[QUOTE=BackRoader;17107201] to go to the Moab in two weeks. [QUOTE]

I have a gps track for White Rim Trail if you want= I can dig it up for you (Can't recall if you use GPS) White Rim is easy going.....some of those other trails were too rough for me.....Steep climbs up Jeep rock trails etc. I would like to get back to Moab someday again.It has a great off-roading scene there. You will really like it.

Thanks Karri, I have a Zumo660, so I am sure I can figure it out.
Still waiting to get a bike I can take to Moab. Mark96 has been in touch with someone who has been there and is supposed to provide with info of the area.

Chapleau, Ultimate Fishing Town

So, Chapleau won the Ultimate Fishing Town contest this summer. The town received the $25,000 prize to be spent on fishing related stuff. An awards ceremony was held at the town beach which I attended. Check out the 24 second mark on the video to see me leaving.

If fishing is your thing, Chapleau is a great place to plan your next trip.

Cool! You usually take off a bit smoother than that, though!

You should buy one of the KLRs with the "Deep Water Air Intake Option" like this.

Hopefully I will find a KLR today that I can use at Moab. Not many on the market this time of year.
