Motorcycling through the Rockies, July, 2003

Travel route

This year's trip was planned to coincide with the Top of the Rockies BMW motorcycle rally in Paonia, Colorado. Compared with last year's motorcycle trip, this one was a bit longer (4,000 miles) and traversed 8 western states in 10 days.

This ride covered almost all new territory from my previous motorcycle trips, with a good mix a desert (fast) and mountain (curvy) roads. Included in the route were two of my favorite National Parks--Yosemite and Yellowstone. Unfortunately we ran out of time and couldn't visit my third favorite--Glacier Natl. Park. Next year...

This trip took place with a couple of different riding friends. On the way out to Paonia it was Rock, Elliott and I. Elliott headed back after Paonia, and Rock and I met up with Dave in Denver, and we rode up through Wyoming. Dave headed back home, and Rock and I finished the trip. And I got a (too brief) opportunity to visit my Aunt and Uncle in Buena Vista, Colorado.

The links below offer some insights and photos of the areas we covered on this trip.
