Had an awesome time. Thank you to all my friends who showed up. Most are the same guys that travel the country and all have a common interest. What cool people all these Tenere folks are !!!
This was also the first trip out to Gateway, CO. If you have not ridden the canyon roads out to Gateway I highly suggest you add this to your list. I think others will agree. It will take your breath away. Absolutely spectacular!!!!!
It’s also fun riding on the edge of these canyon roads in the pouring rain as we did!!!! Lol. That will make your heart beat a little faster. Lol lol.
Had a great time and I really enjoyed traveling with my son-in-law. Seeing the previous posts, we missed out on meeting some of you which is our loss. Everyone we did meet was very welcoming of us first timers. We were the undesirables that KOA put in the “Harley section”.
The Ouray area was new to me, still just blown away by the scenery.
I learned a few things on this trip. 1) A $25 tent won’t keep the rain out.
2) My skills weren’t up to Yankee Boy trail. Dropped the bike, ashamed to admit it, three times in a washed out section of the trail. This is when you find out just how heavy the S10 is. Thankfully I was able to keep it upright coming down in the pouring rain.
3) AltRider engine guards are worth every cent. I’m leaving the small scuff on the bars to remind me of my skill set.
Biggest regret was not riding with you folks that knew the area better. Hope to remedy this next year!
Heck, it was worth the trip just seeing the mods on Tabasco’s bike. He has some amazing talents.
Actually that was my son-in-law. He does have some interesting aircraft stories. My job (recently retired after 42 years!) was a little less interesting. I worked with a non profit animal shelter.
Believe me, I’m already looking forward to the next gathering. And thanks for sharing the campfire.
