What a great ride. We started out in Southern Utah (St. George) and made this loop. The North Rim is quite unique and so very different from the viewpoints on the south rim. The ride to the canyon was pleasant but we missed the weather forecast. We weren't as prepared as expected so we had to do the "dumb tourist" thing and buy jackets in the gift store (ouch). On the map the North Rim is near the Toroweep overlook, having been to Toroweep often (not a motorcycle trip) we assumed the climate would be similar. Boy were we wrong. Toroweep is in the desert and aprox 4200 ft elevation. The North Rim is considerably higher than that. So please plan ahead. Leather, leather, leather... Enjoy the trip and amazing views! Wade
