Cool, although I'm on a Monster, not a Kawi or Yamaha. I have a buddy on a 'Busa, though, does that count?

I left work early and went up to Garden Valley the other Friday when it was warm and practically had the road to myself.

I've been out every day this last week, Weds in the drizzle was by far the best :thumbup:

Bummer, I was looking for a ride Saturday since my buddy bailed out on me. I ended up going to Garden Valley by myself. I nodded and said hi to some Harley guys at the gas station up there and they just ignored me. So I didn't feel bad when one of them couldn't get his bike to start and had to struggle to push it up a little hill for a bump start.

I ride Bogus Basin fairly often during the week, since it only takes me a few minutes to get there via Hill road.

I'll probably be out there on thurs. Saturday was fun, I met a guy on a red 749s on the way up, and on the way down, I slowed just intime to find officer friendly coming up.

I waved, he waved, I though silently "good thing he wasn't here 10 seconds ago ;)

Lots of bycycles, but still that road can be fun at 40 :thumbup:

Good to know, I thought it was safe up there. The only time I've seen a cop was when the road was blocked off last summer for a small fire. I'll look out for you if I'm up there on Thursday--I usually get there around 5:00 or so. What color is your bike?

No my 02SVS still has the stock pipe. I will be the only SVS rider in full gear though ;)

What year is your Monster?, They have one for sale up at Happy Trails on Chinden for $4500 or so, I looked but can't justify it right now.

I hope this crappy weather goes soon.

Yah.. it's been in process for ... a month now... you know how it is when deadlines aren't met, but hey it's a friend airbrushing it so, he is doing me a huge favor. I can't complain one bit... I told him to go wild on my bike and suprise me when I see it for the first time Friday. *Kneeling & Praying*

There is only sand in a few corners, I usually ride within my sight limits and take it easy the first time trhough. Plus I don't go up to far, Just a bout 1/2 way. that way I know what's up. I usually turn around at the wide concrete strip near the bottom on the way down then go back up for a few miles then back down, repeat as needed ;)

At least you're not missing any prime weather. It sounds like you'll have a one-of-a-kind bike when it's finished.
