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!

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................

We just got back, only a short 3 day trip, but still nice. Much warmer around Durango, Silverton, Ouray, and Telluride than I expected. Unfortunately, I think a motorcyclist went over the side on the 550 between Silverton and Ouray. We saw a lot of activity, a skidmark right up to the edge and several bikers standing around. Down the road, rescue and police were en route. I didn't check any news sources to see what happened.

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.

Over 500 miles today and temps up to 106. The radiator vents can sure cook your shins even with the Baker Wings at those temps. Off to Salida from Clayton N.M. tomorrow.:)

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 $!!
