    MAXX, you can lead Purple out on this typical warm up ride not far of camp. Being more rock than sand it might remind Purple of those cobblestone London streets from his currier days.

    Now Purple, you may have noticed Moab at places has painted white lines we are supposed to follow.
    However in Moab they are not usually quite like this one from Sedona, Arizona.


    In Moab the white line trails are a lot longer.

    See? Sedona's White Line is just a tiny thing, barely a couple hundred yards long.

    We (me and the Mrs) went to Crete a few years ago, during the visit, we went on a “Jeep Safari”. The guys running it, loaded 5 others in the back of an “enclosed” jeep type vehicle, leaving myself and my wife, with two non-driving passengers in the “Suzuki” type open thing. Just the two vehicles — one driven by someone who does this every day of the week, the other driven by someone who’d not even had his driving licence looked at

    We trundled off, and to the outfits credit, the “thing” I was in was pretty tight mechanically. Being four up, I bounced the tranny a few times, but that was about it as far as the “jeep” went. But the point here, is that I’m scared of heights. So there I am, in an unfamiliar vehicle, steering wheel on the wrong side, making my way up the side of a mountain, with a drop of 500ft six feet away, boulder hopping, with three people’s lives depending on my (and I use the term loosely), “skill”

    To say I was “slightly clenched” would be an understatement — I could have cracked walnuts …..

    By comparison, one up, on a TW, really does become a “piece of cake” — I know the bike, my own capabilities - and if I fuck it up, I have only myself to answer for

    So — yeah — I hate heights as well — and I’ll probably end up hating sand — but for me, Moab with you guys is on my bucket list ……

    San Rafael was really nice this year but there is just something about the slick rock of Moab that draws us back.
    Will be fun to share chasing the white lines with first time visitors.
    Purple is going to love this

    Just to wet everybody's appetite for Moab.

    I was on Gemini Bridges Rd this morning. I can't believe that it is August 1st and the temperature was about 68 degrees during my ride.

    I love the TW200 for this trip. Usually I am in a group and ride a DRZ400S. But prefer the TW200 when riding solo.

    Good thing you got that ride in before late afternoon/early evening. I wouldn't even want to wait for a milk shake at Milts Burgers with them thar temperatures.

    You the only one our riding? See any other riders? Can't be many this time of year. Looks smokey like everywhere out west.

    I am riding solo and did not see any other riders. I did see a few Jeeps on the trails, though.
    There is a haze/smoke around Moab which I have never seen before---I think it might be from all the fires.
