Strange request, for utah area inmates, need a little help

I posted about this earlier somewhat. My wife and I have our 10yr anniv this year and plan on spending it in the utah\moab area. Arches, zion, and would even like to cruise to the grand canyon if time allows.

While there we want to see spend some time in town but views and quiet time are really what we are after. We have looked at renting a bike for the trip but it is stupid expensive!

My problem is that I have $750 in airfair that if I dont use I will loose it. So I have considered driving my truck with my bike in the back out to the area and leaving it and flying home. Then the next week flying back with my wife and getting the truck and bike and drive\ride where we want and drive back home. We will have seven days.

What I need is a safe place to park the truck for a week or so and a good idea of the best places to ride two up with some minor hiking and the best views.

If I cant work this out we will just fly out there and rent a car and do it I guess. I know this is a strange request but it doesnt hurt to ask I guess.

Btw, my bike is a f800gs we will be riding on two up. So trails will need to be easy enough with her on the back.

Gotta be some motorcycle rental places around LV that have an adventure bike in their stable. Sounds like you're going to lot of trouble and making a lot of work for yourself just to burn a freebie plane ticket….
