Nice!

Put a Seat Concepts pad and cover on my 690 and ordered a few goodies from Highway Dirt Bikes for it so I can get out and use it more often.


Also need to get with Harcus and get serious with the lighting...

greeting fellow Utards, I just moved to SLC valley from AZ a couple of months ago and picked up this little motard. Looking for a group to ride with until the rest of the season

Here's my CRF230M and I on top of Millcreek canyon few days ago





cheers,

Alex

Good that you escaped from that land of radicals & cholla!

Here is your assignment:

1. Find the town of Hanna on the map
2. Ride from here over Guardsmans Pass to Hanna for lunch
3. Better hurry, there is white up there already.

That will give you (2) 9400 ft passes in one day. Smile.

PS - The Hot roast beef special sandwich is always good. It goes good with a beer.

Welcome!

Looks like a great little route! So far I've been to Park City, both little/big cottonwood canyons (Alta looked like a postcard of Switzerland), millcreek, and Ogden via US-89. The roads and view up here are stunning! Just driving on Wasatch Blvd for the first time looking over the city I almost went off the side from staring at the view.

The downside is of course the 4-season weather. Can't ride 360 days out of the year like you can in AZ.

Yay another motard !

Saturday is plausible if the woman allows it, Sunday I'm free for sure.

Since every non-paved road in the valley seems to be locked or have a trespassing sign I've been finding my own trails in the city haha

That lady looks a bit skeptical of your route down the rail line....

Make sure you've got your seat softened for that Hanna ride, if you're on the KTM, the 2x4 seat gets pretty hard over that distance....don't know about the CRF......

I'm not cleared to ride yet but summa us olda folks are down the motard adventures.....

Took a ride to Five mile this morning. First a quick detour to see the Fairfield Stagecoach Inn. Rumor has it that Mark Twain might have rested here one night on the way to CA over the Pony Express Trail.



Five Mile looking South.



Looking North West



A trail leading West from the main Parking lot.



My trusty steed





Checking out the Droid Panorama tool.

Ended the ride at the new Smashburger on Fort Union. These are recommended!
