shepherd is open

hey all you montana riders shepherd has just reopened ofter a year of being closed. Some of it is still closed, but most is open. They are working on moving the track that was out there and it should be up within the next two weeks.

Ya, thats cool. Lets just make a concentrated effort to act in a positive manner and police ourselves and keep her open. I was gonna ride there this Saturday, but I am gonna hit Elk Basin once more before the gun hunters and their ATV's take it over.

We rode AH-NI yesterday. It was our first time out there. Good time. Nice trials. I was impressed with the other riders out there, mostly quads. That is by far the most people I have ever seen while riding. There must have been 50 people out there, but it wasnt that bad. We did get a chance to visit with the BLM Ranger, he was a cool guy. He wasnt doing much checking, just kinda having his presence known. I did ask him to sound check my bike, as we are supposed to be under 98 db out there. I was at 99-100 with my open cap and 98 with my quiet cap. Good things to know. He said things are going very well out there, and there havent been many problems. That is good to hear. He said he is giving mostly warnings and trying to educate rather than just writing tickets, I thought that was cool too. Overall, I was pretty impressed. :banghead::banghead:

i love the elk basin it is probably the funest place to ride around. I go there all most everytime i go riding.

When i went to Ahni it was packed. I did not find it to be as fun as i expected. There is nothing challenging enough for me there. It is just a nice relaxing ride.

Yeah, AhNi is just a decent place to go when theres not much time. Elk Basin makes for an awesome ride. As challenging or easy as you want. We should hook up there sometime. But be aware, I am a shitty rider. But there is never a dull moment with me and my group around.

      Has anybody done the Holy Cross Trail on a dirtbike?  This is just outside of Minturn, north of Leadville and south of Vail.  I've run this several times in my Jeep (probably my favorite trail) all the way past Holy Cross City to Cleveland Rock, but wondering how it would be on a bike.  I'm guessing it would be easier.
      I'll likely plan to find out this summer, but would appreciate any input.

      Three of us decided to get the heck out of the Midwest weather as we are suffering a bad case of the wife is driving us crazy right along with the cabin fever.  A couple of us have been to MOAB once before but we're only three and we like a bit larger group when the riders are fairly well matched.  However, and this may show what I DON'Y know about MOAB, the one day of riding I was able to do out there last year before having to head home for a family burial, it seems to me that the skill level required for most of MOAB is fairly dialed down compared to Taylor Park so matching up skill level as a group seems less an issue.  Now don't skin me alive if I am wrong, I already said I don't really know the area yet.  So anyway, if anyone is interested in joining us on the trail, we'd like to know about it!

      Weather should be awesome, thinking of taking the day off to go ride rampart or something else close Friday. I'm not one to go riding by myself so if anyone is thinking about it let me know! My usual riding buddy has plans.

      Spring is almost here and I was wondering if anyone has been by pipestone... How is the snow looking?? MTDOT pass web cam is down so I could not get a visual on the snowpack. is the lower area still a bit wet or is it starting to dry up a bit. Looks like we have some really good weather this week. I think I am going to head there this saturday to check it out but if anyone has any updates post them here.
      Also, last year was my first year there and we only hit it in the late fall. We really liked the area and were able to go 4 or 5 times. If you are a regular shout out and lets go riding.... I plan on spending a lot of time there this year.
