196 Colorado Passes - Garmin GDB file.
Also, the Google Earth version available in this thread.
I've done all the paved passes over 10,000 ft in Colorado on my BMW 1100 LT and a few of the over 10,000 dirt passes on my XR-650. So far I have not had a problem with any of them. However some of them are so far out of the way that it can take two days of ridding to get there and back. I think Trail Ridge, Independence, Cameron and Red Mountain are the best for spactacular scenery. If you get a chance to do Bear tooth in Montana I highly recommend it. It is probably the most scenic of all the passes I've been on.
+1 on the Beartooth Highway. I think the pass is actually in Wyoming, but the top is right at the border. Great views. I did that route on my summer 06 ride to Banff, Canada.
I just signed up for the PB50 and plan to include the photos I have of my first ever pass which was Engineer Pass on the F650GS before I knew anything about riding dirt. 12,800 feet. Just about killed me. Howzat for breaking in a n00b. Of course, I had to get over McClure before getting to Engineer but that was cake (except for the rocks which are always falling on the highway. :eek1 ). I was just working on my photos, here's a the shot at Engineer.
