A friend and I are doing a 6 day loop (all pavement) through Colorado and Utah starting in Denver this Saturday. I’m on a Tiger 800 and he’s on an MT-07 (FZ-07). We’ve used other posts on ADVrider, along with motorcycle road maps as a guide and have a route mapped out that we feel pretty good about but have a feeling there’s some good stuff we’re missing. Part of me wants to keep it unstructured, but I also don’t want to miss out on some potentially awesome roads/views especially if it’s a minor detour. We are also open to major ones. Can you guys take a look and offer your input on the route? We are also interested in any landmarks, breweries, and restaurant recommendations to break up the riding days. Link: Go ahead and edit the route if you are able! https://drive.google.com/open?id=1A0wBe3Rf_w8lBxqD5nL9Qi4KvntjRB90&usp=sharing Some more specific questions I’m hoping you guys can answer: 1) Is the detour to Deckers worth doing on our way out of Denver? Or should we just take 285? 2) Black canyon of the Gunnison – is there a good way to see this on bikes? 3) Moab - any good paved rides in this area other than Arches National Park? And is it worth going all the way out here to not do any off-road riding? 4) Is Fry Canyon in Utah worth the long detour? 5) Top 3 (paved) mountain passes in Colorado that are not to be missed? Thanks for your input!
