    First I would like to thank Docking Pilot for planting the seed , and Sourjohn for doing the legwork to make the trip possible.
    We had a five man crew that never had a cross word and had a blast.

    Rick M and I drove from Texas to Buena Vista , Co. to start our trip. We then rode to Yampa, Co. to meet the other guys and hit our modified Forever West Trail.

    Yes big ups to DockingPilot and his crew for sharing their trip back two winters ago and giving us inspiration to do this one. We talked about it for quite a while and finally pinned down a date that would work. Unfortunately we couldn't do the whole thing but what we did was fantastic.

    We had quite a mix of bikes. I came from Kentucky with a trailer carrying my KLR and grabbed two from St Louis on the way out.

    This was as clean as these bikes would be for the next week as we attempted this loop of Colorado, Utah and Wyoming.

    I knew it was going to be a great trip.
    This was the view out the windshield on the way out. [​IMG]

    I'll get online tonight and get my day #1 loaded.
    All I'll say at this point is, that it's hard to imagine this trip going any better for the first five days. A couple of leaky front shock seals. That's it. Then it was a mystery elec gremlin on day six.
    I wish we were still out there.
