Moab, UT - Sgt Marty to the Phone

I'll let Sgt Marty tell the story of Poison Spider, a Crack, and some Factory Jeeps.



What is this that I spy with my little eye?



These guys were awesome, head guy has a KTM 500.

Any of you see the Jeep rolling around this weekend in Moab, UT get a picture and post it here and at the RMAR Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rocky...11463808967090

I hope Marty made it back.....he left on Saturday to beat the weather and he seemed a little sore.

The Jeep professional photographer they had took a ton of pictures of us loading the KTM up. The bike & Marty just needed to take a little rest was all. This was suppose to be an easy day, thank God I didn't do the planning.

Some didn't like the idea to slab it to the dome plateau which was the original plan so this route was one of many alternate routes discussed and 3 of us had not done it before and the other two had on MTB's but you know how that is much different plus they had done it in the other direction. We were going South to North. So we all assumed it would be a nice loop close to town. To be fair we all agreed to the route. Turned out to be an EPIC adventure and although the XR650R was fun I would of much rather been on the GasGas for this loop.

I was amazed at how far in it took to get to the Golden Crack, had to go by lots of DD on the maps to get there.

The rest of us used the rock pile to the left of pwrtrippins XR650R picture. That group of Jeep's were nice, they said they would wait around till we all crossed which was very nice to offer. The Factory Jeeps were behind us at that point and we watched them for a bit then we moved on.

I'll get the GPX tracks up soon, I got the shorter Steelbender loop video processing that we did on Saturday.

Two weeks ago my sonand I did in north to south. He had ball on the WR 450. Uop ahead scouting, back to dad, telling me where to go. Helping me up, and then picking the bike up. I worked my a$$ of on the DR 650.Next day I could barely move, sore shoulders, arms, legs, knees, back and pride! Summer project, get the old 76 TL 250 out of the barn and get it going!

It's a good one! We rode it for the first time a few weeks ago.

That obstacle at the beginning of the video, it's easier to just ride down the left side of it than do the bypass (video). I think it's called the Fall. Our group of 3 got to the top of it, looked down, and said "hell no". Our fearless leader took the bypass and, ah, had a rough time.... The remaining two looked to the left and thought, "I think that's doable" and rolled down. Our fearless leader was slightly irritated.

It's a trail I'd do again.

Nice vid! Steel Bender is a great trail. We rode it south to north having to ride up the crux. Here's a clip of the crux going the other way, kinda fun. My Moab skillz were sore lacking.

Yep did it South to North last year. Two guys were on XR650L's and didn't even drop the bikes. Nice video RideFreak but you have much more skills then I do...I play it safe if there is a cutoff I do it.
