    Dubois Wyoming

    Albany Wyoming riding/camping?

    It will be snowed-in in "the spring". My wife is a pretty good rider, but I sure as hell don't take her to Albany. Lots of more forgiving single track elsewhere. =Doug

    Riding in Taylor Park, CO

    uh...avoid Timberline, Star and Waterfall...Flag, Reno, Deadmans, Bear Creek are single track they may be able to handle. Buy a map.

    Relocating to Denver Area - Advice?

    Negative. Closed indefinately. No one ever characterized it as "great" though. I hope you own a trailer and tow vehicle. That's how I get by...

    Taylor Park Trail Conditions?

    Flag, Reno Ridge, Rose Bud, Deadman, Bear Creek all good to go. Docter park from Matchless towards Dinner Station. Some deadfall needs chainsaw. I rode them last week. Check the GOATS on Facebook for best info. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Gunnison-Valley-OHV-Alliance-of-Trailriders-The-GOATs/115853601834310 And crontribute $. Word is star trail and lillipond are good, but I didnt ride. 648 connector is clear. Star Pass may be passable with one or so snow banks. Part of Doubletop may be snow blocked. Be careful crossing Cement Creek. Water is moving fast. =Doug

    Sugarloaf / Switzerland trails

    Switzerland Trail is a misnomer. It's an old railroad grade. You could drive a Prius down most of it. There is not legal single track in the area. You should join http://www.bouldercountytrailriders.com/ if you are interested in riding in Boulder County. =Doug
  8. I don't know about prolonged street use, but for trail riding i run 13PSI in my rear trials. I have only pinched it once in ~4 years. I have run the IRC, Michelin and Pirelli. Hated the Pirelli. Compound is too hard. IRC was favorite until I tried the Michelin this year. Will stick with that. Traction of the IRC but seems to wear longer. Trials are not very good in heavy sand or mud. But most of Moab is rock, where they excel. If you are only going 10 miles on pavement at 40mph, should be fine, in my experience. You're coming all the way from OH. Might I suggest you trailer to the good stuff? =Doug

    Best winter riding spots in CO/UT?

    Thanks for input on Kremmling. I thought it might be some kind of winter gem, but sounds like not so much. =doug

    Best winter riding spots in CO/UT?

    How about the area bordering Kremmling--Wolford Mountain? Does it stay dry through the winter? =Doug

    Taylor Park Trails - now closed

    The one that is still open is Hunter Creek. Don't forget the GOATs if you like riding in Taylor. I ran into Doug, the club president last Sunday on Deadman's and gave them a small donation. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Gunnison-Valley-OHV-Alliance-of-Trailriders-The-GOATs/115853601834310 =Doug

    New to CO

    Be sure to join http://www.bouldercountytrailriders.com/ You can meet some Boulder locals and folks to ride with. I live near downtown. Hit me up if you want to grab a beer some time. My wife and I trailer out of Boulder most weekends. =Doug
