hey Scott,

I've the van setup so I can carry a bike inside, one on the back bumper and then upto 3 on the trailer.
For this particular trip we were leaving after work Thursday (i.e. getting there late) so I chose to use the trailer - makes it easier when we arrive because my bed and everything was already made in the back of the van.. I just crawled back under the duvet and went to sleep

Paul did get video of my flip. I have the file.. I just need to find some time to do a fun mix with it.
It wasn't bad; but relatively it was the worst crash I've had in years.

great images Geek - glad you had an overall good time - when you mentioned the warning on your map and then you said you had flipped somewhere I was thinking the bicycle trail (blue stripe) on Moab Rim - glad it wasn't there cuz you might not be doing any more posting . . .

hope you and the bike are on the mend.

Hey Geek,

Looks like you found a nice 2WD camp spot, is that at the trailhead?

nice pics

Did you guys do any night riding to test the dual headlights? Night riding in the desert is hard to beat.
