Our forum! Wheeee!

Gonna have a mini tech day at my place this saturday the 21st in the morning. I'll be adding some stuff to my wife's KLR and Patsue will be coming by for a doohickey and whatever else. Come on down if you want. If you need directions let me know.

Will probably take a ride in the afternoon, but don't know what or where yet. Weather might decide that.

Stay safe.

Nick, I wrote in your intro post, also. We'll be wrenching a bit. I'll get my bike back togethr, Laurie will get some progressive fork springs, hand guards, doohickey, maybe foot pegs. Maybe some other stuff like the brake line. If Patsue shows up, we'll do his doo.

Woohoo! I found you guys, and I can post! Still want to get together for a ride up phantom canyon, etc. this fall Nick! We just got back from Mexico, and I'm wrenching on a 1977 yamaha DT100 Enduro for Tami to learn to ride. It's a sweet bike, but I'm working out electrical gremlins.

I hope to be active on this site- I know you guys thought you were rid of me

Nick- how long of a ride is it from your place, up Phantom Canyon and down Shelf road (or vice versa). How would it be for a day ride from here and back, with these shorter days?

Hayduke,

I'd guess the round trip from Florence up Phantom Canon and down Shelf rd or vice versa would be about 4-5 hours including an hour lunch stop in Cripple Creek. If you got here 9:30-10:00 you should be back on the road to Salida by 3:00-3:30. I think these times err on the side of more time than I expect it to take.

Tami is doing well. I just heard from Mark (our British friend). Tami and I rode with he and his wife Daisy down to Copper Canyon (Mexico), and they continued south toward S. America. They were in Puerto Vallarta today, headed for Tequila tomorrow.

I also sent an email to Robb Pennie (Highcountry?) - he was at the Tech Day in Sept. He was wondering where we all went. Said he'll be checking in here.

Take Care!
