Vacation Is Getting Closer

For the first time this year I'm excited about riding. Donna and I are going to Colorado in August and it's close enough to feel it now. We are heading up to Salida where we have a gorgeous place rented for 3 days and nights. Donna is meeting some friends and they are going to a music festival headlined by Mumford and Sons. That frees me up to go ride where I want solo for 2 or maybe 3 days! I have a couple of abandoned bridges I want to find but mainly I'm just going to ride as long as my body will allow me. After the 3 days at Salida, we are stopping by Royal Gorge then heading up to Colorado Springs and go up Pikes Peak. 

I need to put a Dunlop 606 front tire on before going and replece my battery. Without a kick start on my bike, and the battery being over 2 years old, I don't want to take the chance way out in the middle of nowhere.
