Double Iron Butt Ride
Short version: Rode from SF to Ft. Collins Colorado on a 3 day ride, and then back on a 2 day ride. I managed 2 1000 mile days on this trip, and a now sporting popeye-arms to prove it. (Note to self, I really need to upgrade the bars for better positioning)
Friday, May 20, and I headed out from San Francisco to Porterville to meet up with some friends.
Saturday, I leave at dark o clock to Vegas
and the storm clouds are gathering on the horizon
So I bomb through Vegas, take it up the Virgin River Gorge (I love being able to say that, kinda like I love being able to say that I emptied my tank and refilled in beaver. What? I'm talking about motorcycle riding... what?) ;)
But once I reach Hwy 70, it's all worth the weather:
I reached 1000 Miles just before Glenwood Springs, so I pulled in and dropped to sleep at the only hotel with vacancy.
I toodled around Glenwood Springs, CO the next day to see this:
and of course, make this climb
it was a good day for riding
so I took Hwy 6 to Golden
so I could watch rafters
and worked my way to this place in Ft. Collins.
Will post the return trip later today.
