Jealous...

An idea- y'all should try to have a little "ADV" party one evening in Moab, would be nice to get faces to replace avatars...

Can we just cme in and have a sneek -peek while we're there ?

Howdy Ya'll . We're coming up to Moab for the week of the 15th till the 22nd up to Moab from Greenville , SC . We weren't planning on doing the ADV rally while we're up there ? It was jsut pure coincidence that we will be there .

Do you think it will be allowed for us to come and have a SQUZZ at some 990s and SEs while there ? My friend Graham is interested in a 950 , and will be so cool to meet up with everyone from this side of ADV .

Another question . Does anyone know if Mosquito pass is still open ? Hope to see everyone there .

Mosquito is open at this very moment.. but could change any day. Watch the Leadville weather...

Many of the mountain ranges have gotten dusted with snow above 13,000 but its localized per range.

Moab

Edward,
Jury trial done, convicted defendant of 6 felonies. Now, back to riding in the greatest country in the world.

I am going to try to adjust my schedule to find a way to meet up and ride with you. I so much want to ride any of the passes/route you mentioned. God knows if Ned is jealous I am beyond. PM me with any of your plans and I will try to make things fit.

Side note, if any ADV'rs are heading to Moab and looking to add to their trip, Edward (still AKA Jackass) knows how to plan a route. You may find it better than the rally.

Doug

Doug: call me.

Ideally you should hop on that SE and head down here to my place Tuesday (or if you wanna trailer it down you can leave your truck here). You can crash at my place and we'll head out Wed. morning.

The fun will begin 3 blocks from my front door
I put that 908 back on yesterday so I'm ready to go

Ditto man, I think we'll all get along just fine


Was this the trail on the North side of 4 mile that you mentioned? The Wife and I ran it in and out back to the tunnels one evening. She loved it

Here's some from the north side of Four mile; as you can see much sandier and very little scree

In your photo you are up quite a bit higher because you are into coniferous forrest...

Yes, that looks very familiar to me. The sandy stuff at the access is fun, especially the cool river crossing. That section of fast two track with the whoops in it was a blast two up..... Me to the wife.. "Ok, here comes a jump..... LIFT!.......and again.... LIFT!" We jumped thos things two up and giggled like little kids We passed a few four wheelers two up and they cheered as we went hammering by

As everyone said, it's Kane creek, but like BoulderGuy said, do it the other direction than in the vid. I just came back from Moab, and some morons have bolted some metal shoots to the rocks on the bypass of the nasty section. Going the direction of the vid (as I like to do Kane creek), you would have to come up out of a river and try to get up these metal planks. On our thumpers it was a pain, on a 950/990 a real bitch to get traction. So go the direction BoulderGuy said and you'll be going down the planks. Apart from the bypass which is a lot of fun, there is only one other section that'll be a bitch on a 950, just a rocky down and up section that's at the beginning of the vid. It's a lot worse now than in that vid. But, Kane creek is a fun quite easy ride. BTW, going the direction we are suggesting, on the first rocky climb (3/4 way through the ride), look for a cut-off to the left when you get to a plateau, that's the bypass, and a shit load more fun than keeping on the trail.

BTW, In the vid, they took the bypass.

I have ridden Kane Creek a few times on my SE. Every time I have gone out to the highway and then back. I usually take the bypass on the way out and the main on the way back in. That is the easiest.
