    Little vid of our fall ride through some of Utah's greatest trails! North to South (the hard way) through Lockhart basin, Needles, Canyonlands, Elephant Hill, Beef Basin, Bobby's hole, and Bears ears.

    Fantastic production and love those trails. Looks like some gnarly stuff that I now have to add to my list haha. Thanks for sharing.

    Great job on the video @Pitster! Fantastic job of combining drone footage with helmet cam footage, looks like it was one hell of a ride. And did one of the riders actually swap clutch plates along the trail? Damn.

    I haven't had a chance to ride Utah yet, but it's on the list and someplace I can't wait to explore. Pretty tough terrain, some of the sections remind me of Lippincott Pass in DV, like a really, really long version of Lippincott...lol.

    Thanks for posting and taking the time to splice the vid together, reminded me that spring and summer isn't that far away up here in the PNW.

    It was actually my friend that gets the video credit. Yes I had to change the clutch on my 790r mid ride, long story but we lucked out and was able to swap some clutch fibers from a friend who was finishing his ride! I won the lottery that day!!
    I have been up and down Lippincott Pass several times, and I can assure you some of the areas in this vid are much worse, Bobby's hole is beastly but short, Elephant hill and Lockhart have some real good challenges as well. Although Lippincott Pass is not cake walk either, I love Death Valley, headed down next week!

    Oh and lesson learned, the stock gearing on the 790r is way to high! Go down on in the front and up two in the rear!

    nice video! I appreciate you included some falls. I hate to think I'm the only one who lays it down a few times in the sand and rocks.

    What tire pressure were you running, and are you still tubless? Any flat tire issues or bent rims.

    Just watched, holly S****T :yikes

    Damn good riding, probably the toughest trails i've seen with a big bike. KTM should be paying you!

    Was just camping last year with the family at the Needles; wanted to get a spot up above Elephant Hill, but the rental place strictly forbidden any of their off road trucks up there (despite the 4" lift, skid plates and 36" tires). After seeing the video, i see why.

    Either way, amazing area and the kids loved it. Stayed at the Needles Outpost just before the entrance; great folks run it.

    Nicely done! Definitely a few "pucker" spots had me squirming in my seat. Love the videography. Thanks for sharing.
