From Monticello, we treked the 100 miles to Moab to get our tires changed at Arrowhead.
And ran into some problems with the route...this is at mileage 45.13 on the maps. The road no longer exists. We took the paved way around and met the trail again at 50.13.
The Aspen trees were thick as we climbed our last mountain before Moab.
Finally things started to look like Utah.
Moab at last, and a great little burger stand.
After eating we got to Arrowhead Motorsports so that Fred could change our tires. Fred isn't the friendliest person but was very helpful. After changing our tires, which he made look ridiculously easy, he helped me weld up my rack so that we could continue on.
We put Dunlop D606's on the bikes, front and rear. When we started we went with a 606 rear and Pirelli MT21 front. After riding on the 606 front, I can say that the MT21 has a harder compound and lasts longer. The 606 is the much better off-road front and handles better in the dirt and gravel. My .02.
From here we stayed in Moab and rode the White Rim Trail the next day.
