    Time, $$ and getting my bike back together will probably not allow but I'd love to get down there, see some new country, meet some new people and tell stories about a great new Moto minded B&B.:lol3

    Hey quick questions....I'm guessing the old road will be open to traffic and that's the 10 mile run? Runs will be Fri and Sat? Anything on Sun or pretty much pack and bail?

    I'm not sure what the old road is or the 10 mile run.....

    Yes most people pack up for the run back home on Sunday.

    Thought I saw something about a run of 10 miles and assumed it was the old road....the one that is closed to private vehicles most of the year.....the one that is for the most part one lane with bicycles and propane busses only. Sunday pack and bail works....just looking to get my travel times worth....

    That sounds like Zion Canyon Scenic Drive , the one and only road in the valley. Don't count on being able to ride it.

    2016 Shuttle Season
    The Zion Canyon Scenic Drive is accessible by shuttle bus only from March 12 through the end of October and on weekends in November.

    Yep that's it...had heard of it through other places and heard of vague dates allowing limited vehicle access..oh well would have been a plus but not a game changer..........Ok another question...coming from Flag which is the quicker route...89 or Alt 89?

    I've been over both roads many times. I tend to take the route through Jacob Lake mostly because it has less traffic and the lodge at Jacob Lake has the best homemade cookies I've ever tasted. The down side is you can get stuck behind some slower traffic over the mountains through Jacob Lake. I think that one is 89A.

    The other route you go through Page which is good if you want fast food restaurant and gas options. Tends to have a bit more traffic but you get to go over the bridge and see Lake Powell which is cool.

    Ok, I'm gonna be there. Do I need one of those badassed KLRs for this event? All I have is a shitty 990 with a milk crate and ammo cans strapped on using bungees and duct tape.

    Wow, a 990 that uses duct tape and bungees? Most of the time they use old inner tubes and wads of baling wire found on the side of the road. Since you made the upgrades I'm sure the KLR's won't mind.....some might even be proud to have influenced you! :) Hey how do you like the upgrade to hard cases? A lot better than Elmo school book backpacks from the secondhand store huh? :)

    Hey, I rocked those Elmo backpacks and they were so much lighter. Hard cases are imperative though. I drilled some holes and screwed some clasps for locks onto my cans. I'm tired of those dirtbag BMW guys stealing my tools by simply unscrewing my home made PVC tool tube.

    I have a dummy PVC tool tube that's glued shut.....I lock it with a bicycle cable lock at night so it's loose.....got old sockets and screwdrivers in it so it rattles while they try and open it.....and if I'm in Sedona I tell the hippie chicks it's a "rain stick"......guess that makes it an entertainment multi tool. :)
