Awesome trip, guys. And a first-rate ride tale.

Where are we going and why am I in this handbasket?

I agree, it was a great ride. I would like to see the part of the white rim trail we missed due to darkness sometime. So many places to ride out there, though congress may close 9.5 million acres this week in Utah alone. Let's hope they don't.

I'm about out of superlatives so I'll just say thanks for taking everyone along, it was almost like being there.... but not quite.

Kenny, hope you're healing up, I've got a few more gaps and water crossings that need testing before too long.

Great report fellas. Man, kidney stones, counted 5 tweaked ribs between two guys, deep lacerations, diesel fuel in a gas tank (thought that nozzle looked a little big)....fun times for all.

What an amazing RR. I have been out looking at bikes with those funny tires this past week and this report may have sealed my fate.

Next time how about taking Marty and showing him how a real RR is done, you know, one with pictures!

Thanks for taking the time to share the videos, pictures, and commentary.

ps. Bill, also as exciting as another dip you and I shared on occasion!

George, my memory's a little fuzzy, did we have a rain race I'm forgetting?

I just got it. grin

Ah yes, the dip. Exciting is an understatement. Every lap I'd look down there and go, "am I gonna make it this time?"

One particularly vivid memory; somehow I'd gotten side-by-side with Brian at the bottom and for some stupid reason looked over (as if that might solve the problem). He was looking back at me smiling. grin

Getting a dual sport will change your life, hope you do. And hope we can catch up one of these days and do some riding.
