Great RR Bryan! I must do Colorado someday..
Glad to see some things havn't changed on your treks!
No Randy, not much has changed on the Treks since you last joined us.
Charmers, the whole lot of ya.
I think I saw #18 in one of those pictures there.
I believe that is her pushing your hung-up bike on CannonTrek.CA.
Perhaps you remember chatting up these two curious girls on Manitoulin Island?
no pics with michelle obama?????
Nah..she's still pissed off over obama's selfie with that other broad
Certainly memorable. Led Zeppelin cowgirl with arm around neck would be one for the books, too. Best not let the wife see that action.
Is Pikes peak paved all the way to top these days was mostly gravel on our trip just a few yrs ago pic to the left in my profile is from top of Pikes Peak
used your GPS tracks for our CDT trip your the man already downloaded these tracks to my basecamp software thanks
The Pikes Peak road is, indeed, paved from bottom to top now. Paving was completed October 2011.
Well thats a bummer O well can't stop progress its still a beautiful ride up thanks for the reply
Hope you have some fun with these tracks. We had a blast.
All good fun.
I think that section would have been a lot more fun on a high clearance and light dirt bike.
Read a bunch of pages, saw some of the terrain are you saying the honda nc700x made it through all those nasty sections? That is awesome if true. I just saw that honda is revising it abit to a 750. Been looking for a mini version of my r1200gs for awhile, I just don't need such a huge bike although my wife loves it. so any feedback of how it did off road would be great or post a link to the info.
Yep, the Honda got thru everything pretty well.
There were only a couple of nasty rocky passes that more ground clearance and suspension would have been nice.
But riding this stuff on any loaded big bike is tricky.
I'd suggest reading the RR. It's a good read with lots of history and some inspirational riding.
And Honda, you can send out that commission check anytime now
Wow! A truly beautiful RR! The pictures. The history. The Colorado. My wife and I have been, but not like this.
I found this thread linked from the NC700X forum. That bike is staying high on my list. Man, I hope it fits.
What modifications were made to Dr. Zed's bike for this trip? What happened with the bent rim? The bike takes some criticism on forums for having cast wheels. What bash plate is that?
Other NC700X guy who posted here (I've been drinking by the fire as I read this, name eludes me, but I've seen your bearded mug around here before) what did you mean by "properly modified"? What've you done?
How do those XX/XX tires perform and last on paved roads? If I wanted to get into ADV, and still commute on the same bike, would it be best to have a set of tires for street and another for ADV?
Thanks, and thanks for the RR. It was nice fireside read tonight.
Northwestrider! That's the other guy! I went back and looked.
And what model year are yall riding? My reading says all model years are the same, but the 2014s have an issue with trip meters randomly resetting.
Offroad tires,hand guards and a good SKIDPLATE !!.
Live life,be yourself !!!!.
Another vote of thanks for this great RR.
The passes vary so much in technical challenge. A careful reading of your report might sort them out, but is there another source? For example rates them by roughest and loosest surfaces. Thanks
