    A large group from California and Nevada recently gathered to ride the trails of Moab on their dirt bikes. Most of them had seen the light and the way and were on two-strokes. Here are seven days from my perspective, in pictures and videos.

    Well that would explain the stains and the smell.

    I did some more bucket list trails but still have some on my list:
    • Pritchett Canyon
    • 5 Miles of Hell
    • Top of the World
    • Onion Creek
    • Tenmile Canyon/White Wash
    Pritchett used to look really intimidating but now looks very doable. 5MOH used to look doable now it looks too intimidating and I think I'll do it on a trials bike. Some of our group did it and had a hell of a time, with rain and flash floods making it even more hellish. The same group also did Tenmile and it looked like fun. I just didn't want to waste valuable time driving hours away from Moab.

    Speaking of which, we headed out to Top of the World and were turned back by a ranger blocking highway 128. The rain had caused a landslide blocking the road ahead. That's when we went and did Metal Masher.

    Watching your videos and checking out your pictures is going to cost me money...

    I need to get a 2 smoke. :lol2

    Did the PS / GS trail. A bit of a workout on heavy ass 4st. Can't wait to get back there now!

    The Poison Spider obstacles were so much easier two years later. However, I made the exact same mistake on the first obstacle. Wrong line, too slow, stalled into a ledge.

    As much as I malign heavy ass 4 strokes, mine was awesome on White Rim. I wonder how it would have done on the teeth rattling trails, as it tends to soak up the smaller stuff the 2T lets you feel.

    I need a new helmet cam. My Contour Roam won't eject its MicroSD card and the microphone pics up unwanted rattling noises and cuts out because the noises are too loud. It also is too jittery on the teeth rattling trails. I would like one of those smooth Sonys like Barry from Oz uses.
