  1. Today
  2. Added and updated with off-road information!
  3. Yesterday
  4. After the Black Canyon area, the topography flattens out and the ride gets a bit sucky. We headed over the Grand Mesa and onto I-70 to blast the last 250 miles to home. 3 days, two nights and 1,300 miles. A nice ride.
  5. Last day of the ride and we need to beat feet back towards home. Took a detour to ride along the Black Canyon from Sapinero to Delta...
  6. Rode up to Ouray and back on Route 550 - just because it's a fun road- and then back to the Marriott for more beers...
  7. Not a lot happening in Silverton when we got back. Typical old mining town. Biggest business in town is the side by side rental place. Got some grub though...
  8. Started to get late again, so we turned around and headed back...
  9. Scenery was hard to beat though...
  10. Had to ride through this past winter's avalanche area to continue onward. Smelled like fresh cut pine as we rode through. Snow was brown from all the dust that has blown onto it...
  11. Didn't have to go far to find some mines...
  12. Ate crappy pizza and got drunk (another typical night for me) and then crashed out at the Marriott for the night. Slept good after a 500 mile day of riding. Next day and we're up and head towards Silverton for some more gold mine exploring....
  13. After Creede, it was getting late and a bit dark, so we hauled ass down 149 to 160 West into Durango for the night..
  14. We have miles and miles of roads like this to ride on in Colorado. I never get tired of them...
  15. The ore house here is freakin' huge! You can just imagine what a pain in the ass it was to haul all of that timber up there and then build this thing. Gold ore was loaded out of the House and into trains or horse drawn carts via the huge chutes at the bottom of the house....
  16. The Bachelor Gulch Mine was a big operation back in it's day...
  17. Creede is an old gold mining town that got it's start in the 1860's. There are lots of abandoned gold mines nearby and we thought it'd be rude not to check some out...
  18. Next, we stopped in Creede with hopes of finding some chow. But the tourist season is pretty much over now and most places were closed. Had a coke and sat on a bench on the street for a break...
  19. Lake City is a fly fishing / tourist town without much else there. Continued on 149 south of town and stopped to look back as 149 climbed the mountains....
  20. My buddy Dave and his Wife were in town 2 weeks ago and we took a 3 day cruise down to Durango. Railed along Route 149 to Lake City - great road with little or no traffic on it, follows a creek / gorge for a good portion of the way....
  21. Nah, just a church on a hill side. It's just a couple of miles from my house, but I have no idea how you get up there. Pretty cool location though.
  22. What is that, a monastery?
  23. Riding through some of last winter's avalanche damage....
  24. Last week
  25. Nothing too gnarly but a decent mixture of paved and dirt / rock. Only did about 100 miles in total, but it was good to get out on the scooter for a bit...
  26. I had every intention of going to work today, but didn't. Instead I took a cruise around the 'hood.....
  27. Yup, another Eric here. My Mom called me Earache as a kid. Dunno why.

    • This mirror is the product of much frustration- I spent years breaking other designs and wondering what was going on behind me on the road. Eventually, when I dropped my bike and found myself buying two(!) new master cylinders as a result, I decided it was time to make a really good mirror, one that would function well as a mirror, and also protect the bike (and me) from damage.

    • Time, 05:15 h. My alarm clock rings and it’s time for me to get my breakfast in my stomach, take a shower and jump on my bike! The 1,5 hour drive to the TT race track in Assen took me to the TT junior track and the CRT Holland training ground for the CRE track training. Here I met with 37 fellow Suzuki riders. Greeting us where the men and women from Suzuki Motors Holland who set up this training day.
