So, it looks like I have the 29th-2nd off, just enough time for a trip to wick or somewhere else with some good riding. Thump what is your schedule? Paging Enduro-ince and Unaweep to the orange courtesy phone.....

I'll get some footage but I'm going to use one of the hard mounts instead of the goggle mount to try to get rid of the shake.
if it is in the time block above i'm just dumb enough to try.

This sounds like the beginnings of an excellent plan. I've gotten in much worse shape from too much house building stress and too little riding so this should be an excellent opportunity for you to get a workout carrying me.

VxZ, rtadlock?

Bueller?


EDIT - just saw VxZ's post.. Excellent.

I'm off through the 2nd... was thinking about heading out the eve of the 27th, back on the 30th eve. I'd have to check with the missus on plans if it extends to the 31st.

Is it ok to take back what I've said?

You guys are calling on folks that are reasonable...take Unaweep for example.....he seems to make good decisions!

Yeah, let's get enduro-ince, he always helps out when you're really tired (by taking pics).

I actually would feel much better having cross country or enduro-ince there because I know they would know what to do in a bad situation...Good guys to go bad places with (the best kind to ride with)!

Yeah.. After towing 87mcmahan87 out of there dead-engine in the dark last time I'm kinda done with breakdowns. You fvckers break something and you're on your own.

Here's what it looks like around here.


BTW: I rode in just my body armor and shorts @ 14 deg....Do I think this makes me tough, No, just fat and lazy (my fingers were freezing by the end).

Just flew over the area of Moab and Green River today and the whole area is snow covered. I would say not much riding until a snow melt occurs.

chirp chirp.. I'm interested but not optimistic. seems like the temps won't be warm enough to melt out the swell. But if moaville dries out I'd come for some of that action.

Tiko, if you head to Wick I recommend using a knobbie down there, lots of bottomless DG.
