Arches is right next to Moab. On a Street Bike it is worth driving thru that. Also HWY6 is a curvey twisty road that goes up thru the mountains and over Soldier Summit and then down Spanish Fork Canyon just south of Provo. It is worth the detour to avoid that southern piece of I-15 from Cedar City to Provo. You'll wear a flat on your tire and run out of gas.
I might have to make that a weekend trip. By the time we exit Zion's (assuming we have time to stop) it will be a B-line straight home, unfortunately.
I'm only about 4-5 hours from that part of Utah, so that's a doable weekend warrior event.

I drive every year (for the past 17 at least) thru that part of Utah up to Idaho Falls. We don't even need a map or GPS any more... Unfortunately it is in a mini-van but I try to act like I am in a F1 car thru the canyons...
Sure looks like a good trip! I'd never make it... What happens to me is I get tired and pissy from being on the road and then when I make it to Reno I would end up getting drunk that evening then the next day I would cut across to Sacramento instead of heading North etc
I agree. I think it is a long way with only one tank of fuel. Good luck on your trip. Looks like a winner. Take as much time as you can get, and don't rush it. If I have learned anything over the course of many trips it's to shorten the mileage each day and actually see something. It sucks when you have to rush to meet a self imposed distance deadline.
After many years and many dreams I have realized my goal of riding in all 50 states!
Now the rest of the world!

That's the one. The clerk/owner is really into motorbikes too, just look at his posters inside. Make sure to conversate with him, he'll give a heads up of conditions and anything you might need to know for the road. Oh and get the premium gas.
I think it doesn't get as pumped as much as the 92. Its locked and when I asked for it they gave me a funny look, then I realized it might be old gas because my bike vibrated more than usual til the next fill-up.
