This land was made for big KTMs

Basically Utah, Colorado and Wyoming all come together in the distance in this photo

Swinging Bridge (yes it really swings.. especially if you land a wheelie in the middle of it )

Why I own a KTM Adventure:
Ride 500 miles of dirt.
Sit a few minutes.
Listen to the silence.
Take the picture.
Ride 500 more miles of dirt.



Can anyone guess how I got this photo angle?

The correct ratio of KTMs:BMWs.

He can land a 747 in Tokyo but I'll be damned if he can keep this thing on two wheels

(Hondo in the photo)

Sandwash Basin in Northwest Colorado is 157,000 acres OPEN to OHV



That's 245 square miles of nothing but fun!
I highly recommend it if you have the chance.
This area is so sparsely populated you can ride single track and dual track for days and not see another human.

In fact you are more likely to run into packs of wild horses than other people (and we did ).





Everything you see in this photo is part of Sandwash Basin (and 100x more):

Nope - guess again

The photo was taken by a Sony NEX7 with a Rokinon 8mm aspherical fisheye lens...

Everything behind me is Sandwash Basin and fully ORV friendly. Bring lots of fuel as the nearest gas station is hours away.

Answer to the "aerial shots": monopod



Yeah.. I'm the guy out in the middle of the desert that looks like an idiot holding a stick over his head
