    Deckers, 285, Jefferson, Tarryall, Teller 1, Teller 11, Hwy 9, Hwy 50, Hwy 115.

    It would be worth it if in the Hills, otherwise not so much. It's only 450 miles to Rapid City.

    Rampart Range conditions excellent today Sat 25th. Only a few icy puddles in the darkest shadiest corners but great traction everywhere!

    675 has a new reroute for several miles in from RRR almost pool table smooth fast flowy fun but loose. Don't miss out!

    Were those inmates I spotted yesterday around Tarryall? Red side-hack accompanying another bike... I waited and waited for them at a photo op to get an action shot but they never showed.. guessing they hit Matukat or went back to 24...

    Hit up Guanella but got blocked by ice between MM 7-8 when approaching from the south... being the big sissy I am, I turned around and headed home through Pine/Deckers/Sprucewood. Roads were fine but it was VERY busy up there.
    Wanted to fly the drone around the North Platte hotel but there were just waaaaaay too many people...

    Always glad to help. Thanks again for lunch. Heated gloves work great on the Banditto. Can't wait to get it out on the open road.:happay

    Fall down? Go boom? Ok?

    Saw a rider at I25/Dry Creek this evening, riding like moron into slowing traffic. I was two lanes over as he stuffed it into drastically slowing traffic. As he went by I wondered to myself "Where's he gonna go? ... has to be between cars... " - when traffic didn't speed up and people were stopping, I wondered WTF..... then I saw him, bike on the side, him sitting on the top. Only got a glance as there were people stopping everywhere and I didn't wanna hit a pedestrian... hope he was OK...

    My arms are tired from holding on. . . I would hate to get blown off the Banditto at over 120 trying to keep up with the Yammerjammer. :imaposer

    Merry Christmas. Nice ride today.
    Another good year ahead.
    I think I got 20 mpg for a while today. :-)

    I hang my bikes from the ceiling when the wheels come off. Makes for a lot less drama.

    Saturday! Gonna be up to mid fifties on the Western Slope and NO SNOW (in most places).
    Time to get the 500EXC ready for a trail ride. Weird for the dead of Winter, but I'll deal with it.
