Weak sauce down south.
I've done the Deer Trail loop twice in the last week. About the same miles and hours.
Heading your way soon.....

If the tag is still stranded by Saturday I'd do a group ride grab.

Don't be a'feared now! This street gives the area it's name!

New Tag.


It seems fitting that this intimidating bike would be parked at the corner of 13th and Fearnow. Should be renamed to FearMeNow Street. lol
In all seriousness, I first saw the place name for this area on my Colorado Gazzeteer about a month ago. Any one know how the area/town/development where this intersection is got its name? Ride on.
(not photoshopped, just had my flash on for some reason)

Good job on the grab, I hope we can get some movement while the weather is still nice.

Bring it north!

Like the bike! VERY intimidating.

Does a good job of keeping the cold air off except for the lower legs.

Good grab!

Does anyone know why this area is called Fearnowville? I do not, but am intrigued by the name.

Thanks, 60Pan, looking forward to playing more.

I like your taste in bikes, snaggletooth374. I have a Dr350 also.

60pan you are right, that is a rough part of town.

I had a PC 800 once. Ugliest bike there is when you see it from behind. Made me think of Queen and Fat Bottomed Girls. Gutless, efficient, capable grocery getter with that awesome clamshell trunk.

I called it my Miata.

Pc800

Yes, it is a mildly boring bike to look at and ride but is appropriate for a rider of my vintage.

It has been dropped and broken a few times with fiberglass scars to prove it. And it leaks a little fluid when it runs hard; not as fast as it used it to be. Like owner like bike, I say. It also has a big trunk. No comment.
