    When: July 18-21, 2013

    This is an Unorganized Self Supported ADV oriented event.

    Last year was a ton of fun, we attracted riders from all over the country and we look forward to doing it again this year.

    I will post street routes and dirt routes for all to enjoy. Last year we all saw Bryce Canyon, Zion, Lake Powell, Brian Head, Duck Creek, Jacobs Lake and all the surrounding areas. Lots of Dirt! Enjoy daily rides from 10 miles to 400 miles.

    Temperatures will be perfect at the higher elevations.

    Please check out: www.zionponderosa.com for campsite details.
    If you plan on joining us, please make a reservation asap!!!! Dry Camping will be at the same wooded camp area as last years spring event.

    Tell them that you are with the "Flying Monkey Adventure Riders" so they place you near the fun!

    $10.50 per night dry camping is available through Zion Ponderosa and it includes hot showers, two pools, and two hot tubs!

    RV Sites and Cabins are also available. Check their website for pricing!

    Meals: http://www.zionponderosa.com/dining-A.html

    Sweet - I'm so in. Expect to be unemployed that month, so should totally be able to swing it. Promise not to break anything this time! (Although maybe I'll bring some of the percocet they gave me last time just in case...)

    Very Big Bike friendly! Most long routes are good for 650cc to 1200cc bikes. Long dirt roads and some highway sections on most rides. Lots of KLR650's, 990's and GS/GSA's. I rode my GS last year.

    Right on! I'd be on the GSA as I can't justify the fuel cost to tow the WR out, so this would be perfect. I might bring a rear dirt tire and mount it when I get there so as not to shag a good knobby on the way there on the long drone from Kalifornistan...

    That is a good idea! I rode with the Tourance EXP's last year and will use the Heidenau k60's this year. The EXP's worked well enough but I had to focus on every turn in the dirt. I just spent some time in Death Valley with the K60's and had much better traction in the turns in the dirt. They are also a decent road tire too. I rode out and back from Temecula and have very little wear.

    We will be starting pre-rides in April for anyone that is going to be in the area and wants to do some exploring. Post to everyone in the thread and we will coordinate the ride!
    Thanks,

    Nope, ive been after him to get one so he can do his own shtuff but meh w/e, his name is Mark. another friend of mine will prob go unless shes out on a fire somewhere. and Dad might try talking Mother into going. So its looking tentatively like it'll be me + 3, but we'll only need two tent spots :evil

    Had a great time last year. Not sure if we can make July this year, but we'll be rolling through the area sometime in May - headed for Moab.
