I spent June 13-20th with my brother-in-law Justin and father-in-law Terry riding across Colorado on our motorcycles. We loaded the motorcycles on my trailer and left Friday evening, June 13th after work and towed them 18 hours to Colorado Springs where we spent the night at Justin’s cousin, Travis & Britta’s house. From there, we drove on the bikes to Pagosa Springs to spend a couple of days with Justin’s family and in-laws before hitting the road and spending 3 more days on the road en route back to Colorado Springs and then finally home. In total, we put on 1,027 miles on the motorcycles and another nearly 2,000 miles in the Explorer towing the motorcycles to Colorado and back. All in all, we had a great trip and many fond memories that will no double be talking about for years to come.
Anyone interested in the route we took, here are the maps for our routes that Justin planned out using Google Maps:
- Day 1 (Sun, June 15): Colorado Springs to Pagosa Springs
- Day 2 (Tue, June 17): Pagosa Springs to Hotchkiss
- Day 3 (Wed, June 18): Hotchkiss to Fairplay
- Day 4 (Thu, June 19): Fairplay to Colorado Springs
