Utah Lake water temp was 64 on May 1st. it is better then that now. I've been hitting it in the evenings with my boys. Try AF harbor at about 6:30 pm after work. Place is a ghost town and the water smooths out to near glass...

Welcome to Utardia. The only thing these guys here ride is Walrus' ...................

You picked a good year to move here, as stuff is drying out faster than ever in the mountains.

Got a boat? Double Moo and I can tell you the lakes.

As far as trails.... Trackhead, GSKev, Mcnight, Trailtwister and a few others
are mental maps of Utah.

Mountain Highs

I experienced the pleasure of trails biking with Frog and mini-Frog Saturday.







After a short time, I switched to a machine I could sorta control, and soon found a high mountain boner-vista.



Mount Nebo loop road is open (to vehicles narrow enough to sneak around the gate)




Forgot to mention I saw a bird.



Down to Turkey Valley, and up Maple Canyon. I noticed a lot of cars parked here, and had to checkitout.


I don't know why they call it 'Box Canyon'.


Near the ridge top ...



Coulda probly made it downhill through this snowdrift.



Looking at the map, I see it descends through 'Log Canyon', which had a certain early-season-deadfall' ring to it. I didn't see any BADB picker-uppers standing around, and it was 6:00 pm, so I chicken-shit turned around.

One last high mountain view, to the East looking down into Turkey Valley (Fountain Green, Moroni, etc).



Hauling ass through the construction zone, I got a little help checking my newly-recalibrated speedo...

Welcome to UT. Lots opening earlier than last year. I was hoping to head up above Timble Fork this weekend, but can't do it now.

Box canyon? Looks like they should call it something else.

XR650R cylinderectomy

The little clip i mentioned a few weeks ago is the piston pin wristpin thingy, so I'll be tearing my top end down if anyone wants to see how to do it. If you can rebuild a camp stove you wouldn't have any trouble w/ an XR! I won't be doing it for a week or so though.
