I'm a newbie at this Moab thing, so I have question for you seasoned boys.  I need to know your thoughts about amount of fuel for the daily rides.  The new princess has a 2.1 gal tank, is that big enough.  I've thought about getting a bigger tank, 3.0 gal, and it would also be nice for the hills sometimes, but.......

I think the longest ride we did last year was maybe 100 miles. The 2-strokers had issues but nobody else really did. the long day we slabbed about 40 miles, rode around for maybe 20 and slabbed back. the two strokers trailered out to that site. Everything there is fairly close. There are some longer rides (White Rim) that are over 200 miles, but none of us last year were set up for that. My 530 is good for 120-150 and I dont think I ever went below half a tank on most days That being said, I have been pondering on bringing a bigger bike capable of that kind of a loop. A slower easy site seeing type day (white rim) might be a nice break between "Metal Masher and Poison Spider"  :evil

"Metal Masher and Poison Spider"  :evil

I don't think I like those names.  I'm more interested in "plastic bender" or maybe a harder one like, "plastic scratcher."

Or how about "Starbucks from hell!"  You know what I mean, coffee shop on a gravel road.

How long is the white rim trail?   I'm seeing 100 miles which I should be able to do on my 400.  I could pack an extra gallon too.

150 miles door to door from Moab. I think there is also off-shoots you can do, making it longer or shorter as well. I did in my truck nearly 25 yrs ago and the Scenery is awesome.

That being said, my 530 can do it with a little extra gas brought along, just in case.
