KLR is on queue for the a.m. My turn to need an inspection sticker and will hits Ken's at noon. This bike will be heading to WV the w/e after next and it needs to be ready.

Look out Pickens, Rella's, the Hutte, and maybe a little Dolly Sods - we be ready.

Mine expired last month, but never got a chance to scoot over there. Think they're still closed on Mondays, so rode the Connie today.

So perhaps we'll have an eyeball tomorry.

Yup, "Season of the GoPro" I say....3M sticky mount...kit also came with some giant suction cup thingy...I've seen guys use that on helmets
but a tether might be necessary...I wouldn't trust it.

I had a track side pass. I was using my wife's new DSLR camera. It really takes some awesome pictures.

I am starting to wonder if your wife somehow knows when to call her parents so they show up when scruffy motorcycle people are around.

LOL! Not with the trailer I have. Width is iffy, but way shy with the capacity.

Lemme look around up here. May have some options.

Hey, I know some of y'all have a lot of experience out west. I've just got my feet wet out there a couple of times. However, for those interested in knowing more about Colorado, check out this primer.

Great pics too.
