Well yeah- notice how "high" the terrain they are riding?

I knew where it was filmed, and watching them ride made me miss & appreciate "our back yard". And just so that I'm not misunderstood again, that would be the Rocky Mountains, USA.

Oh, I understand now, you meant to say 'our out back' rather than 'our back yard'. I would love to be riding right now in 'our back out'. So if we can figure out how to flip the season, that would be real good.

Scary, hope the rider survived. No ATTGAT can prepare for that.

Maybe, but in this situation it might just mean he would be floating on the surface when the SUV that got washed off the road lands on him

Jacket is bad ass. It has good karma too. My doG weighs 30 pounds, she barely fits.

Motorcycle shop and swap

Can anyone tell me if the Colorado annual shop and swap has anything of interest for Adv folks, or is it just for the Harley people? It's tomorrow and Sunday.

Thanks

It is mostly curiser type stuff but I have found gems there. The people watching is also a lot of fun. A lot of walking and a lot to see. That said I don't think I am going this year, but it is a lot of fun. IMHO:
