Just finished my first trip to Moab........

Just got back last weekend from 3 days of roosting Moab on my new KTM Adventure 1190R. What a blast I met my buddy Troy out there so we could make an exchange. That's right, and exchange! I sold him my two 1970 Honda 70's for him and his wife to enjoy out in Half Moon Bay, California. Needless to say, Troys drive to Moab was LOOOOOONNNNNGGGGGG. We met up at the Holiday Inn Express around 230, unloaded, and went riding!

Day one was a quick trip out to Gemini Bridges. That is a nice easy first day ride to do a shake down cruise on. Here is Troy on a Bridge

After seeing it from up top, we went down in the canyon via Bull Canyon road. This was a nice change of pace; more sand, more rocks, and more fun!

This area is awesome! Lots of varying terrain, both slow and fast, technical and easy. Here is a video from parts of the day.

Yep, that was an epic ride indeed! Awesome job on all the video editting, love the 'cowboy sepia', definitely gives you the Old West feel. And the T70s are definitely enjoying their new home.
