Trials play day

Anybody interested in playing on the trials bikes at Elberta on Sunday, October 14? Am coming down to ride in the desert the 12th and 13th and would be very close. Could easily throw the trialer in the truck to keep the XR company. Mark from the great state of Idaho and the dunes capitol of the world.

Motorcycle Abuse

Hi all, I'm about to commit some motorcycle abuse with my wife. We are going to ride my KTM 950SE 2 up from Hanksville UT, to Springdale UT.

We are going to put my bike in the back of my truck and drive from Denver to Hanksville leave the truck in Hanksville and ride to Springdale. for a wedding. This is Oct 3rd through the 7th.
So I have 2 questions.
1)Does anyone know where a good place to leave my truck is in Hanksville? (We will arrive 7am Thur Oct 4th.)
Fri Oct 5th the wife is getting massage, pedicure, and what ever else in Springdale.
2) Recommendation for a good day ride out of Springdale, UT 1up on a 950SE with no GPS? (Hopefully getting sufficiently dirty)
Thanks!!

Go here. Then ride endless trails and dirt roads west of here. No map or GPS needed. Just orient via geography.

No gps?

You may want to hit Notom Rd from just west of hanky to the Burr Trail to boulder, Hell's backbone Rd to Escalante, then Smoky Mtn Rd. to Big Water, then slab or something through Kanab (likely awesome dirt though) over to Zions...

2 up Smoky Mtn Rd would be a bit of a rodeo in places...

I hope your wife has a ass of steel or lots of cushion because the SE "passenger" seat has about 1/2 inch of padding.

Did someone say Airhawk?

Nicely put Frog. You either just called his wife a hard ass or a fat ass.

BTW which is it?

Let's keep things in perspective...

If I can take this

and her

and ride over this

while she doin this

the whole way...
Surley it isn't too much to take her

on this

though this

for 6-8 hours through some of the most beautiful scenery this country has to offer!

Your concern for my wife is heartfelt, but frankly I was much more concerned with the misuse of my motorcycle.
