Thanks for sharing the tracks for your ride last week. I see you took the scenic Grand Canyon overlook route on the north side. Looks like you skipped the Kane trail. Did you check it out at all?
I see you crossed 89 a few miles east of where we were planning. You said you turned back because of mud and the road was washed out. Would the washout have been passable on big bikes had it not been muddy?
BTW our ride up that way last month ended in a minor disaster. We never got past Chinle AZ.

I am supposed to be headed to somewhwere in souther Utah in about 10 days with another small group. They don't have any firm plan about where we are going. So I will just have to wait and see.
