I was reviewing the CL tracks and noticed the route takes us right past the turnoff for the Robbers Roost Overlook out near Hansflat Ranger station. It's a 15mi detour out there (30rt), probably too far to add to a 110 mi leg. I added it to the tracks just in case

I knew the Outlaw Trail went through there but wasn't sure where, interesting stuff.

That is a cool detour Chris. The question is though, how much to you want to baby the bike to conserve gas? It seems like the road from Hite up to Hansflat is really hard not to be flat tracking the corners the whole way

So the diehards are already mobilizing for the Koko

Ridefreak has done a lot of GPS work there are tracks for the entire ride. I will post up a few screen shots tonight, then once me and Ridefreak get the GPS tracks finalized I will email them to everyone.

So here is the approximate route we will be taking.

The plan is to have a few options for day three that cover anything from easy and fast gravel, fun 4x4 and 2 track to technical single track. People can then split into small groups and ride whatever fits them best for the last day. If there are people that ride in from Rabbit Valley I have have few tracks they can use to get back that should be some very unique riding





Just based off these tracks we will easily hit 430-450 miles over the 3 days. So we will be covering A LOT of ground each day For the group camping, the fist day will by far be the shortest.

Sooooo, hows winter treating everyone

Ok I guess a small group is the two of us

I think I have minimal ability to follow a GPS track--which I have--so. Planning on the night of 1 May in GJ at some motel TBD. 2 May stick my nose on a Delorme red line track and end up in Moab. 3 May--see if I can stay off of RF's Dump of the week Video.

Looks like a nice winter project but you might need a bigger gas tank.

Nice, XR4s are some of the most underrated bikes. My brother has one with a 440 kit and that motor is amazing, the powerband is just about perfect.

Yea, I think we can make it to Moab just fine. And I agree, no need to be on any vids.

Damn Paparazzi

Here's a big picture map with some of the places labeled. Yellow Dots = fuel, Yellow tracks = side trips or alternate tracks, Red tracks = bailouts.

Nice map of the trip. That is a lot of miles.

The red bail out route in the Maze that crosses the Dirty Devil river (Poison Springs Canyon) - it'll be tough if not impossible to cross the river on motor cycles at that time of year.
