    That was...words fail me. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for posting this. Damn Good Stuff.

    I clicked on this because Moab is on The List and because I am drawn to the 250 Rally. I had no idea this would be so wonderful. I don't know what was best, the riding clinic you guys gave or the performance of the little Hondas.

    I am wishing I was a Young Man again and that I knew then what I know now.

    You are still young enough to start off road. I had my X challenge in Moab at 64. Just use common sense, I know you have lots! Read your report to Mariposa you did in 2017.

    Redfish ... I am so glad you enjoyed the video. MOAB is amazing... you should see it one way or another. The 250 Rally's are quite manageable.

    I have seen Moab from the highway on my FJR. I will be picking up a 2018 DR650 either this afternoon or tomorrow morning but I am a LOOONG way from riding Moab.

    Great video :thumbup. Shows a nice variety of the terrain. Never been, but am researching routes that could be done on my DR650.

    Frickin' nice @danmcc6! The section around 7:53 looks like proper trail riding, nice job making it down to that wash and crossing. What part of the ride was that - the Kane Creek section? Awesome scenery and you guys hit a bunch of cool stuff from all the clips in the vid. Do you wish you'd have taken more than 3.5 days to cover that ground?

    Had a laugh when I heard the last song of your vid, have used the same tune from YT audio library myself.

    As others have replied, Moab is on my list and I'll be there at some point. Thought about going this year, but hitting Death Valley instead.

    Thanks for taking the time to put the video together, looks like it was a fantastic ride.:thumb :thumb
