Sorry about the trail being a bit more tore up right around the large rock in the shale section you have to maneuver around. I was through there on my tiger 800xc and hooked up on that rock and dropped the bike. Thankfully fano and Steve were there to help me keep the big cat from sliding down the mountain.

If I were to buy a big KTM, it would be a 950. I love my carbs. I have settled on building a dr650. For now....

That has to be a tight squeeze with the 800! Good thing you did not drop it down that hill, long way down........

Hey!! Anyone want to help me out??

I Just moved to Ogden Utah, from Los Angeles and finally got a bike. Only problem is I am pretty new to riding and literally know 0 people in this state...

Anyone willing to ride with me and show me the area??

I got a Qlink XP 200 to hold me over till I can afford a better bike.

PM me so we can get something going!!

what store?

Any idea if there's a local shop that carries Arai helmets? I need a visor!

by the way... I'm riding out a week from tomorrow to go out to Lee Vining CA first night, then chase through the Sequioa's etc down through the Sierra's to Lake Isabella second night, then to the coast to San Diego. Come along if you can handle 400 mile days!

Harrison has Arai - 90th south and just west of I-15 (BMW/Triumph dealer)

I thought I saw some at Wrights as well but it was a while ago - 3474 S State St - I'd call on that one to make sure. 801-266-2050

That video exceeds my big bike allowable "pucker factor." You're a braver man than I.

Wife got sick, so we are probably not riding now.

I will grab an ebay seat, good idea!

And that's why I sold my Tiger and bought a DR. Too shiny, very heavy.
