Retirement is Rigorous

I'll be headed out on FRI the 22nd to the Black Hills to Ride the 1880 train and then on to Denver to catch the Forney Transportation Museum. A friend from the Netherlands wants to go so I put my trip off for a few days to accomodate his schedule. I will not be attending WeSTOC this year

Post WeSTOC 9/13/12 - Colorado Monument


Grand Junction.. Colorado Monument... Flaming Gorge

Rode right by the Grand Junction Depot... stopped to take a picture just before Amtrak pulled in. The Depot is the old Rio Grande depot. The Grand Junction Depot is undergoing restoration. Talked to the Engineer a bit... poor guy still works way too many hours.

Made camp at the Firefighters Memorial Campground at Flaming Gorge

UCT post WeSTOC continues


The Ultimate Colorado Tour continues. 2800 miles so far.

Made the decision not to go to Alabama... too far and I would never make it on time

Short 90 mile ride today over to brother Jack's in Pagosa Springs...
the weather closed in behind me, rain, lightening all of it.

I will ride the Million Dollar Highway tomorrow and slowly work my back home... hopefully the weather will be better it was not good up that way today

Post WeSTOC 9/10/12 - It was bound to happen

Link
I tipped Rick's bike over today... it hiccuped just as I was coming to a stop... it stopped suddenly and the pavement was sloped away. No where to put my foot. Very little if any damage. Water from the cooler and fuel from the very full tanks added to the yard sale scene.

Post WeSTOC - 9/9/12


The Tags and I left Leadville this morning about 11am... I ate at the joint next door last night and they could not fix me the eggs Benedict with salmon last night so I ate that this morning. It was a mistake. Went through me without passing go... but made me go and now the part I sit on is sore.Not a good thing when doing 500 mile days on a motorbike. It was cool at 36F this morning anyway so I let thing settle and subside a bit before headed out onto Tennessee and Independence Pass.
