Utah is on my bucket list in the next year or so...
thanks for chiming in...and i'm pretty sure @simbaboy will have a Moab meetup next year. let's make it the biggest and baddest monkey ride
the next day i let the monkey take a day off since today's ride is the White Rim Trail loop and will need more hp and suspension travel. we took the pavement to Canyonlands but when we got there, a mile long of cars lined up in traffic were waiting for us
eventually we were at the top of Shafer Canyon
unlike yesterday, this one we're heading down
waited for the guys so i can take a picture of them
we reached the bottom
at the junction of Potash and Shafer, i transferred my spare gas to my tank and had doubts that i don't have enough to complete the WRT loop. fortunately, these guys gave me another gal and half.
big thanks to this guy for the refill...
the xr400 breathing freely without worrying about running out of gas
worried that i fell off the trail, Carter walked down and searched for me. my bike stalled and could not find good traction. this pic was taken after i passed him while he's hiking back up. great riding buddy and proud of him.
the good old xr and rider
no clue what's underneath us
beauty below us
Man, I need to get to Utah...
Great riding out there Joel! That was a great group, great ride......lots of great fun!
White Rim Trail group.
My favorite photo of the White Rim Tail.......
Another from the White Rim Trail.
This was the day before the White Rim Trail.......all Monkey Business.
More Monkey Business from the day before......
Good times Joel, I have a few more of you but don't want to jump ahead. Here's another from Day 1
@Pcfly I didn't know you were a Monkey sweep, we just thought you couldn't get enough of the Monkey Biz. Anyway, thanks for watching out for the little guys on Day 1 and keeping everyone on the old folks eating schedule back at camp.
don't wait too long....depends on the date, i am ready to go back.
traffic is bad, so stay in town.
even in the shoulder season, Moab is already packed.
Paul. our timing was perfect and the campground (Moab RV) was great. i honestly enjoyed the company of everyone, and eating out was good too.
sorry, i used many of your good pictures and didn't give you credit for it. anyway, i know you're cool and really appreciate uploading them to my smugmug, they are safe and available for a long time.
thanks Dave. the monkey ride is epic. nice pics and thanks for waiting for day 3 for more monkey business. i'll get the WRT rr done soon.
Did anybody do WRT on the Monkeys?
@Some Beach was thinking of doing WRT. it can be done but i think the suspension is certainly inadequate. lots of 1 ft drop, shelves, embedded rocks and square hits; this is where the 21" front and 10" travel are essential. of course rider skill is the most important!
it is steep once you're on it
paul, carter and the never-ending scenic landscapes. KTM 500s ruled this ride!
the crew and the Green River
a vintage XR400 got in the mix
@Blaise W doing a fine job leading
6-day (ISDT) porn
shall we turned around and do it in reverse?
i said....let's just call it we had a great ride
the shadow is getting long and let's have a nice dinner in town!
the Monkeys next....Sand Flats - La Sal - Onion Creek Loop
Yup Joel, everyone had a very good time! Even Bill's body double kept coming by to see what we were up to. No worries on the photos.......I just want 90% of the profits.
Let me know when the next ADV is.
profit? how? i like to buy high and sell low.
thinking of going back to OR and ID in June. don't have details yet. i will keep you and the guys posted.
3rd Day of Moab Riding was purely monkey business
coming from Sand Flats and our intrepid leader @Mofrid is on full speed
towards La Sal Mtns
complete focus is required when you're on a monkey
as we go higher elevation, more snow, but the road was monkey friendly
lots of fun twisties
downhill is more fun
like always, actually steeper than it looks
The man, myth, legend
p.s. thanks for the video with both of my feet out like a Harley rider and was that French or Tagalog you were sweet talking me with?
Great job with the pics and brief reports. Those monkeys look like they'd be so much fun out there!
How the hell do you monkey guys know which bike to get on after a stop?
that was a monkey talk...come to the jungle and you'll learn
haha didn't Jimmy Lewis tell you always to keep one foot on the peg. no worry, not just Harley riders, kids do it too....
finally, got a decent picture of me...thanks a lot!
it's evolving from a toy to a wannabe dirt bike. fun fun fun.
no we don't! i just take what's left.
we made it down to Onion Creek....and the monkeying begins
@Some Beach are IN for more wet and wild frolicking
more water more fun
with so many water crossing (i lost count) everyone got wet!
did we get enough........apparently not, pants not soaked yet
using the tarmac to dry ourselves up
back in camp and tonight we're having pizza in town
