It's mid May and summers right around the corner, it's got to be time to start thinking about this year Colorado Dirt Bike and Brew Tour - right? Oh hell yea! I'm just as excited( if not more) than I was back in 2013 when I experienced my inaugural CO Dirt Bike and Brew Tour. I'm done hijacking other threads and will use this as my dumping ground for Tour related material. ADV is a great community and everyone is welcome to ask questions , share experience and comment. Please subscribe to my Youtube Channel for trip vids! Ya, now I'm Techno FU! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeQFwsgIwjpDm0ltv_bXF0A I offer no apologies for the dip in your work production this summer as you live vicariously and dick with the computer or phone during your 9-5 . The 2017 Colemanfu's Colorado Dirt Bike and Brew Tour will be my 5th and most elaborate CO expedition. My house is in order, I've hustled 3 jobs to pull this $hit off, I have a solid grasp on the logistical aspect of large scale ADVs and know 100% what puts a smile on my face as well as the converse - what I don't enjoy while I'm out west. I like bacon in the morning and a strong cup of fresh brewed java. I like single track stoke. I like finishing a hard day on the moto with some cold local suds back at camp. I like living like a premium dirt bag in a van down by the river. And most importantly I like to share the experience with Mrs. Mafu! 17 days this summer Without her unconditional support an ADV like this would not be possible. But first a recap of last years effort...... http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/colemanfus-colorado-dirt-bike-and-brew-tour-16.1150476/ 41 days on the road 59000 total miles on the van 1900 in country miles 12 different riding locations 1353 miles on the bike, 63.7 hours *21 different breweries (and one bonus distillery) Up next, van prep, bike prep, techno FU, FU's discovery of the clutch, and "the master plan".
