Oh yeah. No being inconspicuous riding around with a sidecar rig. It's simply amazing some of the looks and reactions I get (a big smile, or thumbs up for example). The wife comments on it often.

Daryl, you cravings for motorcycling and fresh brewed coffee are an inspiration to me! Riding in Moab in 20 degrees is one thing but Beaudry park in freezing temperatures is an accomplishment!

I trust you were not tempted to steal the garbage can, it looked secure.

No, all good, but that particular spot overlooking the river is a bit of a party spot. Had to pick up a few beer cans scattered around which I threw into the (oh so convenient) garbage can. I always wonder about the mentality of someone that messes up a park, knowing it spoils the experience for others!

You know, although it was only about 0 or 1 degree out, there was little wind, and it really didn't feel bad out. Helps to dress for it, and I'm sure loving the heated jacket liner!

Update from Moab..... the road trip is winding down, so just a few photos until I get time to sort through the batch of pictures back in Winterpeg.

Yesterday was a great trip along the Colorado River, Shaffer Trail and White Rim Canyon switch backs returning on Long Canyon to the Potash Road and eventually home to the Hotel for the nightly visit to the beach (the hotel pool)

The Jug Handle.... on the Potah Road near the entrance to Long Canyon



The Colorado River from above on the Shaffer Trail.



Near the location where Thelma and Louise drove the car over over the cliff



Always time for a Captain and Cola pose


Mark96 stops to push a rock over the cliff into the River... just a little too heavy to get it going...



Too Heavy for me



Onto the Rim ride and up we go.....


It was close to 1800 feet up from the Shaffer to the top of the Rim




Finally at the top... the view is breath taking



Heading east on Long Canyon Road... the beautiful LaSal Mountains off in the distance.



Looking down into Pucker Pass




Further along the Long Canyon Road.... (not all rocks are cleared from the road.

Tusher Cave was first on the list of an interesting day...

The short but ass puckering ride through SAND, I hate sand, more than ever, brought us the parking area some 200 feet away from the entrance to the cave.



Aside from a growing hatered towards sand, I was lead into a poorly lit tunnel, which by the way is one of those things, not on my list of favorite things to do...

The creepy tree guarding the entrance to the tunnel..


2whlrider near the cave entrance



The exit photo...too shit scared to take any pics on the way through... I hung onto 2whlriders hydration bag tie straps.



Lappeman checking out the caves...





Cotter Mine Road






Some of the rocks that randomly fall onto roads

Later in the day we took off to Gemini Bridges to "test the metal", first stop... 7 Mile Rim Trail.

The first section of ledges proves to be enough for me..2whlrider goes a little higher for a better look





Lappeman runs up and down with little effort...





Lappeman decides to climb the Goony Bird Wall......


Freeze Frame..... wow, (2whlrider, waits patiently for his turn)

You guys are having a blast. Looking at those pics and videos, make me re-think next year's riding plan.
Ride safe and enjoy the rest of the trip. Keep photos coming

Quick question: how much of roads that you guys were on are accessible with regular mid size suv?
