Utah corner #3

ME - Stranger in a strange land..... Iron Maiden rules!!


Lucin, UT!


Lucin, Ut. The only place we've seen in some time with water that you might actually be able to drink.


Hmmmm, home sweet home.


Yep, we are in the middle of nowhere. Keep an eye on that gas guage...hmm well there isn't one, oh well... just go for it.


Somewhere north of Lucin.


Are we there yet?


Not even close! The #3 corner is out there... somewhere...


We just need to get through this gate...


er, I should say gates with an "s". Now, I should say here that we were extremely lucky to run into a rancher who
gave us some directions, because we were lost. He was also nice enough to give us the code to all of his gates,
otherwise I don't think we would have ever found it.


BoomBostic is a good gate opener. I lost track of how many there were.


are we there yet? The gates were chewing up a lot of time so we worked out a system where we would "leap-frog"
each other, by the time I got the gate open BoomBostic would arrive and fly on thru and he would do the same for me.

Holy crap! We made it!


I think we've been riding for about 8 hours at this point.


artsy fartsy... Utah is awesome, by the way!


Idaho, Nevada.....don't know much about these two, well except I did just do a ride to Glacier (a reprt coming soon,
hahah like 2 years from now at my pace) and Idaho did impress me.


The trail was quite faint at this point.


I still can't believe we found it. (No GPS)


Me. Hello everybody. My face is a little dirtier than normal.


Nothing for miles.... how many miles, not sure, but we need gas.


Well, lets go daylight is burning.... what? What did you just say, it won't start?

We got the bike running again, for some reason the battery cable came disconnected.
About to ride up powder coat hill, that crap was deep.


It doesn't look like much, but it was difficult to ride up.


We don't have enough gas to ride the way we came so we have to head further north to Oakley, ID.


Nowhere land.


Gas! Food! What time is it anyway?


The original plan was to ride back down the west side of the Great Salt Lake, but we were running out of daylight, so we headed east in search of pavement.


City of Rocks, ID - I spent many days rock climbing here.


It's a really beautiful place.


If you look real close you'll see rock climbers.


Getting late.


Gotta blast some dirt roads for a while.


The End! - Only 134 miles to go. It was a wonderful adventure, thanks for watching.

Good bye Oscar... Hello Claire!

So some things have changed.

I apologize, I'm slow at keeping my RR up-to-date and even though I don't get many comments I assume (with 10,000 views) that someone is enjoying this or at least I hope so.

Anyway, I sold the KLR and bought a brand new 2009 Yamaha WR450f. (the kids named her Claire) I found that I spend 99% of my time off-road and that I kept pushing the KLR beyond it's abilities. It was a wonderful 50/50 machine, I would have kept it if I could and I was sad to let it go.

Here is a video of me and Claire on some single track.

Moab 2.0

Moab! This is my second trip to Moab, how could you not love this place. It's too bad it's a 3.5 hour drive from my house, it's sooooo far... hahahaha

Taking a break. Hells Revenge!


Gotta love slick rock. C-bass on is 03 450WRF


Too fun.


Taking it all in. The outlook point on Hells Revenge. The Colorado river below.





C-bass


Me.


Gotta figure out how to get back on the trail.

Dan the man. The La Sal Mountains in the background. I want to ride there sometime.


Spencer on his rented WR250f. Good times for a noob.


Beautiful day for a ride.


What goes down must come up.


Oscar looking good.


Me and Oscar, he was good to me.


Hurrah Pass in the evening.


Such amazing landscapes.

Hook & Ladder.

The next day we drove a few miles south of Moab to a place called Hook & Ladder.

The pace had some very cool riding.


Slickrock, sand, rocks, dirt, single track... the place has it all.


Here they come.


And it had some really nice views. Wilson Arch.


Looking to the South. Very remote place, it's not the kind of place where you'd want to crash. ;)


Posers!


Checking out the view...


& the map, where are we?

Wilson Arch, if you look really close you can see two people standing underneath.


Towards the East, football anyone?


Really cool place.


Ruins.


We did have a "cager" with us.


Pretty cool.


Kind of scary to climb up, good thing I'm a rock climber. I think SeeBass rode through some radioactive waste.


The La Sals in the distance. Do you see the petroglyphs?


What a beautiful late September day.


The beginnings of an arch.


It was an awesome day of riding, other than my big crash. I don't think the KLR was ever meant to have it's tires leave the ground.
Anyway, I was riding pretty fast and hitting these little rollers which allowed me to ride little wheelies off the tops until one time
the front came down and got into a wobble which threw me off high side down the trail. It hurt pretty bad.

Fall Ride, American Fork Style.

It was a beautiful fall day so BoomBostic and I had to take a ride. On the KLR's from Riverton UT, to American Fork Canyon.

Lone Peak taken from the end of my street. I've stood on top 7 times (11,000+), rock climbed the 700ft face 5 times.


Mt. Timpanogos South Summit - taken on the way to American Fork Canyon.


On our way up to Silver Lake Flat Reservoir.


Climbing higher.


Silver Lake Flat. The trees were amazing last year (2011) we had a very wet year which helps the colors really shine.


Super easy riding so far.


We had an early layer of snow to that year. I though for sure it was going to be another epic ski season, boy was I wrong.


Silver Lake Flat - looking towards Mt. Timpanogos. I stood on top, once. Sundance is overthere somewhere.


The aspens were in full swing. It was amazing!


Oscar, looking good.

Fun easy riding.


BoomBostic, the road gets smaller and smaller. What a perfect day.


Me!


We made it to the end. Snowbird ski resort is just over the ridge.


Heading back down.


BoomBostic doing some yoga? Not sure which pose this is, worrior?


Water crossing, it was actually pretty deep and bumpy.


On the west side of Mt. Timpanogos.


I have never seen so much yellow. Just over the far ridge is downtown Salt Lake City. That's Lone Peak in the distance.


We were loving it.


South Summit of Timpanogos (11,000+)


What a great way to spend a nice fall day, better than sitting in church.

Moab weekend

Brent, have you looked at the pics from this last weekend yet? I think we need some more JB weld action.

So I've been a slacker, or maybe having too much fun on my WR.

American Fork, Single Track!
