Yesterday's ride

I had a couple days off work and the snow wasn't worth skiing so I headed down to Moab. I rode the White Rim Trail through Canyonlands. It was 32deg when I left the hotel and the ride was a bit over 150 miles round trip.

I only saw 4 other people on the trail. A jeep and a group of 3 bikes. When I came up on the bikes there were working on one of them. I pulled in to see if they needed any help and they were very glad I did. It was a group of a Husaberg a KTM and Suzuki DRZ400.

The DRZ had a flat tire and they didn't have the right tools to take the wheel off. Luckily for them I appeared on my DRZ with all the tools. They were extremely grateful and called me a Christmas miracle. That was probably accurate since there wasn't another person around for about 60 miles.
