Colorado loop

The route through the San Juan mountains bounded by Colorado routes 62, 550, 145, and 160 pretty much mesmerized me the first time I visited in 1976. I've gone back at least ten times. Mesa Verde and Telluride are interesting side trips too. Take a day for the narrow guage train trip out of Durango.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

I and a couple buddies are currently planning a trip like this for this summer.. We've ridden out there several times on streetbikes, but some of the jeep passes are too much for a touring bike, so we're "Hauling" KLR650's out there this time..

We figure we'll set up a base camp and ride off from there. With driving out, we can hump straight through, switching drivers, rather than doing 50/50 to ride out 1300 miles to the Telluride area, and eating up a set of tires doing so.. :shock:

I also really want to explore the U.P. this summer. With Lake Superior being only 5-6 hours from home, I have zero excuses..

Pat, you're also very close to some fantastic riding in Southwestern Wisconsin, Northwestern IL.. I try to do this area as a dayride a couple times a month.
