    I did not make it out this past weekend. After loading my trailer I looked down and happened to notice the wheel moving sideways. After a quick study, I found the bearings had gone bad and towing it across the continental divide would have been a bad idea. So, im rescheduled for this weekend. Friday to Sunday.
    I plan to try to ride everything in Moab.
    Its all so good. Id be happy to have someone to ride with.

    This weekend is looking much better. The trailer is fixed.
    Ill be leaving Friday and returning Sunday night.

    I would like to explore Lockhart basin if anyone is interested?
    Also looking to put some miles in South of White Wash. Maybe Tenmile canyon?

    I love that trail. What is the name of the trail that goes through the huge rock formation a bit south of white wash? Here is a photo?

    Fair warning to anyone considering this.. "a ride" in the desert with Silverboy typically involves:
    1) jb weld
    2) exploration of every real and perceived alternate route
    3) 5th gear pinned.. in the wrong direction
    4) gps is forbidden.. no matter how tired / lost / injured / sore / cold / out of gas you are
    5) returning at midnight (if lucky) with 200+ new miles on your odo

    Does the guy in the above photo look like he's having fun to you?

    Just sayin'

    :D

    I'm wary of any ride with Mr. Silverboy. I've seen his garage of destruction.

    but I'll be in the area Thursday - Monday or so, with another rider, not sure of the difficulty of trails we are up for, but I think Dead Cow could make the list... Definitely doing some of the "classics" on Moab 101.

    Playing it by ear.

    I'll drop you an email with my mobile number Silverboy...

    That is so true. Thump, what are you talking about? Hows your bike or should I say bikes running? Funny:rofl

    Rick. He did have an odd grin after surgery. It was from a different trip and 100miles away so It does not count.... Injuries suck.

    Hey, not true. I don't think this stuff up, I just get invited along. In hindsight it would seem I have an unusually mean group of friends.

    Low blow man.. low blow. I'm positive it's all factory defects.
