I just hope it isn't full up when I finally get there.

Bringing the trusty DR out there Russ ?

Yea, I predict this will be the "must-do" of ADV.

I'd like to. Probably have to break down and get a bigger tank.

What's the fuel situation like in the area?? Will there be fuel at the Hideaway?

Frank,
Thanks for your enthusiasm!!......Good Idea to post in vendors!
We are working on a date for the Grand opening.....will announce it soon, here and in vendors also!
3 Step is on the TAT in eastern UT....we are 2 miles west of the CO line!........45 miles south east of Moab.
The UTBDR runs just north of us a few miles!
Sure Hope you can make it out! Look forward to meeting you!
Scott

Can you point me in the direction of the Ebay fuel pump? Not sure where to search on the site.

Thank you,

It's real tricky to do----the only thing you'll need extra is a real short piece of fuel line and maybe a couple hose clamps--you'll see what I mean if you try it.
Got this HighFlow fuel pump off ebay - it says it's for the WRR/X, so I'm hoping it will work. It comes with the fuel line, filter, hose clamps and an o-ring. I've got an '08 with the original fuel pump, and plan to swap mine out with the new one, and carry my old one (that still seems to work...) as a spare. I figure for $34, it's definitely worth a try.

Enjoying another BigDog RR!

It was cool meeting you guys on Ophir Pass......you'll see us at the 3 Step before long. I'm thinking this could be a great overnight loop from Moab, over the LaSals to 3 Step, and back up thru Lockhart to Moab.

Exactly my thinking. And then some.

Scott, maybe make arrangements to accept shipped bikes from adv riders, maybe even you and Mark develop some awesome routes for guys that want them to ride and you got a real hit here. You could offer the whole enchilada here.
