    Guess I was thinking more of big bike friendly kind of INTRO to Colorado for first timers, but I could bring the 525 :evil

    Had a neighbor on that ride I believe. Used to think he was just an asshole. Then we both discovered we had bikes. BMW's non the less. Now he's actually still an asshole, but I call him a friend, so he feels better about riding with me. He "the asshole" said it was a blast, and I should go next year. He "the asshole" trailers his bike. Never done that before.

    Since I finally figured out to embed a video, here is Justin riding one of the secondary routes. Darn noob kept speeding out of sight but it gives you an idea of what the secondary routes were like.

    some shots I took. I took like 7 is all.

    Copper Cliff......off of the alternate on the first alternate. You can see the oxidized copper in it, the teal rock.[​IMG]

    The bike clean and ready to go. Before the broken kickstand bracket, blown fork seal and broken clutch cable

    This is after 1117 miles of MT. I would hate to see it if I did not lead for a day or two.

    here are the other shots I took.

    Can't remember the riders name......met so many people that week. Mud hole on S. Fork Poorman Cr. alternate for day 2.

    Shot from the Gravs....near where we set up camp.

    That is all I have for photos. Pretty sad, 1117 miles of fun and no photos of it. well I would rather ride than pretend I am a photographer. Besides I would rather share my ride with good fun people, as aposed to sharing photos of rides.
