    Nicely done, Colorado has some of the most beautiful riding. I spend most of my time in the southwest region, picture below was taken last summer on my 2010 BMW F800GS. I will have to check it out the northern area sometime soon. How do the big blocks handle the on/ off road? I already ordered a set for my monkey.

    The big blocks do great! I've done 75mph on them street wise, and off road they are outstanding. I'll have a 10 mile off road vid up in the next few days. Cannot believe the Monkey made it on this trail I did. Let me know if you're ever up this way!

    beautiful pictures and nice trip. your mountains look a little like ours, in the Alps.
    here is the Mont Blanc, in the background. (photo taken from the col de la Colombiere).
    with a friend, we decided to go back there with his old Yamaha 125 RDX and me with the monkey. 500 km of mountain road and small departmental roads.
    we have time, we are retired.nothing is impossible. just remember what motorcycles we drove 45 years ago and what we did with them.

    congratulation: it is a beautiful and excellent bike.

    I am lucky to live on the German and Swiss border. the black forest is 10 km away.
    the Swiss Alps are 100 km away and Chamonix just 300 km.


    I let you imagine the roads I can use. mounting, turns still turns and always turns.

    Do you like the Big Blocks on the street riding? Good control and braking?
