Today was my first “real” day back on the motorcycle after the April 6th accident. ‘Twas nice! I went up Ouray, Colorado, County Roads 5, 7, and 9. Sadly, the GoPro camera didn’t work, which I later traced to a … Continue reading

Here’s a little treat—fall color in Ouray County, Colorado, on a little side road tucked away at the south end of Ouray County Road 5 (after entering the Uncompahgre National Forest, it becomes Forest Road 852). The road to Moonshine … Continue reading
