    Colordo Question.....mnt Elbert

    You were at the Golden Fleece Mine. This trail to the summit of Elbert is hardist (class 2 classic) route to climb. It's requred climb two other summit before you can reach the mian summit 14, 433 feet. If you really want to go up Mt. Elbert, I recomand hike the trail on foot from South Mount Elbert trailhead. 11 miles, which you'll climb 4,850 feet to the summit. This route is easiest route on Elbert. Any of the 14ers mountains in Colorado you'll just have to do that on foot. Except Pikes Peak and Mt. Even. And make sure you take warm weather clothes and alot of water and do not wear jean, start early and leave summit by no later then noon.

    Colordo Question.....mnt Elbert

    Yes, you can ride most FR that area to the certain point. When you see trailhead sign you'll need to park your motorcycle and walk to the top, well... most of the case. And than there's always exception. I think, you rode part of Echo Canyon trail. The Echo Canyon trail start at 10,000 feet and provides access to Elbert's South West side. The 4X4 road ends at the Golden Fleece Mine at 12,700 feet, beyone this point motorized vehicles is not allowed. It's very dangurous and not rideble from this point. I am one of those volunteer people doing trails maintanance works around Colorado 14ers Mountains, so I climbed a lot of Colorado high mountains.

    There 5 trails you can access Mt. Elbert. From South Half moon trailhead, North, Mt, Massive traildhead, Black Cloud trailhead, Echo Canyou trailhead and South Mt, Elbert trailhead, but none of these trails are open to motorcycle or atv to the summit.

    There no need plated if you are riding from CR 438 which near by Diamond Mine, but if you are riding from the town of Leadvill you do need bike plated.

    Mt. Bross is not accessble, either by foot or moto any longer this time, because due to land onwership isuess.

    Colordo Question.....mnt Elbert

    Most of the Colorado 14ers peaks are not access by moto or the mt bike. we need keep that way as is. There is good reason. If you want to go all the way to the top...please do so with your feet. Pikes Peak you can ride up all the way to the summit but you'll need to have a license Plate on your bike.

    Ok so what is the most disgusting thing.....

    I am a killer! In the past, I've killed dear, coyotes, snakes, thousand grasshoppers, and ten thousand bugs!!! I hate killing things, but sometime it seems can't help myself! The last weekend, I ran over really pretty snake with my bike. I'd felt really bad...

    Beginner's bikes con't...

    I also ride crf230, and I love my bike and I practiced a lot over the year and half how to pick it up. I think, I've been practiced enough picking up heavy bike, so I am ready to move up to next level...to CRF450X!

    How old is too old for a lady to start riding?

    DRZ, can't belive you mentioned that 4 letter word either....by the way it's spelled Kwad and I only use them for traction. ************** It seemed to me these dates said they were saying "I can't do that at my age." Being a primitive male primate I thought it might be a hormonal, age related thing. Probably would have been hooked on riding if they had only tried, but nooo. Definitely need to find an adventurous, thrill seeking type lady. Anyone know Jen, the Salty Salomander (or something like that) who's only 3'6"tall? Last I heard she had 4 or 5 bikes, and can't see over the handlebars on any of them. Rides all the time and doesn't whine. Good little rider. Used her as a kickstand once. Need more like her. Velo expressed my plans well, teach them around the campsite to do figure 8's, clutch/brake technique, starting/stopping on hills, wheelies, stoppies, fetch beers, etc Get em in shape and then take them to the 5 Miles of Hell. If they survive then they're a keeper. Any comments? Anyone know Jen, the Salty Salomander (or something like that) who's only 3'6"tall?

She's an awesome rider. And she is my friend and they live only couple of blocks away from me. Anyway, old age is nothing to do with anything. It dosen't matter how old they are, you cannot teach someone if they are not interested in riding for themself. I am almost 46 and people telling me that I am still looks like in early 30's. Heck, I teach and prctice myself these stuff for my own benefit, so that I can have more fun and be better rider...except fetching the beers. I don't do that for no body, you can fetch your own beers. Then again I rarely drinks any kinds of alcohol beverages. I know a few women who ride occasionally (a few times a year) and they asked me to go ride with them in the past but I said no thanks. Well, they are one of those girly girls who likes to whine about everything, you know, things like, it's too hard, it's too hot, I can't picked up my bike, or I broke my nails, etc. I much rather ride alone than taking care of the fragile lady.

    To ride, or not to ride... alone

    If you are comfortable with your bike and yourself, I don't see why not. Since, I am a single woman, without boyfriend or husband, I ride alone in the woods trails, but I do paid extra attention to my surrounding. I am pretty comfortable riding alone.

    Advice please, need Boots for my wife

    I have 3 pairs of boots, Thor, SIDI Flex Force SRS, and A. Tech 6. They are a great boots. But I do like SIDE more so then THOR, or Tech 6, because SIDE is much more comfotable to walk in and has a calf adjustment to fit my need. It dosen't matter what the cost, importain thing is you'll have to get comfortable when you try on first time. I've seen some rider who has the most expensive boots but can't hardly walk because so painful to walk.

    Honda questions...

    honda crf205x has both kick & e-start. I am 5'6 and I am getting honda crf 450x next year and 450x is too tall for me. 250x and 450x they are the same height. I'll have to lower the links to fit and yes, it can be done. I rode 450x a few weeks ago I can least touch one foot on the ground.
