    Grand Mesa Colorado GS ride... Hard Travelin'

    I met some online friends in Grand Junction Colorado for a little mini rally...

    Coming from the dry, flat, hotlands of Oklahoma City, i headed out across Oklahoma, the Texas panhandle, then Northern New Mexico (awsome) and then up the million dollar highway to Grand Junction. The whole trip was amazing to me... i saw so much wonderful country it was over whelming!

    Here is the first video i put together, it is off a GS ride on top of Grand Mesa... I'm filming and riding an F650GS twin with Tourance tires... I kept up with the big boys on thier F800GS's just fine... Though i wish i had some different tires... the video doesn't show all the slipping and sliding the bike is doing underneth me...

    Only 5 minutes long... take a look...

    Peter, You looks like you had a blast on the Grand Mesa, around those lakes and through those huge stands of Aspen trees, along with the memories gathered from the ride to CO, to time with online friends in Grand Junction.

    Looks like a great trip. I was on Grand Mesa last month mostly on pavement. I'd love to explore more of Colorado on dirt. Good job on the video!

    There are two roads in life; the twisty one is vastly more fun.

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    The first song is Woody Guthrie "Hard Traveling"

    The instrumental is by some friends of mine, an all girl group based out of Lawrence Kansas, called MAW

    I'm lost. I've gone to find myself. If I get back before I return. Please ask me to wait.
