    Never doubt the ability of a KLR to cover distance...

    Always open to anyone with a motorized two or three wheeler. Looks like all day if we finish the loop.

    I PM'ed the regulars before Podzo posted the ride so you decide how big a group.

    Count me IN!
    If we are doing Tennessee Pass thru Minturn it will be 400 miles give or take and be all day.
    I like to be home by dark as it gets pretty cold quickly when the sun goes down this time of year.
    Should be back by 5-6 if we stop for lunch along the way. Just did some needed Maintenance on the Duc.
    New front tire, bled the brakes, took off some of the Carbon Fiber bits. Ready for probably the last high country ride of this season.

    That is what I am thinking our last big road bike ride in the mountains snow should hit pretty soon. The duck will run Saturday.
