Here're a couple photos of my Ida-Homie-turned-Utard pal Evan on our BADBs, around Joe's Valley Res, Reservation Ridge, S.R.Swell, and Skyline Dr. a couple weeks ago.

Friends and Backers,

Summer is coming to a close, and we are still hard at work building Hammerhead One. We are working tirelessly to get the product completed and shipped out to you as quickly as we possibly can. Check out our latest update video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wl5WLcxFYT8

Despite our best efforts we are going to be unable to ship Hammerhead to you this September. We are currently on target for a December release, just in time for the Christmas season. I know this is frustrating. You invested in our team, our product and our vision, taking us from three guys living on a prayer in Jersey City to the company we are today. Together, we’ve ventured through the twists and turns of product development and weathered the storms of uncertainty along the way. We ask that you finish off this ride with us and trust us to deliver the product you helped create.

Thanks for the tour! I'm hooked on the BADB.
Just installed a new set of shoes on the Tiger.
Looks like I better hone my skills if I gotta chase the 690 around.

Perfect conditions in the Mill Canyon Complex today. The wet weather made the sandy bits that much easier.

Hey neighbor, looks nice out there!

Looks a lot better than my view today, which involved an office and sitting at my desk. #notfair

Ride section 5 & 6 UTBDR

Wed is departure for COBDR, NOT! Looks like heavy afternoon rain. We were rained out last year at Gypsum, the roads are impassible when wet. If the weather forecast doesn't improve, then our group is headed to ID and NV.

So, I need to be in Pocetello Wednesday to meet my group from Jackson. Is anyone interested in riding Section 5 & 6 to the ID border Wednesday? I will ride Big Cottonwood, through PC, up Mirror Lake Highway to road 32, etc. Basically following the UTBDR to the border. I have no idea how long it will take. Departure will be early Wednesday in order to camp in Pocetello Wednesday night. I'm riding my big girl (KTM 1190). If anyone is interested let me know. If anyone has rode 5 & 6 and knows the time, please post it.

Wednesday ride

If I get my bike together today I might join you for a ride, I'm new to the area and am trying to meet people and explore the riding areas. I'm on a 530 setup for longer distance riding but it does well enough on singletrack. I have a 200xc that would do better on that stuff but its waiting for parts.

Where were you thinking of riding?

Probably head over big cottonwood, then into the Strawberry area to explore. I plan to go get lost, but be back before dark. Leave around 1. Check your pm's.

New Uintah GeoPDF

https://www.dropbox.com/s/mf55zuzl1i...40x60.pdf?dl=0

I've added many roads that are unknown accessibility. View on a gps enable smart phone. Android users get an app called "PDF Maps". iPhone users, see if you can find a geopdf app.

enjoy! I'm leaving SLC at 1 to go use this thing!

Thinking of loading my 690 (or riding) out to the west desert Deep Creek range for camping and some riding this weekend. Anyone interested?
