It was a good trip. The white rim was challenging towards the end, especially on the big bikes through a couple of sandy parts. F8 did better than the versys with a rear tire on the front rim.

After that we stayed mainly on the roads except for a short jaunt through the valley of the gods and up moki dugway. The F8 held its own on the highway as well, probably those underestimated german horses.

4 parks in 4 days, not bad.

Still working on the report, but here are some pics. mtrider16
