I missed out riding Utah two years ago with the weather and had to go straight to AZ, but am planning on being in the State for a good bit this trip. I ride a Ktm250XC, have trials tires and knobbies, and am up for pretty much anything anyone wants to do.

Sorry to poach your thread, but send me a PM if you're interested and able to get out and do some riding!

I'm open for anything and am happy to be in the State for a while... The bike is mainly set up for tighter trails, not wide open desert stuff, but if there are good things to ride in the desert I can work on that.

Unfortunately it's not plated, no. We don't really have to worry about that here, and it's a 2T... I don't mind risking a ticket though for a couple miles of pavement... ;-)

Best stuff will be the north of Utah and park/trailer off Kane Creek Road. They ticket in Moab without plates. Good fun day trip stuff, will be fun. Likely good amounts of riders when down there too, just FYI..

I do.. I don't ride around here much (nor is there much to ride, moto at least) but there is great stuff in the Uintas near by. Definitely feel free to PM me if you'd like to meet up...

Hey, for the record fellow Utards, I was the one who recommended Medium Driver to post here in the Utards regional forum. I met Graham in Germany week before last while there supporting my son as he rode the ISDE for Team USA. He (Medium Driver) was there in support of some of his friends on the Canadian ISDE Team.

Many of you followed that thread, and I thought this would be a great way to show him some of the Utah awesomeness. My schedule is pretty tight through the rest of the month so I was hoping some of you might be able to show him around.

Thanks Mike,

It seems like a couple of plans are starting to come together which is great. Hoping to spend a good deal of time in Utah...

Speaking of ISDE, here are some of my shots from it (Promise I will get to finding the ones of Josh, just have not had the time prepping for this trip): http://www.flickr.com/photos/vertica...7631659732388/

Really looking forward to arriving in Utah, and the weather seems to be looking good for a good while yet.

Thank you again for pointing me in the right direction.

Well it sounds we should be able to get you sorted out. I'm at the very north end of the state. If weather allows we'll have a good time on single track on our 250's. I have a guest room that you are welcome to. If its too cold or snowy, you can head further south to Frog's land. If it's still to cold or snowy we'll be able to get you set up om some great desert trails further south.

Hey, any of you perverts up for riding Saturday?

Ideally I'd be looking to do something starting in the morning, and within a couple hours of SLC that's nice scenic riding. I'm not a great dirt rider (although the bike is pretty much AWESOME) but can do most "normal" stuff without too much drama. Single track is fine, as long as we don't get too crazy - Just don't put me on a smooth fire road with little tiny ruts in it....... oh, or deep sand.

I can carry my bike on my car, or pull someone's trailer if we wanted to car pool and take a couple bikes to a trail head or whatever.

Tool loan?

Anyone have an electrical wire fishing thingy I could borrow for a couple weeks? I'm talking about the thing to help pull wires through conduit.
