    It would be great to take a minimum of 10 Hooligans this year if we decide to do it...

    We ALWAYS do the second week. It has always averaged better weather...
    Plus the Koko team had a week to work the bugs out... :thumbsup:

    In all honesty, if an eBiker attempted to pass me on the Kokopelli trail, I would make sure they past on the outside and give them a nudge into exposure oblivion. :whistling:

    Is this seriously being considered? When I asked last year, you guys all poo-pooed the idea. Except Hot Dog Steve @Stkx66 ... He's always ready to roll!

    Okay. So here is the deal.
    Right now. Nobody feels they are ready to ride. I feel that way right now too. Sign up is in what... 4 days at the time of this post:

    upload_2021-1-23_8-25-27.png

    The ONLY reason I would do this ride again is if I'm going with a bunch of buds.
    So let me put it this way... I'm in if you are in. Do not let this ride scare you. All of you have the muscle memory from years of riding to do this ride. This can be a putt everyday.

    We don't have to do this, you got to just simply just want to.

    So who will commit?

    Yeah, the Hightower was pretty perfect for most of the ride.

    Hardtail guy here.....the last 25 miles....would not be fun on a hardtail. Or, I'll rephrase it this way.....it would be a shame to ride for 2.5 days and then be handcuffed for the final .5 day on probably the best part of the entire ride.

    You been riding like a Banshee! I have been lax again this winter but have found that knowing the ride inside and out and muscle memory gets me through it just fine.

    I'm in however I will also buy the cancelation insurance in case something pops up at work or home that prevents me from going. Now... remember that baller who had that super large tent 2 years ago? I'm looking for a taller tent I can stand up in for this year.
    Those clouds in the background never made it past those mountains. We had perfect weather for my first time riding Kokopelli in 2019.
