Wow!

Thanks for taking the time to write up about your adventures, and give a glimpse into the beautiful backcountry of Colorado. We were there also on street bikes this past summer, riding some of the well known highways including Independence Pass and the Million Dollar highway. I loved it! I don't think my Kawi would care for the off road experience, so it has sure made me wonder about stepping over to the dirt side of things...

I appreciate the bit of history accompanying your pictures, makes one really think about how life must have been back in those remote areas....not easy, yet indeed surrounded by beauty.

I would ride back to Colorado in a second...wait...maybe the snow here needs to melt first. Thanks for the shot of fuel you've added to the fire that is my desire to ride....the further the better.

Happy trails to you and your HB.

Moving Back

We're heading back to Colorado mid-summer and are looking forward to riding some of these same areas. You really got me stoked!

Thanks to all of you that have posted notes of appreciation and enjoyment of my lil' ride report. I hesitate to post 'em here 'cause I'm a dual sport rider and not an adventure rider. And shucks... a piddly dual sport ride in Colorado pales in comparison to some of the true adventure rides posted in these forums!! Maybe one of these days me n' HB can ride atop the Great Wall of China for its entire length, eating nothing but bamboo shoots and leachy nuts, and then we can truly post an adventure ride report!

Seriously: As many of you know, doing up a ride report is a lot of work... but when others enjoy the effort it makes it worth while. Thanks for saying so!
