UtBDR

The Walrus n I have a vision to ride the UtBDR starting next Tuesday.

The link...http://www.backcountrydiscoveryroutes.com/UTBDR

Since we are "purists" the plan is to ride it as it is planned. We will ride to the Az border on Tuesday - unavoidable - camp over a nite & proceed to trek northward.

I have ridden pieces of the route but not all & I see this as a good chance to fill in some gaps in my bucket list.

Should be about 5 days back, who knows. I am taking the trusty 990. Is due for some more abuse....and so am I.



The biggest issue may be the fires down south...

http://www.utahfireinfo.gov/

After last years fire issues on a ride in Idaho I am beginning to think it may be of concern. Time will tell.

There is still time to come along with us. Get your ticket now ! You really don't want to work next week anyway, do you?

Pretty sure thats Yogoi in front. Looks like he's riding fast but far from out of control. The rear end kick out is every riders nightmare. Fast rode then all of a sudden you are looking at the rear wheel next to you.

I've always had a trick to avoid looking like such a novice and having my arse kick out all over. you just twist your right hand really far forward. Most these guys on this forum don't quite get it...

Mad respect / sick riding... Forwarded the vid to a good buddy as soon as I saw it. Single track in Logan looks awesome!

Did a quick 80 miles of dirt road power sliding on the se this morning. Was home by 7:30am. A little chilly but nobody was around. :)


Then had my pit crew wash my bike. Yes that's how I roll.... I wish, this was a first.

looking for a riding partner

I looking for a partner to do a 5 day ride leaving the 5 of July. Idaho or Montana or where ever the roads leads.

I am on a 950 SE and go light. I like as much dirt as I can get. Camping out. Sleeping in the dirt.
