Was a great trip. When you coming back?
sounds like fun, but heading back east during that time for work.

Touring by motorbike, more than any other mode of transportation, allows us to be more fully engaged with people, culture and the natural world - especially the bugs.

Knobbies required, or DS tires up to snuff?

Knobbies are optional. I'll have mine fairly well worn out by then. Lawnmowers never get very good traction anyway.

Hey Mark,
I'm putting a small suggestion for the 2014 version. Ride the southern part of the state. Maybe start in Gunnison/CB and head south from there. I'd say using Steamboat as a start point needs a reboot. Joe & his ribs are moving on out as they say. Not that your routes are not good, just the opposite, but some fresh southern roads are needed. I know you know some.
Bill

I will continue south this year with Tbob and any others who want to explore some more. I know a lot of people won't be able to continue due to work and other commitments. I try and do a new mix of routes every year but some like Kebler Pass are hard to pass by. I'll see what I can do to include more southern routes next year within the weekend. We might need to enlist another inmate in the central mountains for Thursday night's festivities

I think I'm in, been wanting to do a Rockies Regional Ride with you guys for so long!!!! If I can get the wife on board I think this would be a good one to pop our ADV cherries on .

Consider us almost definitely maybe in! 2-up on a Wee Strom.

edit: errr...I just saw the "2up doable, if you have the skills" disclaimer. What kind of skills do I need, like Boreas pass 2 up skills or like Georgia Pass 2 up skills. Top section of Georgia Pass on the Wee Strom with stock tires is about as skillful as I can get right now with a passenger and even that may be pushing it.

Dunkley and Ripple Creek passes were covered in nice deep gravel early this summer. Mostly annoying but may be a bit squirmy two up/no knobbies.

Seems like they have been doing that every year lately.... If it not good by 1st week in September, then Mark might axe Ripple Creek from the route.
Ben & Julie rode 2 up chasing me into Trapper's Lake Lodge for lunch a few years ago in the deep marbles and had a hell of a time!! Rode out to Meeker for pavement all the way back around to Steamboat!!!
