Bikes guns and shine

Bikes, guns and shine, what could possibly go wrong?

Advtenn and I (rabbot) headed out from ETN and WNC respectively, for WestFest followed by RMAR.
Two tigers, couple of hand guns and some of Tennessee's finest sipping whiskey.
Nothing much happened today but we are only twelve hours into this.

Going to try and post some pictures here in a minute. This is all being done on a smart phone please bear with

Before Pikes peak

So after driving for hours in "Level land" we ended up at Mac's and was quick to jump on the bikes for a shake down ride.

Rob and Mac discussing a short loop through "Gold Camp Road"









We had to drive through a terrible neighborhood called "Broadmoor"





The slums , I tell ya!





Colorado Springs


^^^^^^^^^Looking back at Colorado Springs"^^^^^^^^^^^



Gold camp road



Even cooler tunnel






Destination, Cripple Creek

Getting ready for Pikes peak

Big breakfast from the de casa de Mac.

This ain't your local Hardees breakfast bowl.





Ok, now its time to hit the road. I think if Rob could find a way to put that "Green egg" on his bike, he would. Look at the size of that air matress.

Sleeping single in a double bed.........

Funny

It's made by a company called Jack's Plastic Welding. It's called a Paco Pad.
a) I've gone around the world with it.
b) I recommend one to anyone who wants a good nights sleep outdoors.
c) It doubles as a camp lounger and a life raft should the need arise.

Given how much it rained on this trip I was glad to have it. See point "b"

Pikes Peak

I finally caught up with you Rob.

Pikes Peak photo op.




Notice how clean these Tigers look!


Would you look at at the size of that air mat/river raft!






This is about the time we meet a self proclaimed "Indian Outlaw"

(this is him in a file photo, taken on Mt. Evans)
