Me likes... I just sold one because it wasn't getting enough use. I had a high compression piston and a pumper carb, scott's damper, desert tank, light rack for gear. awesome bike. My XR650R is set up the same way, and I just do more big adv rides than super technical single track.

Tomorrow's Slab Twisties are still on...

I'm pretty sure I almost ran over Harcus today near Aragonite. He just kept motoring, my ADV sticker didn't even earn me a salute.
But, I was driving my huge whale of a van down a trail. Trying out a few extra inches of lift on the family adventure wagon/tiny camper.

Desert dog

We hiked the knolls to get away from hunters... not so far from aragonite!




Yesterday's slab tour w/ KCM1 was a lot of fun. Visibility on Guardsmans/Wolf Creek was about 10 ft through frozen fog! all in all a great time after my fingers thawed out!

Hmmm...Could be. I find you have to be careful with those that try to trick you with Adv stickers...Not that I am paranoid. Or maybe I was in the ozone. Sunny day, good tracks, good bike vibs...gotta love it.

Had a blast riding w Fano yesterday and Steve Kimball... Didn't realize so many folks were out in the west desert yesterday. Makes sense though - it was awesome...

Typical Fano fashion rode very fast and pretty hard, so hard there there was no time to take pics, particularly of all of the really really good stuff. Cherry creek is aaawesome... Particularly the rippin, tight single track. I felt like I was tree skiing! 140 miles total...

Here are a couple pics...

it was greasy and slick as snot in parts, Steve took possible the most dramatic, flailing, arms out/land on your back wipeout I've ever, seen luckily just into some greasy mud pit... Here's the aftermath:



towards the end of the night with the sun getting low. awesome, so cool to know that some of this awesome riding is so close...

^^^ Ryman: I'll take that as a compliment.

DCH: nice pics.


When i was headed home from the Knolls in the truck there was some dude on a Yamaha on the dirt road in Delle riding a wheelie and keeping up with freeway traffic, like 75 mph!

Saw a couple good sized groups of duals heading up Big Cottonwood yesterday (sunday) around 11am, I took my wife up to Silver Fork Lodge for some breakie on our motorcycle for our anniversary, it was a bit chilly at 9am but beautiful none the less.
Still need to get in on a group ride

I am glad you had fun on our Tour de Cherry Creek dieselcruserhead. We hit a little bit of everything what cc has to offer. Fast double track, tight single track, some sand, few hill climbs and couple of whoops.

Perfect CC season. Get it while it lasts. Soon all the north side stuff will be too wet and we will be stuck pounding through whoops.

Been a lurker of this site for awhile, first post ! lol

Anyways moved to SLC three years ago from Seattle with my Drz and just very surprised in regards to the lack of dual-sports in the area. Guess everyone has an atv, cooler, camo and shotguns instead...

Hoping to get a few more rides in before it starts snowing :)

This time of year park on cherry creek Rd. There is a lot of stuff in the low grass lands but also fun stuff in the mountains.

Here ya go park here head down to right after the cattle guard and there will be single track to the right. Its a little off but it will get you close. If you scroll down the Rd to the south you can zoom in and see single track leading all over.
Cherry Creek Rd, UT
