Re: Colorado passes by 3 couples

Really enjoyed the pics & comments! Lots great scenery.

Bishops castle is a real hoot to see. My last visit I had my wife with me. It was the only time I started valuing my life enough to NOT walk on some of those iron walkways. While Mr. Bishop has accomplished much, I am very leary of walkways, platforms and balls that move with me on them. Like you, I also wonder why some things have been left undone for so long when it appears they could be easily and/or quickly finished. I guess when one man works in one area so long, maybe he just decides to move on to something new... just losing interest in that one area?

Bike Question:
I saw a KLR, a DRZ, and not certain of the third bike. Did any of you rejet the carbs to prepare for that altitude? I have a 09 KLR with jet kit installed and have wondered if it would perform OK in high mountain passes as is.

A KLR, DRZ400S and a DRZ400SM (mine). I'm not sure about the KLR but maybe Chris will see this post and let you know. The SM is completely stock except for a K&N filter. It runs bad at that altitude but all I had to do was remove the plastic side cover which is also the cover for the air box. For some reason, the S model ran fine. His bike is completely stock, including the filter. Before I got the DRZ, I had a 225 Yamaha and I had to go down a couple of sizes on the main jet to get it to run good.

Great story and pics. I will write up my wife's and my adventure into the west when I get home.

I look at some of the "roads" and think how trusting our wives are to sit back there and hang on.

Re: Colorado passes by 3 couples

Ya'll did happen to keep a track file on your journey did ya? I just got back from the area on a pavement run on my Bandit last week and want to go again next year on the KLR. Have not been to the high passes in seems like 10 to 15 years.

I'm technically challenged and haven't figured out how to use a GPS. Sorry.
