Hey there, I'll be taking my trusty kLR 650 down to the HU meeting in colorado in july from here in frosty montana. Planning a little exploring in moab U.T while i'm at it. Also heading to the copper canyon meet in mexico in the fall. Anyone out there interested in meeting up along the way or who knows some good desert rides in the U.T area would be very welcome. Have a good one.
Wayne....I will be going to Colorado 2007 from here in Central Alberta. I used the Great Divide route in 2005 and plan to retrace many portions of it. It's a great route. Here's a few pics that may get your wrist turnin http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/tstories/golub/ I can also give you a few ideas about high country routes in Colorado, although one of the best person for this is Steve Green (Esteban on ADV - sorry Grant) or maybe even Chris Ratay (www.Ulimatejourney.com) Anyway get in touch..
Hey Stephen, Thanks for the heads up! I am thinking of doing the trans america trail from Moab back to oregon on my way back from the colorado meet. I'm here in kalispell M.T right below glacier national park so if you want to hook up for some of the ride be sure and let me know.
Lots of KLR riders in Colorado. Try the regional forums on AdvRider, KLRworld.com, and KLR650.net. There's always some of us out and about during the riding season. I'll see you in Silverton at the HU meet!
Wayne here again. I'll also be heading down to the copper canyon meet in oct. I'm in Montana....Anyone in this area looking to head down there hitting up parts of the continental divide trail (or all of it) woul be welcome. I,ve cycled so I have all the maps but never hit it up on my klr. Also if anyone out there is interested in or planning on riding the trans am trail let me know. I'm, up for it anytime from mid june!!!
Wayne, there are a few Colorado riders talking now about riding the Continental Divide Trail on their way to Sipapu, NM for the AdvRider West Fest gathering. I'm sure many of them will be willing to lead/join a ride on the CDT around Silverton. I hesitate to speak for them, of course.
Here's a link to some maps and photos of the various sections of the GD based on a non motorized South to North ride... http://www.topofusion.com/divide/index.php ... things could be hot in the southern sections in July...
