I've ridden the Blue Ridge Pkwy, the Dragon, Texas Hill country, the Sierras and the Trinity Alps of NorCal, all over AZ, CO, NM, WY, etc. I've even done the real Alps three times. I tell you that so you'll have a sense that I know what I'm talking about when I say that riding the Escalante Grand Staircase is just about the best motorcycling you can do in America. If you haven't been you need to make the effort to get out there ASAP. Guaranteed, you will never forget your first run across the Staircase. The only thing I'd mention is that you should go east out of Torrey on Hwy 20 and ride it all the way to Hanksville. That's a spectacular part of the ride too as is continuing south to Mexican Hat (just dont do that in the middle of summer!).
