Thanks for reading!
Hey Randy,How deeply do you think you explored Colorado? Just passed through or did you spend a few days there?
The latest issue of Motorcyclist has a short write up on the Colorado back country and an organization called Backcountry Discovery Routes.
I'm already planning a trip in my head and as of now it includes some exploration of the Colorado backcountry.
What say you?
I just found your RR and must say I'm really impressed! I'm already planning a trip out west... but I have a Yamaha FZ1. Not quite a dual sport!
Thanks for reading! Trust me it doesn't make a difference what kind of bike you plan on taking out west you will have a great time!
Believe me I spend a large amount of time daydreaming about my next trip. There are a bunch of those BDRs all over the country and they all look amazing.
Due to the weather I had to cut my Colorado experience a bit short, but nonetheless had the most difficult day I ever had on two wheels in the Uncompahgre forest. I'd love to do the COBDR. I think with another person to back you up, it's doable on a big bike. Or even pack up the dirt bikes and do it at a bit higher pace.
That would be a great reason to head west again.
No more WR?
Sold it a few weeks ago.. Its been replaced by a 350 EXC. I welcome any and all koolaid jokes.
Suppose the Tenere is next to turn orange?
Nope... My love affair with the big S-10 is still in full swing. It fills the role I set for it perfectly and I still don't see anything that would do as well.
The WR was a fantastic bike. I bought it thinking I was going to do more weekend trip/dual sport ADV style riding with it. In reality I ended up doing very few trips and mostly trail riding and single track. The KTM is a better tool for that job in my case, and will handle the occasional trip without issue.
I wish I could justify keeping both!
He hasn't ridden big orange yet ,we'll have to see if his attitude changes after he does .
Be gone with you, evil spreader of orange!!!!!
I beginning to see that the "justifying" thing is way overdone!
If you had to choose ,would it be big bike or small bike?
If I we were to go together, I would go with either. Alone, I would go with the Tenere again and explore different areas.
So I have purchased Randys bike and he kindly offered to deliver it.
This is what he was up against this morning
Greg, it was a pleasure meeting you and I'm glad the bike is going to a good home.
As much as I love my new bike, I still look in that corner of the garage expecting to see my S10 there. What a great machine she was. Treated me right did she...
The ride out there was a test of my will and endurance. Down in the 'teens, even a heated jacket doesn't cut it.
Why did you take such a boring route through the midwest when you could of cross the border and re-entered the U.S at Sault Ste Marie or headed north at michigan and crossed the Mackinac Bridge and rode through the U.P. on highway 2. Very nice ride. A lot better than the interstate through ohio, indiana and illinois (not that are not some very nice back roads in these states)
Great Pictures !
