We did. I'm gonna post some pix in the Michaux thread. Nice meeting you.

Back to Colorado.
7/5/12 Thursday
RenoB (aka Steve) looking like he's up to somethin.



He lead the way almost the whole ride. He came to ride hard and he succeeded.





I didn't successfully take another photo that day. My Cannon decided it didn't want to behave among other reasons.

Riding was AWESOME here in the Rio Grande National Forest! Indiana Pass was spectacular.
Everything was going great until just before Del Norte. We got our asses kicked by Mother F-in Nature.
It was threatening to storm on us for an hour or so. I was up front, for some reason, with Bill following in the truck. it started raining on me just as the gravel section gave way to paved. I was good to go cuz I had put my rain gear on and secured the bike for rain, but I didn't expect what happened next. Dime size hail began to smack the crap out of us. I was riding virtually blind, but there was no shelter to hide in. I looked down at one point and saw what I thought was foam covering the road, but it wasn't foam. It was an inch of friggin hail! I slowed a bit
Bill had the sense to capture these videos.
He has music playing and is screaming at one point.



#2 is awesome.




This is Kevin's take on the morning.


I thought my rain gear had failed because my uh crotchal region was cold as ice..... well... the gear did its job, there was several inches of hail piled up down there.

When the storm subsided, I felt like I won a war!! And there was much rejoicing.

We were all beat and in need of a break, so we got gas and ate at a restaurant in Del Norte.

For me, this is when the day went really bad, I got the news that my friend Lakota had highsided and was in the ICU in El Paso TX with a brain injury. That's all I knew until I got a text from RFlagg42 the next day. He made me feel a little better. I was feeling pretty helpless a state and a half away. Lakota is still recovering from his trauma and is making progress.

With my mood in the shitter, and all of us feeling the mornings whompin, we skipped the afternoon gravel and made straight for Salida where we got 1 of 2 hotels during the CDR trip.

I have no pictures from any town... I didn't take a photo in Salida and we f-ed up and missed Heydukes Fat Tees shop. I have shirts from him. He's the official ADV shirt vendor.

Salida was the coolest little town.

7/6/12 Friday.
North of Salida. Into San Isabel National Forest.
My cannon decided it would work for a while.....




Another spectacular day on the CDR!!! Colorado TOTALLY SUCKS!!

It's not a snake.







Into the high prairie.

















You just can't make this shit up... Miles from anywhere.



More from Friday next.

I ain't sayin.
Sounds like a good dream to me....

7/6 continued











This seems like a failed attempt at a house more than an old structure that was once lived in.





Into Hartsel... and who do we find here?
This is GeckoRider. He was riding the CDR with a buddy.



we traded a few stories, talked about how cool ADV is and went our separate ways. I swear I saw him again giving me the salute going the other direction. As I saw the guy on the grey F800 he gave me the finger, I thought how reassuring!!! There were many short riders we ran into, but ALL of the long distance motorcycle riders were ADV riders!!!!



More CDR north of Hartsel:















It got stormier and stormier as the day went on for the 4th day in a row...
We decided to get our second and last hotel on the CDR. The Colorado we were visiting was rainy every day.

There is a deer in this pic


The next motorcycle joy was my headlight malfunction. Laugh at me if you will.... and you will... I still have not worked out the intermittent headlight.
I was cranky and didn't ride the afternoon of trail. I pulled into a hardware/autoparts store and took the front of my bike apart. i effected no change in my headlight woes by the time the other riders caught up to me.

7/7/12 Saturday continued.





We met another couple of riders on the CDR..... Her F wasn't going to stay that clean for long!!!


More high prairie.




Battle Mountain














Into the Aspens again.









Next.
As Banjo said, we were in for it while going over the border of Wyoming.... something like 60 miles of high speed washboard that shook our teeth out. We followed that with the BEST FUKIN CAMPGROUND of the trip.
