Day 2 WRT part 3

Up Hardscrabble, I think. I did drop the WR within 2 feet of conquering the hard part of the climb half way. I stalled on 2nd gear. I had read guys change the front sprocket of the WR. Now I know why.

So one fall each for the day. Not bad for two noob's as this was our first real ride on dirt-worthy bikes and more challenging trails. We had been riding F650's in the past and got tired of turning around when the roads got more technical. F650's had horrible suspension, were heavy, etc. They are great for gravel roads and hwys, but difficult to handle on harder stuff. With the WR's, you just point and click with the bikes do the rest. Amazing.





And down Hardscrabble:





Hang on. Almost done with another boring WRT report:



Up the Mineral Bottom Road Switchbacks:



Refreshing at 70MPH on Mineral Bottom Road on our way to our hotel in Moab for pizza, pasta and Polygamy beer.
