Just wondering if there are any route sheets or GPS files available of the planned routes that someone would be willing to share.

Thanks.

If you can, stay at the Lodge, Faith was great and we were really happy with the place. An official ADV approved and endorsed business.

Thanks to All

Made it home, straight run through the mountains and Cannon City, then into Pueblo, Unloaded the bike and passed out! It is scorching around these parts! Wanted to say thanks to all that made this happen as well as all the vendors whom participated. It was a extremely great time and my hat is off to all the help as well that pitched in at the lodge. Thanks for a great time and unlimited memories. Looking forward to the next one for sure! And a big thanks to Big John's wife for the Potato Recipe!! Scott..

Long ride home after a GREAT rally. Many thanks to John and crew for organizing things and feeding us well! Thanks to Tellydoug for leading the "Hauling Ass and Carnage Ride". The Colorado rocks and trails were left with GS paint and other bits and pieces, compliments of myself, Skip, and Andrew! Hopefully the photos will get posted. YZFcathy smoked us all in the twisties...hope we didn't slow you down too much! Thanks to Michael for hanging with me in the evenings...now if I can learn to ride as well as you so that my GS can avoid further damage!

Hey, if I can get those that won something to take a photo with some of the prizes that be cool. I want to email these companies some photos of the riders and prizes to say THANK YOU. Or if you all want to take it upon yourself to email them directly that be cool too.

Chaparral Racing: info@chaparralmotorsports.com

Remember next year they might give again, if they think the marketing was worth it. So people that got % off coupons please use them or give them to someone to use...it shows the marketing worked.

Thank you, and I hope you all enjoy the prizes....

This is a great idea and a strong strategy to keep vendors from one year to the next. Please have someone take a pic of you with your stuff and send to Modette. PM him for an email address.

Thanks, John

Thanks to Big John and all the rally crew. Big thanks to TellyDoug for the great ride Friday. Sorry you had to take off Saturday I was looking forward to another epic trek. Had a great time hanging with Barry, Cathy, Skip and Andrew. Hell I enjoyed everyone's company. Looking forward to next year. Telly's so good he can navigate with the Atlas upside down!

I posted some gps tracks awhile back in this thread. When I get a chance, I'll post some that I made over the weekend. What kind of bike and what level of difficulty are you wanting?
Thanks.We will be on 250's and 450's,but we are all getting pretty long in tooth. so we are not looking for any real nasty stuff.

Probably looking for a mixed bag,with good scenery.I'm really looking forward to some of the milder single track like you have been posting in the "Salida" thread.

Great thread,thanks for posting it.

[QUOTE=skidxr;16583980]I'm home.. Unfortunately I pushed my luck just a bit to hard though. My bike was the one that stripped the countershaft and was then welded solid. It did great until Stony Pass when the weld let go. Fortunately I happened across a guy with a satellite phone. He had to go up high to get a signal then he called my better half for me. It all worked out.

Thanks again to Terry, Tyler, Marcus, LB and everyone else who helped me.. You guys rock !!!

Glad it turned out ok, Norm. Hope to see you next year.
