So inspiring, I need to get back down to south eastern Utah. I think my next adventure will be Hole in the Rock trail from the Bluff side.


I like riding motorcycles!

Thanks for the write up Pluric. Moab is a trip my wife has really wanted to do. Maybe this May but it will be a fly in and rent a jeep with our son and his girlfriend. I do plan to ride there on the bike one of these days. I'm a scenery addict and that place looks amazing. I love remote desolate places. I wondered why it took so long to see your front wheel lifted (3 pages) u getting old?

Maybe a little.

A few little ones leaving town and feeling kinda frisky. Last time I did a wheelie in
Moab I ended up in the hospital with a brolen tib/fib and a first hand look at the
bone in my arm. So I was a very good boy this trip.

That's a rare and unique photo. The KTM still has a mirror.

Awesome RR!

This is my dream trip for right now.

One question, and sorry if I sound like a total n00b here:

Would you classify the riding out there as advanced/expert level off-roading? I'm accustomed to riding gravel roads and some fire trails with my Concours, and not much else. I've done gravel on a KLR a bunch of times, as well as taken smaller dirt bikes out into the woods, but never anything like Moab.

Also, how did the S10 do out there? Any issues?

Going to attempt this trip next August.

Moab has trail levels for every thing. White Rim has been graded in spots since I was
last on it. Only a couple short sections are very technical. It does have loose spots
and some mesa climbs that may make some nervous. Anyone with resonable riding
skills should be fine. In the past I've used a 400 and 650 on it. The Tenere was fine and
I would use it again. The bent wheel on the BMW was a shock. We were not going at
an agressive pace. That one surprised me. My son was on a KLR no issues.

For sure there are trails there the big bores would be miserable on.

Onion Creek, Gemini Bridges, Sand Flats, White Rim, into the Lasal loop all would be
nice scenic large bore rides.

My Tenere has been in worse spots than the Moab trails we were on. Bent the rims four
times and replaced the rear with a Woody's special set up. You can bend a Tenere but I
sure have not been able to break one.

Dude,
Not sure I would plan a trip to Moab in Aug unless you plan to be in an RV or a motel. Scorching hot there in summer. Spring/Fall are the prime seasons.

My $0.02....
