    That may work. I'm planning on spending some time down near chimney rock around then.

    TW200 is a great little bike. There's an '06 on Western Slope CL with only 700 miles. Guy bought it for kids & they don't ride. I think his price is $2300 or so...

    More info: did you ride the bikes down? Where'd you stay, camp or hotel it? I drove through Moab last Monday on my way back from Arizona, weather was chilly, especially at night but the daytime temps looked great for riding. How did Zebbidog like it......

    I was down there last Thursday through Sunday as well. Conditions were close to perfect.

    Here are a few teaser pics.

    Your's truly enjoying life:

    General route was south from Price, through Buckhorn Wash, Black Dragon Wash, Green River, South on Airport Road through Robbers Roost area to Hans Flat Ranger Station, down Flint Trail switchbacks (we were the first people down it this year....covered in at least a foot of snow), south to Sunset Pass, west to North Hatch Canyon road to the crossing of the Dirty Devil River (turned back due to too much water flow), backtrack, then south to Hite and Lake Powell.

    We then went south on Highway 95 to the Blue Notch Canyon turnoff and road down to the shores of Lake Powell intending to make a loop up and out of Red Canyon.....turned back after we lost a camera. Backtracked up the highway, over the south tip of the Henry Mountains for the night. Next day north to Hanksville, then Caineville,then north on the west side of Factory Butte (awesome route), to the Muddy River, past Temple Mountain, west on Behind the Reef Route, north along Red Canyon all the way to Eagle Canyon and camp for the night, and then home the next day along the west side of the Swell, and back to Price.

    I'm heading to White Wash next week for 3 days of riding the real dirt bikes, but this was really an awesome trip and the weather luckily cooperated for us.

    This is a very nice route, Mike. Well suited to the big bikes. Too bad the rivers were high but it is that time of year.

    Did you trailer the bikes to Price?

    Well done! :D

    Hey Fano, so what bike is your favorite bike nowadays? You ride the Tiger much anymore? I need another dirt bike to do Moab on someday... bucket list sort of thing. Work just never seems to allow for enough time for me to get there.

    I am going to interview for a position in SLC soon though, so who knows what's in the cards for the future. :deal

    Ha ha , I haven't been on a Tiger for a while. I ride my 450 dirt bike most of the time but I have hard time parting with the Tiger though. Maybe some day I'll get back on it.
    Good luck on your job interview, riding around here is pretty good. :wink:

    Cherry Creek is pretty much free of snow except the higher elevations of north side

    Agreed...loved the route and there is so much more that warrants exploration in that area, particularly on the west side of the river. I enjoyed it significantly more than White Rim just due to the remoteness and lack of people. Exploring further north into Millard Canyon and many of the other spurs....one could spend days with the only limitation being fuel range and water.

    We had no great expectations of getting through the Dirty Devil. This is high-flow time, but we just started west on North Hatch Canyon road and it was so awesome we figured what was the worst thing....we'd have to turn around and ride it back.

    Yes, we wussed out and trailered the bikes to Price. We just about got blown off the highway (Highway 10) last Sunday on the return route so were grateful for the truck and climate controlled comfort for what would have otherwise been an ugly ride home over Soldier Summit and the I-15 mess.
