2075 miles thru TX NM CO

Santa Fe to Durango to Gunnison to Snowmass to Creede to Red River to Ruisoso

Only averaged 320/day mileage. Got 40 to 48 mpg on my 113ci RGU.

Black Canyon of the Gunnison and Independence Pass were my favorite roads.

Saw 1 RG the first three days then from Aspen to Buena Vista they were everywhere.

Great trip great riding and great fellowship!!!

Sounds like you had an incredible trip! Glad it was safe and fun for ya', you can't beat this area for riding. I put in 800 miles this weekend and never left Colorado.

Probably a stupid question, but as you traveled thru Buena Vista, on your way to Independence Pass, did you see a Black Cherry Road Glide sitting in front of the lumberyard on the north end of Buena Vista?? That was me if you did! I ride it everyday.
