    This was our 1st year for organizing a group ride with the Western State riders (WW Raw 2016) and I think we had a great success. 21 people and 13 bikes showed up for 4 days of riding. Weather was great as we lucked out between weather front that moved through. I stayed on for a 5th day of riding which was hit with rain so I did some site see from the comfort of my Chevy. I managed to bust up my steering again this year but was able to continue to ride. We had several broken axles, some plastic damage and 3 rubber side up conditions. All in all everyone had a blast and were talking about 2017's ride already. Moab has away of putting stress on ones bike. Hope you enjoy the pics.

    Traffic was bumper to bumper getting to Moab, lol........

    Riding 'Hells Gate' Love this obstacle, I've seen some bad rollover on this climb.

    We rode Hells Revenge 2X, Friday evening and then again on Sunday as some travelers weren't in early enough to ride on Friday. In my opinion Hells Revenge is one of the funniest intermediate trails to ride in Moab.

    Saturday we headed out to 7 Mile Rim & 3-D Canyon. Utah past a new law this year that allows UTVs to drive on all road except Interstate Hyway as long as you're plated from your state. Very Cool!!!!!

    This arch went through the mountain, it was so dark inside it almost blinded you from the light shining in from the other side, very cool.

    This was a shot across to Arches National Park, around 20+ miles away.....

    My camera quit working about mid-morning on this day, started working again just fine the next day. We rode 'Fins and Things' and then hit 'Hells Revenge' again on the way out as not everyone rode Hells on the 1st night there.

    The last day I took the last 2 remaining riders up 'Kane's Creek' real fun trail until you get towards the end and you hit 'Hamburger Hill'. Neither bikes wanted to try out HH which was fine.
