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....

Very good point.

I'm already going to be on that side of the country in Idaho Falls for the COG National, so was thinking of adding a day to go ride in Moab on the way back home. The trip itself is at the very end of August/Early September.

How hot does it get out there during that time of the year?

I don't go down there until after Labor Day. October is prime. This year has been dry (I was down there Thanksgiving weekend, also) but a lot of years there is snow by the end of November.

It's the Concours Owners' Group National Rally. For 2012, we had it in Eureka Springs, AR. Next year is in Idaho Falls, ID, and the following year, we're not sure just yet, looks like it will be Tail of the Dragon or somesuch.

We should meet up when I'm out there!

Pluric, thanks for the great photos. White Rim is an excellent ride.

Curious how the Super Ten did on the trail. If I remember correctly there are a couple steps and loose up or downhills along the way. Was the bike's weight much of an issue?

One time my son picked up my helment and asked "Sweat much?"

It really was not bad. The couple of kinda technical sections were graded out from
the last time I was there. The short sand section was even better. None of the big
bikes had any problems other than the Beemer bent rim and a drop on a loose uphill.
I remember thinking "That looks like a BMW signal lens" as I went by. Couldn't stop because
of the hill.

I would take the Tenere again.

Awesome!

I would prefer the 660 Tenere if I had a choice but we can't get it here (hear you Yamaha execs out there? )
