welcome home!

Glad you guys made it home safe! Rob, really appreciate your pics and ride report. Very funny about leaving the snore machine behind. Most excellent!

Yep, lots of photos to post over the next little while. That might keep the warmth in my mind at least. Not used to this crappy weather now. Got a sinus headache right away last night, never had one while in Moab...too dry for one

BackRoader and 2whlrider...once you've tried orange...

Moab...

Hey guys, glad you all made it home safe.
Welcome back.
I'm still cooling my jets trying to shake this damn flu. Haven't been out of the apt in 7 days!
I think the fever broke last night, so am planning my exit for Sunday.
Cheers!

Edit: Just checked the forecast and it looks brutal!
Plan L is now in effect.
Going to try to get the hell out of the 'Peg tomorrow.

Moab reflections...

This is a shot I took of the old infamous Lions Back Hill climb. It's closed now and you can't realy make out any rubber marks on it from previous use. Go to youtube and type in Lions Back to see some old footage of jeeps climbing it and the one failure that was a web hit when some lady lost her brakes on the way down.

Old Lions Back Climb...the first part of the climb on the little toe area would probably be the size of Baby Lions Back that I climbed

Just to give you an idea on the size of Lions Back, this is 2whlrider at the bottom of Baby Lions Back contemplating on whether or not he should try it...there's more to it, you just can't see over the top

Hey Brian, it might be very prudent to postpone your departure, maybe until more favourable winds blow....
If you must.... ride safe.

Thursday Nov 8 ride pics......

Nice clean route, no mud holes.....

Nothing too technical except for one steep hill....

no problem on the 250cc bike........

old rail bed, now a roadway......

Little taco bike turned a milestone today......

Looks like the storm might shut down the riding this weekend.

Moab....

Bet your getting sick of hearing about Moab by now...I'm not With winter knocking at my door, I still like to look back at the great trip and riding we had there. The terrain held a wide selection of variety, from desert to coloured rocks to lush green mountians. Everyday was something different...providing you rode something different eveyday of course

Waking up every morning to this sight


I went up to the top of one mountain at 8,900 feet. The rocky small vegetation gave way to this...Giant white pines mixed with aspens.


Castle Mountain


And down on the lowland along the winding Colorado river, there was even a Winery...Castle Creek Winery, where BackRoader spent some time

Hey Rob, is it white there? Just managed to get the KLX away before the winter yesterday. Would have been a tough slug today. Got a couple of inches now and it's coming down again.
