Took the HP2 to stretch its legs and put it through the paces on the White Rim Trail in Canyonlands National Park in Utah over the weekend.

What a great trail. The weather was perfect that day as well. I would highly recommend the trail.

I was able to do it on a single tank of gas. We started at 8:30 am and finished around 5:00 pm. My friend and his father rode a couple of Honda XRs

Wow - I bet that ride was a blast on the HP2. I did it years ago in a 4X4 and have ridden all over Moab on a mountain bike in the 90s - amazing place. I love to see pics of these bikes being used and not sitting in a garage all polished. My HP2 is rarely clean.

Keep the pics of your travels coming.

is that tank on the back, plumbed directly in to your tank?
is it an Acerbis tank?
what war your range with it?

Ah, I hadn't noticed the rear tank at first. That explains how you were able to do that ride without a refill! Looks like a Wunderlich tank and rear rack.

Nice pics! I miss canyon country riding. I used to live in New Mexico ... now in LA. Ah well.

One recommendation: go easy on the whoops if the rear tank is full. The rear tubular frame isn't too strong, and I've heard about breaks just forward of the mount points due to Wunderlich rack + weight + "spirited offroad riding." by space

Yes, it's an Acerbis tank but I don't have it plumbed into the main tank. Like I said, I was able to do the 100 mile trail on a single tank of gas without dipping into the Acerbis tank. I've also got a couple litre MSR fuel bottles in a pair of equipment tubes. I like the scalable factor of being able to remove the extra fuel options depending on my need.

So, needless to say, I had more than enough fuel for that particular trip. But as the saying goes, "Better to have, and not need, than to need, and not have."

Even the XRs were able to do it on one tank.

Thanks for the tip about the rear subframe. I try to keep the weight down on the rear as much as possible. Most of what I carried on there was extra clothing and such. But when I have the soft luggage on I definitely have to be mindful of the weight. by r083rt

Just bought some GS Pro boots. These are actually the first motorcycle boots I've owned despite riding for a few years.

I've only taken them for a short ride today but they feel very comfortable. I'll be sure to post up my thoughts as I continue to ride in them.

Had to adjust the shift lever up to accommodate the extra bulk and less flexibility but I can shift with relative ease now.

Just fitted a pair of 26mm bar risers from Touratech last night.

Being 6' 4", they provide just enough rise on the bars to keep me from being hunched over while still being able to retain the "attack" posture when riding while standing.

All in all another top shelf product from Touratech.

I'm graduating college next week and looking forward to the start of my first summer with the HP2!
