Hi Geek!

How about video? We just did Pearl with Radek (rburkat) and had a blast.






Of course, going down was a little tougher. My post is here.
We had a get off in the rocks (going too slow) and I walked down the big step just to be safe.

And, yes, this was the easy direction (Crested Butte to Aspen).


But, it was awesome!
You guys in Colorado have it good.

Great video! The smile on your face says it all

Best lines from your ride report:

but I had screamed because cold water was running into my pants!
It was like having a bunch of ice cubes dumped into my underwear.

Best ride what I did in Colorado was from Marble over Schofield Pass to Crasted Butte, up to Pearl Pass over to Tylor Pass down to Tylor park Reservoar.

P.S. Clutch loved me ;)

I have a lot of respect for someone that rides that pace, on that terrain, TWO UP!!! A lot of variables to control there.

Great video......That looks like a perfect road for the 950

That is a great video and a prime example of why we ride these type bikes!

Love the sound track and what a pillion to have such faith in her man!

Some things I saw on the COBDR heading to the Rally

Yep, CJ was on the trail


Me too


This big guy seemed to be impressed with my moose looking duke mirrors... For a moment I was wondering how to avoid his overtures


Colorado is a beautiful place


Met a couple mates from down under


The beaver pond is deeper than it looks


Boulder city was flooding this day!


My best friend was happy to see me home
