Toroweap Ride Report

Southern based Utards with easy daytrip access to Toroweap. Ride report here: http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...725976&page=40

Sampler pics for those too lazy to click:

As always, the Schoolhouse is looking good.




Bikes and riders at Tuweep.




At the overlook.




All roads clear and no mud on Mount Trumbull. A few silt patches. No washboard from Toroweap to Colorado City. Similarly, road from St. George to Mt. Trumbull Schoolhouse very smooth. Almost no washboard.

Pluric - thanks for the link to your old Toroweap RR. Good stuff.

We (family trip) just spent five days down there. "All the sheep go to Toroweap", you guys need to expand your horizons! There's so much more to see than just Toroweap, and some killer riding below the rim if you spend some time checking out the maps. You can camp out there and not see anyone for several hundred miles...........

At the end of that road is one of the best campsites ever.........but I won't say where it is on the interwebz. Best to find it yourself.

Leaving Sunday with a UHaul to Orcas Island,WA with the Tiger in tow. Gonna take 12-14 days to come home the long way, the map is just a guideline, plan to hit as much dirt as possible, I'm sure there will be pics posted somewhere

The longer way home

Oh and i finally got the tiger rebuilt after it's little accident last fall, kinda like the black...

Looks like a killer trip!

P.S. If you're a professional dirtbag why aren't you riding a Harley?
