Beautiful country. Looks a lot like some of the trails we have here in Utah. I was looking into that rack you have on the back and wondering if you liked it? Looked like it might get in the way if you were at the dunes. Also does that rack have a flag mount build in?

Sorry it took so long to reply.

I can't remember where I bought the rack, but I read about it on these forums somewhere (thinking I paid about $100-$130). I used to just wear a backpack to store food, water, rainsuit, etc., but since going on longer trips, I needed to take a gas can with me. If it wasn't for that, I probably wouldn't have it on there. The top part of the rack will move fore and aft a little with some force, which then rubs on the fender and vibrates. No, it doesn't have a flag mount, but it doesn't interfere with the stock one. Overall though, I like it.

That's the trail from Taylor Park to Aspen, my second favorite trail from this year.


It's not as bad as it looks, you weave around the big boulders. It was, however, the hardest part of the trail and the group behind us had to turn around. That part of the trail has you riding in the stream for about an 1/8 mile, and that is where you exit the stream. There were still some good size boulders, that's where the independant rear comes in handy.

Here's another pic of the same part on our way back, but from the stream looking up to where I took the first pic.

I kill my engine all the time on the technical stuff, even when I had the 13 tooth on it.

I would like to mountain bike those trails to get the whole experience, with an ATV the noise drowns out the peacefulness of it all. On the other hand, you can see in a couple of days what would take a week on a bike.

On a side note, I've noticed alot of mountain bikers look at me like I'm the scum of the Earth, even though I always slow way down when passing to minimize dust. Anyone else notice this.
