We passed

one of these, a national historic landmark.



Hell, what's the big deal, we've got two on our roof.



They're all over NYC.





At the pass, we saw the railroad history.





We didn't stay long.

On the way down



More fantastic colors,



more healthy people,



and more traffic, but all in all pretty awesome.



We considered our options for camping, and they were all around 10K elevation. It was gonna be a chilly night. At Kenosha Campground, Scott arranged for Julie to meet us in their pick-up.

We hustled

to get all our camp chores done before Julie showed up. Collected firewood, made some vittles,



We had a great time hanging out by the campfire that night, but indeed it was chilly. I think Scott & Julie ended up sleeping in the pickup truck.



We were trying to make a good impression on Julie so she'll ride with us on M11.

I think maybe that the "meltdowns" will be minimized with the new addition of a little Gold box that sets under the bars on Blueberry and Bumblebee!!!!

Looks like good days

on the road. I would have liked the first day, but maybe not the second. It would have been very challenging on the GS.

Thanks for the photos and videos....

Steering dampener? who needs a dampener?

Actually is really good for smaller bikes with larger wheels and lighter front ends...
