    Steve, great video! Glad you made it that was a tight squeeze! Hard to get your breath up that high too. At least it was for me. Be safe and have a ball.

    all it would take would be a bump from the jeep mirror and there is no place on the right to set your foot on, and then you and your bike would be at the bottom, and probably not in fair shape either! :eek1

    ALWAYS pass on the uphill side, as JD said! :thumb

    Great vid, I haven't been on either of the passes you had videos of so was good to be able to "ride" them with ya. Good job riding too. I bet you'll get your full measure of rocks before you get done with the passes though. And here we thought Ark was rocky!:lol3

    Charlie,

    this post reminded me of something.

    http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=825188


    I would have liked to have stopped and put that smoldering fire out that we all rode past on sunday.

    it looked safe, or I would have stopped obviously, but it was smoking, I had forgotten about until I saw the above linked post.


    thoughts?

    Wow, I guess I should have stopped because I was thinking the same thing when we passed.

    yeah buddy.

    next time, lets stop and put those out... there was enough dinosaur piss on that ride to flood a colorado ski town.

    I think yall could have put a campfire out.

    Rode in about 12:30 today. I logged about 3k miles! Couldn't be happier that my TKC's made the whole trip with no problems or flats, and the only damage I had was a busted up tailight.

    That jeep coule have went further up the hill or took the outside. Up hill has the 'right of way' would have been a pucker factor for me....other than that skid mark in my shorts factor look like a blast.:thumb
