I don't know if it has been posted, but the reason Cottonwood pass is closed is not because of snow. Closed because they are paving it.:giveup:

That's perfect.. they are a good used set just spares for who ever might need them.. hopefully no one does .. tkc 80s with about 1000 miles on them ..


What size & what bike(s) will fit? I'm running E-07's F&R, but the rear will need replacing at some time in the next 1,500 miles or so. I have an '09 KLR 650. Willing to throw in some cash if that's what it takes.

One month from today I leave Conroe, hitting Tombstone AZ, stop by Boot Hill on way out to the meet up to get a good laugh. Will do the Ride with the group then continue on to the Canadian Border.Planning to sleep on ground wherever we land then in hotels every now and then like when i need a shower. Looking forward to this adventure.

My work is killing me! I honestly won't know until a week prior to the trip, will I be able to go. If I do, I really want to do the whole thing all up to Canada myself. I'll be on a KTM 690 Enduro r. Camp whenever I can, and occasional hotel for a shower and nice rest.

Slow and steady DR650 rider here planning to camp except at Silver City and Salida, CO. Agrees with misterk in that riding groups will very likely sort themselves out by early on day 1. I'm solo riding to Silver city from El Paso and looping back to Albuquerque and the end to store the bike and fly home. I am looking forward meeting and joining up with other like minded (i.e. slow and cautious) riders.
