    Mount Evans ride 9/1/19

    Riding to the top of Mt Evans this Sunday so anyone and everyone welcome, please keep the asshatery at home if you decide to come with, this will be a mellow and noob paced ride, I don't give a shit about speeding in the canyons anymore as those days are long gone for me, just looking to end the season on a good note, so want to get one good day of riding in and making it home with a good kind of tired before putting the R1 away for the year. I'll be in a yellow/black R1 by the air machine.

    When: Sunday 6:30 am with KSU at 6:45

    Where: MoCo (Morrison Conoco on 470 and Morrison Road for those who lurk and don't know perhaps) then riding up a few miles to Country Road Cafe for breakfast or you can meet us there around 8ish am if you don't want to get up that early. After Mt Evans we can reconvene at the base and see if anyone wants to keep riding further or get lunch or whatever.

    Gear such as boots, gloves, helmet obviously recommended but well you're all adults so wear whatever you want at the end of the day. Just have in mind that at the summit is cold as fuck and it'll be in the mid 90's when we head back into town. All in all weather looks phenomenal for this weekend!!!

    Hope to see some new and also familiar faces, I know it's early but I hate putting up with bullshit traffic for no reason so I'd rather head up early and have a nice mellow ride plus you can always nap when you come back home or sleep in on Monday anyways

    Shit! My season was over before it even started. I broke both my wrists and my left elbow in June. Right wrist is in 12 pieces. Have some cool pics, too bad you can't post on here anymore.

    Really sucks watching the bikes and RV sit for almost a year!!

    I was sitting at a red light. It turned green, I slowly let out the clutch, got in the middle of the intersection, started to lean left for the turn and the bike spun out. I have it on video, data logging and GPS. Kim was also behind me. None of it explains what happened. She said it looked like an invisible hand reached down and knocked the bike out from under me.

    The engine never revs, but somehow it spun the rear and hi-sided me. Since it was at such a low speed, I didn't get catapulted off the side. Instead, I basically slid off the back. I put my arms out behind me to catch myself and SNAP!!
