After all the work that Bryce did on the Honda, we decided to put it up on CraigsList and sell it. The Honda was awesome, but after riding it... I wanted something a little more modern. So we sold it for a good price and I went shopping.... After about a week, I ran across a Denver posting for a 2001 YZ426F... Identical to Bryce's bike. I jumped on it. Love the bike!!! It didn't take the boys long, to convince me to put the bike on a trail. My first ride was Captain Jacks, just west of Colorado Springs. Love the bike!!!!
In preparation for the White River, Colorado Off-Highway Vehicle Coalition Rendezvous in Meeker, Colorado.... Tyler and I joined a handful of riders from RMAR and COHVCO. We spent the weekend riding the area, learning about the access and trails. Joining us in the hotel was Terry D. (Danger Davis). We have a blast and it was a good time with Tyler.
Day 3 found everyone headed back to Grand Junction for the drive home to Colorado Springs. We deviated from the Kokopelli, running some pavement and then riding the 'tracks' for many, many miles (railroad tracks). We all arrived back home, safe and sound.

For the past several years, I have been told stories of the Kokopelli Trail and had a great desire to ride it. The trail starts to the west of Grand Junction, CO and ends at Moab, UT. The riding is mostly cruising tails and roads, but there are certainly some challenging areas. This was the first, official ride of the newly formed Rocky Mountain Adventure Riders, our American Motorcycle Association Group. We had a total of 25 riders, which made for three great days of riding and comraderie. On Day #1, we rode from Fruita, CO to Moab, UT. It was about 140 miles and took about 12 hours.
