Moab

I was in Moab for my first time the weekend after Thanksgiving. I had broken my foot and arm three weeks before, so only rode Chicken Corners and Hurrah Pass on my own, but then rode White Rim Trail two-up on a 950 Adventure just b/c we weren't sure my foot and arm would hold up for that long a ride (~100 mi.). Both were excellent rides and not difficult though we had excellent conditions, wet firm sand and hardly any mud to speak of. There's riding of all levels in the area, and the scenery is beautiful!! There are even some dirt roads in Arches N.P. I highly recommend planning rides to be take advantage of the early morning and later afternoon light for photos. The red rocks just glow!

Here's a link to our rides and those of some others we hooked up with.

We stayed at the Red Stone Inn b/c nights were on the cool side, and since it was off season, it was only $50/night. The Moab Brewery gets a thumbs up for restaurants. There's a 4WD rally sometime in the spring. I understand from other riders, that it's a good time avoid Moab if you're on to wheels.

P.S. The White Rim Trail has some great scenic camp grounds with pit toilets. You'll need to make reservations to use them...I think through Canyon Lands N.P., but not sure.

Wow! Moab sounds great. I'd love to ride in Moab. I'm going to consider it, though I don't know if I can get it into my work schedule this year.

Happy Holidays!

I'll follow this thread (and the Moab in March thread) to see where things are going. I'll be needing a looong ride by then!

I'll be thrilled if a few gals from here joined us in Moab. It will be a good time with good people.

Keep me posted on any rally ride reports from your side of the world - all I can offer here is that if you come out my way, look me up.

We've got much to show off and the rand/dollar exchange is so in your favour.

I's feeling a bit left out down here, so show those pics....

LadyDraco, very nice pictures! Winter maybe cold, it may keep us from riding, but at the same time it can be very beautiful.

bmwgrrl, welcome. I hope to see more post from you in the future of some ride reports showing where your bike take you.

Extreme Velcro, thanks for the invitation to look you up if any of us come to your area. I'd love to see some pictures of where you are.

Hi Astir

It sure seems like it's going to be a long time before riding season is here again but that just make spring that much sweeter.

Awesome! Now that's a lady that doesn't let the snow keep her off the bike.

Brian, has she registered on ADV yet? If not encourage her to, we like having more women joining in. She's also now on my list of lady riders in the NW, I can't wait to meet her.
