    Hey Sam, yes I am keeping it...I love the bike! The KTM is incredible but requires a huge amount of aggressiveness. Let shoot to get RRR out with us and enjoy a ride!!

    Will be in St. George April 11-18 visiting family, hope to do a day ride or two on my Husky I have stashed at my brother's place. Will post up closer to that date to see if anyones available to meet up, I need to learn more about the vast array of local trails.

    2010 TE510, as far as trails I like it all, extreme is fine too (though at 55 I'm not looking to be too extreme) and need more experience on deep sand.

    No stone left unturned!!! OOOUUCCHHHHH
    The entire road from the air strip on has had its classification upgraded at least two levels.
    The ability for any vehicle to travel three times faster than before will have its consequences this summer.

    I wanted to ride to Toroweap when I was in STG last July but never made it, front tire on the Husky got a gash to the threads/flat near Kanab and after fixing it I headed for home rather than risk a bigger blowout in the blazing heat and middle of nowhere.

    Spent some time a few months back in/around St George/Hurricane area on little bikes and mtb’s. My 3rd time there and now I’m convinced I want to move...so heading down in a week or so to do some house shopping. Looking at spots north of SG like Toquerville or Hurricane (open to suggestions here).I plan to return in a month or so with moto’s then, if all falls together bring the 1090 down in the fall.
    Anyway, I found the trail riding fantastic and I’m excited to begin exploring soon on the big bike so I can cover some green (or is it brown?).

    Sure wish I was out there right now riding out in the middle of nowhere I would think that'd be perfect social distancing! But instead stuck here in DC for who knows how long.

    Look north of La Verkin, UT and east of Hurricane, UT. Also Sand Hollow State Park.

    A lot of riding up there.

    I hope to be down that way later this week, maybe ride with some of you locals. Figure the desert is a great place to get away for the next couple weeks.
