    Was invited on an overnighter at Little Sahara near Eureka, Utah. Figured it was the perfect opportunity to try my hand at Moto camping. 137 miles round trip plus miles riding the dunes. So first campout and longest ride on the new TW. The ride out and back was a bit cold but still fun.

    I am amazed at how well it performed on the dunes. I totally expected it would just sink at first sign of deep sand. It didn’t. I climbed all over the dunes and had a blast. This was my first time on the dunes. I am hooked now!!!

    And I only dropped it once! 🙂

    The bike did great traveling. Averaged 60-65 pretty much the entire way. It seems happiest around 60.

    Lovin’ the T-Dub life! 🙂

    Are you running stock gearing? My stock 2017 will top out @ 60ish. Really likes to be around 45 though

    Nice! Utah is a beautiful state. Keep an eye on your oil if you run a lot at those speeds.

    Re-post of mysteriously deleted post from yesterday, though it would look better larger.
