    I had a great time staring at your rear end last week on the WRT, hope you liked mine. :huh

    Wait a minute, I should word that differently.

    Nice hanging with you, as always, StG!

    Fantastic report and an inspiration to many.

    The man...

    Definitely see ya then!

    For sure! Will never get to see everything here in SW UT, much less the rest of the whole wide world. As for the little bike, it's my 1st bike & it sure didn't seem very little when I got it:lol3. Not sure why some seem to dis the little bikes, but I think anything on 2 wheels is fun!!!

    I believe it's the remains of a t-33 crash from the 1950's. Not too far from the road. I've seen pics of the tail section, but couldn't find it. Not sure if someone took it or it's still out there somewhere? The gps coordinates are printed in one of the popular 4x4 books.

    Thanks for the rr. I was out there this week. Spent three days in Moab. We did Lockhart Basin and then went into Canyonlands and did elephant hill. I don't blame you for not doing elephant hill by yourself. We made it with no problem but I was a little concerned about getting back up that hill. We did White Rim the 2nd day and the north portion of UTBDR on the 3rd day. Great place to ride.

    i'm envious!

    riding in a picturesque landscape and enjoying the solitude are good for the soul.

    Hey StG -- saw this before but got distracted and didn't have time to comment. Very funny! :lol3

    Mrs. RRR says "hi" to Mrs. StG. Shoes -- you go girlfriend -- gotta love it! :thumb

    Looking forward to seeing your new orange toy.

    Awesome stuff, StG! :) I see your WRR still holds up and you still ride awesome! :) I'm planing on doing UTBDR late Aug beginning of September on WRR. Doing my yearly Iron Butt ride next Saturday. :)

    PS I don't know if you remember me (one of 3 musketeers on WRR helping Reaper during last Monkey Rally :))

    Hey Cooligun, are you referring to the FM rally this weekend:D???


    You should definitely visit - it's like 6-8 degrees cooler up here. Although, I may be relocating to phoenix this year, so I really hope the riding down there is even way better.
