    Well, I didn't get to ride the "Fall colors" this year but I did get a visit from Treadless on his way home. He stopped by the shop to retrieve some stuff of his I'd been holding since DVDaze last year. He told me the story about the bear breaking into his side box knocking the GS over on its side. Looks like it was another good one. :1drink Maybe next year...

    Good to see you Mike!

    Great Vid, great music, nice riding, but I believe that is Monitor Pass, HWY 89 and not Sonora pass, Hwy 108. Keep on Truckin.

    I think the early part was definitely Sonora heading west just after the summit, but I'm with you on some of the remainder as I couldn't place it.

    But definitely a cool song to go with a cool ride.

    Nope, the beginning is the section of 89 off of 395. The top of Sonora pass is Alpine and Artic style vegitation, (9k + feet above sea level) not desert scrub as in the video. I know those roads way too well.

    No worries. It was purr-fect, and like everyone else thought the music choice was excellent.

    Sorry I wasn't able to stay a 2nd night. It was a lot of fun even though I can't blame the bear for knocking over my bike. My only disappointment was finding out that Golden Taco is not a blonde woman.

    Are you 100% sure? Did you check things out in one of the tents?

    Life's full of disappointments. Most involve fire and alcohol.
