Thanks man! I agree you do need to get out and ride more; seems every time I ask someone to go ride with me they can't so I quit asking. You see I'm no longer restricted to weekend only rides, very peaceful out there during mid week.

Good to hear from you again.

See you out there

I rode thru the Lucin/Grouse creek area last summer on my way to Jarbidge NV. NW of Grouse Creek in the 3-corner area there's an awesome dirt road that zigzags west to Jackpot, or you can get to Rogerson that way too. It's a lonely awesome place.

Goose creek road to Jackpot...

I keep thinking I will see you out there. Your rides always inspire me. Just placed an order with BDCW to insure I will have enough fuel and a few goodies. I am going to try and find this area, you give good direction. Time frame wise, you got to Utah on the first day of the ride?
Last weekend I went to Indian Creek @ Owyhee Reservoir, then up and over to Leslie Gulch. It was good to get familiar with the bike on technical (rocks) then have a nice fast ending. All just practice for a ride like yours. Ride safe!

You can't go wrong with the good folks at BDCW. I HIGHLY recommend the skid plate a little $$ but such a great product that I believe has saved my butt. Oops..... an endorsement. sorry.

On another note, I went on a fund raiser ride Sunday, and was offered a chance to ride a brand new KTM 500 EXC... OMG I should have never climbed on it 247 pounds (lighter than my DRZ) and a very responsive FI...

Oh why did I ride that dang thing.

Back on subject. Once the snow melts and the mud dries out (real soon) you can pretty much do dirt all the way over to Oakley or Jackpot depending on which one turns your fancy. South Hills are about to open up.


See you out there

Sam Sam, looks like you had fun . sorry southern Utah didnt work out but I see you made it to Box Elder.
the sun tunnels are neat and the spiral jetty is fun to walk out on when the lake is low. when I was a younger man we use to go camp and ride all over out there. lots of open space you can run out of gas real fast if your planning is not up to par.
see you this summer, I hope. Dutchjohn

Sam,

Remember when you were in Hawaii and we would post a ride report and you would respond like this?
Now your able to ride and we're swamped, and unable to ride like we would like to so turn about is fair play, correct?

At any rate thought you would be interested in knowing Alan's Grandfather was an interpreter for the internment camps, and it broke his heart the way Japanese-American people were treated.

Looks like a great Ride, I am envious and can't wait until we get to ride with you now that we will be living closer!

Glad to be of service, and YES I appreciate the response. Feels good to be the recipient. That is interesting about Alan's Grandfather. I just think that without study and learning from past mistakes (history classes) they will repeat.

Hey Dave, I am glad my ride was inspirational but your rides are always EPIC. Thoroughly enjoy reading your RR . So, what's this years then...... "Lunch at Jiggs" Looking forward to it. What ever it is I know it'll be good.

Nice!!!

nice ride report - I hope to get out there within the next couple weeks. There's some great riding there - If you get a chance check out some of the trails around the Silver Island mountains and even the Pony Express which is south of I80. It makes a nice secluded loop around the lake.


here's a pic from the Silver Island mountains
