Utahn Strommers - East Canyon to Lost Creek...

I'm the old guy in red.... Great ride, saw a rattlesnake, two deer and a golden eagle! And got attacked by sand monsters, evidenced in one of the photos... :-)

If a little dust on the saddle bag is the work of the Sand Monster
you had better not go on any rides with Frog, Roostre, Hick etc.

Nicely farkled Stroms.

Thanks for the advice and the compliments - both appreciated. I'm not a great off-road rider, only fair, so I'll stay away from extreme-adventure rides, which I assume the above-mentioned trio like!

Pavement and gravel/hard pack are my speed - soft sand, ugh - neither my tires nor my skill levels are up to that!

There have been several rides without the off road drama so far this year.
Keep hanging out for the next one. I prefer the smaller bores off road.
I keep the Strom so the BMW riders can brag about beating something.
Oh wait, maybe it was the KTM guys.

Pack it in a box. Tape it up. Write kitchen on it and they will never know whats in it. It will be listed as pbo (packed by owner) on the inventory.

I'll probably do that. I'm just concerned that it will fry in the truck.

I do have an amazing amount of friends offering to help me with my amarone and old vine zinfandels, though

Put it in the trunk of your car, fill it with ice and put it on the trailer.

Better yet, put it next to the Buell and leave the key on. The fan will
keep it happy.

Even better yet throw a going away party!!!!
