I will also be doing a video - YouTube recap as well. That will take a few weeks as I have lots of footage to go over.


Here are some of the best pictures from our journey.

Great pics, brought back some good memories of my first time there, think I recognized a pic of Gunnison Canyon, and love all those twisty roads in the red rocks (rode some but not the far west area near Gateway.

And those lovely alpine roads and views....

Episode 5 is uploaded! Take a journey to my favorite road in Colorado. Breathtaking scenery, great friends and an awesome day! It is the reason we ride! Hope you enjoy it. Don't miss the raw footage video of Colorado 141 video. 16 minutes of greatness.

Episode 6 is uploaded. We had a free day to explore and have some Colorado fun. On a side note I rode the Kawasaki H2. It was a lot of fun, but I will stick with my Versys. Fun Times. Hope you all enjoy.

Ahh Gunnison, one of the first places I saw and enjoyed immensely on my first ride in Colorado. I believe its CO Hwy 92 that runs along the top of the canyon, fun road for sure. Made a really cool side drip up to Taylor Park Reservoir with lots of free range cattle in the road, and the sun going down as we road back to town for dinner.

Haven't been on CO141 in the Gateway area, but some friends did go thru there on a trip and I saw some of their photos.

I agree with the "if money were no object", I'd have a summer home there, and a winter home somewhere in the SE near good roads.

Things have been crazy at work - But I have finally posted Episode 7. This day was probably my favorite of the trip. The weather was awesome and the scenery was breath taking!

Ahh yes, the Million Dollar Highway, US550, Silverton, Durango.... beautiful, even with a bit of rain at the end. (It rained while we stopped in Silverton for lunch when I was there. Turned out it was hailing back on the main road away from town, could see it on the shoulder as we left, and heard stories about it from a person at dinner that night in Durango.)
