I believe 205 would be appropriate.

First 2 days have been Awesome, perfect weather, and lots of riding. 12 passes total, and 21,000 feet in elevation change yesterday in 145 miles.

Single track in Rico tomorrow, I will have to be on my game to try and keep up with Gore. Oh wait a minute, that's right he stayed home. Calico trail will be one of the highlights.

Or we will hit some single track north of here . Major forest fire took out a 100,000 plus acres in the Rio Grande forest back in June. Holy crap.

Only problem so far is I can't figure out how to post picture from me phone. Will post some up when we get back.

That looks more like pushing your bike, not riding it.

Heck you even got a trials tire on.

Bike , etc hanging off the back will add overall weight to the camper , but in that position it will take some of the weight off of the tongue.

I found deals on a couple of Courtyard Marriotts in Oakbrook Terrace and Itasca. Good locations?
