Porcupine Rim, 6 hours, 34 miles, 4 friends, no carnage, no rain (but lots of wind), and dinner at the moab brewery... (impdude, RRB, Jodi and yhours truly). In Fruita now hoping the weather forecast is wrong...
A few more
We only saw 6 other people out on the whole loop which is amazing for Porc Rim.
we don't get that sort of scenery over here
so which bike did you take, gary?
Yeti and SS
I brought the 575 for Porc Rim but will use the SS for Fruita (well, except for Moore Fun which is more fun on a full suspension).
Yeah, if you wanted to sit inside and watch it rain, you could have done that here this weekend...

TRAIL KUBUKI CORNDOGGER
Yeah right. Things sure have changed in central Utah over the past 20 years - especially since the Escalante-Grand Staircase thing. Comfort Inns and Best Westerns have sprouted up all over tha place each touting "Free High Speed Internet and Continental Breakfast" which - at least at the Comfort Inn at Torrey turned out to be a WalMart computer with a shakey DSL and a bowl of NutriGrain bars.

Nobody cares what kind of bike you ride.
Great to see some Yeti action down there.
And the weather is GREAT here today!!!!
A few from Dave's camera.
Great pics Gary and thanx for putting up with me all weekend. I can't believe it, I'm so pissed, I'm still teatering on that clydesdale weight class after all that riding this weekend.
