Steve and I took off on a Thursday evening and bolted for the Bullfrog Marina at Lake Powell. We stopped in Hanksville for a burger at the famous Blondies. Yum! We headed for Lake Powell where I had a couple rooms reserved and from there we had planned on riding the Burr Trail. We got […]
One of my good buddies Mark drove a customers truck (who had an unfortunate accident) down from Salt Lake and that is how this day started. He needed to ride Ray’s bike home for us and we decided to reward him with some riding in Moab. The customer (Tony) crashed on the Shafer trail, so […]
Tony made the trek out from Houston, Texas to take a motorcycle adventure ride in the backcountry of Utah. We spent a couple months getting him prepared and geared up for the trip. Once he arrived we spent some more time getting his bike loaded and inspecting his gear. We visited the local watering hole […]
Memorial Day was the perfect opportunity for a father and son ride down to New Mexico. The plan was to stop over at my sisters house in Castle Rock, Colorado on the way home too. We took off on Thursday afternoon and rode down to Monticello, Utah where we camped. It rained a little bit […]

He finds himself swimming along with his bike, then he loses his grip on the bike and it is washed away. The video was taken in September 2013 during the […]
Cyril Despres decided to leave KTM and join Yamaha after riding for Team KTM for the last 12 years. He is the reigning Dakar motorcycle winner, coming in first in the 2013 rally. He has won the race 5 times and finished in the top 3, five additional times, with 3 of those times finishing […]
Glacier National Park is an excellent place to ride a motorcycle. We came through it in the summer of 2013 on our way back from Canada and the Northwest Territories. We crossed the border at Chief Mountain, which was a small crossing and made things easy. We had ridden through Banff National Park the day […]
Cool bike! Have you seen the movie yet? How do you think the bike would do for adventure motorcycle touring? It has some serious exhaust pipes and big tires! Gru has the minions to keep him company as well.
