Warren - What great photographs you took. Photography was also an avocation of yours. But how did you get this picture without being run over by a flying motorcycle?


My dad used to shoot 828 Kodachrome with a Bantam in the late 40s - some of the best pictures he ever took were on 828. I wish there were modern cameras for that film size.
Thanks you again Wes for sharing and I am also interested in your book also when it is available.

Hagerman! our back yard. We grew up in Leadville. Hagerman on a GS with full luggage? there are some tricky spots on the west side, TAME indeed, I don't think so... That's Dad in the old photo, I don't know that the cameraman lived or not...

re; Hagerman

Wes
My riding partner and I left Basalt about 9:30 am due to concerns about ice on the roads along the river road leading up to Hagerman. You are right - there were places we got off the bikes and walked up about 200-300 yards just to make sure we would make it. Just above one of the snow gates the grade is steep enough and rough enough that I knew I did not want to stop mid stream, but had to clear it in one bite or regret it. Fortunately we made it and went on over the pass. We passed a group of 4 -wheelers as we were descending from the top who looked at us kind of funny.
We ate lunch in Leadville at a little local hamburger shop across the street from this sign - you probably know the name of the restaurant -

We then rode down the valley and out of Colorado and spent the night in Syracuse Kansas listening to cows moo..... What a great day it was for Dan and I.
It is so neat to learn that people have been riding these mountains for years - thanks again for the pictures you and your father have posted.

Pathfinder - still a much tamer rider than the Webers

awsome pics, Mr. Weber! Thats when men were men,(to coin) you can see the determination in their eyes in every picture that they were`nt scared or worried about scratchin their bikes or bodies! most have no gloves, none helmets and narie a nobby in SNow!i don`t even see SHOCKS! i say put um on the front page of this site! like someone said before, do that stuff nowadays and the rideing spot would look like a partsunlimited delivery truck was hit by a S.C.U.D!, shit all over the place, gps`s,cameras,cellphones,tankbags,panniers, racks,engine gaurds, windshields, modular helmets flippin open, dealers backed up for months makein repairs!! ah, what fun that would be! you`d need the guard just to stop the looters...
imagine doin that snow on a horizontal twin "how bought you man, my footpegs are HOT!" he he

ayurp, damn right that man, I think it mighta been me said that stuff before, but whatafuck .. .. . those pics remind me of much, not the least being how when I bought my first bike in about '68 (a poxy lil 120cc Kwaka 'RoadRunner', 4 speeds rotary box with the chance to select first at 60mph) & spent the next few weeks with the tinsnips & pop-rivet gun making a 'Panier' thing (aka 'The Hot Dog Stand) to contain some kit, then zoomed off into some pretty damn wild sandstone country NW of Sydney all by meself alone, dragged the lil fucker thru a few streams, & 'survived' for mebbe 3 or 4 daize (well, thats how it seemed) & had FAR more fun on a bike than probably I have had in all the years since .. . .

ayurp, fun IS where ya find it!

BrooC ;-))

Great report! Your dad and his friends are awsome! Looks like they need to add the 1950 Harley 74 to the adventure bike list. I definately want a copy of the book when it comes out.

Warren,

Are you going to go to the Advrider get together at Ouray this summer? There's a lot of us that would love to meet you. You're our kind of people. Folks like yourself laid the foundation of what biking is today, and you still have much to teach, I'm sure.

Please come.

Let's you know where the little used term "Man's man' came from.

Those are men. They're nuts, but they are real men.

Once again, the Webers pull out even a better ride report than the last spectacular one! You guys must be proud. I sure would be. Hats off.

A big "thank you" to the Weber boys, all three of you. Simply fantastic pictures.

Makes me want to ride up to Pennsylvania, visit with my grandfather for an afternoon, and page through his old bike pictures.
