Moto ride, Saturday May 26
Who can get out this Saturday? Here's my plan for 4-5 hours of riding fun...

meet in Idaho Springs at 10:00, big parking lot behind Beau Joe's, Tommyknocker's, etc. Then saddle up for 2 miles of I-70, up Fall River Road, then Yankee Hill. Cut over to the Apex/Mammoth side, then head back over Kingston Peak, back down Fall River to York Gulch, up York to OMG road, then back down to town. Hoping to be able to do all of that on one tank of gas, but can always bail on York if someone's on fumes or if time gets tight. And of course, it could be snowy up there too which means we find something else to play on.

All makes/models/displacements/abilities welcome, but you gotta be street legal.

Sounds like fun but I can't make it :(
From the chat a the BRD meeting, I don't think Kingston Peak road is clear of snow yet. You might have to have an alt plan for snow drifts.

Cool, thanks Bruce. Yankee is SW facing so should be clear, and once up there it's all a big network so I'm sure we'll find something to do even if we get turned around on Kingston. Half the fun is exploring though and finding out!

Doesn't look good at the moment - Becky already has a ride for herself on the calendar for Saturday morning, which means I'm on kid duty...

I should be a go for riding tomorrow. :) Finalizing some logistics....

Looks positive for me.

Cool guys- Matt did you get a receiver carrier? I may have just loaned my trailer to Dave thinking you weren't able to do this, but I'm not sure his plan at this point. I'm guessing we could most likely use it if needed.. I'll be at the Big Choice again tonight if we need further strategizing. :drink:

edit: Dave doesn't need my trailer until midweek, so it's available if anyone wants to carpool... come to my place in the morning?

I have to bring the kids with me in the morning and drive them to my sister's house in Golden, so I don't think we'll do the trailer/carpool thing this round - too many logistics for me to manage. I happen to know another guy with a hauler that can loan it to me for tomorrow.

Yeah I'm in, will be driving in from breck on the 460.
