I'll field this for Navynuke in case you're still wondering. That pic was taken from the visitor center lot and that's about as close as you can get on a bike (legally). Was there last month but there's usually folks there taking pictures, making it difficult to find a window to get a solo...
Sure, definitely down for a ride but I'll be loaded down with gear and still have the stock Battlewings on my bike, so no gnarly stuff for me.
I've never been through that area but have been studying up for the last eight months in anticipation for the trip.
Wanna at least do Shafer trail...
Yep, The View campground. Except that's in Monument valley which is on Navajo land.
Valley of the Gods north of there is BLM land, so it's free. Two different places, neither of which sell beer unfortunately.
Great little town with awesome nearby riding as mentioned. Do yourself a favor and camp at Toad Rock motorcycle campground about 25 minutes north in Balfour. Excellent place to base out of for a few days.
I'll be arriving in Moab on 4/30 and be there all week. Only concrete plans are Arches campground that night and 3step hideaway on May 1. Always wanted to camp in Valley of the Gods, probably May 2. Interested in day rides though.
+1 For 2wheel dyno works near Seattle. I'm booked in there next week to get my '17 flashed. Talked to them over the phone and he mentioned they've had a number of Canadian riders bring their bikes in for the flash. I like to support local businesses too.:)
Added the SWMotech crash bars last night. Only a little cursing to get any purchase on the engine bolt holes and only needed two beers. Today, I'm tackling the Touratech pannier racks. Looks straight forward, but thankfully I've got a fee beers still in the fridge. :cool:
