I bought a new toy

As you recall I spent some time riding adventure bikes this summer and I decided to go ahead and buy one for next summer (plus this fall, winter, and next spring!) I got a mini-adventure bike instead of the big Africa Twin I rented for that summer ride

The Husqvarna FE 450 on trails in the Book Cliffs

The Husky 450 is about 280 pounds lighter than the Africa Twin (250 vs 530). I can pick this bike up if it falls and it is a lot more maneuverable for the UTV and jeep trails that criss-cross the desert. I’ve spent a few weeks looking for a route to Moab that I can ride. The Kokopelli goes that way, but parts of it are above my ability. I have a dream trip of riding over to Moab one day and coming back the next. I also want to ride the White Rim Trail in Canyonlands NP. Maybe this year. Could be next year

Kitty is taking riding lessons. Vroom! Vroom!

I have been skunked a few times on my attempts to make loops out of 4×4 roads. The Husky is street legal and can go highway speeds so I can always hit the pave to get around, but I prefer dirt roads

This would make a great trials section, but it’s a no-go for the Husky and me. This is a 4×4 connector trail I tried to make a loop with
