    Default Utah Riders

    I know there are some Utah riders out there. I saw 2 riders today in SLC on their WR250x's . Only a few more weeks of good weather riding so lets get together. Anybody for a ride?

    Cool. Lets see if we can get a ride together in the next few weeks. Where do you like to ride? Anybody up for the alpine loop? Colors are incredible right now in the canyon.

    I would not suggest the alpine loop, I usually hit that ride every other day.
    And it is PACKED right now, It's like a freaking geriactrics center up their.
    Old people everywhere just cloggin up the road to take pictures. And most of them can't stay on there own side of the road.

    Call to all SLC riders. The season is almost over. I have seen a few new WRX's over the past few weeks with new tags so I know there are a few riders out there. Lets get together.

    A buddy and I are going on a ride tomorrow (wednesday) Not sure What time, but if you wanna go call me and well do it. 801-696-3742

    We'll most likely go up the Alpine loop, I think It should be dried up by now.

    So, Plan on meeting at the mouth of American fork canyon at some point in time tomorrow if you want to go. Other wise, I think this will be our last week to ride I bet. last weekend it's already been to cold to enjoy a ride...

    Cool Is this thread dead?

    Hey folks......

    I'm new to the website. I just built up a DR650 Suzuki Motard to go with my DR650 Dual-Sport adventure bike. Guess I get to spread myself among two social classes now?

    Always interested in local rides. I'm up in the Clearfield area.

    It was almost spring-like yesterday so I took my new-to-me Tard out for a run. Stopped to take some shots of it at a local park. It's not heavily modded. Small tires, factory tail rack, custom seat, home-made aluminum skid plate, grip heaters and TUSK front shock seal boots.

    I'm needing an upper chain guard for my other DR650. Anyone have one they need to get rid of, or know of a place to get an aftermarket one? It's going to be about $50 to order it and the two mounting bolts for it from the local dealer and I'm just struggling to dump that much on a piece of plastic.

    Nice photos. I just converted my blue Yami to BLACK and I am waiting for the seat to be recovered. Good looking bike though. Keep in touch so when the weather breaks we can ride.

    Talking Ride Time

    I've got too much schoolwork to go anywhere this weekend, but for anyone else stuck in town, how about a slow ride around Antelope Island to stir the fluids and warm the tires?

    My wife and I will be at the parking lot outside the gate of Antelope island some time after 10:30 on Saturday morning. Look for a black/white DR650 "dirtbike" next to a black/white DR650 "motard". We'll take off to the island at 11 and stop at the food-shack before the lunch rush (do they even have one?).

    We're just meeting with some friends, going to enjoy some lunch up there at that little buffalo-burger place, and do a liesurely roll around the whole island. My wife hasn't ridden in months and we both want to kinda "test out" the bikes we just modded. Bring your friends, bring your spouse, bring both bikes or ride two-up. We look forward to seeing you there.

    SLC, Utah riders. Weather is looking good this week. Anybody want to ride? Canyon riding is still cool but if we can hook up for a ride I might be able to work something out.

    Me, the wife, and some friends are going to roll Antelope Island on Saturday if anyone wants to join us. It's going to be new riders, two-up riders, new bikes, cruisers, motards, out-of-place dirtbikes and folks that haven't ridden for a while so nothing too intense. Everyone is invited and ride whatever you have.



    We'll meet at the parking lot outside of Antelope Island at 11 AM (yes I want to sleep in) and we'll stop for lunch at the overpriced buffalo-burger joint on the island.



    Over lunch maybe we can put our heads together and set up some tentative other rides and gather some ideas.

    Anyone know anything about the kart track in American Fork area that is abandoned? It is between 1-15 and Utah Lake just west of the Pleasent Grove exit . I saw some guys were talking about it on here last spring and havent heard anything since.

    Where can we get a track put together in the SLC area?

    Default Ride Report

    On a sudden whim a friend and I ran up Ogden Canyon last night, then cut up the old snow basin road. It's still blocked off part-way up, and there is a LOT of gravel and pebbles on the road. I'm sure it'll be a better ride once it opens fully (June 1 I believe) and the passing traffic knocks some dirt off the asphalt. For now, it's hard to stick the corners when you hit that sand bar and find yourself sliding into the other lane.

    I took Old Basin a few weeks ago and hopped around the road block and kept going up the road. There was still alot of snow on the road. It probably is gone now but I had a blast messing around in the snow a little on the bike. We should try to get a ride together from sometime this weekend in the Ogden area If your interested.

    Hey, I'm rolling up to SLC for the WSB races next weekend @Miller Motorsports Park. Can anyone give me info on the event or SLC? I'm picking up a bike in Denver and will probably base camp out of Grand Junction, CO for 3 days, but plan to spend Sat night in SLC. Whatever biker friendly info you can pass along would be appreciated. Thanks, Frank Dallas, TX

    The event is awesome. I went last year. You will need to stay in the SLC area. Hotels are few and far between out by the track. Be careful if your riding here cuz next week is supposed to have some mild sprinkles each day. Enjoy the races. That track is incredible.

    Thanks for the info. I know it's SLC and not Vegas, but is there any sort of party/bar district?

    The forecast doesn't look too bad. Hopefully it'll be Utah sprinkles and not a Texas flood.

    Thanks again, Frank

    I seen a couple o' tards out there on sunday, and im sure there were a ton more (we didnt get to see alot of the peoples and rides there since we were doing corner marshalling/crash recovery), we just camped there since wednesday, but damn if i didnt see more bmw's ridden by 50+ yr olds (not there is anything wrong with that) than i did sport bikes, i thought the SBK attracted the sportbike/squid/hotties ... not so much this year i did see 2 umbrella girls that misplaced their tops.... and bras.... in the Haga pit tho... so that made up for it

    Nice... Yeah, I was amazed by how many BMW's were there... I think there were more than Ducs. Maybe the "unfortunate" umbrella girls were why the teams were so quick to shut their doors during the pit walk...

My wife hasn't ridden in months and we both want to kinda "test out" the bikes we just modded. Bring your friends, bring your spouse, bring both bikes or ride two-up. We look forward to seeing you there.
