    And then our final Pass, Orphir, and a rest break.

    As we got down from the mountains it looked like we had just missed the rain.

    Then we worked our way back up onto some ATV trails.

    And then this happened. They were really rough and rocky.

    The subframe mount broke again...and managed to shear off another bolt. So I had to limp to Monticello, UT where we stayed the night.

    Sorry about that. I had some really crappy internet so I typed all the html on my own and pasted it with my phone. I guess I misnamed the pictures. I will have them up tomorrow hopefully. We are in Eureka, NV on our way to Battle Mountain tomorrow. Seekingzero.com is my domain and website, no subscription to worry about.

    I can't remember why I was pointing but I stopped because there was a large metal pipe sticking out that I didn't want to hit and I had lost momentum too. I had to back down to where the photographer was to get started again.

    From Monticello, we treked the 100 miles to Moab to get our tires changed at Arrowhead.

    And ran into some problems with the route...this is at mileage 45.13 on the maps. The road no longer exists. We took the paved way around and met the trail again at 50.13.

    The Aspen trees were thick as we climbed our last mountain before Moab.

    Moab at last, and a great little burger stand.

    After eating we got to Arrowhead Motorsports so that Fred could change our tires. Fred isn't the friendliest person but was very helpful. After changing our tires, which he made look ridiculously easy, he helped me weld up my rack so that we could continue on.

    We put Dunlop D606's on the bikes, front and rear. When we started we went with a 606 rear and Pirelli MT21 front. After riding on the 606 front, I can say that the MT21 has a harder compound and lasts longer. The 606 is the much better off-road front and handles better in the dirt and gravel. My .02.

    From here we stayed in Moab and rode the White Rim Trail the next day.

    In Eureka at mileage 214.63, you will want to head north on US50 until mileage 228.78. The trail through has been fenced off for a mine about 2 miles in.

    After a restful sleep at the Rustic Inn in Moab, we headed out for the journey around the White Rim Trail 30 miles out. It is suppose to take all day and them some if you go the speed limit of 15mph...but we accomplished it in about 6 hours. It was nice to ride without all the bags and gear.

    The first hour or so we had some big "puddles" to go through. This one was slick.

    The rain followed us along our trip next to the Colorado River keeping it cool and overcast the whole day.

    An excellent day with no crashes and the last good day we have had...

    Thanks for sharing your ride and the great photos. It would've been easy for you NOT to tell the truth about your wreck with the truck. Props.

    Man, what an awesome report. Will be going out to do more of the trail sometime end of August. I did from the start to Fort Smith last year and had a blast. Thanks for all the pics. It helps to see what is coming up.

    This thread gets a five star in my opinion. :deal

    Fantastic shots of the landscape mixed with some humor (pissing in the canyon) and great action shots of the mighty DR in action, brilliant work guys. :clap

    And you have to love the "Fred's" of this world in remote locations, grumpy as hell but they will always help you in the end. :evil

    10 out 10 on effort & ride reporting.

    Thanks for sharing! This is a fantastic read on an otherwise boring Sunday. I will wait impatiently for the next installment.:1drink

    Wow, Good to see you guys hanging in there. Suzy and I met yall just west of Telluride. We were on the ktm dirtbikes, from Bama and Deal's Gap.

    Yalls DR's and hard luggage were beginning to show the wear and tear of the trip. What fun huh? You guys have the right attitude for sure. Glad I finally had the time to check out your report,,good job.

    My offer to haul a your bikes back east is still good. I"m soloing the T1 of Idaho in a week or so, then trail riding around Idaho for a while. Will be headed home around Sept. 1st, probably back thru Colorado.
    Good luck and enjoy your adventure!

    Your wait is over. Here is the rest of Utah. I am working on Nevada now up to Battle Mountain where we are currently staying.

    After our day of "rest" we left the Rustic Inn and hit the trail up to Salina, UT.

    <a href="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/IMG_5336.jpg"><img src="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/IMG_5336.jpg" alt="" title="IMG_5336" width="800" height="600" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-2031" /></a>

    <a href="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/IMG_5338.jpg"><img src="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/IMG_5338.jpg" alt="" title="IMG_5338" width="800" height="600" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-2031" /></a>

    After getting gas and food, the trail took us up what had to be a 40 degree atv incline next to I-70 to follow this old deserted road.
    <a href="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/IMG_5339.jpg"><img src="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/IMG_5339.jpg" alt="" title="IMG_5339" width="800" height="600" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-2031" /></a>

    Then to the entrance of Black Dragon Canyon and the start of my bad day...

    <a href="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/IMG_5343.jpg"><img src="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/IMG_5343.jpg" alt="" title="IMG_5343" width="800" height="600" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-2031" /></a>

    First I couldn't get up this rocky incline. Got pissed at Chris for not helping me. That didn't help anything.

    And then I had my first spill.

    <a href="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Chris-UT2-NV3-229.jpg"><img src="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Chris-UT2-NV3-229.jpg" alt="" title="Chris UT2-NV3 229" width="800" height="533" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-2134" /></a>

    It was upsetting.

    <a href="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Chris-UT2-NV3-231.jpg"><img src="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Chris-UT2-NV3-231.jpg" alt="" title="Chris UT2-NV3 231" width="800" height="533" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-2134" /></a>
    <a href="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Chris-UT2-NV3-230.jpg"><img src="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Chris-UT2-NV3-230.jpg" alt="" title="Chris UT2-NV3 230" width="800" height="533" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-2134" /></a>

    And then again.

    <a href="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Chris-UT2-NV3-234.jpg"><img src="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Chris-UT2-NV3-234.jpg" alt="" title="Chris UT2-NV3 234" width="800" height="533" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-2134" /></a>

    And then again here. This one was bad. Too fast in the sand and I crushed my right, injured, leg under my side box. I think the boot saved it from breaking.

    <a href="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Chris-UT2-NV3-235.jpg"><img src="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Chris-UT2-NV3-235.jpg" alt="" title="Chris UT2-NV3 235" width="800" height="533" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-2134" /></a>

    And again.

    <a href="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Chris-UT2-NV3-240.jpg"><img src="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Chris-UT2-NV3-240.jpg" alt="" title="Chris UT2-NV3 240" width="800" height="533" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-2134" /></a>

    My crash total was somewhere around 7 or 8. Needless to say I was worn out after the first crash. I was ready to get on I-70 and head home. But I stayed with it.

    We got out of the canyon finally and spent the rest of the time winding our way through an area with volcanic black rock all over.

    <a href="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Chris-UT2-NV3-246.jpg"><img src="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Chris-UT2-NV3-246.jpg" alt="" title="Chris UT2-NV3 246" width="800" height="533" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-2134" /></a>

    Then we wove around and under I-70 to Salina, UT for the night.

    <a href="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Chris-UT2-NV3-251.jpg"><img src="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Chris-UT2-NV3-251.jpg" alt="" title="Chris UT2-NV3 251" width="800" height="533" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-2134" /></a>

    And through two rock tunnels.

    <a href="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/IMG_5354.jpg"><img src="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/IMG_5354.jpg" alt="" title="IMG_5354" width="800" height="600" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-2031" /></a>

    The next day from Salina, UT to Baker, NV was awful. Just suffering through the dust until Oregon.

    We followed this canal to some ATV trails.

    Here was my fix for yesterdays spill.

    <a href="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/IMG_5363.jpg"><img src="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/IMG_5363.jpg" alt="" title="IMG_5363" width="800" height="600" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-2031" /></a>

    This was the 30-35 degree rocky downhill we had to take. Now I love near death experiences as much as the next adventure rider but not so many so close together...

    <a href="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/IMG_5373.jpg"><img src="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/IMG_5373.jpg" alt="" title="IMG_5373" width="800" height="600" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-2031" /></a>

    No amount of engine deceleration and/or braking will slow you through this slick, steep corner. I took this at about 30 mph.

    <a href="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/IMG_5375.jpg"><img src="http://seekingzero.com/reise/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/IMG_5375.jpg" alt="" title="IMG_5375" width="800" height="600" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-2031" /></a>

    After almost dying, it was on to the straight and flat for a while.

    Finally we got a break from the unexciting to play around on the dry lakebed of Sevier Lake.
