My brother flew in last night from Minnesota, arriving in SLC at midnight. Twelve hours later he's riding the XR600R that we just bought together so he has something to ride when he comes to Utah.

25 years of experience on street bikes, 3rd day on a dirt bike.


The first 30 minutes of riding today ended up in a painful chest crunching crash, but 800mg of Ibuprofen and 1 gram of Tylenol later, he was feeling better.


When your 6'6" tall, the XR600R feels small and nimble.


Hand smashing good times.


Only in Utah. Wake up to snowfall, drive 3.5 hours south, then ride great single track and double track in the sun.

Sounds good. I will meet you guys out there. Are you trailering or slabbing it? I am going to leave SLC a little earlier than 9. Probably hit the slab around 7:30.

Yep, I ride an XR650R, but Frog loves his big KTM 950 Super Enduro in like terrain... It's like the little, Little Sahara... mostly sand dunes with mountainous trails.

You in? Gonna be nice!

Breakfast at 7am at the Moab Diner. Then down Potash and to the White Rim.





Then down Gemini Bridges to squeek in some more dirt.


Cup of coffee, then off to the Practice Loop and Slick Rock.






Fun day.
