just before Moab we had our first flat, total of 2 we would have on this trip.

the wife was a good sport, i had her trained at the end of this ride, she would pull my side cowling and grab the spare tubes while i was pulling the wheel. she would have it all buttoned up by the time i had the wheel on, new tube installed and the compressor topping off the tire. we were like a nascar team

first nights stop Bluff Utah and for her a required motel stop after our 300 plus that day.

next morning starts a little rough as we have a hard time finding Butler wash road, our first dirt road. For those who have rode it try not to laugh i now know its only 3 miles outside of town ha-ha.

Butler Wash Road

about 30 miles down the road i wreck in the only real section of sand on Butler, with the Katoom loaded up with gear and 2 people she really HATES the sand. only wreck of the trip so im happy and so is the wife

after the wife landed in the only sticker patch on the trail she decided to walk the short section of sand till i got the overburdened pig to hard pack. heres the walk of shame.
