This is June 07 going from Walden Co. through the pass to get to Poudre Canyon and on to Ft.Collins.
That's my dad's road king and my friend Craig's softail, my Vstrom is behind them [I was leading the way, they said I was crazy to keep going, but hey, they kept following so......]
While we were stopped here, a plow truck went by



Last year I rode from Mn to Morris Il. the day after thanksgiving. It was 490 miles and the temp was 18 deg F when I left.[ it did warm up well into the 20's by midday though]
The ride home 2 days later was MUCH warmer, it was above freezing most of the day!
sorry, no pics of that one, it was too cold, and I stayed on the slab the whole time for safety and it wasn't very scenic.

My wife and I did a whole 5 miles that day.
I've taken a ride every New Years day since 1999, at least 1 mile, no matter what the weather .

Thats my classic RV in the top picture at WUDI. It was a heck of a ride back to Dallas that day. Wrecks were happening all around us.

That trailer works great,I've tugged it over 20,000 miles,it's got over 90,000 on it. It only weighs 65 lbs.,the frame is just 3/4 inch tubing,it's connected to the bike with a tie rod end. A guy in Winnipeg used to make them, it's called a Feathertow trailer.

en route to Crater Lk OR May 22, 2008:

it may not look cold, but a few minutes later looked like this (and 0*C)

The snow started flying about 5 minutes later and the road to Bend was very chilly! Gotta love riding in May!!
