Thanks Mike, great riding all over the west but Colorado has the altitude and probably why it's so popular. LMK when/if you're going, could send you some routes. New Mexico has great riding too especially northern.

Just finishing 3 weeks in Botswana, Namibia and South Africa including over 1000km of unpaved roads on a rented F800GS with Renedian Adventures.

Twelve riders (including 5 women on their own bikes) and two guides (spoiled). The experience of a lifetime.

Teaser video of two guys doing the Continental Divide ride earlier this year. It has some nice drone footage, Pat (and others) will recognize parts of it.

Now that was a nicely done video! thumbsup Yup, the Black Bear steps are forever etched into my brain. And, the little 250 huffing & puffing on the steep grades seems very familiar also. grin
