99.9% sure this pic is taken within the boundary of one of the sale areas, still looking for a more detailed map, but I believe the northern part of Eagle Canyon, Coal wash etc are on that map between I-70 and the Moore cut-off some amazing canyons, cliffs and wild lands that are currently mostly open to motos on old roads etc...I grew up here, spent a large portion of my life in the Swell...Buckhorn was actually a jeep road at one point in my short life...I remember when they said nine mile would be too expensive to extract from, now that jeep road is paved... I get it, without Uranium exploration many of the places I ride and 4-wheel would be hard to get to, but I'd hate to see those "roads" improved for 18 wheeler access...Or lose access like many places in the Book Cliffs...I agree SUWA is an all or nothing entity which makes it hard them to compromise on anything, but somewhere there has to be a middle ground - leave it as is now, don't make it wilderness and dont start the bulldozers improving roads for more oil...yep I'm a native Utard, conflicted right-wing, gun loving, liberal redneck....If everyone did things my way, I'd be much happier...See you at the garage Andre

Hmmm. Not the best way to start a motorcycle ride.

Jake couldn't agree more too... I do wish there was some compromise that could be made... And good point about 9 Mile. Basically I think its when they frack it and these wells become really profitable they are willing to put $$ down for a pipeline and make it work. There is a law that allows them to put in a pipe line and that that point it would be 'paved' even if was dirt.. pretty sure there's one under the road in 9 mile.. But it also still has to go through another round of public comment to allow building of it, but by then its usually too late...

Here are photos of when we were up in the area last fall with Harcus and gisKEV, these are some of the old uranium and seizemic roads, up on Cedar Mesa. The roads up there are pretty fast and groomed already so this is where I was thinking it really didn't matter too much to me. This was a great little section but a road to nowhere. I spent about a month checking out almost all of the old seismic roads on the maps and google maps in the area in an effort to stay off the groomed roads. This is north of buckhorn...



some of the land and "unimpressive tundra" - also lots of private ranches just north of here...



agreed that north Eagle Canyon etc would be a travesty... This is central southern (I'm sure we all know this spot) but plenty of time down there and on Eva Connover as well...

You can get to within about 500 yards or so on the road but then they have a gate to keep people out. Wish I could join you but too much work to do this weekend.

Help! Stolen Bike.

Woke up this morning to find that my bike was stolen. 3 dogs and they are all heavy sleepers I guess.

Anyways I would appreciate if you could keep your eyes out for it. I know it isn't much, but I would like to find it before it becomes some wanna-be-orange-county chopper or something.

Pics:


It has a 4-wire trailer plug that hangs off the left tail:


Please call the local police if you spot her.

Thanks.

Shoot. Sorry to hear about the stolen bike. I will keep my eyes out for it. Hopefully the dude/ette will be pulled over on it.

Thanks all!

To just put the icing on the cake; notice in the first picture that my timing cover had fallen off? 5 minutes after I post this I get an email from ebay telling me my new timing cover has shipped.

Dear thief,

I still have the top box, tank bag, and GPS that goes on the bike. Drop by and I will have them ready for you.
