Hey RRR,
I know I have tons of awesome reports from you check in on. But, I finally got some riding in with my bro and I'll write soon. Just wanted to say hi and glad to see you're still writing and riding during my absence. Will catch up soon. Rubber side down!

Backside of Utah Hill

Out poking around on the backside of the Utah Hill a few days ago. Several dead-end dirt roads. Always good to verify.

Just west of the summit below Jarvis Peak. Old rock quarry in this area.




Skeleton trees from a fire many years ago.




End of the road. No legal motorized travel. Would possibly make a good hiking trail. Excellent views west to Nevada.




On a different dead-end ridgeline. This is on the north side of Old Highway #91. Town of Beaver Dam, AZ with I-15 visible in distance.




Found an old stone house on a trail up a wash.




Water tank for dispersed cattle operations.




Thanks for checkin' in. Great weather in Southern Utah. Get out and ride!

Maybe not meaningful to many of the readers, but it is to me! About the only place in the area where you won't find them.

RRR-

If you need to change it up a little on your TW, here's an idea...



Saw it today at a monthly vintage bike gathering in Huntington Beach. While the bike is not vintage, it sure drew a crowd.

BTW, your last post on Silver Reef & Leeds was fantastic!

Thanks much. Sam

Hey Bob, I think Quota's Cinnamon Roll place, Sweet Pea Bakery & Cafe, is out of business. Link to page 6. Not good. Quota will have to find us a new place.

Sam -- that TW looks great. Should attach a golf bag to the front end and use it for some "off road" play. Unstoppable in the rough or sand!

Seegmiller Mountain, AZ Strip

Seegmiller Mountain is a short side trip from the main dirt road from St. George to Mount Trumbull Schoolhouse. Good for a couple of hour round trip from St. George. Here's the Benchmark map:




Extra gas wasn't needed for this trip, but I often carry it on the AZ Strip. Never sure what opportunities might present themselves.




The turnoff to Seegmiller Mountain is well marked. Route #1069 is the main dirt road from St. George south, similar to a dirt highway. After reaching the top of Quail Canyon there is a modest descent to the left (east). The road becomes more dirt and less gravel. At the bottom of the short decline is the signed intersection to Seegmiller Mountain.




Dad and I got our schedules synched up. He's along on this ride. Always good to have partner on the AZ Strip.




Weather was overcast and blustery, but no real threat of rain. Turned out to be quite a good afternoon of riding. Thanks, Dad!




Some radio transmission equipment at the top of Seegmiller Mountain.




Warning sign. Didn't hang around here very long.




A short distance away still on the summit ridge line. Fantastic views down to the east. Lots of rugged terrain.




We skirted further around to the south and east of Seegmiller Mountain. Looking back. Radio tower visible on summit. Seegmiller Mountain is very recognizable from St. George, but not possible to see the radio tower without binoculars. East face of Seegmiller has some dramatic exposed red/orange/yellow rock.




Returning back towards Quail Canyon and Route #1069. Always great to be out with Dad!




Thanks for dropping by, inmates and lurkers.

Very cool pics of Leeds and Silver Reef...those cemetaries are very cool. I wandered through those last year and really makes you think. Great pics. Hope to get down in next few weeks to ride again...

New Toys

Went to Brian Head last weekend. Picked up two motorbikes to bring back to St. George. Riding season is finished at high elevation. Snow is falling.

Neighbor is selling two Yamaha snow machines. Good deal. Cleared out some garage space and sealed the deal. Hopefully they will turn out to be fun. Bring on the snow!




FX Nytro MTX. Should be a good mountain sled.




Second machine is a smaller Phazer, light and nimble. Only 30 miles and 3 years old.

Thanksgiving Rides with Nephews

Hope everyone is having a nice Thanksgiving weekend. I've been out almost every day with four nephews and one niece. We've mostly been on ATVs, easier for everyone to tag along. Also been out briefly with Pop once on motos. Pop is wife's dad, only in Utah for occasional visits. Very nice to be surrounded by family.

Pic of my Southern CA nephew (works for Pimco in Newport Beach). He was in St. George early. Off to Oklahoma for T-day with his girlfriend's family. The TW is a perfect bike for the occasional nephew ride.




On a different day I was out with this nephew, also a Southern CA guy. He's looking to take the LSATs and apply to law school shortly. Didn't want to risk a broken arm on the moto so we took ATVs to the Sand Hollow Sand Dunes. Also had neice and nephew from PA out on the sand dunes. They thought it was amazing. City kids . . .




Thanks for checking in. Appreciate several PMs wishing a happy Thanksgiving. Certainly lots to be thankful for. Best wishes to all for now, and the upcoming holiday season. Keep riding if you're in a place with good weather. Always make sure to eat a little dessert first -- not a bad plan. Be well, ride safely!
