Does this get your blood pumping?

Fellow SE riders -

A dual sport rider did some awesome filming in HD. This is an area between Silverton and Ouray - one of my personal favorite riding areas. We plan to go back this summer.

Also - notice his video of Black Bear Pass in the box at the right, which is great route (high pucker factor) down in to Telluride.

Does this get you going?

Good find. Heading there myself starting late june. I thought I'd wreck there on Blackbear getting down to town but I did it clean. That really don't show how steep it is going down from the pass. This dude does excellent video!

Beautiful!!! As pretty as most things I saw down in Mexico and without the intestinal distress. I mountain biked out there in the 90's and this is a great area with cool pubs in most every town.

Too bad the snow takes so long to melt.

I rode all the passes out there 3 years ago. I'll be back there the first week of Sept. My wife rode over Imogene pass 2 up with me a few years back on a KLR. She's tough! Great video.
