    Just a little MOAB fun

    Bandoleros headed to Utah for a little Moab action. What a blast. Every days ride was a step up from the day before. Weather over all was good. Day one was UPS, LPS and Porcupine. Perfect warm up ride. Next was Amasa Back-RockStacker and Jackson trail. Killer Technical loop. Sat topped it off with part of green dot trail and blue dot to Portal. Now called the Mag Seven Trail system. Basically Gemini Bridges to Gold Bar to Portal and down. All I can say for the last day. WOW! That's what Moab is all about. Everything Moab has to offer is on that ride. Never ending technical and pucker factor.

    Nice pics, Steve. I wanna go back! Couldn't have ridden Moab with a better crew.
    The new DH trails that Bruce & I rode after you guys rolled out were the SHIZZLE. Literally world cup quality DH trails. Can't wait to check out the vids from this trip.

    You guys are a crazy bunch....

    Thanks for the pictures and the ride report.
    I lost the urge to jump off of things many years ago but to watch you guys do it sort of brings that back again....but my lanky body isn't very forgiving to mistakes not like when I was 5' 4" tall and 95 pounds.

    Bandoleros Everywhere we Looked!

    Went to Moab this weekend with my wife Kristin. We were supposed to meet up with some friends of friends from Salt Lake but weren't able to ride with them until our last day. Instead, everywhere we went we kept running into Bandoleros . Had a great time, some "ok" Mesican food, and some great company. Thanks guys for making our trip extra rad and thanks Ramon for getting me back to my truck at the top of Porcupine . TJ & Bruce, really sorry we took off from breakfast so fast and couldn't shuttle you guys but the Sovereign ride we ended up doing with the crew from Salt Lake really topped off our trip. I see why that one's a classic, unfortunately it looks like everyone else with a bike sees the same thing . I think I about flew over a few people on the back down .

    So Kristin & I did Slick Rock Friday PM, Amasa Back/Jackson Saturday AM, Porcupine Saturday PM, and Sovereign Sunday AM. Didn't think Kristin would be up for the exposure on Jackson but all that DH riding at Pajarito made it no problem. Here's a few pics from our tour (including a couple motos we met at the top of Porcupine).

    Awesome pics!

    I was just down there but my back blew out while I was in Sedona so I couldn't ride Moab on the way home :-/

    Do you have any vid of those big drops?

    Man, Ramon was on fire up there. He was hitting BIG stuff every day.
    Great pics, Aaron. I still think about our trip everday. It was the most fun I've had in Moab, ever.

    No kidding. I've got a big bruise on my chest from slamming slickrock on Mag7/blue-dot when my front tire slid out. I need to compile a helmet cam vid of the 5-6 crashes I had throughout the weekend.
