Have a safe trip! I’m sitting in a sweltering train station looking at the weather next weekend and thinking your air conditioned truck sounds pretty good. If you were rolling to the west coast “on the way” to Palmer gulch i might take you up on the offer wink

Of course then I wouldn’t get to ride Lolo Pass....


*insert witty remark here*

Lolo Pass is an awesome road
My son and I rode it in July 2008
It is a road I still remember

I think you should stop on the Cumberland Plateau and kidnap Alan. Even if he can’t ride, what’s a BMWST event without Foot!?!

Sorry I couldn’t join the road trip but I’m leaving at dawn Weds, hope to make Beaver Creek CO by Thurs night. Will be in that general vicinity till Mon, so if anyone has any must-not-miss rides in central CO, please let me know!

Yes I copied Alan on an earlier e-mail saying he was welcome bike or not.

Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid-in-sideways, totally worn out, shouting, WOW, What a ride!
