Rabbit Valley

Carpenter Mike, Kathy, Jen, and I met up with Greg in Rabbit Valley for 2 days of riding. Nice to be here while it is snowing in northern Utah. Spent the night in Fruita, CO. in a motel.

Carpenter Mike did make it back in one piece, but just barely. Ask him about the train tracks...

You can't ride a motorcycle from Rabbit Valley to Fruita, on the Kokopelli trail.

4 days in Moab

Rode Steelbender with Carpenter Mike and Chainsaw Mike as well as Fred. The next day we rode White Rim trail, less Fred. Clark joined me on Fins and Things while Mike pedaled and Mike rested. The last day Mike. Mike, and myself, rode up Long Canyon and looped back through Gemini Bridges.

We met Grant Else ( http://www.grantelse.blogspot.com/ ) who was camped out on the White Rim, while on his way from British Columbia to Central America. Grant was riding a Suzuki Vstrom 1000.

On the same trail, we also met Rob and Nancy. They had been on their bikes for about 6 weeks, after leaving Portland, Maine. During that time, they had managed to get married while in California. They were working their way back home when we saw them. Nancy and Rob are the proprietors of Hugo's restaurant in Portland ( http://www.hugos.net/ ). Rob was riding a Triumph Tiger and Nancy was on a BMW 650.
