Great pictures! Makes me wanna go back already even though I was about the area in June. Sigh! How am I ever going to get to the Eastern mountains with pictures of the West being showed here.
Thanks for the time and work of sharing.

Currently reporting from L.A.
Oct 22: Riding the Nebo loop Rd north of Salina thru the Unita National Forest












Stopped to say hello & met fellow dirt bikers Brent, Gary & Mitch.
We shared some of our passion for riding. Looks like some great offroad in the area.
Was good meeting you guys, hope you had a great day.
If you come by please say hello.
OH & Brent the name of that rear tire for dual sporting your KLR; AVON GRIPSTER. (whatcha say Todd, Gripster abuser extraordinair!)








Next up, one of the coolest twisty road pics ever. Fellow riders you'll be drooling!

OCT 22:
Got to Salt Lake City, setup storage for Suzi.
Went for a ride up the Little Cottonwood Canyon to the ski areas of Snowbird & Alta.
These 2 phenmenal ski areas are only 12 miles out of Salt Lake. 15 minutes with no traffic (& no snow).
The colours were amazing






Took this picture of the Cliff Lodge at Snowbird for my buddy Arie.
We stayed & skied here about 5 years ago. Considered it to be the best resort we had ever skied at.
Well at least untill we skied Jackson Hole. Then it was a toss up.


& here it is, a motorcyclists road to drool over
This is part of the road up the Little Cottonwood Canyon.
Had to ride that section a couple times.




Beware the Dino-Rock







Fantastic roads & Ski areas just East of Salt Lake City.


That's it for Fly-ride 10. Wow. Amazing sights & riding.
Love Utah! Gotta Fly!

Hi Roland!

I like Gripsters very well.
I also have not found a tire that I did not enjoy abusing.

Ya, I love the way you ride Buddy.
Spirited all the way!!! Oh no not that kind, that's after.
In your case however the grip part doesn't really hold up does it.
Or gee maybe, is it the tire. Hmm...

Nice to meet you as well Rob.

Wow that was some of my best riding ever. Dug your local canyon roads
Gonna ride em again today & try to catch more of the views & pics.


Latigo Canyon was the best, most fun motorcycling road I have ever done. Fun Fun Fun
On Mulholland went round that 180 degree curve past the photog & had the bike down so low the peg & my case were scraped the road .
First time I've ever been that far down.
Had to keep my toes well up all day or they'd a been scraping the road all day.


Met a lotta cool people yesterday some new friends, more later.


Tall Rob. I was standing as tall as I possibly could.
Yup he's TALL


Gotta ride
