    Nailed it! Hahaha

    Attempted to Powdercoat my TW "Moab Red Clay". I tried to Powdercoat my pants and boots the same color.





    the Powdercoat even stuck to the Sprocket Specialists aluminum 60T sprocket. Rear rim seems to be nicely coated!

    Admiral sure know how to get the most out of a TW outing.
    While Kris is too modest to point out the gnarly details you should know that he aerial antics occurred on a rather steep continous slick rock surface on Hell’s Revenge with no soft landing. The potential for bike and rider to grind and slide further down the sandstone slope is very real.

    Fred "While Kris is too modest to point". Yeah, I'll be included in the crash compilation video so folks can "feel" the effects. Oh, and you made the cut and are included in the video too!


    Moab 17 Day 1 Sovereign ATV trail section

    First trail ride of Moab 17 for the TW group. We started this section with 9 and 4 would peel off when we started the next section-Copper Ridge Jeep Trail and Slickrock. This part of the Sovereign ATV Loop is a good introduction to what you can expect for most of the Moab trails.



    Even on this trail, you'll get the "sand experience"!

    Moab 17 Day 1 Copper Ridge Slickrock

    On this section, we ride a part of the Copper Ridge Jeep Trail and rejoin the shared Sovereign Loop on the Slickrock. We ride Fallen Peace Officer trail after this section.



    GHDave, Plumbstraight, Stig, and Don all taking a break just before we drop into a wash.

    One with me before the soreness facial expressions set in at days end


    Moab has some awesome views. The trails get us close enough to see them.

    Moab 17 Day 1 Fallen Peace Officer Trail

    First time on the Falle Peace Officer trail. Had some pretty neat sections. We ended this part of the ride out at the trailhead at U.S. Highway 191. Ah, but our day is not done so stayed tuned.

    Captured the Admiral somewhere near something or other Abyss on The SlickRock Trail where pictures just don’t convey the real experience...one noses around blind corners while sidehilling on smoothly inclined trackless rock, then commit to uphill or downhill switchbacks. Awesome riding!


    Note the proper elbows out, weight forward attack stance, intuitive body english initiating turn-in for the upcoming right turn despite the minimal tire contact? I think he even had his eyes open this time.

    Moab 17 Day 1 Tusher Tunnel to Determination Towers

    After lunch, GHDave, Don, Stig, and myself contined our ride. Unfortunately, my live action camera wasn't functioning properly so I missed recording us riding the Mashed Potatoe trail near Hidden Canyon Rim trail.

    At the Mashed Potatoes/Hidden Canyon Rim trail jct, I noticed someone placed a rock which looked like a dorsal fin and made this rock look like a shark. Look carefully and have an imagination.



    After we linked back up on Blue Hills road, GHDave and Don decided to return to camp but Stig wanted to ride more trails. I had a couple trails we've not ridden in the past so off we went.


    We ride some of the 3-D Jeep Trails from Tusher Tunnel up Tusher Wash with a quick jaunt into Tusher Canyon. We then junction at the Lower M&M (Monitor & Merrimac) Trail near Determination Towers. I'll finish Day 1 Video with the Lower M&M up next.


    We turned up and rode the dead-end Tusher Wash Canyon trail. It was pretty cool up yonder.



    Awesome views of the canyon walls at the end of the canyon


    Looks like an elephant laying on it's stomach with it's legs out in front.


    Contrasting desert canyon colors


    I think he's gonna get his kickstand fixed after this ride.


    Stig went hiking about and I was hoping he would find some skeletal remains from a drug running airplane crash but I was foiled in my hopes so we continued on.


    We ride back down the Tusher Canyon and up Tusher wash and take a break not far from Determination Towers
