I bought the 70's a few years back as a pair. They have been together since day on and have 900 miles on them-all original! My family and I enjoyed them but decided to sell them to help raise money for a new church building. Told my buddy Troy and he sent me a check last October for them figuring we'd meet in Moab. Worked out perfectly. BTW....you even parked in the same place at the HIX:-)

Yep, that was an epic ride indeed! Awesome job on all the video editting, love the 'cowboy sepia', definitely gives you the Old West feel. And the T70s are definitely enjoying their new home.

That video was impressive. Were you running stock gearing and clutch?
How big are you?

Stock gearing and clutching. As far as size goes, Im a mix of linebacker and lineman! 6'3" 265lbs Yes a 400lb bench press and 20" arms do come in handy when you're riding the 1190R in technical terrain. That being said, it is an incredibly well balance machine

It's probably important to make the point that the Slickrock Trail shouldn't be attempted by most riders on big bikes. Obviously you are a skilled rider on a competent bike (as are many here), but you have size and strength well beyond most riders.
Some of the trails that have been closed to motorcycles near Moab were closed due to repeated rescues of bikes and riders. Towing companies hauling ADV bikes off of the Slickrock (a very likely scenario), or oil spots on the slickrock from broken cases and clutch rebuilds, would leave a very negative impression on the bicycle riders who are the predominate users of the Slickrock Trail now.
Enjoy your next trip, I suspect after riding the same trails on a dirt bike you won't be so interested in riding the big bike on them.
Have fun.

Guess what? I cant wait to go ride my BIG bike on Slickrock and a few trails that "shouldnt be attempted on a Big Bike". I get your point, but this is America and we have the freedom to do things that others may consider foolish. Too many people worry themselves to death wondering what people think of them or if they offended any one, instead of living their own life. The MTN bikers will be just fine..........
