Welcome Inmates & Lurkers! Thanks for checkin' in. This thread is about dual sport daytrips from St. George, UT.

First an introduction, and a few pics

One of my bikes, the trusty TW200. Very good for exploring. More bike photos to follow, but on to the family . . .



The gorgeous wife, at Bryce Canyon National Park. We've known each other since age 17 (college freshman), married at age 30. Now 46 and going strong. I keep trying to interest her in polygamy since we live in Southern Utardia -- so far, no luck.




One of us just outside Moab:





With my son, age 10, in the Narrows of Zion National Park. Do this hike if you ever get the chance. Very easy from the bottom up.




And the group shot, from a recent rafting trip.




ADV is about motorcycles, so here's a few. Me with the 2008 Yamaha WR250R. Bought this bike a few years ago. It was the first time I had ridden a motorcycle since the Peace Corps in Africa, 25 years ago.




My dad, now 73, never rode motorcycles before. Just after I bought my WR, my dad started having troubles with his knees and could no longer hike or bicycle. Solution: I bought him the Honda 230 Dual Sport. He's not going to set any speed records, but he's always up for a ride -- nothing too nasty. Here's dad on his machine. You'll see him in this thread.




Last pic. A ride from my house to the Arizona Strip above Cedar Pocket in the Virgin River Gorge (I-15). I'll post this up shortly.




Offer up the ADV salute if you see me on the road. Ride safe.
