How about a fuel injected, 4 stroke, 690 snomo?
RR, I drove right past you and your camp Saturday morning ( yes I waved) in a silver Toyota Taco. It was a great weekend to be in the mountains. I didn't get to ride, we were hiking and doing some stream and pond surveys for the FS.
Are you a hydrologist?
Oh sweet! Yeh I remember. At that spot I literally only saw 1 jeep, a side by side, and your Taco. That was it for traffic. I thought for sure it would be super busy but nope. I met a few other riders out on the trail. They told me about Motoutah. It really was a great day for me, I did most of the single track in that area including all of the center trail 009.
here are some pics.
The screen shot I took to guide myself.
Sweet drop tank!!!!! It must have droppen in the winter bc there was almost no damage. Would love to haul it out and make a flats car...
Some singletrack stoke
I had a great time! I love primitive camping and the cool temps up there. Was really nice to get out of SLC.
Whole lotta rain causing some interesting conditions down in Grand Staircase FYI
...glad to be off the bike. did 1500 miles over 3 days of the twistiest roads in CA! I jumped on hwy 1 and fell into a pack of bullet bikers that taught me the joy of lane splitting We really need that privilege in UT. Call the governator!
The Herbernator just doesn't have that kind of pull... it would be awesome. I love riding in So Cal. Nothing like crossing the Bay Bridge splitting at 65 mph as you watch bikes blur by in the adjacent lanes like you are standing still.
No. We were doing a project to check for and count borrial toads, frogs, salamandars. Pretty easy; find the location, fill out the paperwork, take pictures and record gps. Also checking if there was water or not. There are so many in the area
not all can be checked regularly.
Great pics RR!
What was your route? I am wondering how much of that I've been on before, the twisted along highway 1 are almost good enough to be worth living in CA.
I did HWY 36 out of Fortuna towards Redbluff last year. Awesome, awesome, twisties. The day ended 850 miles later with a case of monkey butt to beat all. If you missed it go back, now. (the twisties... no my red ass...)
Isn't that also known as KTM Keister?
the Corbin Chaffe, Beemer Backside, etc... Still - go ride 36!!
Headed out to ride the Tour of Idaho on Saturday. I'm going to try to keep a regular blog going on my website, www.fishwrites.com
Sounds hella fun. Will def keep my eye on the blog!
Heading out this afternoon for Glacier NP via Hwy 93 - Missoula, then back through jellystone. No dirt this trip but as much 2 lane as we can handle.
Going to head out of the valley early AM and head up....to....well, that's TBD.
Planning to go out for some easy dual sport stuff and be back in the valley around noonish or so.
Maybe Strawberry Res by way of Hobble Creek, or up over Guardsman's Pass then into Soapstone Basin area. If anyone is interested let me know. Open to other ideas.
Right now it's a KLR and a Katoom.
Beat the heat and get up into the trees
Man is that ever accurate! Omg....did about 150 miles today up into the high uintas and I would have told state secrets to get off that seat! . I'm going to nail a 2x4 to the seat to soften it up a little....
I'd love to post up some pictures, but the option to post attachments is turned off for some reason.
You old folks are always complaining about seats. Could it be the hemorrhoids?
