Cool Yep it's Spring but here it is @ 10K altitude

Rode up to Peak to Peak Highway, north of Ward, CO last week. Had to post these...

Last year I dropped my GPZ in this same parking lot as it was covered in snow and I didn't know ice was under the "snow"

Farkled probably WAY too much, but good 20' footer for sure. '96 KLR, '06 HD VROD, (girl friend hauler), '05 HD Electra-Glide, heh it's a HD and I'm old now ;-) and I'm proud of riding a 800+ pound bike at my age :-)

I love any place that requires a sign that says "no shooting"

Yeah, that's about 1/4 way up the canyon where the other pic was from at ~ 9K feet altitude. They don't allow shooting there anymore as some idiot set off a wild fire there last year. I actually was riding by that area and saw the smoke and thought ",....what the f...." and found out later they burned a lot of land, so no more hot loads up there!

Cheers,

John

Ive been wondering how far up I can go, looks pretty clear..Looks fun..

You start with a full bag of luck and an empty bag of experience. Hopefully you fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

I just got back from an afternoon "mental health" day to the same place. I have to get on a conference call with my boss in Shanghai in a few but at least after the ride I don't want to "kill" him anymore ;-) There is something to be said about being able to ride in ~ 25 miles from 5K to 10K miles! The high altitude dynojet kit with the middle sized (of 3) main jets seems to work pretty good with the FMF pipe. Dynojet gave me specific high altitude jetting changes for the kit I just got for my GPZ1100 and I assume it will work just as well. Of course if I ever move back to sea level, the carbs come off of all the bikes, but getting these things to run right up here makes my day.

Gotta Go, pretend I understand Chinese,

Cheers,

John
