100,000 foot ride
« on: August 05, 2013, 04:13:10 pm »
Did the 100,000 foot ride this weekend and I'm sad  :-\ disappointed I didn't see another Connie to keep me company. 11 Mountain Passes 446 miles in 8 hours makes for a PERFECT CONNIE riding day.

Headed that way in two weeks. Sounds like I have some passes to check out.
Got any road numbers to go with those passes or can I find them pretty easy on google?

I didn't have time to spool on my PR3's.  They also shutdown the online registration, which left me to just showing up and hoping for an open slot.  I've ridden this 3 or 4 times in the past... and it's always filled up... so I wasn't going to ride down and be SOL.  8)

Glad you had a great time... a guy I work with (Blackbird rider and his Blackbird riding buddy) also rode it for the first time.  They both really enjoyed it too.  :)
