spring poker run??

i just got clearance for the run... i will be there!!! yessssss!! i don't know if i will have to work on sunday or not... i hope not!! if i don't i will be camping out there that night... who is going to be there? anyone camping... im sure i will end up hanging with elimn8tor23 (tony) if he goes... anyone is welcome to join me and my family. i do want to do the long loop this time... i want to run with a group that is fairly quick and less stops this time. but open for anything! trevor u going? post if you are going and want to ride in a group... maybe we can get to groups going... a faster one and a slower one. its a blast to do... and put on by a lot of great people!! and alot of TT peeps there!

I'll be looking for a group as well. I'm an intermediate rider in pretty good shape right now.

Well, you all know where you'll find me...

At the front gate "greeting" the masses and watching the sullen faces of the quad riders when they find out 500 motorcyclist will be on the trail.:thumbsup:

hehe i love that!

i will have a quad with me but its for later that night... crf doesn't have a light and just because there is no light doesn't mean i can't ride!! :thumbsup: and my wife may come with to play on the trails.

thumper33 you can ride and hang with me if you want. sounds like we are the same speed. if not... close enough... always up to chase someone faster than myself, or wait for someone slower!! as long as we are on the trails and on the bikes!!

I'll be there this time around. Td, are you camping this time around?

on sat night yes!

I'll go. I should have a new (used) talon/excel wheel by the end of the week. Also have some AC10's for the rear, Baja for the front, Pro Taper Evo's to replace the butter bars, did t-ring chain and steel sprockets to complete it out. Just got to put it together this week.

nice broken... it will be a new bike!

i maybe able to do that... not sure yet!!

I agree. Long loop this time around. :thumbsup:

I forgot to pre-register. When I register at the Poker Run, can I pay with a check?

You've got a week to go cash that check! :thumbsup:

yep... you need cash! as far as i can remember no checks. plus come on its aweek away. and there is an atm right off the highway in castlerock on the way to flatrocks. :thumbsup:

Geez, I know! Okay, ill go get cash. :thumbsup::bonk:


Guys, just so you know, we will take a check.:thumbsup:

and as you know, any $$ I collect at the front gate in donations go right back to the trails.

Also if you care, I spent some time last weeked with the Ranger on some of the new trail (the ATV/Multiple use stuff) and it should be cool! Thinking we might be riding some of that before summer ends...Damn that walking sucks!

Singletrack is still being worked on. Guys flagging trail tread as I type this...

Gonna be sweet!

can't wait rod!! rampart is always a blast. when its not over crowded! :thumbsup:

500 plus on a trail thats not crowded????

500 plus on a trail thats not crowded????

Not for the Poker Run...we usually have between 300-400. Fast guys tend to start first, families and guys like me start later.

It's non-competetive. Two loops, short 15-20 mile "family" then another 20-40 mile long loop.

You might have one or two places where some young-uns need to be passed but overall a "crowded" feeling is not really an issue.

and its one direction! it really isnt bad... its fun! if you havent done one come out with us!

      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.

      Action Alert: The Araphoe/Roosevelt Nat. Forest Service, Boulder Ranger District has released its Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) which will be the Forest Service’s official map of all roads and trails open to motorized use in the District. If a road or trail is not on this map, it will be officially closed and some areas will be gated and shut down, and violators will be fined.
      The Boulder Ranger District's draft MVUM was released this week, but is being officially unveiled Wednesday Nov. 4 between 3-7pm at the Forest Service office in N. Boulder at an Open House. The draft MVUM includes NO trails (i.e. singletrack) open to motorcycles, except existing FS roads (i.e. jeep roads) and the few existing singletrack trails in Left Hand Canyon OHV area (LHC). Basically, the FS is saying that there is, and will be no singletrack open to dirt bikes in the entire Ranger district except the 4 miles or so of singletrack in LHC. If the existing trails do not get put on this map, there is no chance for them to open in the future, without a very difficult and slim chance process. They need to be included on the MVUM in order for us to fight to open them.
      At this point we are trying to get the dirt bike community to show support for keeping trails open to us. Tomorrow night, the FS office is having a Open House to review and talk about the MVUM. We need as many people as we can to stop in be a voice for the dirt bike community. Basically, just stop in and ask why there is no singletrack or other trails open to motorcycles in the entire district other than LHC. Let them know that they are missing all the singletrack trials that dirt bikes have been riding for decades and that there are 100’s of us out there that will be adversely affected. They have completely excluded the singletrack trails at 509/Gold Lake, West Magnolia, Gordon Gulch, Rollinsville and everywhere else in the district. Also, within the next 10 days, there will be a comment period. All comments will need to be submitted by the deadline. I’ll follow up with more information about getting comments in. This is very important so keep a look out here on TT or with the Forest Service.
      PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD. Our collective voice is our only chance. For example, in Breckenridge a few months ago, over 100 motorcyclist showed up to a city council meeting to voice their opposition to some proposed closures. As a result of the turn out, the city council delayed the closing until further study.
      Do what you can to keep these trails open and legal. Get Involved. The Draft MVUM can be found here: www.fs.fed.us/r2/arnf/recreation/travel_mgmt/mvum/index.shtml
      Sorry for the late notice, but I just found out.
      Thanks, Gary.
