    Barring any fiascos, I shall be there. Haven't been able to ride all week, so it'll be nice to just zip around a bit. Look for the Blue helm and jacket on a black DR650.

    ok, so it looks like the weather is gonna hold today, we are still meeting at the above location, just show up or if you want my number them pm me and i'll send it... we usually dont wait but if anybody wants to go, show up @ 6 or just go up to 12th street and keep going west until you cross the tracks (about 8 miles from the light at 1900 and 12th) thats where we'll be... or 'round about that area...

    damn! that didnt take long to put them up! man, what a crazy evening and all this reminds me of the list "reasons to love your motard" --> when we lay 'er down it does tens of dollars of damage, vs's hundreds or thousands....

    That looks interesting.
    I wanted to come out today but found out I have strep throat so it didn't work out. I blame it on the weather. Oh well we need to get something together this next week if the weather is good. It looks like i missed out. Any ideas for a good ride this week let me know.

    yeah man, get better, strep is no joke, we still have lots of riding ahead... but you did miss a pretty spectacular crash... an example of what happens when you dont use the rear brake to catch a wheelie, luckily he walked away, and the bike can be fixed, but damn it was crazy, even more so was that starskey got a pic of it right before it got wadded up (see pic 3) ... it was cool to finally ride with another sumo rider though the SB rider is currently at davis hospital with a poss broken elbow and some road rash on his knee....

    Default Miller supermoto

    Anybody make it out to Miller this past weekend ? Was it wet out there?

    I was going to come out and watch but thought it was probably pretty nasty out there.

    We need some good supermoto spots here in SLC.... Anyone have a favorite run close to town? If such a thing exists that is?....

    May be doable, depends on the weather between now and then. I've got stuff to get taken care of before Saturday that I need good weather for. BTW, I live in Layton so it wouldn't take a whole lot of planning...

    Hello phonebem2!

    With Metal Supermang in Roy, me in Clinton, and you in Layton.....we need to get our crap together and go run the canyons more often in the evenings. I'm going to be "out of pocket" for a few days , but will try to set up a ride when I am once again available to go riding.

    Hooliganism? Sh*t downtown is great. South Temple, turn up "A" street and jump over 1st Ave. The avenues have all sorts of fun kickers and tight roads. Up near the Capitol as well. For longer rides, Mirror Lake Highway is open now. Also, if you take Emigration Canyon up and then connect onto East Canyon, that is a really fun run up to the lake (not the East Canyon Reservoir). That one is close to the city and a little longer enjoyment.

    /\ Yeah I recently went to a car meet and we went up east canyon over past Rockport and to Morgan. It was a good drive but would be a hundred times better on a bike. I still have to get my motorcycle license before I can go on any real rides haha. Those natural jumps in downtown sound like a blast. I will have to go check them out sometime.

    For the guys in the Ogden area, (or anyone else who would want to make the trip) I was thinking about making a run over the Divide and up Old 'Basin tomorrow night. If I get the chance to talk to him before then, I have a neighbor with a new WRX who might be along too. PM me with contact info if your interested. Derek, you're already on the list of contacts.

    I really haven't decided yet, it kind of depends on if and who responds along with the weather. I'm thinking we probably won't be meeting any earlier than about 5 since I want to do a quick oil change before heading out too.

    Well for those of you who haven't looked outside the weather forcast of fair-to-partly-suck with increasing suckyness is coming true. We'll have to try again sometime, maybe next week.

    It was an incredible storm today. Glad nobody was out in it. Next week definately looks much better. Keep us all posted

    FYI for anyone who usually does the Mt. Green-Trapper's-Pineview Loop, in addition to the construction on 84 they are currently tar and chipping the road from the exit to Trapper's... FUN! I can't tell you how much fun it is getting pelted by tar-covered gravel while trying desperately to keep from losing your front end.

    Now for an update to my post about UDOT "fixing" roads, I went for a ride Friday with some friends (we had the day off) only to find UDOT has been kind enough to not only tar and chip the road from the Mt Green Exit to Trapper's, but also most of Trapper's Loop as well as a good part of the east side of North Ogden Divide... Thank God they haven't done anything to Monte Cristo Rd and Old Snowbasin... Yet...

    As long as they stay away from Old Basin and Monte. I rode to Bear Lake and stayed this last weekend and all I can say is we need to get everyone that is local together and make a ride of it. It was way fun. Logan canyon had the most fun I have had this summer. If your interested let me know and we will set something up.

    We went over Monte Cristo and through Woodruff. The whole ride back from the top of Monte we must have averaged 80-85 and didn't have a single car in our lane until after Causey. I'd agree that ride is a must for the Sumo group. I have to admit though, the WRX was hating life trying to keep-up with a Super Duke and a Tuono coming back, they'd hit 140+ and it was all the WRX could do to hit 103 indicated...

    I am interested. I live in SLC but could get my bike to Logan and start the ride from there. Problem is I am out of town on business for a few weeks. Ride sounds great though.

    OK its almost Friday again and that means time to try another ride. Since UDOT has effectively ruined Trappers and N. Ogden, I was thinking about an East Canyon run... Possibly over the mountain to the top of Emmigration. Who's interested?

    No problem man. You know where to find them now. We need to go on a ride soon for sure and that little jump is fun to mess around on but you have to bail quick with where its at.

    Not recently. That jump is just right off that road and cops are always on that road. Hey look at it this way if they do come you can always just bail through the parkinglot and down those back roads. Poof you're gone.
