Its winter in Colorado

Friend from Colorado Springs was a bit late getting back from Moab Sunday and is currently parked at the Eisenhower tunnel. I-70 is closed from Denver to Burlington going east. 70's by the weekend, so the riding will go on, just not today.

Saw on the evening news tonight,

Hey that is a bike trailering a bike, I wonder if that ok with tmg (Tom Galo)

I would imagine that some from the RA Rally (held in Tennessee) may have got in the mix as well.

Looks like he'd be better off with the second bike towing the first . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Mark Atwell is the owner of this GW 1800 and the DR 650. Here are his comments after seeing the picture,


"In case anyone was wondering, it actually tows pretty well. We were running 75-80 (gps) on I-70 and higher at times. If curves are smooth they're not bad, but you sure don't want ripples or bumps in curves. I did pass a bike or two on US 50 on Friday and kind of wonder what they thought watching me go by... :-)."
