Buells are just too easy.

I will admit they are slightly harder to pass than their bastard cruiser soul mates.
Looks like you will have to hurry to get your Buell, Pluric. Did you see this?

I remember making it past the turn off to chicken corners, but I never saw this part of the trail.

Hum. The skid plate is still on in this photo. Must have lost it a bit further down the trail. For sure this is where the valve cover got cracked

Definitely didn't try that section, I would have remembered that.

And had to get some help in spots.

This looks like the section I was approaching from the south when I turned around.
Did you all make it all the way to Hwy 211 via Lockhart Basin?

I can't believe you guys were riding that stuff on a 12GS!

Great Salt Lake loop?

I want to ride around the lake and was wondering if it is possible. Is there a route that is not blocked with gates and no tresspassing signs?

Thanks

I posted a link to it a few posts back. If by the time I get home you still haven't found, I'll post the link to the GPX file again.

In short, Pony express trail on the south side up to Wendover, then over the north side of the lake and down I-15 back home.

Search the KLR 650 forums for Mknight's loop around the lake on mostly dirt. He has a good RR from his loop.

I'm working on a Saturn/Buell purchase combination.

I'm still kicking myself for missing out on the Canondale bike.

Roostre and me, we're collectors, that's what we are. Visionaries! Anybody can go off into the desert knowing that there's a store that sells parts every couple of miles. Roostre and me will have to make our parts out of angle iron and dried dung. Pioneers, I tell you, we're the REAL adventurers.

That's one way to look at it. Or you could see it as the rest of us do,
WTF were you thinking???

That had to be the Mother Of All

(That is a brain fart for you blonds and Buell owners)

Yea, we made it out to Hwy 211. Camped at the base of the Bridger Jocks and climbed at Indian Creek. Probably the last time the 1200 will see fun that serious. My 650 now has cafe racer style handlebars and the blinkers are only held on by a thin wire or two. So are we skiing together this season or what?
