Brother Randy on his 2017 CRF250Rally, bicycle buddies Gary and Mike both on 2017 CRF250L Hondas and I am still on my 2000 TW200. Can a TW with 59,700 miles on it climb Pike's Peak? Yes. Can it follow the Divide Ride from Colorado Springs to Pie Town New Mexico without the engine letting go and passing 60,000 miles? Yes. Can it make it to Moab, Utah with now over 61,000 on it? Yes, but have used a quart of oil in the past 1,300 miles. Does an air horn work at 14,000+ feet (4,267 meters)? No. More later. Spending a few days in Moab. Then heading towards the interior of Colorado.
It won't be greed which destroys America. It will be envy.
Man who runs in front of motorcycle gets tired. Man who runs behind motorcycle gets exhausted.

That is awesome, sounds like a hell of an adventure!
Where are you staying? If you need to change oil or do a little work on the bike let me know, you can use my garage.
P.S. make sure to drink plenty of water while you're here, most people don't drink enough. Have a good trip.
Bad luck... sure would have liked to have met up with you. We were at the Bowen Motel. Left early Sunday and rode the back way to Gateway CO. Rain left the road muddy and slick. We're at Ridgway CO up in the mountains at a stealth campsite now.

Yeah, it's too bad. But I don't check the forum everyday and didn't know you were here.
We didn't get any more than a brief sprinkle of rain here.
Enjoy the rest of your trip.
We're in Ouray now. Set up camp early so we can explore. Any t-dubbers in the area?
