I'm in for the ride, but to much of a pansy to camp in the cold. What time do you guys plan on taking off Sunday morning?

that's usually dependent on what time one sober's up enough to kick start one's bike

(8'ish)

I think it was like 9'ish by the time people rolled out of their rooms last year when I drove. I'm not a camper and hate cold so the two for me don't go together if I decide to come I'll be hauling the bike on over.

I think that was brought up last year. If I recall the official answer is YES as it is a county road, but it closes due to weather so unofficially its a NO, not like your going to have a cop back there.

Hope to see you all

There will be a number of non-plated bikes up there. My 11 yr old son has ridden one the past two years. You should come up too, Bill; it's a fun time.

I'll be there as usual, depending on the weather I'll either trailer the WR or ride the XT. If anyone needs ice screws, I have 3000 Pro-Gold 1/2 inchers in stock @ $59/1000. These are short enough that on a knobby or aggressive DS(MT21 or D606) tire you don't have to worry too much about puncturing a tube, but they're long enough to stay in as long as you're not too silly with the throttle on the pavement. Keep in mind they paved pretty much all of the road last year, with the exception of a couple of miles on the Grant side, so conditions may be a lot different than in years past, especially if there's been significant vehicle traffic over the pass from Georgetown. This could be a good thing, as the switchbacks on the north side are wicked fun when there's a couple of inches of ice and you have screws in the tires...

See y'all there!

How many does it take usually for a tire?
