Black Betty Ready For Colorado
Was doing some last-minute maintenance on the KLR this morning and thought I'd post a couple of photos of it all farkled out for my trip to Colorado. Additions since Winter in preparation for the trip include the Wolfman tank/crotch warmer bag (rain gear, tire guage, camera, large quantity of 800mg Ibuprofen, etc.) and the HT nerf bar pannier-type bags (tire-changing stuff, assorted maintenance/repair goodies) and the Mefo Explorers.
Was planning on riding out, but my back isn't in the best shape: too many years of carrying an Army rucksack. So, she's riding out in the back of the Toyota and I'll ride when I get there and hope the back holds up.
Plan on riding Trail Ridge Road through Rocky Mountain National Park and also up Pike's Peak as well as highways/byways and dirt roads. Leave in a couple of weeks if I can get across the Missouri river.
