150k+ miles on different bikes, never "cleaned" a chain. Slap some gear oil down every 600 miles or so...the good O-ring chains last 22k-25k miles...then replace sprockets and chain...rinse and repeat @ the next 23k miles..
If anybody is coming up through Denver or Colorado Springs we can hook up and ride in together to Montrose, I am sure I can cook up a great route there on the fly Tuesday 14th.
I'll be in Denver on Monday night for the Iron Maiden concert. What time will you and Bill leave Colorado Springs? Or, can you suggest a time and town for me to join up with you?
Which reminds me that if anyone is coming in from the east on Sunday night, let me know. I plan on jetting across Kansas from the early AM on Monday to make my concert that evening. It'll probably be an I-70 cannonball.
Gentlemen, I plan on heading west from Panama, NE Friday or Saturday the 10 or 11th to visit an old friend in the Buena Vista area . I would love to try and meet up with guys and ride in to Montrose on Tuesday. Thanks, Mike
I am suspecting that we will be coming in south of Buena Vista on 50, so maybe a good place to meet you will be in Salida. That will be south of you and a slight back track east on 50. There is also a gas station where 285 runs into 50 that could work. It is also possible that we will take 24 to 285, which will put us right near Buena Vista to meet you.
Miguel will let us know what time he is leaving the Springs with Lee. Once we know that we will be able to give you a decent ETA and meeting location.
The thing that amazed me is that side by side the 7th generation looks quite a bit smaller overall compared to the 6th generation. Honda hid those extra 400cc very well and compacted the design wherever possible.
Miguel showed me every great road in this state, the great places to eat along the way, and the name of each mountain range we ride.
I was more than happy to pledge, but honestly I thought it would never really happen. Pledges sort of peaked early and then were slow to grow. The word came out though that this was real and it was time to honor your pledge. VFRD not only met the current listed pledge total but far exceeded the previous pledge level.
Miguel and I have logged many of thousands miles together and I can tell you guys and gals that this is as real as it gets regarding his passion for bikes, riding, and everything that comes with that experience. Oh ya, he loves the VFR line too!
We have a group ride planned on Monday to ride some awesome Colorado roads. I have no interest in riding his bike, it is all about the ride and laying down the miles on some great roads with great friends. VFRD made this next ride happen with Miguel's new 1200, and for that I thank VFRD, what a great group of people.
