Super incredible out in the west desert. It's awesome with cloud cover and temps in the mid-low 80s and beautiful dusk. Photos not doing it justice...




Inlet to Nutty Putty Cave on something the map calls Blowhole Hill. Pretty crazy story if you don't know anything about it.

Spot in little moab I tried to jam over but got stuck in this spot on the bash guard. I posed for a couple photos at the top to make it look like I was still actually riding it at this spot..




What good is a new bike without a few stratches and some broken off turn signals and mirrors within hours of riding it?


Then some jamming home, Kev and I switched bikes for parts of it...


Then back to Kev's farm in west valley that's in full bloom with tons of frssh food for a nice 10pm dinner... Pretty killer day / night! Def won't sell the little bike but had a complete blast on this slightly larger one...




Great times...

KTM Rally - Deer Valley

I was at The Edge yesterday and found out about this upcoming event. Edge hasn't promoted it much yet as they are just finalizing some of the details. I may volunteer to be a ride leader for a day or something like that to help out - the KTM truck will be there with some demos and stuff too. Looks like a blast.

My wife and will be staying in Saratoga Springs visiting her family. I plan on riding some days during Aug 8-15. I've ridden American Fork in the past wth locals, but it's been ten years. I'll only ride solo if all else fails.

If you want to ride AF, Hobble Creek, or Diamond Fork, let me know. I ride a 2005 KTM 300 EXC. I like singletrack and can hold my own. I'm a mid to slow B, but am consistent and can keep it going. I also have a KLR 650 and will do some 2-up rides with my wife. I like meeting new people, so don't hesitate even if you want to ride easy jeep roads. I'll just bring the appropriate bike. My wife will be with me on the easy road days.

Anyone riding BIG bikes on Sunday?

Would like to ride some dirt in cooler temperatures.

The AF, Mill Hollow, Strawberry Ridge, Wallsburg ride was a blast!

Didn't get to Corfu - we could see naked boobies from our front porch though.... It was like frosted flakes.,... Ggggggggggggreat!!

I have a condo rented and I'm signed up for the national in Taos.... I wonder if I should cancel that and just go to this deer valley ride instead? Taos is a long ride..... Hmmmm.... Who's going to Taos??

Just a heads up - I just registered for the Deer Valley Rally. I got a room at the Stein Eriksen just to annoy the rich people... But seriously - the rates that The Edge negotiated with them are pretty awesome....

Hope to see some of you guys up there.

Oh... and the other night (Thursday?) I was up in East Canyon on my bike and another guy pulled in on a blue 990.... I didn't get a chance to say hi cause we ran into an old friend there who was out mountain biking and we ended up chatting up a storm - whoever it was left before I could break away to say hi... was that any of you guys??
