    The footage in your home videos is now better than the Dakar Rally coverage

    Another great ride Sunday. The 2 strokes really like the cold temps, it's like the world is your intercooler :lol3

    Not to discourage you John but officially this isn't an authorized riding area, not that that stops anyone. On top of that it's about 80sq miles and very easy to get lost out there as the exits are limited by a huge ridgeline. There's quite a few arroyos coming off the ridge but only about 1% of them actually get you back over the ridge where the parking is at. It's definitely a place where a guided tour is recommended as there's no cell signals unless you climb a big hill. Add to that trails going everywhere, no markings and your line of sight is limited by the hills around you. Just a suggestion but have you thought about riding the Glade in Farmington? I'm not trying be evasive about this place but you have to be down in it to fully grasp the size and remoteness of the area. Walking out would take hours and getting a truck in is impossible for much of it. My buddies who live here and ride it a good amount often get turned around out there. If you still want to go and can swing it on a weekend PM me, if I can make it I'll show you around. Just know you have to like riding sand, there's allot of it and some of the guest riders get in a few miles and want to go back because of the sand and whoops. It can be a lot of work depending on the bike, skill level and rider's energy at least till you get used to it, sand and whoops will characterize the day. Much of what's on the video is the remote areas we seek out that hasn't been ruined by SBSs. They are almost impossible to find if you don't have someone showing you.

    Great videos. Really enjoying them this morning. Haven't ever ridden down there, but I'm hoping to check it out this winter or spring.
