2 of us are packed up and heading to Denver where we will pick up 3 more friends. Our steeds include 1 1150GS, 1 1200GS and 3 1200GSAs. The plan is to pick up the our other riders on Friday and head on scenic pavement to Delores, CO, which is where the dirt portion of the Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route begins, and head north. We probably grab a hotel in Telluride on Friday night which could be our last hotel for 9 days until we have to catch a return flight. We are currently motoring through Topeka Kansas and guzzling 9mpg with the Silverado. Stay tuned if you want vicarious adventure. Or, if you want to feel better about yourself and your riding abilities as we catalog how many times Judd goes down and how many pieces of his bike get broken and left behind. Fortunately, he is impact resistant. Here is his back and a Klim Badlands tatoo from one recent mishap. .
