Wow, a dude in Colorado missing the riding in PA? I've fantasized about moving from PA to Colorado for the riding out THERE.
What am I missing? Aren't you in "weekend trip" striking distance of Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, AZ/NM desert, etc. - not to mention sitting in the Rockies on the Continental divide?

No doubt the riding is fantastic in CO.
But seeing all the photos you guys post brings back great memories of getting my two wheeled feet wet in my home state.

The New Tag

Enough of this talk about Colorado. Time for the new PA tag.

This house was built in 1683! They don't have houses this old in Colorado.

Should be an easy find. And it's not in Chester

OK, I have to say that I have not had my bike out west yet, but from what I have seen while out there in a cage, I prefer PA for every day type riding. The big roads are truly epic, but the everyday roads (that I saw) were nothing special.

The big difference is that back east, the roads tend to follow the natural terrain a lot more than in the west. In PA, a back road will follow a stream along the valley floor. Out west, they just go straight down the valley. Also, eastern roads, on averafe, are much more technical. Blind turns, tighter and more rapid direction changes etc etc etc.

Of course, that is one of the great things about this country. So many different types of riding without having to worry about any border crossings.

Tag

The new tag.


The clue.


Till the 31st of October, the main gate is open till 9:00 PM. If you get there while the facility is closed, a photo of the closed gate and one of the two large signs by the main road will do for the tag.

I'm dropping the Philly tag elsewhere on this property, so this is a two for one opportunity.

Nice triple, Doc! If Barlow gets a tag up soon, maybe you can make it four.
