First ride of the year
on: January 05, 2020, 06:29:46 AM
My wife and I spent the holiday at our place in the mountains, no way I'm riding the bike up there for a while...



We came home yesterday and the weather in Denver was good enough for a ride, so I took off for the office to retrieve a couple late-arriving Christmas gifts.  On the way back home, I took a short detour up deer creek canyon/Ken Caryl valley and stopped for a quick photo op.  This place is literally 6 miles from my house. 





It might be a while until the weather is warm enough to ride on a weekend!

I'm envious you can ride in January.  Nice pics too.  Thanks for sharing.

I too was able to get out of the City and get my first ride of the year in. Albeit the ride was not on my Big Versys but on my FJR. The big Versys gets to go out next time when the roads are a bit cleaner.  Pictures are along Lake Gulch Rd. South East of Castle Rock




Finally got out this year for a short ride, Just 210 miles with the FJR. Only took a couple of pics as I was more interested in riding.
