So I'm meeting up with a group of friends to spend a week riding around on the back roads of Colorado. They have developed this route that makes a big circle in the middle of the state. I thought I'd make a place for us to post pics as we go, so family, friends and who ever could follow along.

A couple of us are coming from Oklahoma, one from South Carolina, one from Nebraska and all the others are from Colorado.

I'm the only one riding a little kid bike every one else will be on F800's or 1200 GS or KTMs.... they tolerate my sissy bike tagging along.

Here is a pic of my new Wolfman Soft bags, i learned my lesson last year with hard luggage.

Subscribed. Have a good ride and return safely.

I hope to ride a similar path, maybe the same path, in a week or so if life doesn't get in the way.


But I do have a question, what lesson did you learn about hard luggage last year?

sweet loop

knowing those roads a 650 thumper dual-sport would be even a better choice.
i'd say you'll do just fine.
bigger is better does NOT apply to the Colorado high country.

Yep.....I've done those roads and routes many times over the last 20 years on a lot of different bikes. You'll have a great time with your chosen mount and your picking a great time of year to do it! Be safe and have fun!

We were going to do the COBDR but heard a big crowd would be on the trail headed to the KTM rally in Steamboat. So we made our on ride. Couple of us locals know the trails pretty well.

EAkins I know you're just down the road. Maybe we can ride together one of these days.
