Waking up in Medicine Bow national forest today, air was crisp, fresh and little bit chilly... We wanted to get started but it all takes so much time to get ready... Shower, breakfast, packing, filled up a little oil, checking the route... And when all thats done its time for coffee!
We started with about 20 miles up the mountains on dirt roads. I dont know much about ridin that, but I can tell you an old bike with two people and luggage and sitars easily becomes unsteerable if you chicken out on the throttle around the corners... We made it into Colorado eventually and the views are just great! Snow clad mountains and serpentine roads. Coming around a corner one of those large trucks with oversized load had just tipped over... Police was there and we just hope the driver us ok. Just enough room for us to pass!
It started to rain so much we had to stop for lunch in Granby, but after that we made it over the Loveland Pass. I think the altitude might be the reason I couldnt get the bike to idle up there?
Coming down was just great to, so much views and fun roads...
Stopped for gas in Vail, but then it started to rain so much we had to book a hotel right here. Pricey, but we got updated to a suite so that was a nice surprice! So after a dip in the hot pool and a sauna we call it a day! Tomorrow we will try to get going before noon for once! The plan is maybe to go through Aspen to Bryce Canyon and then Vegas. The grand Canyon will have to wait until after Vegas it seems..
