  1. Got the following from the San Juan Trail Riders. Who is on a Jeep or rzr forum that can spread the word? I've got it on ADV. ------------ If anyone is in the Lake City area they could use our support! LAKE CITY NEEDS YOUR IMMEDIATE HELP! The current situation in Lake City is extremely urgent. The City is in imminent danger from flooding due to major avalanches in March, which are now melting and creating log and ice jams. When they release it could cause extensive damage to the town and the local infrastructure. The Hinsdale County Sheriff was personally affected by the avalanches and the community is trying to mitigate future damage. At this time, the emergency operations plan has identified the need for sandbagging as a priority. This need is further defined as 1,000 sandbags per day, for the next 15 days. This Thursday, May 23rd a group of people, including local law enforcement personnel, are heading to Lake City to help. The community has a sandbag filling machine and has individuals available to teach others how to use the machine. The Monte Vista Police Department has already committed four officers to this effort and urges other local law enforcement and emergency units to join in. The relief convoy will be leaving the MVPD around 6:30AM with plans to get briefed at 10:00AM in Lake City to begin filling the 1,000 per day quota. Whether you are in law enforcement, emergency services or and individual wanting to help your neighbors, please join in to assist Lake City in their efforts to save their town. If you need more information, please contact the Monte Vista Police Department at 719-852-6161 or Pastor Bob Galey at 248-421-0501. Thank you for helping be a part of this effort.
  2. Did anyone else see this? Poop. I am scheduled to go to Sargents the 3rd week of July... Hello: The Colorado Rocky Mountains experienced another record snowfall winter that just won't stop. Yesterday we got 10" in Colorado Springs and some mountain regions got another 20" on top of 18" a few days earlier. The high mountains currently have 20 FEET to 40 FEET of snow. ALL dirt mountain passes are still closed and will be closed for another 30 - 45 days. State Highway 82 (pictured above) into Aspen will be closed until June and Cottonwood pass will likely stay closed this year for construction. A few low elevation trails are open to ride but areas like Taylor Park, Sargents, Engineers Pass, etc. are buried in snow and many of the high elevation loops may not melt out until late July. After they melt, locals will need time to cut out the downfall and they could use your help. If you have made travel plans for Colorado, please re-schedule for a later date. The few trails that are not full of snow are full of downfall trees. Going around these downfall trees damages the trail which gives the motorcycle community a big black eye and adds to the negative narrative from the tree huggers. If you encounter downfall, PLEASE turnaround or get out your chainsaw. Please be respectful of your trails by waiting until they melt, dry out and locals have had time to clear the downfall trees. Always stay on the trail. Going off trail is a federal offense and the feds do have officers on dirt bikes in some parts of Colorado. Please become a trail ambassador and be part of the solution, NOT part of the problem. Thank you for reading this. Regards, Jeff Slavens
  3. Forwarded to me...Looks like they've figured out a way to get through the red tape and do what should have been done years ago: From: Alonzo, Denise -FS <denise.alonzo@usda.gov> Sent: Thursday, May 9, 2019 4:41:33 PM Subject: NEWS: Chainsaws Approved to Clear Trails in Two Colorado Wilderness Areas Media Contact: Lawrence M. Lujan, 303-815-9902, lawrence.lujan@usda.gov<mailto:lawrence.lujan@usda.gov> Chainsaws Approved to Clear Trails in Two Colorado Wilderness Areas Six-week approval to clear beetle-killed trees will improve forest and trail conditions while enhancing visitor safety, recreation opportunities, and visitor access. DENVER, CO., May 9, 2019 — Regional Office Officials announced today the approval for a time-limited exception for chainsaw use within the Weminuche and South San Juan Wilderness areas. The exception will allow Rio Grande and San Juan National Forest employees, partners, and volunteers under Forest Service supervision to clear bark beetle-killed trees that are obstructing access to the wilderness. The approval does not provide free rein to use motorized equipment in wilderness areas. The supervised use of crosscut saws and chainsaws will be allowed for up to six weeks between June 1 and August 17. Trail work will be dependent on resource availability and weather conditions. Removing obstructions will enhance visitor safety, improve access and reduce resource damage that occurs when visitors bypass dead and downed or leaning trees, which can create social trails, trample vegetation and cause soil erosion. The Weminuche Wilderness encompasses approximately 500,000 acres in southwest Colorado, the largest wilderness in the state, and is administered by both the San Juan and Rio Grande National Forests. The South San Juan Wilderness encompasses approximately 159,000 acres of the southeastern extent of the San Juan Mountain Range, including a segment of the Continental Divide, which is also administered by the San Juan and Rio Grande National Forests. “USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer.” Photos by USDA Forest Service Cimarrona Jackstraw 2015 - Dead and down trees blocking a trail in the Cimarrona area of the San Juan National Forest. Turkey Creek 2017 - Dead and down trees blocking a trail in the Turkey Creek area of the San Juan National Forest. [Forest Service Shield] Lawrence M. Lujan, MPA Now -- If they can get their act together about trail maintenance in non-wilderness, we'll have taken a giant step for better, safer (read: fire resistant) trails throughout the stae.
  4. Heading to Mesa Verde over Memorial Day weekend, staying in Cortez in a hotel, thinking of bringing the dirtbikes and spending one day riding. Any recommendations for a fun place to ride , nothing too technical, buddy and I will both have our daughters (12 & 14yrs old) with us, they are good riders so we're not looking for beginner terrain but not trying to beat them up too bad either! Thought about heading down to Farmington area for the day, never ridden Durango either so open to suggestions. Thanks!
  5. Couple years old, but afaik the most recent available. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1FjuRpCfb71dpBkl3-ifOkdK75LSvKewD/view
  6. The BLM is looking for public input on the North Sand Hills area. Not sure how many of you are familiar with that area, but it combines BLM dunes riding that is connected to state land that has traditional Rockies trail riding. It's a very well kept secret to most of us outside of the northern edge of the state. The BLM wants feedback on how to improve the area and is holding a meeting to get input. There are sure to be folks who want to restrict motorized access -- so if you can, try to make the meeting and voice your support for continued OHV access COHVCO sent this blast out regarding the meeting to all its members: https://cohvco.clubexpress.com/content.aspx?page_id=722&amp;club_id=95320&amp;emtid=106715576004&amp;mtid=265119097089&amp;ht=0&amp;sl=1159830003
  7. Looking to vacation\ride and fly-fish in Colorado in mid to late July or sometime in August. I have a 29 foot class A motor home and a small pull behind trailer. Looking to get up in the mountains and out of the heat. Would like to disperse camp if at all possible (no need for hook-ups). We own legally plated dual-sport or smaller woods style dirt-bikes whichever you think fits the bill. We are all intermediate and expert racers if that helps, just getting a little long in the tooth.
  8. Im guessing divide is still more suited for snowmobiles right now but on the off chance i thought i would ask if anyone has tried to go up in the last day or so. Thanks
  9. Hey, I just moved to Colorado in July 2018. This will be my first year with motocross/dirt biking, coming from road racing/flat track background. I am looking for entry level motocross tracks to ride. I've been able to find some motocross tracks on google in the metro-Denver area. I currently live in vail, are there any tracks off I-70? Thanks for the replies!
  10. HI Everybody, I have been out of the dirt bike riding game since I was a little kid, and having the itch to get back into it, I picked up an ultra cheap but mechanically sound bike. To clean it up a bit cheaply, I decided to go ahead and strip everything down and give the frame a coat of paint to prevent further rust. However me being the idiot that I am, I just realized that you can no longer legibly see the VIN on the frame anymore. I know I need to get the little registration sticker, and since I don't have a bill of sale, I saw that you can take the bike in for an inspection which I would assume involves taking note of the VIN. Unless I am missing something, I'm thinking my only option would be to maybe sand off the new paint over the VIN so it is visible? Then I guess maybe try to mask off the number itself and re-paint over it so the number can be seen but at least its a bit cleaner looking. I apologize if this is a dumb question, like I said I have been out of the game a while. Thanks for any and all info you can provide!!
  11. https://www.foxnews.com/us/colorado-hike-avalanche-bomb-unexploded-mitigation-mountains
  12. Searched, didn't find much. Anyone have suggestions on enduro rentals in the Boulder area? Any other advice welcome. Will be there late May and have never ridden the Rockies, figured I need to do something about that. Thanks!
  13. I am just getting word of this merger, later than some apparently.... no FB, etc. for me. I saw the schedule and it looks like crap. What is going to happen with Two Rivers? I can see this driving people further away and not fixing the some of the bigger issues like too many classes and little ride time. Any info would be appreciated.
  14. 2.3 million lb. boulder sitting across the highway, another 8.5 million lb. one dug an 8 foot deep trench. https://www.foxnews.com/us/colorado-highway-closed-boulder-rockslide-roadway I feel sorry for the folks in Rico and Telluride, no getting to Cortez to shop. At least the Rico trail system isn't going to be open for awhile.
  15. Would like to get out into trial riding more with my boys, 10 and 12. Looking for a group (or to set one up) where there is focus on kids in a safe environment on the trails. Possibly set up a monthly (or twice monthly) ride when it gets warmer. We dont have a camper but would tent overnight. Please let me know if there is a group like this or if anyone is interested is starting one. We are in Denver and would drive up to about 2 hours.
  16. Hi folks, I have read many conflicting reports on this place. Can anyone tell me if it's open or closed? Some have said it's open, some said closed, some said it's partly open. I'm confused. I'm looking for a place to ride this weekend, and the weather looks decent down there but I'm not interested in breaking the law or just doing quad donuts in a parking lot. Does anyone actually know? Thanks muchly!
  17. I guess this is kinda a public service announcement for those who ride the snow: Last Saturday two guys riding timbersleds near Vail Pass were buried in an avy. Unrelated, but in addition to that, 5 skiers too have perished at CO resorts in the last 5 days. As for avy danger, its apparently worse than CAIC says in at least some of the backcountry. Last Thursday (2/13), at about 10,500' near Vail, a guy dug a pit which disclosed about 1' of sugar snow at the bottom of the rest of the snowpack which was about 8' deep. He also got the column of snow to fail at a couple spots higher up in his tests. The sugar is remnants of our early season snow storms (remember Oct & Nov?) and its pretty widespread I'd think. Hard to break off a slab that huge (hence CAIC moderate rating I guess) but if ya do.... Heres contents of a post a friend shared. I don't know any of the parties involved. If you do, you have my condolences. One of the 3 riders was only partially buried and survived. I'm posting this to try to get the word out so people know to exercise caution. (Edit - maybe this should be in the snow bike forum too which I just discovered?) "Yesterday was a extremely heavy day out in the Backcountry... as our group of 6 were heading back to the trucks, we were notified by a group of riders that a couple of Timbersledders were buried in an avalanche. We all rushed as quickly as we could to help assist in locating the guys. Between 10 of us, we each dug and dug for hours. The riders were buried so deep that none of our probes could reach them. We finally located each of the riders at a depth of around 20 feet. It was clear that there was no chance of survival from early on. Everyone involved in the search executed the quickest recovery we could, but after 5 hours of digging and uncovering the riders, Vail Mountain Rescue finally arrived and we were immediately told to suspend the recovery. They felt it was too late into the evening and we were still in avalanche danger. We all made it out of the woods around 9pm, hearts heavy. We want to thank our friends and other riders who worked alongside us no questions asked to get the buried riders out. We extend our deepest condolences and sympathies to the families... @ Vail, Colorado" Be safe out there.
  18. Looking to ride up there tomorrow and Sunday, sounds like the lower trails are open just wondering how low the snow line is on the higher trails
  19. Any ideas ? I'd sure like to find a place off the Rampart Range road. I found Dutch Fred that seems to be off the road but there is no information about how to get a campsite there, or what kind of camping it is. I know you can only have a fire in designated camp sites. Don't roast me on this guys, I'm just getting back into camping 🙂 Thank you ! https://www.recreation.gov/camping/poi/244960
  20. Didn't know if I should resurrect and older thread or start new, decided to start new. I am looking to have my head inspected, reconditioned, seats cut and guides replaced... so I can install new valves and hardware. Is Vickery still a solid place to go to have your Yamaha machine work done? The older posts in here about this question confirm what I've always know about Vickery... but you know how things can change due to personnel changes, time, etc... So are they still solid today? Are there other options? I could send it out to Millennuim or Fastheads, etc... but figured I'd try to get it done locally. Why? This is a 17 year old bike with no known service history on the motor. I knew I'd be rebuilding it someday soon just because. I picked up this 04 WR250F over the winter. I have had a chance to ride it off-road a few times at Penrose and it runs pretty good. It is a little harder to start than I think it should be when warm. Other than that, no complaints. Currently have the top end torn down, was just going to check/shim valves, but saw evidence of timing chain stretch. Since I was having to dig a little deeper to replace that, I decided to do the rebuild now .
  21. Trying to mitigate Alpine Loop damage. https://durangoherald.com/articles/371029-youth-corps-to-work-on-motorized-trails
  22. Anyone mess around with the custom trail routes on COTREX that want to share? Well I tried to link one of my routes but it didn't work. So if anyone knows how to share their routes, let me know.
  23. I'm looking for a riding partner to ride with in the Woodland Park/ Divide area. Weekdays only (Mon, Tues, Wed). I'm 46, married with kids, responsible/ law abiding, etc. etc. If you're interested shoot me a message and we can discuss. Thanks.
  24. I'll be visiting friends in Breck this summer and would like to rent a skoot while them there. Can anyone recommend a rental agency that offers dual sports or adv bikes? Ideal would be something like a CRF450L, maybe KTM/Husky 690. I'd go up to maybe a GS800, but nothing bigger.
  25. Rampart Range Motorcycle Management Committee just posted this on their Facebook page. VERY short notice, but if you're on the front range here's an opportunity to be heard. I am going to make the Thornton meeting tomorrow if anyone wants to join @Hammy. @Donny18 @robacks @drakes67 @catmanz440 @dmac1 @G9.5 Dear Colorado OHV Enthusiast, The National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC) is a non-profit 501C3 organization dedicated to creating a positive future for off-highway vehicle recreation. You can learn more at www.nohvcc.org. NOHVCC is working in partnership with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), US Forest Service (USFS), Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) and the Colorado Off-Highway Vehicle Coalition (COHVCO) to create a Statewide OHV Action Plan. To make this happen we need your assistance in learning how the land management agencies can better provide access to high quality OHV recreation experiences in the state of Colorado. In 2014 NOHVCC and the BLM partnered to develop a National Motorized Recreation Action Strategy designed to help the BLM develop individual state action plans for providing high quality OHV opportunities and develop partnerships to help maintain those opportunities. This process has created state specific OHV action plans in 5 other states where the BLM manages public land. In Colorado this process was expanded to include all land management agencies thanks to grant funds received by COHVCO through CPW. The strategies will be used to help guide future travel management and resource management decisions; however, the strategies are NOT part of a specific travel management plan. In developing these strategies, you as an enthusiast will have a chance to share your thoughts on the following topics: • What OHV activities are taking place on public land in Colorado? • Where in general are these OHV activities taking place? • What OHV experiences are you looking for on public land? • Where might these missing OHV activities fit on public land in Colorado? • What could the land managers do better to enhance your OHV recreation experience? Without your help and the help of other OHV recreationalists like you, we will not be able to answer the questions above and you could miss out on a chance to provide ideas that could lead to enhancements to the areas and trail systems you enjoy. To help us gather this very important information, NOHVCC will hold two series of community listening sessions and we ask that you participate in one of these sessions. The first round of listening sessions will be on the Front Range in January, with the second set taking place on the Western Slope in April. The first round of listening sessions: • January 27: Alamosa, CO; Alamosa Family Recreation Center, 2222 Old Sanford Rd, 81101, 6pm-9pm • January 28: Pueblo, CO; Pueblo Convention Center, 320 Central Main Street, 810036, 6pm-9pm “Creating a Positive Future of Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation” P.O. Box 229, Great Falls, MT 59403 Phone: 800-348-6487 Fax: 406-454-9142 e-mail: trailhead@nohvcc.org • January 29: Colorado Springs, CO; Colorado Springs Marriott, 5580 Tech Center Drive, 80919, 6pm-9pm • January 30: Vail, CO; DoubleTree by Hilton Vail, 2211 N Frontage Road W, 81657, 6pm-9pm • January 31: Greenwood Village, CO; 6pm-9pm, Fay Myers Motorcycle World, 9700 E Arapahoe Road, 80112, 6pm-9pm • February 1: Denver, CO DoubleTree by Hilton Denver-Thornton, 83 E 120th Avenue, Denver, 80233, 9am-12pm • February 3: Fort Collins, CO; Fort Collins Mariott, 350 E Horsetooth Rd Fort Collins, 80525, 6pm- 9pm The second round of listening sessions will be announced in a separate letter coming to you at a later date. These sessions are not being organized by the BLM, USFS, or CPW, however staff from these agencies have been invited to attend these meetings as participants and will be on hand to discuss current travel management processes and how your suggestions could help shape future decisions. The meetings will also be an excellent time for you to meet national, state and local agency personnel. These organizations are interested in developing partnerships with individuals and organizations to improve the management of OHV recreation on public lands. The more information we gather, the higher the quality of each statewide strategy and action plan, so please participate in the listening sessions and invite your fellow club members and riding buddies as well. For more information on the meetings please contact Marc Hildesheim, NOHVCC Project Manager, at 208-416-3557 or at marc@nohvcc.org. Sincerely, Duane Taylor Executive Director
