    nope - just a regular '05 GS - weighed in at 860lbs with an almost empty tank just after this photo (truck scales). A full tank puts me over 900 lbs.

    Rode MOAB's White Rim Trail the day before - all 100 miles of it - brutal. 118deg stopped, 108 moving. Didn't carry enough water. Turned into a mental game keeping myself from hitting the button on the SPOT device.

    (did I already post these? lol... can't remember. Hope its not a repeat)

    a little side-shoot at 12k going up into Ouray from Durango on the 550... the 550 isn't for the weak of heart on a bike (or a car). Much rather be heading North than South on it!!! Southbound lane is a sheer drop off with no rail 95% of the way and its a LONG way down and theres no shoulder on the road.

    We did a little ride out through that part of the country this year too!

    Our goal was to complete the CO and UT sections of the TAT, but Bob had a little get off just south and east of Ouray leaving him with a broken hand. He managed to ride out to civilization, and all the way from Ouray to Durango before we called it. I rode the highway all the way back to get the truck.
    Even with the trip cut short we had a great time!

    very nice! Where is California pass at?

    Me and a buddy and the womens went to Tin Cup this summer (late summer) to ride the trails on UTV's... I was bored, but there was definitely a LOT of great scenery. Want to go back on a bike and blast through it.

    I don't know that I would have wanted to be on a big bike there. I guess normally its a pretty easy pass on any DS bike, but the roads were hammered when we were there. They were baseball sized loose gravel top to bottom. There were more than a few switchbacks that I wasn't sure I was going to be able to get my bike slowed down enough to make, and we were both on WR250R's.
