Moab March 25-28

I'll be traveling there on Sunday the 23rd and returning on the 29th. I'll be pulling a travel trailer out near White Wash and camping there the whole time. I'll have my 11 yr old son with me.

We'll be riding the dunes and trails on the north side of Moab.

More details coming.

Anyone else interested?

White wash is an area that we really need to be more active about. It is currently on the BLM chopping block

Always interested. I'm going to try to make a trip over in March. I won't have my March Schedule until late Feb.

Eeeek! I need to get out there more in case that happens.

Would love to join you Paul but will be in Rabbit Valley around those times. Was great to see you and your son last Sunday!

Off topic, but following up on the closure concerns....if the Canyonlands National Monument is created with the boundaries as the proponents desired, some of the southern most trails at WW will be lost. E.G. Dead Cow Loop and some others.

See the thread about Greater Canyonlands National Monument for more details.

Now...back to your regularly scheduled thread.

BTW, I should have a big green bike with a sand paddle rear out there if you want to take it for a spin.

So I got the new kickstart shaft in recently and went to install it and discovered that the right side engine cover is also cracked where the shaft goes into it. So far I've destroyed $400 worth of parts trying to kickstart it.

Yes! Yes I do want to rip around on that bitch..as long as there is a good hill to point it down and get it going, or can u rig up an e-start? J/k..the 500's I had ridden in the past weren't overly bad, but as with any bike, there is a certain technique to it!

I'll be in Moab with my family, wife and 2 boys, during the boys spring break at that time. Thinking of camping off of 313, so will be near. Maybe we can make run down dubinky for a visit, though I don't know what the range of the boys bikes (crf150 and yz125). We've been to the gyser and back from the dunes, that's at least 40 miles round trip I think. My wife rides the XR200 super tanker and always has gas to spare.... I'll look into it and be in touch.

How old are your boys? We'll definitely have to meet up for a ride.

15 and 17, but my wife says she lives with a bunch of 10 year olds. I think that is a typical response, or I hope it is.
