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.

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?

You could try the Pony Express Trail. Go to 5 Mile Pass, head West. I runs out South of Wendover. Not exactly trail riding, but technically it is dirt.

Nice, I've lusted over that accessory on the big Katoom. Did you replace the triple clamp?
Head out to 5 Mile and run south to Delta, should give you a good test ride....

I bought the bike with the Emig Triple clamp mod already installed. That's why I kept with the brand. Pretty simple mod except for getting the main bolts out. That took a few extensions and a swivel to get a bite on them.

Five mile to Delta is the plan!

Just ordered new rallye jacket and gs dry pants
Always thought it was easier to put on liner under coat then pants when it starts raining. So I guess for some of you I am sorry you won't be able to see me with my pants off on the side of the road

Anyone been to Butterfield Canyon lately? I walked there about this time last year while the road was still closed.

I am not trying to insult GS riders, but I thought this was pretty funny.

Are y'all getting slammed by these big wind storms? Not sure what y'all think, but 30+mph winds are not fun. The wind was bad enough again today, we had to shut down our well site for the afternoon.

does anyone know who "Utah Riders" is? I'm assuming they're on this board?

https://www.youtube.com/user/UtahRiders
lots of good youtube vids.

This is 990 adventures at what looks like Knolls as far as I can tell from just a couple days ago...
