7 days in Moab on KTMs

SKIP TO PAGE 4 IF YOU WANT TO SEE 2012 UPDATE

Scruffy, Berolina, Spartan and me spent a week exploring toughest trails in immediate Moab area on dual sported KTMs(320, 2 450s and 530). We were spending nights in a condo(in Moab), no camping.
We did Kane Creek, Steel Bender, Pritchett Canyon(wrong way), Poison Spider, Sleek Rock with Hells gate, Cliffhanger, Rose garden Hill with Top of the World, and all of Sovereign trails(40 miles of it).
I could barely stand after that. I am sure that Riseless can do it on his 950 no problem.
for some reason gpx file upload fails, pm for the tracks
Everyone should ride this area if you have a chance.
All bikes survived, riders a little bit up but nothing major.

Ok,
First Ride - Kane Creek. Really beautiful, starts easy then flows through the creek bed. Sand, water flowing. Every time you ride it - you get to go different way. It's like a labyrinth. Not too challenging, depends on water level and season. Perfect in October. You go in and then turn around and go back or you could get oh pavement , but it's stupid.











Closer to the end you have to go through one somewhat rocky uphill and one other short rocky section

and some more





Then we had to help guys with broken down atv





After that last obstacle we played on the face of the rock until Spartan decided to test his fortune and ended up hanging about 50-60 feet above the ground. It was a scary moment, but we didn't waste any time taking pictures and then helped him out. Unfortunately pictures really don't show how close he got to pretty bad outcome.







On the way back I took lower route, guys got some pictures of me from the high up section








Views from the bottom were really cool as well.





At the end of the lower section somebody installed this steel ramp. Unfortunately it doesn't work with knobbies - It's like being on the ice.
It wasn't there 2 years ago.
