CDR to Banff, AB
Slab back to BR, LA



Best,
Andy
Fantastic! Just what the Tenere is all about.

"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles." - Jeff Cooper

I can see where you would feel that way.
Moab is just in a league of it's own.

I've always prefered mountain trail riding on smaller bore bikes.
Some Utards keep dragging me into the desert and I'm starting to like that too.
Well except the sections of whose word shall not be spoken.....

That wouldn't be...

Quote:
"The most common constituent of sand, in inland continental settings and non-tropical coastal settings, is silica (silicon dioxide, or SiO2), usually in the form of quartz, which, because of its chemical inertness and considerable hardness, is the most common mineral resistant to weathering.

The composition of sand is highly variable, depending on the local rock sources and conditions. The bright white sands found in tropical and subtropical coastal settings are eroded limestone and may contain coral and shell fragments in addition to other organic or organically derived fragmental material, suggesting sand formation depends on living organisms, too.[2] The gypsum sand dunes of the White Sands National Monument in New Mexico are famous for their bright, white color. Arkose is a sand or sandstone with considerable feldspar content, derived from the weathering and erosion of a (usually nearby) granitic rock outcrop. Some sands contain magnetite, chlorite, glauconite or gypsum. Sands rich in magnetite are dark to black in color, as are sands derived from volcanic basalts and obsidian. Chlorite-glauconite bearing sands are typically green in color, as are sands derived from basaltic (lava) with a high olivine content. Many sands, especially those found extensively in Southern Europe, have iron impurities within the quartz crystals of the sand, giving a deep yellow color. Sand deposits in some areas contain garnets and other resistant minerals, including some small gemstones."


Would it?

Did you burn ants with a magnifying glass as a kid?

That was just plain brutal.

Especially when they're on SAND!

When someone helps me pick up the bike they see the sticker and figure "new bike
new rider, give him a break".

If that doesn't work I play the age card.

Then I have my cleaning crew take care of the rest.

I don't think this will improve your sand riding butt maybe, see y'all in the canyon
