The only part affected as of today is that the easy bypass from Hwy 550 to Ridgeway over Owl Creek Pass. Owl Creek is closed due to a different fire... the East Fork Fire in the east fork of the Cimmaron river. Just to into Silverton then skip Corkscrew, Hurricane and California passes and pick it all back up over Cinnamon.

Camera? Image processing?

Maybe I missed this, but what camera were you using and what image processing did you use?

Welcome to Colorado

Hope you like living here, but don't expect to much with the rat escaping the burning ship/California thing though because Colorado is little Cali. I bet a million people have left Cali and moved here in the past decade or so, and brought their lifestyles and political views with them. For what its worth, it gets more like California every year. For some that is good, and for some it just sucks. Anyway, everybody on this site loves to ride, so we can all find common ground on that. Keep the shiny side up my friend, and welcome! Enjoying reading your RR

I moved here from Michigan, but am originally from Cali. I find it a refreshing mix of the closed minded but less flaky midwesterners and the open minded but flaky West Coast folks. I like being exposed to all views, so I can make my place in the middle. Work hard and keep an open mind. I watch FOX and MSNBC. Both make me cringe at times ;)

Good to see you too. Unfortunately just found this site... I love it. I am considering buying a DS to park next to our beloved Hypers. Just can't seem to make up my mind. KTM 690 seems to have too many FI problems. F800GS too heavy. XR650L too unexciting. Same for KLR and DR. WR250R too weak, I know- I have the F. WR450 no sixth gear. XR650R too old.

KTM 500 EXC??? Is it roadworthy enough to do some I70/I25? Is it reliable enough?

Do they have a plated version of the 450? I thought only the 350 and 500 came with plates. Besides there is virtually no weight difference between the 450 and 500 so I figured why not the 500. Either one will feel like a dog next to our 400lb 110hp ducs

right!

I was looking more at the weight and commonality and the need for HP which is a wash really. All EXCs and Xcw can be plated I believe, they all can be palted with the proper application of money...

Imogene was my favorite. Cannibal Plateau was a close second. Anyone else ride it? My XR650l was a handful in spots but we lumbered through it.
