    The Heideneau are brutal in the sand.
    Great on the ice, rock, hard pack and the slab.

    The KTM is always out ahead!!! Lol

    The KLX400 is getting good fuel milage.

    The KLX250 is louder than the 400 and 650.

    The KLR650 is back for a second time!!!

    No clear winner yet!!

    Looks like a lot of technical riding. You would need a pretty light and gutsy bike (along with some skills that few possess) to do a lot of it.

    Some of us old guys do not mend as easy anymore so i think I would be electing some easier routes.

    Hey guys,

    From the pictures it looks like we're going to need a long hard winter just to get the smiles off your faces:D. Enjoy, I would love to hear all about it 1st hand when you get back.

    We started out today with a stop at the Poison Spider and 2whlrider just had to see what Lappeman had experienced the day before...

    Then we were off to the Arches National Park to do the tourist thing.... the balancing rock.

    Hello everyone!

    Chris and I are planning a ride to St.John, NFLD in the spring/ summer of next year. What I'm asking from you guys is a list of things I should really do to the bike/ mods before I do the trip. So far, I've got the doo and rotor bolt replacement, valves and shims. Any and all input shall be very appreciated!
