w00t! Happy Riding, I finally get to meet you! We'll be in RV space 10.
You guys will get along just fine.
note to self: RV space 10, danger....
Does sound dangerous, doesnt it. Should I have earplugs Clear up in Cabin 3??
Well then I guess I hope to meet you there! I'll be doing the San Juan 500 and then joining the Rendezvous. Definitely looking to better my skills and tackling fears. Looking forward to meeting many great people along the way!
Nah. We're quiet when we have to be. Sometimes. Don't get me near the Patron.
Is it July yet.....
I've been contemplating taking the 450 this year rather than the GSA. I just hate to cage it that many miles. And these kinda pics sure aren't helping me convince myself I should take the big pig.
Choosing between droning along a boring highway or riding some of the best dirt in the U.S.A. is easy.
As long as you are talking about a straight line interstate, across Kansas.....yeah, I agree with you.
Everyone should understand, that the tarmac in the San Juan's are some of the best twisties in the US. The Million Dollar Highway from Ouray to Durango has very few equal's. For those of you bringing big bikes, there are some awesome 200-500 mile loops out of Silverton.....all pavement. This area is the hands-down favorite for the wife and I 2-up'ing. We always point this direction for our Fall Leaf Ride.
Less cops on stuff like this, although John makes a point about the roads around there being very nice but still for me there be a cop issue I know how I am on a sport bike...LOL To me the single track offers better views that fewer see.
Um... you can take big bikes on many beautiful roads in the San Juans. You don't have to stick to pavement.... I've been planning a big bike day that will get you over a few passes and see some great scenery.
IN!!! The question is what bike to ride???

I know I'll be in for that one. That is, of course, unless you are planning on taking that big GS over Black Bear....
Sent from my device upon which I can access nearly all knowledge in the world, yet which I actually use to look at pictures of motorbikes and cute dogs.
I'm thinking of tagging Cinnamon and Engineer, then up and over Hurricane, California, and Corkscrew. Depending on time (and if it's dry...) maybe down and tagging Red Mountain, Black Bear (up and back)and Ophir for 8 passes in a day. Overachievers can then run up and do Molas and Coal Bank, flipping back by Lime Creek road for 10. A day with an objective!
But then what are you going to do in the afternoon?
I don't know... maybe ride up to Orvis and soak for a while.
You should be able to do that easily in 3-4 hours with a small group and minimal fall-downs.
Certainly 10 passes in 5 hours should be a reachable goal.
Lookin' forward to meeting you. I will be in Tent City. Look for a really dirty Vstrom with smiley faces on the sides.
