I was REALLY looking forward to riding out on the Navajo lands…….truly adventure riding in my book because I wasn’t able to get any feedback on ADVRider regarding these misc dirt roads out in BFE between the Grand Canyon to the West and 89 to the east…….so I was looking forward to heading out there and hopefully laying down some good active tracks for others to follow in our wake………we weren’t disappointed……..the views were unique and spectacular…….we skipped viewpoint/waypoint 3 (the first on the Navajo side of the Canyon) since we’d lost some time chasing down the bolt /sub frame issue……but that viewpoint/waypoint will be in the .gpx file I'll be posting......
On to Viewpoint/Waypoint 4.....
Viewpoint/Waypoint 4 was pretty spectacular……..and we both had cell reception too?!?!
We could see a few rafters down below...
Roger hamming it up again showing he STILL had some of “The Captain” in him….
Got a chuckle out of the GPS instructions on my route when we reached the viewpoint/waypoint, “When possible make a U-Turn”…….no kidding!
On to the next viewpoint……a lot of NOTHING in between viewpoints so we were able to twist the throttle and make up some time……we had a few sustained ~80+ mph stretches…….kinda nutty…..but also kinda fun
Some of the photos I've posted were taken with my cell phone so they're a bit blurry……but hopefully you see Roger on the bluff down below….
Roger’s mean machine out on viewpoint/waypoint 5
Roger snapping photos of me high above making my way down….(I was a ways behind because I tried a short cut that didn’t pan out…..it left me stranded on the bluff above)
Viewpoint/waypoint 5 was awesome……..reminded us both of Horseshoe Bend by Page……misc. photos below left to right)
Approaching Viewpoint 5
What a view
