Pics from my Colorado-Banff ride

So I got home from a 15 day ride east through Yosemite NP, Nevada, Utah..Bryce Canyon NP, Capitol Reef NP, Natural Bridges NP, Mesa Verde NP, Colorado....Durango, Silverton, Ouray, Aspen, Wyoming...Garnd Tetons NP, Yellostone NP, Montana, Canada....Lake Louise, Banff NP, IceFields, Idaho, Washington, Oregon and finally the northern Sierras and home.

Rode with my brother on his RT and met a friend riding from Arkansas on his Kawasaki.
5,266 miles

The GT ran well even in the rain and a hail storm in Colorado.
It did just up and die 5 times when I came into a town and quickly went to idel.
Also had one instance of the high uncontrolled revving even though I had the airbox warrranty fix before I left.

I highly recommend a ride out west for those who haven't experienced this great counrty.

Enjoy
Banff Ride '08

Re: Pics from my Colorado-Banff ride

In your pix, are you wearing summer gear or winter gear? I know it's cool on top of the mountains but at the bottom it's pretty hot.

Re: Pics from my Colorado-Banff ride

I did that trip basically in reverse last year. Starting in Alberta and working my way south. When we went up to Independence Pass in late September, we had to wait until almost noon before the ice melted enough for us to attempt it. Your pictures bring back some great memories.
