

That was probably the most embarrassing weekend of riding for me, and most of my riding is embarrassing, so that is saying something. I honestly thought I had it, until I didn't.

I think we skated on about $1500 in tickets on that one. $500 for not replacing our divot and $250 each for parking on the green.

Wait, you're bringing a 1200? The Sherco seems like overkill if a street bike can handle this stuff! Maybe KLX... or maybe I'll bring both and wing it!

He's kiddin..........although, I've ridden with him and he is certainly capable.

BLT is right . ... . . IHF is full of $hit.

Bring that SHerco - you'll be glad you did.

Keep ya'll fingers crossed that it stays sunny

Oh and T13 - you'll be fine on gas - maybe 35 miles to the pump - and it's faster stuff, not like WP where it's 2nd gear all day.

Hey and I guess are we saying 9am at Coalmont?? Sounds good to me.

OH AND PLEASE ---- If you're riding SUnday please bring a folding saw if you can. Not sure if we will be able to clear the line we need too but, if we can it will cut out about 5 miles of street. The downed tree(s) are really making us have to "go around".

T13 - if you can, you need to make sure you make the club ride at Carter Mtn next weekend.
Get up with some intermediate guys that ride loop 2.
IMO loop 1 is pretty chopped up.
Bring a full camelback and a sandwich.
