So, getting ready to head out to Colorado again, this time to ride Tony Heugel's Heart of the West Adventure Route (originally called Forever West) http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=845500 Tony (with the help of Docking Pilot and others) has mapped out a fantastic loop of some historic and very scenic dirt roads in Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. I will be riding with Steve (Gun4Hire) again. We race hare scrambles here in Florida together in the cooler months and two years ago we rode a bunch in Colorado. Ride report with lots of pics and some videos here: http://www.advrider.com/forums//showthread.php?t=731643 We will be riding the same bikes as the Month of Sundays trip, me on my 2000 KTM 640E and Steve on his 1997 Honda XR600R. Steve keeps his bike out in Aurora and flies out there a couple times a year to get some riding in. I will be driving my bike out in my truck. We plan on camping as much as we can again. We're trying to pack as light as possible (isn't that always the challenge?) even though this route should be fairly easy compared to the stuff we rode two years ago. This time we are going to try using intercoms, a first for me. It should be fun. Anyone who has done the route or knows the area, feel free to chime in with any hints, cautions, whatever. Today I begin laying out all my gear and wondering how I will carry it all. I'll post again with some prep pics when it gets closer. I plan to leave here by Monday, Sept. 2nd and take a few days to get to Aurora. .
