    Looks like a nice ride. I might do that one next weekend. I'd take the 88 past Roosevelt Lake though. There's a long stretch of dirt, but it's quite a ride.

    Just did 666 for the 32nd time this past weekend. Still snow on the shoulders in a few places. Limited dust which was a surprise. And a little cool for the tar snakes to act up! Beautiful weather. I have traveled many of the worlds great roads and this is still my favorite. Almost 100 miles (160 kms) and 525 switchbacks (AZ HWYS mag years ago counted). Enjoy!

    Looks like a great way to get adjusted to the new toy. I'm a little jealous of all the good riding you've got out there

    You can't get the Varadero in the USA. Wasn't ever offered south of the border. You may be able to import one, but you'd have to check carefully.
    Mines at 34,000 kilometres now, hasn't been a bad bike

    Great pictures!

    Have a question for those of you that have ridden it. Is there any camp grounds between Clifton and Alpine? Any recommendations or places to stay away from? Not worried about water will have my own. Thanks

    At least 5 USNF campgrounds spaced out along the route, and never too busy.

    Thanks for the reply. Figured with that long of a section of National Forest that there had to be something along there. Just wanted to be sure. Thanks again.

    If you don't want to sleep on the ground look up Hanagins Meadow. Beautiful place out in the woods.

    I'll be heading to the 191 on Sunday June 9th with a friend of mine from California. We'll probably be heading North to Farmington on our way to Colorado. I'll be looping back from Ouray and doing the Telluride loop then heading back to the valley. 3 days. If anyone cares to join us let me know. We'll be on street bikes so it'll be all pavement. Should be a good time.
