I guess I have never spent time just hanging out on the side of the road, but in my years riding that road I don't see that many lane fails.
The risk factor is quite severely upped on US550. Those are some serious dropoffs, so people are far less likely to ride over their head and find themselves pushing to the point of getting that far out of shape. You also don't see the same number of tourons visiting from FL and MI. I also didn't see a t-shirt shack or any killpeoples when I was out there last month.

The bike rider must have some money left over after blowing the budget on riding gear.

That ain't lack o' food, that there's lack of exercise. Skinny-fat is the new hotness.

Just want to clarify that most of the bug-eyed dicks from Nebraska go to the REAL mountains in Colorado, not those baby ones back east.

Looks like compression socks. Some *ahem* big-boned folks wear them to aid circulation. I play rugby and know a few large people.





They still look gay.
