I took 3 32gig sd cards for the Go pro and filled only 2 of them. I had 3 2 gig sd cards for my point and shoot.

Great report----this trip on the bucket list for sure

Question----you both had the Montana 650 GPS. How did you like them? And what didnt you like?

Thanks again for the time to put this great ride report together.

Dale's done a fantastic job writing about this adventure. I have to say "Great job"!!!!
I'm just a user of the Montana where as Dale is the “master”. Honestly I feel like a tourist when I do these multi-day rides with Dale. He literally spends 100's of hours pouring over ever detail of these trips so when we're on the bikes it's soooo easy to follow our designated route. I just follow the purple line on the display.

I like the fact that the 650 has such a variety of features with a multitude of ways to set up how and what info is displayed. This may also one of the things that I dislike about the 650 as well. There are way more features than I could ever use and it takes some time to learn how to use even the basics. The display is large and easy to see. It's easy to use the controls with gloves on.
My previous GPS was a 550 and I like the 650 much better.

Lockhart Basin Road

Can Lockhart Basin Road be done as an out and back ride from Moab? I know you guys came down the road from the La Salle Mtns. to Moab - but I'm wondering about if it could be done in a day ride from Moab? Thanks

You could easily do the entire Lockhart Road to Canyonlands and back to Moab (maybe even find a loop so as not to back track?) in a day ride. We've actually already talked about trailering back to Moab to stay for a few days and do daily loops.

It's a little over 60 trail miles from Needles outpost to Moab, which equates to about 3 hours moving time based on our avg speed of 22 mph thru lockhart. So agree with Tom, easily done as a day loop from moab.

The Montana is my 6th or 7th GPS that I've owned, and the best so far. I really like this unit for our type of riding. Quick off the top of my head list of likes/dislikes:

likes:
  • screen readability in different light conditions
  • ability to handle lots of high resolution tracks, up to 10K track points
  • Customizable home screens and shortcuts
  • Customizable smart profiles tailored to activity (off-road, on-road, hunting, etc)
  • share tracks, waypoints, and routes wirelessly with another Montana (or ANT+ equipped devices). Tom and I have used this a bit out while riding, no computer required.
  • dashboards and data fields. You may have noticed from the ride pics a field called Grade on my 4 field off-road dashboard. You can have different dashboard stored with each profile based on activity
  • support for Tempe wireless temperature sensor, so you can see how bloody hot or cold it is while riding
  • ability to turn off route calculation behavior
  • AMPS GPS mount, inexpensive and works really well with the Montana

dislikes:
  • software stability, when it was initially released in June 2011 (v2.20 original firmware) it was very unstable, but with dozens of Garmin firmware updates since purchase, most of the issues have been sorted. Now at firmware v4.6, you can do the math.
  • route functionality is not as well supported as with Zumo or Nuvi branded models
  • missing track manager feature to show or hide ALL tracks
  • missing multiple trip odometers

Great Ride----with a good riding partner

Just read the whole thing from start to finish in one sitting------really enjoyed it.

It was obvious to me that you guys were in tune with each others riding.
Sometimes hard to find a good riding partner.

So nice to see some old places I've been and some new ones. Really nice to follow along with the gps file and I snagged a few interesting waypoints for future use

Glad you made it with no mechanicals on 2 bikes that are prone to fuel pump problems. It's just not these bikes------so many bikes with fuel pump issues--------such a simple thing.

Thanks a million

If your bike weighs more than 400lbs. You might not make it.

Dale's gallbladder is history. No flush, just removed!
Next multi-day ride discussed is the new CoBDR. It looks like that may be the in the summer of 2014. 2013 will be more short rides around the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Or, trailer back to Moab to stay there for a few days and do several shorter day loops. The Moab area has some absolutely awesome scenery.
