Moab, Utah...A wet dream of a riding area. It is the location of our first ThumperTalk Union/Reunion. Lot's of blue, lots of brew and grand ole time for everyone.

At least that is my plan.

Moab is the perfect blend of rock (check out slickrock trail), dirt, sand, scenery and hot weather. If you're used to tight eastern woods, this will be a spectactular change. Things can still get twisty and tight but lots of open space in between to crank on the throttle. Moab proves how incredibly durable these steel horses really are!

Harvey,
Moab is a very small town in the eastern Utah canyon lands. There are three national parks there – Canyonlands, Arches and Dead Horse Point. Other than a few hotels, restaurants, and bicycle shops it’s all rock and sand! Go for it! It has become a ‘Meca’ for mountain bikers once they found that they too are allowed on the Motorcycle Trails.

Check out some of the pictures on the TTalk WR Pictures page. Here are some of the Moab captions.

-Tim from Utah Moto Adventures
-Chris on SlickRock
-Kerry T at it again
-Now THIS is why we always go to Southern Utah to Ride!
-Some great pics of Doug riding in Moab

Moab offers an incredible riding vacation! There are hundreds of miles of trails and dirt roads where bikes are WELCOME (believe it or not!). The scenery will blow you away! There might not be another place in the lower-48 that is farther from Alabama! The costs aren't bad and there will be several experienced guys there to help you out. Hope to see you there!

Dont listen to Kevin he doesnt know what he's talking about, probably too many knocks on the head, I told him to stop wearing that toilet paper and duct tape helmet. Moab is that brown mushy stuff that builds up in the bottom of your tool box when too many diff petroleum products spill out and you neglect to clean it up, it seems to take on its own life form after awhile leaking out on to the garage floor and all. :) :D

Pie Man,
I always eagerly wait for your responses as they are quite genuine. My laughter is always followed with my saying, "Pie Man, you are a nut!!", and then I laugh some more.
My problem isn't from my toilet paper helmet, it is from the time I went in to see the Doc w/ severe constipation. Something happened to my chart and they gave me a labotomy instead, "Those Bastards!!"

If I only had half a brain, I could accomplish great things!
