The road surface was not the best and I have to say that I am spoiled as the road surface here in Arkansas is awesome. Colorado gets a few more FEET of snow than we do. Hard to keep the roads great up there, but the views more than make up for the surface.

I have 2-3 jackets from rev-it and love them all. The all mesh Rev It GTR works very well and it good up to around 90-95 after that all jackets suck. haha

Thanks for the kind words.

Episode 5 is uploaded! Take a journey to my favorite road in Colorado. Breathtaking scenery, great friends and an awesome day! It is the reason we ride! Hope you enjoy it. Don't miss the raw footage video of Colorado 141 video. 16 minutes of greatness.

)Breathtaking scenery Jerry, I can see why you guys love it so much, thanks, again, for sharing

I have a couple of questions - in the first video there are two guys sat on the kerb (4,59) who are they  :question: 

And at around (11,02) there is a grid on the road, .... I presume there is wildlife to be negotiated  :question: 

The quality of your films is outstanding, no doubt due to your editing skills....which editing suite do you use  :question:   and also a great helmet cam, which model is that  :question:  ...sorry if I asked you those questions before

Keep it coming   :37:

Thanks again for the kind words. Like I said I am glad someone is watching them. Here are the answers to the questions, continue to send them to me, I have no problem answering them.

I had never even noticed the two people sitting down in the clip at 4:59. You are correct about the 11:02 mark. That is a cattle guard. It is used to keep free range cattle from getting into the wrong places.

I use Corel Video editing studio: https://www.videostudiopro.com/en/products/videostudio/pro/
It was cheap and it is easy to use. Might need to upgrade in the future but for now it works well.



I have two cameras, I use the Sena Pro10C: https://www.sena.com/product/10c-pro as my main helmet cam. It allows me to use it as an intercom and it takes decent video and records the audio. It is a good solution that puts out a decent video.



I also use a GoPro Hero Black 7: https://shop.gopro.com/cameras. It takes much better video and I am working on a good audio solution. I would love to film with it more as a moto vlogging camera.



Thanks again for taking the time to watch and ask questions. I really do appreciate it.

Episode 6 is uploaded. We had a free day to explore and have some Colorado fun. On a side note I rode the Kawasaki H2. It was a lot of fun, but I will stick with my Versys. Fun Times. Hope you all enjoy.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching your latest video Jerry and seeing you guys also thoroughly enjoying yourselves.

I guess that you won't be changing the Versys for an H2 any time soon  :008:  although it must be the kind of bike that is a whole lot of fun  :028:

Things have been crazy at work - But I have finally posted Episode 7. This day was probably my favorite of the trip. The weather was awesome and the scenery was breath taking!

Excellent Jerry & Jamie.....thanks for sharing your holiday, the scenery is spectacular, and you are right that there's little or no room for error at 2.22 on the video  :exclamation:

Having ridden all those roads multiple  times over the last 30 years, and have seen the changes in conditions and traffic, your videos were great and have motivated me to find the time and GO RIDE them again.  Will have to wait until I get back from my Euro Moto Trip later this month though. Glad you were able to make it out here.
