I'm hoping I can... had an unexpected expense come up, so my plan to stay in Isabella and ride around before heading home is up in the air...

if I can find that one-star fleabag motel I used last time in Isabella for like $38.00 a night I might still be able to make it happen.

worst case scenario is I'll hit Rowher on Sunday

last pic of our campsite




the volunteer ranger (the older gentleman) recommended a nice campsite on blm land towards tuweep. it's in a secluded location, nice, quiet and less windy.




the view from our camp; sheez, the national parks took all the nice views....
Took a while to find your thread...

We were the riders from Park City who met you guys at the schoolhouse (Elmer_C and Stryka). Later you guys flew by us on the way up the mountain. I think h8chains was tearing up the hill one handed and taking pictures of us as he went by. Later, we saw you at the campground and in Rockville, Utard the next day. When the campground was full on the first night, we stayed in that same spot thanks to the helpful ranger on the KLR.

I can't believe that the other ranger threw you guys out on a Sunday night. The park service needs to stop giving summer jobs to those college kids from the east :).

If you're ever back around Zion / Rockville again send me a pm and I can point you to an unbelievably awesome free campsite.

Keep riding that 540 and keep going to the desert. Before you know it you'll be taking pics 1 handed while doing a wheelie

Anybody? Going to see Javier tomorrow to pick up my Giant Loop bag. I can pick up anything anyone needs while I'm there, and deliver it at Rowher at 7am Sunday.

Very nice, congrats!

I saw a brand new 2011 TE511 at Nukes last Sat and it was leaking oil from the valve cover area!

When I first brought my old Husky 610SM home, I took it apart and checked the valves and went through ALL of the fasteners, I found a few that were not properly torqued!

Word to the wise, check all of your fasteners before your first ride!

Enjoy!
