Our 2018 Lockhart Basin Ride was the hardest motorcycle ride I have ever done in my life! This ride was is 75 miles of dirt and rocks, near Moab Utah. There were steep, near impossible climbs and rocky narrow trails along the upper edge of deep canyons. I have done this ride before and it was never easy, but this time the terrain was exceptionally difficult to navigate on my KTM 690. Trails change with weather and wear and this one was near impassable in places for our May 2018 ride. Our buddy broke the frame on his motorcycle in the middle of the ride. We strapped it back together enough to finish the ride, but the bike is history.
Lockhart canyon is a famous trail that every dual sport motorcycle rider should do; but, go with friends. Have 2 or 3 buddies strong enough to lift and push because some places could be just too step to ride without help.
This year was the second time I have done it. Check out the short GoPro clip to see why I say it was the hardest motorcycle ride I have ever done in my life.
