(The NX can do WAY MORE than the Strom...so no worries there)
We will be spending our first night in Monticello, Thursday night. That will give us Friday, Saturday and Sunday to ride the area. Monday, we will be rolling home. We will be tenting camping the whole thing.
Looking at your map, location 'D' is really nothing there, Torrey is a litle town, has some cute restaurants and souvenier stores, Last October it was very windy, they claim that that was not it's worst and wind is all year round.
HWY 12 to Boulder is just amazing, hope the boys like scenery, and the road is a fun comfortable 2 lane curvey asphalt. Once in boulder there's a restaurant on your left just before the Burr Trail that will take you thru Capitol Reef . The wife and I just loved this road, and again the landscape is just amazing. This road has been paved in the last few years. Once you get to the east side of the park, pavement stops !! The road looked maintained, don't know if they have started maintenance yet.
( The Notom Bullfrog Basin road may also be a county maintained road, this is the road you have going from C to D on the map, east side of the Park. )
I have some pictures of Torrey area, southern Capitol Reef if you would like to see where you'll be heading. I'll PM the Photobucket link to you if you'd like.
Have a fun and safe trip !!
