I dunno, I'm no expert but to me it just sounds like Tyko's bike.

Good choice, hopefully the snow melts soon! Here's a vid, but not good, I don't wanna sift through footage. Have fun in NM, and if dirtdad claims to be a green chile guru, I'd make him pony up on that claim!!!

Looks like you're getting used to the 200, nice vid!

Thanks, but it doesn't hold candle to the worst video you've put out, let alone the best. With multiple cameras I'm guessing split screen stuff next from you. The 200 is good, I need to learn to shift down 2 gears when I would shift one on my 400, but with the right gear selection I'm faster in the twisty stuff, the high speed and really technical I'll have to learn it more. Heal well!

Yea, but only from MM 11. I rode 2 days @ MM 9 but it was very far from the good stuff. I didn't include any Wick footage, I had a dead battery the times I rode really good stuff. When you go the right places Sycamore is...Syc!

Looks like an inversion year for Moab Temps have been consistently colder there than Telluride. I guess that hopefully means next year will be doable all winter again?

Snow was actually melting today. I went up to Moab Rim and it's almost rideable, snow on the two ledge sections though. Should be good to go by the 19th, we can do 25 laps on it.


I would only go watch reggae if the band from the hillz played some funk too.

We were supposed to go out to Green River next weekend for a ride, but I think we will head to New Mexico the weekend of the 24th instead and ride for a few days.
