Anyway, I would like to ride, but can trailer if we get a late start. I have room on the trailer for 2 big bikes and a small bike, but the CRV will only tow one big bike. Do you have a rig that will tow? Probably not. I am guessing as a Brazilian you prize fashion over function...like a Miata.

Says the guy driving a mini-and-cute CRV (full-size SUVs just aren't cute enough are they?).

My forester doesn't have a tow package yet, so nope...

Hick you're confusing sexual orientation with fashion when you
bring Br and Miata into to the conversation.

The funny thing is you can totally sense the panic.

A shameless plug for Matt (Frog) and his moving/storage company.

I've referred several clients to them and have had positive feedback.
I came into the office today and his wife had sent this gift basket
and PR hat from Two Man Moving. SWEET!

Keep up the good work!

We used Frog's company for two moves before we even knew he was on AdvRider. Both were excellent experiences. His guys took a lot of the pain and suffering out of the PITA of moving a house...twice.

Hmmmm.....no shipment from KTM hutt.

I need end clips for the oil pump shafts, and the outer clutch cover gasket for a 530 so I can ride this weekend. I can make the gasket, but I'm gonna need those end clips. I think they're 6mm number 20 on this fiche, but there has got to be a place to get metric clips in SLC.

http://cyclehuttktm.com/FicheFinderNew/FicheFinder.aspx

Anybody coming out from the city for the weekend have any ideas?

See if you can order some from Full Throttle in Centerville, Utah. I will pick them up and bring them with me. 801.292.1492

LOL but at the same time bummer.

Looks like you guys had another amazing ride. Too bad I had to travel for work.

one last BIG weekend

Infidel, Warp9man and I were chatting the other day and decided we need one more big event before the snows set in. So, we are planning a season finale ride down at the Arizona Strip (not a gentleman's club, it's a huge chunk of BLM land south of St. George) October 23-27.

The plan is to take Warp9mans RV out south of St. George (to the dirt, where you pay no fees) and use it as "base" for 5 days of exploration. There is a huge bunch of land out there, varying from "super-single-track" to "I can almost get my mazda through here" so both small and big bikes could enjoy it. The thought is we could break off in some smaller groups each day according to bike size, interest, and skill level, go have fun, and still rally around together in the evenings for eating food and telling lies.

There are petryglyphs, old buildings, stark desert, piney mountains, gypsum mines, caves, and all sorts of neat stuff out there. For those interested, I will lead a day-trip up over Mount Trumbull and on over to my favorite part of the Grand Canyon......Toroweep point....there's no guard rail and no tourists with cameras standing in the way.

I used to live/work in this area and am excited to be going back. It's miles and miles of prime motorcycle enjoyment. Red cliffs, white washes, widlife, not many trucks on the road except for the occasional rancher, not much for touristy campsights, and lots of space.

Plus, we will be close to St. George so we could go into town to eat, get gas (or parts heaven forbid something breaks) and have "stuff" available. Those that wanted to camp could camp, those that wanted hotels room would be close to hotels. If some wanted to sneak off a day or two and do some fishing, there are multiple resivoirs close by.

For more info on the area we're headed to, click this link: http://www.blm.gov/az/st/en/fo/arizona_strip_field.html

Anyone want to join us?

WARNING

Toroweap is in the Grand Canyon National Park. Though you can ride all over the desert getting there on dirt bikes... to enter the park (last 5 miles to the rim of the canyon and overlook) you must have a street legal bike! I have been there when the Ranger let those of us with plated bikes in and turned the others away.

Just wanted to give you a heads up... just in case.

Good to know. I've been there at least 3 times and never seen a ranger! Saw the cabin, saw the pickup, but never saw anyone there.
