I like the lattitude 40 maps myself.

But the real question is what kind of oil do I use for the high country?

We've already covered tires for him, so why not address oil? You know at higher altitudes, liquids thin out, so...

I'm kind of partial to these maps:

If you want to learn to ride high mountain jeep trail and you need Big_John and a couple of others to coach you along.....and you want to test and push your skills.....and you want to use that Adventure bike for what it was intended and designed for......


...this ride is for you!!!


Newbies get first dibs at the slots.

I believe it does count for something......something from the spinning-wheel-of-death ....... something like Mob rule, drink it, eat it, etc.....

Maybe Rabbot and the Todd have some in their pockets.
Hey Todd and Rob,

If we team up and lead another amazing TT&R ride, can I have a sip of your famous shine this year ? ....

benchmark colorado for the big big picture
http://www.benchmarkmaps.com/

Lat 40 and Nat Geo both have larger scale maps of the area but that means less area covered. Larger scale is much better detail however.

I'd bring that Lat 40 map I posted and the Nat Geo one above and call it good. Big & long ADV riders will prefer the Lat 40 and dirtbikes on the jeep roads closer to silverton will prefer the Nat Geo.

Just did black bear today (rr update coming). One of the switchbacks on the way down was impassible by 4x4's because of the heavy rain last night caused a huge deposit of sand and rocks. I was just able to sneak past.
