    That hill climb switch backs at the beginning of Burro Road was soooo sandy this year. I am glad nobody laid it down there. Your V did great on street tires... :clap

    Ah geez, my bad .... that's what you get for parking off by yourself. Thanks John for getting Bill on the score card.

    I too am not a fan of the custom earpieces. Most are made of hard plastic that transmits any wind or other vibrations directly to your ear bones. Those are Much more noisy than the earbuds that have squishy foam that fills your earhole and seal out road induced noise. I like good sound.

    I use these Shure earbuds. They lay flat and the wire goes over the ear so helps prevent them getting yanked out of your ear:

    http://reviews.cnet.com/headphones/shure-se530/4505-7877_7-32327764.html?tag=mncol;rvwBody Yikes, pricey.

    These are less expensive but still very pricey:

    These are probably the best bang for the buck. Soft squishy earhole fillers can be found to fit just about all:

    Well, since you're in Colorado you could go over Mosquito pass. Let me know how that works out for you.

    West to East is easier IMHO. Picking up fully loaded GSA multiple times at 13,000+ ft. Priceless.

    That's a funny story, she didn't want to give up to much info other than she worked for a real horses ass



    just kidding ... we were all admiring her hand made, custom bike from Italy and her and companion were admiring our get ups. She says, "my boss rides a bike like yours up in the hills of Orange County." Small world.

    About 700 miles with some great stuff on and off the pavement.
    Weather was good, but a little warmish at times.
    I had a really good time and would do it all over again.
