Nice ride. Black Star was warm, Main Divide was nice.
Daytime started-Night time finished. Turned my lights on at the Doppler Ball. Cold at Main Divide. Good ride.
Early start 6:15 AM tried to beat the bugs but they got an early start too. Some knuckle head rode a motorcycle on Motorway and trashed it, please restore the barriers forest service.
Nice ride. I got an early start so not too many others out. TomG caught me just after Hagador Pk and slowed his pace so we could ride together. This was the first time I tried my bug net and it seems to help.
Nice ride. I got an early start and that helped with the heat. There was a Sportsmobile van show in Silverado Canyon, so I stopped to check it out.
