Good guess, but it is Highway 137 in New Mexico. That road is a bit remote. It starts just south of Sitting Bull Falls.

Funny you say that because a 4WD dude drove his car through a route just north of that picture. This is something that you might consider with your Tenere. You could probably use a TKC80 tire on the front only for added stability.

On an interesting note, the song “You're so Vain” with “with clouds in my coffee" as a refrain actually features Mick Jagger of Rolling Stone fame as the background vocalist in the song written by Carly Simon. If you listen closely, you can hear him say “You're so vain, you probably think this song is about you”...

With so many metaphorical ideas, the concept of “clouds” are a favorite theme for many songwriters and poets. White puffy clouds can represent peacefulness and beauty or even elation as in “being on cloud nine” or “having your head up in the clouds”....or on the other side of the spectrum, darker clouds can represent gloominess, danger, sadness or being in some sort of turmoil. Somewhere in the middle can be like being in a dream state, mental fogginess or a feeling of uncertainty as you alluded to.

Now back to posting more pictures of cloud "computing" and songs too. <lol>

Looking back on CLOUDS in my coffee. Even the bible in Hebrews 12:1 uses clouds, Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses... Also in Hebrew culture the man makes the woman coffee in the morning....Hebrews Clouds in my coffee? Heb.12:1 IMHO is speaking of a heavenly city and the running of the race to it's gates. (metaphorically ??)

Check out Numbers 11:25, Psalms 18:11 among others OT references...the Hebrews refer to it as a means - a covering - because clouds cover the sky. The word is used as a symbol of the Divine presence, as indicating the splendour of that glory which it conceals. With a different emphasis, if you look at Jude 1:12, "cloud without rain" is a saying that denotes a man who does not keep his promise or lacks in integrity. Then there is the Shekinah Glory found in the Book of Exodus which is said to have resembled a cloud.

You also find this same meaning via the religious symbols of other traditional cultures too.

Re: Clouds in my coffee

You sure have hit on some of the better roads of Colorado and Arkansas areas. But, there are so many more a person could never do them all. I hope your posts and pictures get more people on the road to see these fantastic roads and scenery.

Re: Clouds in my coffee

Forgive me if someone one asked this already but how miles do you have on that bike?
What camera do you use? Great shots.

At under 35,000 miles the primary improvements on my Yamaha MT-09 has been - an ECU remap, better springs, aftermarket seat, and an improved windscreen. It has had the CCT recall performed. The valves were adjusted at that time also. The valves were a bit tight on the exhaust side.

The bike overall has been very reliable. The triple engine is sheer delight in terms of a wide, usable power band. I tried sitting on the FJ09 and did NOT like it. Even though it is only 65 pounds heavier, it felt much porkier than mine.

My cell phone is a Samsung Galaxy purchased in 2012. I have been reticent in upgrading to a much better Samsung smart phone due to the fact that my Galaxy version can have it's batteries easily replaced. I have gone through about four different power packs since I purchased the phone. Duracell sells a extra large battery pack that replaces the OEM one for up to 50 percent more battery life. I also use a rubber eCase to carry the phone in the rain. It is clear, so I can still manipulate the keyboard and not worry about getting the device wet.

The most comprehensive resource I have seen for discovering routes in Colorado has to be the book called: The Complete Guide to Motorcycling Colorado: The Definitive Reference for ALL the Best Roads, Rides, and Tips

It was written by Steve Farson, a longtime Colorado resident and adventure rider of it's roads. He even provides a helmet cam view on a dedicated web site of almost each route. He includes enough detail that the rider can determine if it has the desired appeal.

Re: Clouds in my coffee

The Cloud

Written by Percy Bysshe Shelley

I bring fresh showers for the thirsting flowers,
From the seas and the streams;
I bear light shade for the leaves when laid
In their noonday dreams.
From my wings are shaken the dews that waken
The sweet buds every one,
When rocked to rest on their mother's breast,
As she dances about the sun.
I wield the flail of the lashing hail,
And whiten the green plains under,
And then again I dissolve it in rain,
And laugh as I pass in thunder.
