Moving on from Kremmling to Salida our route took us high above the resort town of Breckenridge by way of Boreas pass. Dark clouds loomed overhead for most of the day but, aside from a short shower about midday, we managed to avoid any real rain. South of the Boreas pass, the route involved a […]

Aug 02, 2013 View Comments by

Our route out of Rawlins took us thru Aspen Alley just north of the Colorado border. This peaceful place where Aspen trees line each side of the road caused us to pause and take in the view.  Each state we have traversed has had its own unique look. Most of the time the changes come […]

Riding Switzerland in Colorado

Apr 18, 2013 View Comments by

Born in Japan but taking its name from Africa’s south central Sahara, the Yamaha Super Ténéré is the catalyst that is attracting a group of riders to the appropriately nicknamed “Switzerland of America.” Before I get into the details of the event, I want to emphasize the motorcycle neutral aspect of this free weeklong event […]

Opening Day: Play Ball! Nope . . . Let’s Ride!

Apr 11, 2013 View Comments by

Baseball Season is upon us and that can only mean one thing—less people on the roads when I am out riding. Don’t get me wrong, I like baseball, but what I really like is that Coors Field can remove over 50,000 fans from the road during each game. However, you can’t always count on that […]

Jan 31, 2013 View Comments by

There is a place where the pavement ends and the dirt begins,  There the rocks are large and inviting and the peaks above oh so exciting,  The air beckons and the throttle opens and the pavement ends and excitement beckons . . . (Inspired by Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein) The poem above was inspired by […]

Finding the Time for Adventure

Jan 10, 2013 View Comments by

Driving to school, work, dance lessons, music classes, grocery shopping, etc—and those are just my activities—and then there are all the kids’ activities.
