Hick - You wouldn't have enjoyed this ride. We did no field oil changes, removed no engines, did no case welding. Andre attempted to slow us down by faking a radiator cap issue but I found it & made him take us thru the Luge...



We rode clockwise coming out over these rock ramps. Wet but no green slimy moss for excitement...



We returned over some of this stuff...



...Brians trail.

Our camp...roughing it...



Kowboy believes in nothing but the best materials for his heatshields. I might pirate this idea. Looks like a best seller...



Kev n I got 264 miles in 3 days, Andre a bit less since he was slavin in the salt mine Friday.

Till next time...

^^^^^

Next time we should get pictures of the 10 foot vertical cliff ascent! preload the shocks before the wall, bounce into it without bouncing off, and suck it up over the lip!

Andre didn't do the 'suck it up' part and stood in a wheelie on the ledge like a trials rider for an uncomfortable second and i was glad to see him stick it rather than falling over backward down the cliff.

The things these machines are capable of astounds me.

Any way I could beg a GPX file off of you for that trip?

a few more pics

Coming up this ledge was cool for the first four people, but by the time Harcus was up the solid crust of mud on the surface completely gave way and his front tire went straight down when it was supposed to go up...



I thought this looked like a human head, no?



lotsa this:



Yep, looks like you should have hit it a little more to the left.



DCH's bike was losing a bit of water, and he didn't want to pee in the radiator, so find a puddle

There's still a bit of riding to do in the mountains. Take a look at this google earth file if you want all routes in NUT...

My bathroom is more complete, but I still wish I had scraped up some dough to go down with you all. Ah, well. Another time.

we'd hike into super cool places as boy scouts and make you sign in blood if you want the beta... signing in blood meant that you had to prick your finger with a pin and put your fingerprint on a nondisclosure contract stating that you won't reveal said awesomeness without the blessing of the givers.

Did H-man give the secret gpx handshake?!! Blood is required. we skinned harcus alive just a bit on his arm. You dont share that stuff once you're in the circle. this IS utah bro. We own you if you want the goods.

Tough deal... steaks may help.
