Yeah, I've been napping.

Routes are frantically being worked. The construction on 106 is requiring me to lay out 4 different routes. We won't know until Wednesday if we will be able to ride thru. I'm also resolving some significant differences between what I tracked on the ground, and what the USFS GIS data shows.

fair enough. will make do. As said, it would be really neat to have it preloaded but fully understand the difficulty it takes to get these routes together and the last minute curve balls that get thrown in the mix.

Thanks for all your hard work

As mentioned, you need to have a plate, approved spark arrestor, and pass the sound test. A headlight would lend additional validity. We are riding very little highway. The sheriff is very supportive of this event and I've never had inspections for DOT tires or registration insurance checks, but that all goes out the window if you are doing something stupid on Main Street.

I pre-ran the A loops this weekend. Folks will not be disappointed. While 602 might be ready for another 100 miles at the end of the day, I think the average rider will be pressed to finish all 134 miles of the Saturday A loop. The majority of the riders will be pleasantly worn out at the end of the day.

Guys,
This looks incredible!
Is anyone from the Salt Lake area heading over to this? Are you trailering or riding?

I'd love to do some of the single track, but I can't see riding the 530 all the way there and back... I'd have to hire someone to rub my monkey butt for a week when I got back....

Hi Suzy,

There are no "additional meals," the extra meal at registration for another dinner serving. The local 4-H club will provide breakfast at an additional cost outside of the registration fee. I think last year they had breakfast burritos and egg/bacon sandwiches for like $4 (that may have even included coffee). Pretty tasty. Lunch - you are on your own. Dinner is Sat. night and is the only meal included in registration fee.

Let us know if you have any other questions!

OK, good to know! I bought a second serving for someone then! :) I guess I need to learn how to read FAQ's. I've been avoiding the computer lately.

Can't wait to see everyone. I have barely ridden in the past 2 years, and I think I forgot how. I'm gonna attempt the B route though I may be a B/C rider now. I am an A(A) drinker though! I look forward to the camp fire (if allowed in this draught).

Of course now that I say I am going for sure I find out my forks are fuct and my bike isn't going to be ready on time. If I can't xfer my registration and my friends registration I will be riding with leaky forks, squeaky brakes, and cockeyed bars.

Looking forward to seeing you again.

There will be 2 or 3 fire pits set up at night.

Join the crowd. In order to properly enjoy the short summers here your trail riding needs to exceed your required bike maintenance.

That section north of Stmbt along with about 1-2 miles of rocky road on the west side of Buffalo Pass were the only places that required some special attention. It is an awesome route .

Sounds great - gonna ride the C loop with Craig on the 658s!

Or have back up bikes ready when one is down.

Speaking of down, Paula's DR is out again. It needs some bent bolts replaced and a new ignition switch. She also has to wash the blood off the front of the bike before I get too far into it. Not that I can't deal with it, but she has to take some responsibility for the repair process.
