    Seth from Utah Enduro Adventures took me on a tour of his favorite local trails. Mineral Basin did not disappoint!

    I'm thinking this is normal for one of these bikes? Without seeing the gradient this kind of surface is what I take my S on. And not much standing on the pegs? They're good bikes

    It's interesting when you put question marks at the end of some sentences .. they become ambiguous statements.

    Got rocks? :)

    At least you did us the courtesy of breathing a little hard.

    It's gotta be tough when your guide just seems to skate on through. Does he dabble in trials riding. Almost looks like it.

    85F, 9000ft and being way out of shape will cause heavy breathing for sure ;)

    OK, apologies for my grammar, it looks like the guys didn't stand on the pegs very much.
    So it's no longer a question it's a statement of observation

    They are all in out back Australia. Plenty of stretches of more than 300 miles without fuel.

    In Patagonia Ruta 40 south of Perito Moreno is quite a large empty stretch. There is a fuel station lost in the middle of nowhere at Bajo Caracoles, but when we stopped there it was dry, and they where no sure when their new shipment of fuel would come. We ended making a detour, leaving Ruta 40 for Gobernator Gregores, just to refuel, as the next station on Ruta 40 would have required a range of 480kms, way too close for comfort due to the amount of wind blowing in our face. I was happy to have a large tank for the unexpected range. This pic is from somewhere in the middle, when your tank is already quite low…

    I just stumbled upon this on the gram, as I follow the 790adv hashtag and threw you a follow.

    Some badly needed log hopping practice with a full luggage load out. Also reminds me that I need to stiffen up the rear preload and compression a bit to account for the extra load... Good thing the bike is good because my technique sucks! LOL
