We went to Idaho Springs in search of food. On Wade's recommendation we hit up Beau Jo's pizza. I went for a Ham and Onion Mountain Pizza and it was almost without doubt the best non-home-made pizza I've ever hadrool: If you are within a thousand miles or so of this place, its probably worth the ride.

We enjoyed more ADV'er hospitality and stayed at B&B-ish place an adv'er hooked us up with that was an exit west of Idaho Springs. It was super cool and so was the company. We played some Nintendo, despite sucking in real life, I pretty much pwnd everyone in tennis:) Major thanks and post up!

Sunday we met up with Wade from TLZone and his 599-riding buddy to ride Loveland Pass. Wade put together the route and it was fantastic!

There was a turn or two in the road. The Bandit actually handled quite well, even two-up and toting enough gear for both of us for 3 days. The long, low Bandit is just pretty unaffected even with a total load of around 400lbs once adequate preload was dialed in. The motor lacked a serious top-end rush with that weight, but the torque was enough to propel us out of corners in a very respectable manner. The peg feelers were a touch shorter by the end of the day;)

Rolling into town behind Wade.
