Name: Luke Metzger
Position: Product Development Manager
Where: Dirt Biking trip in Moab, Utah. Sovereign Trail System.
Best time: Spring or fall
Brief summary: This a long and difficult trail through some of Moab’s most scenic areas. The trail can take the better part of a day to complete on a motorcycle, but provides a handful of exits points if you want to turn back early. Expect to encounter mountain bikes and be careful of steep exposure along tire width sections of trail. I have done damage on this trail including puncturing the crank case cover of my motorcycle and effectively destroying my radiators.
What to bring:
• GPS is a must
• Extra Water
• Extra Gas
• Early and late season adventurers should bring extra warm weather gear
Favorite Klymit Gear for dirt biking trip:Gear Duffel 65, Stash 18, Splash 25
I always pack my gear in a Klymit Gear Duffel. I love that this bag can carry most of my motorcycle gear and keep it protected in the back of the truck. I typically ride with a Stash 18. The bag is comfortable and not too bulky. I can fit all my gear and extra water in the bag with ease. If the weather is less than ideal, I typically take a Splash 25 to protect my gear when I ride.
