Re: Four corners and more 2017

If you're headed north on the Million Dollar Hwy (CO550) to Silverton and Ouray, take the time to jog a bit east on 50 to see Black Canyon of the Gunnison. It's definitely worth the stop. Then ride 92 north across the dam at Blue Mesa reservoir and make a stop in Delta, City of Murals.

If you're heading west toward Glen Canyon, there's a beautiful campground right on the shore of the lake at Hall's Crossing. Spend the night, take in the stars, then ferry across to Bullfrog the next day and ride toward Capital Reef, Arches and Bryce.

Re: Four corners and more 2017

Last year I hit Pike's Peak as my first stop in CO. Stayed in Woodland Park at Diamond Campground that night and had a great time chatting up several other motorcyclists around a campfire. I highly recommend the campground. Busy if that's not your thing, but safe, secure, and clean showers.

67 North leaving Woodland Park is very scenic and low/no traffic out that way. It leads up to Decker's Corner for awesome food and coffee at a really scenic/river overlook.

Enjoy! Super jealous!!

Re: Four corners and more 2017

Hmmm, I must have missed a notification somewhere along the line...

What's the story on the purty Beemer? Is that a rental? Or a replacement for the V-Max?

Vmax is gone and I'm upgraded to
F800R for me out west bike I'm half owner with my sister!! It's a 2012 and had 5500 miles on it I like it mostly except the seat sucks (I believe it's a low seat so lee can ride it) need to but a high seat plus jel!
This small expandable bags with a small tail bag works real nice!

So after pikes peak we explored a little local roads then went through crippple creek did a tourist thing or 2
And rode to Montrose And a little Vids from the higher Side of things

Slow up

Slow Down


So after pikes Peak we headed down route 67 toward criple creek and next will be some videos from
this area















After checking out the local jail that was in service into the 90's here are some more roads we traveled heading west with a turn around girls do anyways do gravel but they did to see black canyon after riding on route 92 basically by ourselves







More of 92
