I lost my riding buddy. No he didn't pass away, he sold his Tenere and bought 650 Suzuki Burgman scooter of all things. I think he's going to regret that decision and will eventually come back to the fold. Anyways, anybody in the Denver front range wanting to do the ST Elmo loop this Thursday (9-16) Friday (9-17) or Saturday (9-18)? The ride will entail Hancock Pass, Cumberland Pass and Tin Cup Pass. There are some rocky sections, but are doable on the Tenere's. It's not much in mileage, but is technical and can be slow going. It will be a full day ride from Denver.
