    Moving to Salt Lake City

    Moving to SLC first of September. What are the first day trips I should take? Doing 350-500 in a day would not scare me.

    Just about any roads which are red, green or blue on the state map are good roads to check out. Only a small handful of state routes might be dirt or poor shape, even then, I been on them with a street bike and tires.

    When I moved to SLC back in the 80's, I just started around the local area and progress further and further every trip out. Seen interesting side roads and made it a point to investigate when time allowed. Many and most of the paved road I have hit many times and still enjoy the ride. I also been on most of the major dirt roads within the state, great scenery for sure in the state.

    So far this year, I got over 16k on the bikes and only been out of the state twice. Just haven't felt the need to travel further. I will admit most of my rides are day runs, long day, but still completed in 1 day.

    ALL of it:)

    Utah has the most scenic byways of just about all the states, period. Any direction gets you good stuff. Some of my favorites; US12 from Bryce to Capital Reef NPs., Moab US191S and back W. through SE Utah. Cedar Breaks NMon. and Zion NP.. Arches and Canyonlands NPs(Moab again). You just cannot go wrong in that state. Vernal and Flaming Gorge and Dinosaurs everywhere in NE Utah. Nice. Great Basin NP(our newest NP) to your West near Nevada. Its just a WOW state. Only downside is BMW closed its doors in SLC. Randy

    Wifey already there and has visited a BMW dealer. So perhaps there were 2 dealers? I am looking forward to hitting all the national parks.
