Moab area?

Heading down to Moab from Banff Canada on the 18th, Doing White Rim trail what are some other awesome rides in the area for this time of year? Did Kane creek and horrah Pass last year on a Triumph 800XC - I found Kane creek hard at one spot. White rim and Schafer were spectacular. Any other suggestions for bikes that size?

Onion Creek. Not very challenging, but a great, unique ride.

Check out the UTBDR. It is big bike friendly. You can go from Mexican Hat to Moab in 2 days & see some great scenery. The GPX routes are here...

One way to find out. Hold your little carrot in front of them and let us know how it turns out.

Trying to get a taller van, so we are selling our E350 Super Duty, cheap. If anyone is looking for a moto hauler. $3k obo.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=960734

Well, trying is the wrong word. I am buying one either way, but this should go because it's one too many vans in the driveway. People will talk.

Staying on topic, if there is one, we took our daughter and a neighbor girl up to the B yesterday and they both had fun riding the KLX110. My wife did too. I just rode wheelies and did backflips all day. Because red bull gives you wings. It's as loose and rocky as ever up there, so it's a great place to practice sliding down hills with both brakes locked almost all the time. Great practice for, ah, moab? Didn't dump it, so that's new. Helene crashed the KLX trying to hill climb like it was a real dirt bike.

Super Duty!
Does that mean it has a diesel motor?

Still says super duty, whatever that's worth. I think it might be a one ton van. It's taken some really heavy stuff. It's seen some stuff, man.

you should come buy ours. I need the money, you need the room.

Here are a list of trails marked as easy from "Moab, UT Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails".
You can download the GPS waypoints for free off of their site.
http://www.funtreks.com/utah-books/g...ls-2nd-edition

Book Cliffs, Sego Canyon
Hidden Canyon
Bartlett Wash Road
Spring Canyon Bottom
Gemini Bridges
Long Canyon
Hurrah Pass
Sand Flats Road
Onion Creek
Dolores Overlook
Castleton Gateway Road
Potash Road, Shafer Switchbacks
Canyon Rim Overlooks
There are many medium difficulty trails as well that should be fine for big bikes.

I'll be down there in April with twenty other guys and doing a bunch of these as well.

Raised the bars an inch and added a damper on the nine-fiddy. Where is there some dry dirt to try them out near SLC right now?
