    Near the Lily Lake Visitor's Center, on Hwy 7, about 10 miles south of Estes Park, CO. That is Long's Peak: 14255 feet. Tina and I ride that road, which locals call the "peak to peak," a few times a month on our way to breakfast in Nederland.

    Here's another pic from the same ride... We like this peak, which looks to us like a shark's tooth. Anybody know the name of it?

    We're always looking to hook up with other riders. Send me an e.

    These are some great pics, guys. I've been wondering what the limits of the V-Strom are. It looks like they'll do just about anything that is asked. I'll add some pics when I get somewhere more interesting.

    Here are a few shots from a late April '05 gathering of V-Stroms at Ironhorse Motorcycle Lodge in Stecoah, North Carolina. 20+ Stroms showed up for the week-end.

    Can you still ride through Zion from end to end? Last time I was there, the ranger told me that due to heavy traffic of diesels and other undesirables like motorhomes, the place was going to be tour bus only. You park then ride.

    Did that really happen?

    I rode from the South Entrance to the East Entrance but the Northern Scenic drive is shuttle bus only. The ride was awesome and I should've stayed in the area for a couple days rather than head east where there wasn't as much to see. Next time I'm staying in South West and Northern Utah.

    Here's a picture taken from the local shooting range in Gateway, CO. My new custom tailrack works great with my HelenTwoWheels dry-bag.

    And here is Zion. The Virgin River was flowing 1000 times its normal rate while I was there. And the tailrack doubles as a Givi mount -- just right for day trips from the hotel.
