Cherry creek was awesome. You can't ride any on the high stuff but the low land was tacky.

This didn't suck. I'd have tagged along w/ Frog but I've been farming and needed to take it easy...

I saw 3 guys on KTM Advr's and one had an ADV sticker... Who was it?



spring back there somewhere


cool moaby like rocks


3 beautiful wild horses nearly ran me off the road. crappy pic, but I was too busy evading them to get the glint in their eye. Do they bite?

Moab area?

Heading down to Moab from Banff Canada on the 18th, Doing White Rim trail what are some other awesome rides in the area for this time of year? Did Kane creek and horrah Pass last year on a Triumph 800XC - I found Kane creek hard at one spot. White rim and Schafer were spectacular. Any other suggestions for bikes that size?

Onion Creek. Not very challenging, but a great, unique ride.

Check out the UTBDR. It is big bike friendly. You can go from Mexican Hat to Moab in 2 days & see some great scenery. The GPX routes are here...

One way to find out. Hold your little carrot in front of them and let us know how it turns out.

Trying to get a taller van, so we are selling our E350 Super Duty, cheap. If anyone is looking for a moto hauler. $3k obo.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=960734

Well, trying is the wrong word. I am buying one either way, but this should go because it's one too many vans in the driveway. People will talk.

Staying on topic, if there is one, we took our daughter and a neighbor girl up to the B yesterday and they both had fun riding the KLX110. My wife did too. I just rode wheelies and did backflips all day. Because red bull gives you wings. It's as loose and rocky as ever up there, so it's a great place to practice sliding down hills with both brakes locked almost all the time. Great practice for, ah, moab? Didn't dump it, so that's new. Helene crashed the KLX trying to hill climb like it was a real dirt bike.

From the description its got two heli-coiled spark plug holes, so no.
