We are willing to drive several hours.....Please HELP!!!!!! SR

    For those that missed this incredible experience, it was WAY funnier in person :lol3:rofl:clap

    Especially when he pointed & slashed the sword at the minivan. :clap

    By minivan, I mean Yuppie SUV grocery-getter, and they looked like this: :huh

    Paul you tough old chap. A broken leg and still hopping around helping Emily cook us some great chow. Look at it on the bright side, you can still ride the GS with a cast on. :D

    A few more pictures to share if anyone cares.

    Uh, which way? Team KLR wondering if we should have just tailed team NeverLost. Ironically, team KLR only comprised of 3 KLR's out of our group of 9. However, we probably had the most diverse group of bikes of all the teams. We had the only Stelvio of the Dino ride, the only Husky, one of only two Yammy's, one DR and one KTM.

    Would love to see your Trail Ridge shots. We had the unfortunate pleasure to slab it back from Rangely. 7.5 hours straight. Sir Ian was a hoot to ride with though.

    The Ridge Trail was from Day 1 (or Day 2, for us), the ATV track NW of Maybell. I slabbed it solo from the end of the Yampa Bench, 250 miles total in about 8 hours, with quite a few stops to rest my butt! SO, here's the ridge trail, following Norm:

    The metal is supposed to slowly dissolve into my bones, thereby turning them to super alloy. But I decided I couldn't wait and got my hands done while I was there.
