from this past July. Two GS's, one KTM 950, a KLR and a 650 Yamaha made it to the top from Ouray. After being told by several people that we shouldnt ride motorcycles up there????

I was on the 950, which didnt like the altitude much (or maybe it was me) so we went down a couple of times. There is an easy way up from Silverton, which we eventually found after being lost for a couple of hours, and going down a super steep road. Made even more fun by the 950 stalling.

As you can see from the pics, it is worth the effort! If you do it, dont go alone.
