Just spent a week riding around Moab. Chicken Corners, Hurrah Pass, Gemini Bridges, Schafet Trail, Potash Road, Kane Creek, White Rim Trail. The XR performed flawlessly - about 600 miles for the week, or about 100 per day. Took a beating each day and never had an issue. Love the Edelbrock carb - starts easy and never an issue to restart after dropped. Could not have imagined the stock carb on this trip. Loading the bike for the daily trips was easy - wolfman tank bag and tail bag plus fender bag with tire tools and spare tube. Would have liked a bigger tank bag. Thought I would need extra gas for the White Rim Trail ride so I strapped a 2 gallon can to the back - never even touched reserve so it was not needed. Amazingly the can did not leak a drop after taking a beating for over 100 miles. Put on D606's right before the trip. Knew I would be doing some asphalt so I wanted something more road friendly - replaced the Kenda Trackmasters. They were great on the asphalt (quiet and stable) and got the job done in the dirt - including loose rock and sand. Very happy with them. If you have never done Moab do yourself a favor and put it on your list. The White Rim Trail is the ultimate dual sport ride - incredible scenery and some challenging parts that keep it intersting. Enjoy the pics!
