My preference would be to not race through the day's rides and explore and see what we can if there is time....if anyone else is interested in doing that.
Concur...I'm all for the exploring thing! I'd be driving down from Bend a few days early.

Lockhart Basin

Here's a quick vid I threw together of Lockhart Basin, I did it fast so don't expect George Lucas quality but you'll get the idea My son and I rode this last year, I sped the video up because he's new to dirt and we sorta plodded along, also the trail is 60miles of the same thing, you'll get the idea soon enough

The entrance near Chicken Corners (begining of the video) is the worst of this trail and it's not hard. I don't have any video of Elephant hill.

Dumb question time.....

Does the Kokopelli part of this ride cross the river? I did a mountain bike race from Fruita to Moab on the Koko several years ago (1993?) and recall holding my bike over my head in fast moving chest deep water.

Got you down, welcome.


_CJ.

None of the Koko goes through the river. Maybe there is a non-moto portion that has a section in the river, but I did not think so.

With any luck RF will let me in his group, I think I can hang, at least for awhile

I'd be up for starting/ending in Rabbit Valley. I bring all my camping gear, but at some point I'm gonna want a hot shower, maybe even every night, whether it be @ a campground of whatever.

It will be great to ride with the Southern Chile Riders again, it's been way to long.

42 mpg out of a 650 is pretty good. My berg got aroud 34. And any of my 510 KTM averaged about 38.

Not really, most guys are getting around 50 for DS riding on the XRR. Even with a pumper

I want to ride Kokopelli again, but I'll probably haul to Moab and leave my truck there. I'll carry camping gear, but if we're near a town with a motel I'll take advantage of that when possible - but I'm good with backcountry too.

I'll be in some places I haven't seen before, so I'll be riding a good pace but wanting to stop and take pictures too.

The 310 is capable of 60+mpg, but it's capacity is limited to 3 gallons plus a few Primus bottles (another gallon total)
