Great report and pics! I rode Weston Pass on my 800 XC about a month ago. Fun as hell, that road. Views aren't half bad, either. Cottonwood Pass is a blast on both sides, paved and unpaved. I rode up the paved side and at the top was a guy on a big touring BMW road bike. He seriously looked bummed to know that I was riding down the dirt side and he was going back on the pavement. Ha! Dual sports rule!
Keep these kick ass RR's, pics and videos coming. They're awesome.
