Thanks for the info. If this ride comes together, we'll meet at BMW around 9:30 Sunday morning, continguent on how late Saturday night lasts
Does anyone have a gpx of this route I can have?

Or can you tell me which road you use from AF to Midway? Baker Fork?

And which road from Midway to Strawberry?

Would be much appreciated

North Creek Road to Barker Resevoir - ???

Does anybody have any experience with North Creek Road, which runs from Hwy 12 (East/North) of Escalante up to Barker Resevoir? Specifically, would you be up to taking street bikes up it? (Because I don't have anything more dirtworthy at the moment)

New to me 09 KTM 530 EXC

After two years of lurking, I finally pulled the trigger on a small KTM thumper for single track riding yesterday; well smaller than my 800GS or 1200 GSA anyways . Excited to get it dirty. Before hitting the trails I would like to do a mechanical shake down of the bike. This is my first KTM, so need to find a knowledgeable mechanic. Is the stealer (Edge Motorsports) my best option or can someone give me a referral for a better option. I live in Sandy, so anywhere in the valley works for me if they're good.

I had a terrible experience with the Edge. They screwed me 8 ways to Sunday with a DRZ I bought from them. I wouldn't take a potato to them and expect they could peel it!

Full Throttle in Centerville treated me much better.

4-stroke or 2-stroke?

Lindsay Machine Racing may do a shakedown for you, and they do solid work if you need something fixed. I don't know how much they do on chassis stuff, but the chassis stuff is simpler...even I can do most of that.

I would second Full Throttle up in Centerville. Also I would have them replace the oil pump o-ring then you won't have any transfer issues. If it gets low on the engine side it can potentially seize up if you don't keep your eye on it which is why I mention it. I did it myself in about 2 hours start to finish and about $80, for me it was a super enjoyable job actually... http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=697495

I love love am completely loving my 2010 KTM thumper for pretty much all things ADV. The only thing about the 08-11 models is there were some engine issues. But once dialed they run great and are a close second to the current model that is very advanced in my opinion...

But just keep in mind there will be some expenses and some repairs here and there...

From AF to Midway a good route is Snake Creek - Comes out at the golf course in Midway. You can enter at Tibble Fork.

Best Midway to Strawberry if via Wallsberg Main Cyn.

Use your GPS...

Since you're South Valley, check out ohvservicecenter.com 11277 S Redwood Rd. They're solid guys. Tell them you were referred by Brian Plummer (my neighbor), and you will get great treatment. Blain and Mike both have extensive KTM experience.
