Great stuff Joel!!! I look forward to getting to Moab one of these days. Thanks for posting all the pics and words.

Do you have a PYYPP sticker on the KTM?

Well shoot, I'm in for next year too. Pretty epic scenery there guys. The question is: Big bike? Little bike? For those who went, what'd'ya think?

Less Talkin' More Rockin' video probs continue to date. I have edited parts that my computer won't render. Don't want you guys to think I forgot about ya.

Looking forward to riding with all y'all sooner than later. I'm stranded in AZ after doing 118mph out here and breaking a crank shaft pin on my truck.

wow, finally we will see the grand canyon north rim vids.....:

ram, bike size? hard to say. a small bike for sure will be more fun and able to see more places. if camping and sightseeing is your gig, the big bike for sure.

if i go next year, i will bring the 640 and a smaller bike.

hope your truck is fixed now.

Actually, that was some years ago on my XR650R.
I was plenty toasted at the top

Wasn't on this trip but...
I've traveled Utah lots on both big and small bike. Plenty of spectacular riding either way. Small bike is great if doing day rides from a base camp, but big bike will still get you to most of the hot spots and all the good stuff in between. I think I actually had more fun doing WRT on the 950 than on a thumper

thanks rrr, my photography sucks but i have to shoot over 1k and still won't get 100 good ones; been using 2 cameras, the pentax, but then my canon g10 developed a bad spot on the lens if people noticed.


this was the highlight of the 2nd day....the switchbacks



not sure what's in the sky, jetstream?



the view of where we came from












good job bill for making the ride all the way without a right foot peg



a few more turns and we're on top and level ground again



on our way back to town





next will be day 3
