Just did a week in Moab, with my Wife Janet(021150GSADV), my Son
Malcolm (Xchallenge), my Brother Paul and his wife Val (07R1200GSADV),
Buddy Mike and his wife Crystal (06R1200GSADV), Friend Tim and his wife
We took the ADV bikes and the Trials bikes
We also took the Jeep to let the wives do stuff while we where riding,
it worked out great.
"two up day" we headed south over and behind the LaSals, and
worked our way down Onion Creek, Nice easy day one warm up.
we let the women folk take the Jeep on the White Rim,
not all the way just to lathrop canyon. Paul and I just played around
taking pictures untill he ripped his skid plate off, damm there are
rocks on the White Rim trail??
Mike , Malcolm and Tim did the whole loop, and had a blast
Sittin' on the edge, waiting for
the women to catch up, having a cold one.
Even Mikie made it thru the SILT
was a Trials day, Slick rock is a blast, but I do not
understand all the mountain bikers, don't they know about internal
it is so much fun going up the rocks.
Malcolm on his 97 Fantic, Paul on his 90 Fantic, Mike on his new Sherco
2.9, Tim on his Bete Rev3 and I was on my 02 Montessa 315R.
Tim and Lynn left, and
Malcolm took the women in the Jeep sight seeing.
Paul, Mike and I went out to Gemini Bridges where Mike got to the
sand and said "screw this" and headed back to camp ( hanging out at
Moab Brewery?), Paul and I went onward,
met up with a Guy on a new KLR on a trip from the Bay area, Ken, So Ken
hooked up with us and we did Spring canyon and then Long canyon back to
Having fun on my
GS riding solo in Spring Canyon.
decided to do another two up day as Mike and Crystal headed home in the
early AM, So we took off thru Castle valley over to Gateway CO, down a
very fun paved 141 to a dirt road (CR722) that took us back to 191,
very easy but scenic.
Ate lunch here in Gateway,
When did they build this place???
Part of the old water flume from the
1800's very impressive.
and Val headed out, So Malcolm and I decided to do Lockhart Basin
So we headed out over Hurrah Pass, then up Lockhart, Someone once told
me not to take a GS in there, It had a few bad spots, but all where
rideable on the big GS, Just had to pick a line carefully. I only took
a couple of pictures as when I got to them I did not want to stop and
look at it any longer than necessary. It only had about 6 or 7 rough
spots with the last on a down hill set of steps that I would not wanted
to go up on the GS
Pictures just don't do it justice,
Photos look easy, or I should say
not as bad as it was.
did someone get this thing in
Had a blast
Till next year
in SILVERTON CO.
