We're off to Colorado this morning. First big trip on the Wing. It's 80 degrees at 0600. I can't wait to get away from this heat!
I'm in Arlington, VA right now (on my Wing, of course), but there are a lot of CO riders on this board who can suggest some world-class riding roads. Let us know if you need some suggestions, nd ride safe!
You have others from close to you leaving this morning also. Dan (and son), Tommyboytx and jhughes56 are leaving at 10. Dan and son will leave from Copperos cove and the other 2 from Arlington. After lunch with me here in Eastland(hardins bbq) they will meet Dan in lubbock. Look for them--a yellow, a white and a blue oh yea and a harley!!
Thanks, how is it over in your neck of the wood, are you getting any smoke?I - 25 between Raton and the Colorado border was closed due to a fire, but it is open now. News reports state that speed limit is dropped to 45 due to smoke and fire equipment on the roadway.
Road is open and ready for travel................
You HAVE to pay attention while riding 550, there is no room for error.I think a motorcyclist went over the side on the 550 between Silverton and Ouray.
:agree: 550 I watched the road and the wife took pictures. saw what I missed later!You HAVE to pay attention while riding 550, there is no room for error.
If you want to look at the scenery, (of which there is a LOT) pull over!
Don't want to hear of anyone (especially from this board) taking the short way to the bottom.
Wish I were with you guys 106 here yesterday! My turn is July 21. Glad the seat mod is doing its job!Made it to Salida yesterday, ahh cooler temps! First impression for a long trip on the Wing... It's great! Compared to my Rocket lll, it's like coming off a bike that had no wind shield at all. Cruising at 80 is seemless for both me and the wife. Great all round touring bike. The seat mod is well worth the $!!
