Re: Colorado Adventure V. 2.0

OK, a week in Telluride is quite enough for me. Left early and made it to Montrose little before lunch. After pulling the RV from Silverton to Ouray (550) last week, this trip seemed effortless. Stopped to resupply, take on water and headed on out to Peach Valley. Found it right where it was supposed to be.

Not anther soul in sight... very quiet.

Getting acquainted with the Adobe Badlands -











DIRT, DIRT and ,yes, more DIRT. The traction is way better than it looks like it should be. Going up the steepest hill is fine except for a whole line of smallish woops near the top that do all kinds of fun stuff with the rear. Stay on the gas, dude!

Coming down the steepies is just dragging the rear and grabbing some front every chance you can get away with it.

Re: Colorado Adventure V. 2.0

RG, you are killing me with all of these fabulous posts of yours. That is so differnt from just a little bit south, amazing country.

Thanks again for showing all of us some killer rides, that single track kicked my butt. At least I only fell once and it was within 50 feet of the trail head, so I say it doesn't really count.

Turns out I was fighting a virus the whole time I was in Ouray, luckily I didn't kiss any of you all, so nobody else should have caught it. I am sure I would have been much faster if I was feeling 100%

Thanks again RG. Somewhere I have some pictures and even a little GoPro video I will post up too. I think since my GoPro was pointed forward, it may have caught some glimpses of you in front of me

Re: Colorado Adventure V. 2.0

Still playing on the Adobes near Olathe, Colorado. Crazy as it seems, I can look south and see Mt. Sneffles so clear it seems within 22 range. Considering beautiful Ouray is just on the other side of it - and here I am in the desolate moonscape badlands. Like Michael said, amazing what a difference just a few miles makes.

Lot of local folks come to play here. This place is nothing more than one giant dirtbike playground. It's the wild west of riding. Anything goes. Want to climb that hill? Do it! Local folks are exceedingly friendly to visiting motorcyclists. Turns out there is forest single track out the wazoo just outside of Montrose - ride all the way to Delta if you're so inclined.

Another revelation is the Adobes ain't all dirt... Eagle Valley trail.





See the line here? It's subtle but most surely there.



Local friend Steve on his new Yamaha 250 (in third gear). He throws that thing around like it's a 20" stingray. Amazing how much HP they're getting out of these engines nowadays.

I was feeling pretty cocky about doing this until Steve showed up a made it look like the bunny slope.

Not a place to get off the track...bad juju.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas
