Hi Utards, those of you that know me know that I enjoy sharing and posting ride reports. However, the last 3 weeks or so have been a whirlwind of activity. If you are interested in knowing what has been going on, please see here:

It has something to do with this:

I know this one!

There's a wonderful 65 mile loop from Hobble Creek, with only about 1 mile of road. All the rest is single-track, closed to ATVs. Start at Kirkman Hollow on R Fk Hobble Cr road. We usually do it in about 4 - 5 hours, but there're options for many extra miles of singletrack and jeep/ atv trails.

I think it's the best tight-n-twisty mountain trail in Utah. Malcolm Smith was quoted to say it's the best offroad mountain trail he's ridden.

Most of it is well-marked and on many maps, and many Utards will know it. But there're a couple wonderful sneaks to cut out the road sections.

PM me and we can hook up for a beer and I'll mark your map.

Paul,
I pulled into camp and mentioned to Dave that I'd really hoped to see you there. He said I'd just missed you by a couple of hours. I was probably secretly hoping for some of your famous pancakes like the ones you made for us at the party outside of Telluride.

Hey, Mike!!

Sorry I missed you! If I were on a KLR like in Colo I might have stayed longer but I was stressing getting that 700 lb "dual sport" back to pavement! Maybe we can do pancakes on the next Dirty campout!

Our plan is to slab up to Kalispell and spend a day at Glacier, then head back through Lolo Pass and cut across the Cascades to end up back on slab at Blackfoot, ID. This is all 2-up, so no gnarly trails on this trip for us.[/QUOTE]

Hey Rostere, its been awhile since we have rode together, its funny the wife and i were just talking about doing a ride up to glacier park and maybe ride into canada for a bit also. but sprinkeling in some dirt sounds like a blast too. when you guys heading out?

I am camping tonight in Logan because my wife is riding in an MS charity ride. Can someone recommend a few hours worth of fun riding for me and my DRZ? I will be alone, unless anyone wants to join in?
My main difficulty is that I have to be back in SLC to pick up a family member at the airport at noon.

Millville Canyon to the peak of Mt. Logan would be fun, about 5,000' in elevation change, but the way up is mellow through Millville. I'd plan 3hrs down and back, or you could make a loop through Millvillle Canyon, Mt. Logan, Right Hand Fork, and take hwy 89 ~10 miles down Logan Canyon (~4hrs). Not sure about the snow conditions.

You can make the airport from downtown Logan in 1:20, but they are doing roadwork through Sardine. I'd budget an extra 30 minutes.

I'd ride with you, but I'm without a bike until mid-day.

If you have a piece of cardboard box laying around, I've found just ripping off small squares of cardboard and stuffing them under the spoons works great as a rim protector.

Let me know if you want to ride again. Also, I would be interested to look at your te410 lighting wiring so I can I can wire my te610 as well as your Ducati valve tool too! -Dan
