A little outside of Harrisville???

Awesome. I had the location and that river crossing right just forgot the name. They caught some of the rain and snow down there, nice to see its passable as I'll be attempting to cross that river with some buddies in a week and two days...!

Great trip / ride report... :)

Nice.

I used to take the family to Moab every Easter. My daughter asked if we could go this year.
Made me realize what a baby I've turned into. I told her it was too much hassle.

Good on ya for taking the time to spend with the little vermin while they still like you.

A shaft with a crack, isn't that a Hermaphrodite?

Fiche says they are only $40, less if you find a discount.

Ahhh....Havasupai, nice! Did it many years ago (1989 to be exact). I was in a cast up to my shoulder. Wrapped it in a bag and did some cliff diving. That was before the big floods that wiped out many of the pools.

Combining it with moto sounds like a great way to go.

That Whirly-bird was non-stop for the two days we were hike'n. We figured they must have gone through $10,000 of fuel while we were there. No wonder it was $60 each just to camp.
Oh, BTW. Next time I'll let the mule carry our camping gear.

Nice report.
Did you buy that 950 from Curtis, here in Logan?
I was pissed when he sold it, but if you have it now, then its all ok.
