A really cool single track road that I went on today. It was only one way and once you were on it you were not allowed to turn back. Really cool.

Finally conquered Pikes Peak like I wanted. I was feeling dizzy from the thin air. I asked if that was common at the gift shop and they said it was. I felt like I couldn't think straight sometimes. I can only imagine what those guys that do Everest without oxygen feel like.

A good day of riding on Pikes Peak. I would really like to see them race on it. There's some tight hairpin turns on it. Be cool to see how they drag knee through them.

Thanks for the update!
Nice pictures, glad to see it's going well so far.


LOLed at the "Ex-Con" sticker! We are beginning to see more of that, t-shirts etc.
Pretty funny.
Be careful out there and keep the pics coming...

Shelled out wheel bearing anyone? Front started to shimmy a little and the brakes didn't work right. Could have been a worse ending. Pays to have stuff checked out as soon as it starts.

Sweet!
How did you deal with the wheel bearing issue? Tell us the story.
Also, that church almost looked like it was miniature, was it a full sized building?

Just feet away from Buffalo yesterday. After this there was a whole herd coming down the road. I got on my bike and kept really still and they passed on both sides of me. My heart was pumping 100mph. The highlight of the trip so far.

I was lucky on the wheel bearing. I did Pikes Peak the day before, so good thing it didn't go out then. I started to get a slight shimmy in the steering and the brakes wouldn't work right. Good thing I was only 2 miles from a dealership and they were able to take care of it in a couple of hours and sent me on my way. On the way to the dealership the shimmy got worse as did my pucker factor. LOL!

The Church is a full size building. I does look small in the picture. I thought it was cool and had to stop and take a pic.

Wow, this sounds like a trip I would love to take also, from Houston. I drove through parts of Canada a few years ago. I went from Seattle to Edmonton and it was beautiful.

Keep the pics coming and continue to be safe!

Been having trouble updating here in Canada. I will post up some pics in the next couple of days.

Rode from Banff all the way to Hope British Columbia in the cold and rain. Worse day of riding I've probably ever done. I had to make up a little time to keep on schedule.
