So... last night I had a vivid dream from back in 2010 about the first off road ride I took on my newly purchased 2007 BMW G650 XCountry. The ride was on the legendary and surreal White Rim Trail near Moab, Utah, above the Colorado River and the Green River in Canyonlands National Park. I've included some actual pictures from the trip and some I screen shots from Google Earth that really show the hard sections, to help you visualize it with me... Everything started off fine, I stashed some gas on the return road so we could get a splash on our way back to camp and not run out of gas. It was a beautiful early Spring day and I loaned my buddy my old 1984 Honda XR350L to ride along with me, and off we went from our campsite. He was an avid mountain biker and hiker but a beginner on motorcycles.
