I've been thinking about a trip to Colorado and Utah. This post is a kernal of the beginning of a plan to execute this trip. I'm planning about 14-16 days, second half of June '13. I'll be riding a 1995 Honda Nighthawk. Bike currently has about 25 K miles. I will be camping most of the way. I'm a retired teacher and money is an issue. The goal is to ride some fun roads and see a part of the country that I've not experienced. I've laid out a preliminary route, but I'm not wedded to it. I like to stop and take pics, visit with folks and generally take a mellow approach. I'm wondering how many miles I can cover per day once I'm out west. Most of the days are between 250 - 300. Sounds like a lot once I'm in the hills. When I was on the BRP, 200 miles was a lot in one day, but the speed limit was 45.
