The only downside is by the time you get to Walden you are in the middle of NOWHERE! Still a great road if you're out that way.
Thanks! I've adjusted my route for 14 and then on to Riverton. The first day's route was looking boring 'till now.

Pikes Peak, we were escorted off the mountain. Apparently it is "only a race course for one week in July" and I was endangering people

Easy Gas Access

Drill a big hole right here by the Triumph sticker and stuff a rag in it. Then cover it with duct tape and you won't need to take off your tank bag every time you fill up. Way easier.

So the speed limit on Pike's peak is something slow like 30mph. I was not going anywhere near 30mph and they saw me make a few double yellow passes. We stopped to take a pic and the ranger guy came down and started yelling and asking for our licenses. The guy was legitimately off lol. Then they made us leave.
