    The temps down there buy you guys ought to be just about right for some dirt biking.

    I'd like to offer a shout out to RedRockRider for sharing his awesome tracks. As I planned a long trip in September, I stumbled upon this thread which allowed me to find areas to explore that I never would have known about from simply looking at maps. Even though I didn't explore much around St. George (it was HOT for this north-westerner), riding North Fork Rd. to Navajo Lake and enjoying the vistas from Brian Head were wonderful experiences.

    I knew if I searched ADV I'd find something on St. George area, this is more than awesome! My bro and SIL are moving in Jan to halfway between St. G and Hurricane, looks like I may need to visit them often and buy a bike to leave out there.

    NAh, don't go buying a bike to leave there. Better you just move there as well and don't miss all the good riding. :-) :ricky

    Well well well, look who I found. Well actually he found me. I was doing a little work on my Borrego place, so we worked it out, and RRR payed me a visit. It's hard to keep this guy in one place for very long, I did manage to simmer him down for a few hours, hang out at my place, and then go grab some lunch.

    I know he's out exploring the southwest a bit on this trip, visiting some fantastic places, and surely taking lot's of pics! Hopefully he'll take a little time and give us all an update about this latest trip.

    Always great seeing ya RRR, thank you for tracking me down and spending a little time together. Continued safe travels out there!!

    Off for that next unexplored road on his new Versys 650, a beautiful bike indeed. BTW, yes he wears riding boots, they were back at the hotel.

    I hope RRR forgives me for hijacking the thread here a bit but wanted to keep it going. For years I have seen this old pioneer era home out in the middle of nowhere but it is surrounded by a river and a rugged mountain so I could never figure out how to find it. I finally figured it out and took a ride out on my Kawi. It was 57 degrees and blue sky yesterday so a great day to ride. The building is from the late 1800's and not sure if it was a home or school. Well built and very cool. Enjoy!

    I hate to see this thread whither out so here's a few pictures from a ride yesterday...hard to beleive it is February 9th and it is this beautiful! We've had some rain the last week or so, so everything is pretty colorful. Hoping I can get RRR away from his other duties and get him on a ride soon!! :D:clap
