I can say from just coming back from riding in Moab, its a lot harder than you are going to except, there are some sections of uber deep sand. the stuff we all love, like powered sand, very fine stuff.

Did you go up in Lockhart? That's really the only section I'd be concerned about. Jeff will go around that for sure, as he'll be on a dyna dirt bike and it won't have the clearance for Lockhart.

Just a word of caution, I have done the majority of the Utah BDR and can tell you that it is just plain hard. Do not attempt it unless you have a very capable dual sport, adventure bikes are a no go. You will face long days of brutal sand and loose rocky sections. The trail WILL take a toll on your body so make sure that you prepare for it and don't just show up and expect to cruise through it. Be sure to have full knobby tires mounted, you will regret trying it with anything less. That being said you will see some incredible sites that you will never forget.

Glen,
Thanks for the "heads up" on the UTBDR. I'm setting up my 690 for the adventure. Have you did the Lockhart Basin area? I know it will be an awesome ride, but I don't need to break me or the bike for the sake of one section!

Yes we did Lockhart there are some steep uphill/downhill sections that you are just crawling thru. I was on my Husky 610 and didn't have a lot of trouble, the guy on the Triumph Scrambler not so much.

Yes we did a part of it, came up to very deep powdery sand, at that point we turned around.
