    I just moved to the Springs from Chicago. I'm definitely interested in getting together with some other Apes to ride the twisties.

    lots of great rides

    West of you.....
    just be aware here of the sand you will find in the canyons...
    be careful riding hard into the many blind corners

    until we get some real spring thunderstorms to wash away the sand and resulting dust....


    and when you find sand - not to worry -relax and get used to the step outs and front end push and the Mille will recover.....

    While I disagree that it's bad form, he wasn't even poopooing drag racing (and I know poo poo, i have a newborn). He just said it wasn't _his_ favorite style of racing.

    Besides, who doesn't like to make fun of NASCAR? Even nascar fans make fun of nascar. People anymore don't even know that SC stands for Stock Car. Those are _not_ stock cars... They're not even symmetrical cars!

    If I was writing history, prohibition evaders wouldn't have turned into nascar forefathers, but rally racing forefathers instead.

    But I digress...

    Exclamation April 2011 Canyon conditions

    Just a short note on the recent canyon conditions I encountered –and all of us must understand it is still April here in the Rockies. The recent snow caused me to find pervasive sand –in apexes and in corner entries – with enough occurrences to cause unwelcome step outs and surprises. This was Lee Hill, Left Hand, Peak to Peak and Boulder Canyons. I am confident Coal Creek, Golden Gate and other canyons in Colorado will be the same. Be careful and I would await the anticipated rains this week which should clean all of the canyons ….be safe out there

    What is even worse is that mag chloride residue crap that creeps out of the pavement under certain conditions. There was alot of that on the road from Morrison to Evergreen last time I went. I hate that shit, not only is it slippery but it like to ruin all kinds of vehicle parts. Haven't been up after this weeks rain but I'm hoping that it helped wash things up a bit. Hoping for some more spring down pours!

    I'm itching to start the season off at Bandimere & IMI and later get ready to go to High Plains. I would like to see an Ape group at any of these places!

    I'll definitely be looking to do some riding in the Springs area. I'm in Afghanistan right now, but will be back in a few months. Can't wait!
