No time to write a ride report right now, but my friend made a video if interested. The Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route is a must ride in my opinion.

I need to look at the map to see where exactly this water crossing is again, but if you're riding this route from south to north, be aware that this is really deep and fuel is a long way back. We had no choice but to cross because my friend's XR650L was nearly out of gas, but once across, a guy pulled up and said that the tow truck had just left with a guy and his BMW that had fried his electronics and camped there the night before. Both of our bikes died but luckily restarted. Here's some raw video of it >>

Adventure at its best!



Thanks for some great video. Those uphill sections where the bike slid backwards and eventually went over must have been exciting - I know the viewer really doesn't get the right perspective!

Next time try some good music on the edited clips - had to mute the noise!

Ride safe and look forward to more reports.
