The Nevada 200 is postponed until October.  I want to go somewhere and ride so bad I can taste it... :o

Still planning this trip but read something yesterday that could throw a monkey wrench into the works.

https://www.aspendailynews.com/news/moab-area-closes-hotels-campgrounds-to-slow-spread-of-covid/article_0389119c-68c1-11ea-8de6-7749ef3ddc45.html

Still trying to figure out what they are saying. First they say they aren't taking reservations at hotels and campgrounds for 30 days. They are also saying this means on public lands. Does this mean pay sites on public lands or does this also include BLM boondocking sites as well. I will see what I can find out on Monday regarding this. The hope its just for the 30 days and then it will be over. read several places where this is being pushed by the small rural hospital in town being worried about an influx of more than they can handle and I get that. The service industry there is supportive but not for long.

Anyway, just throwing this out there for info. I will keep an eye on the situation, gather all the info I can and hope for the best.

Hmmm ......

Last week I had "travel guidelines/restrictions" placed on me from work......  its a healthcare thing.

These guidelines impact how and if I visit my out of state kids and elderly parents.  It will certainly impacts how I go screw around on a motorcycle in Utah. 

I probably need to bow out.  The distance and hoops of getting this ride approved likely will not happen for me.

Hope I can do this trip vicariously through one of you all's!

Not sure if it will happen for anyone. I'm holding out but understand the position you are in, my situation is similar but not as restricted. Damn virus

In evaluating the current state of affairs I have made the decision to cancel the Moab trip for this spring. Moab and the surrounding area have been shut down and I really don't see that changing before before this trip is supposed to happen.

I am hoping that maybe we can try again again in the fall. maybe around Fall Rally time.

Would love to go but doubt I’ll have a T7 by then.
Really wouldn’t fit in on the Beta.
Will try for 2021 or 2022 whenever Yamaha sends me one.
