Bachelor Party, September 20th - 21st

Held my bachelor party last weekend! You know I rarely do anything that doesn't involve two wheels (atleast when it's not snowing), so took a whole weekend to celebrate. John and Dan joined me for a full day's ride Saturday, while Ethan and Dan Pond met us in Salida that night. Great time at the bar and a surprisingly nice motel then a ride home via 285. Bluebird weather Saturday and some rain Sunday, fall colors were really fantastic.

Did about 400 miles on Saturday including some of my favorite roads. We hit Independence Pass, which is absolutely my #1 mountain pass within a day's ride. Had the GoPro running, enjoy! Full screen and 1080p available as always if you're interested.

Lunch was incredible.... Green chili smoked pulled pork mac and cheese special... Oh man! I really wish I could've brought the half I didn't eat home. If anybody needs a good BBQ joint in Basalt let me know. Thanks for lunch guys!

The whole group together in Salida

Dinner was more green chili, in the form of a smothered burger!! Can you tell what I like to eat when I can have whatever I want?!?

Sunday morning was wet and chilly, thankfully we didn't have a long ride home and only had to be back in time for the Broncos game that afternoon.

Gateway Inn and Suites in Salida, highly recommend this place! Especially if there happens to be a wedding reception going in in their meeting hall. *wink

Where is everybody? LOL, I'm still a morning person....

There's movement! John and Dan getting loaded up

Ethan and Dan P opted to roll up on the sidewalk

Did I mention the colors?? We stopped up on Kenosha Pass for some pictures.

This didn't turn out well, kinda had a dolt on the other end of the camera, but you get the idea. Me, Ethan, Dan P, John and Dan.

Ethan rolled his bike over for some pictures with a better background.... We all kinda ribbed him for wanting to take pics of his brand new bike (totally admitting we do the same).

Then I think everyone basically figured that was a really good idea! Line 'em up!

Dan P



Lots of stories that won't be shared, but never forgotten. Thank you gentlemen!

  1. What a great weekend! I can't say enough how much fun that was. Riding on Saturday through the colors over 400 miles was just mesmerizing. Thank you Ash for putting on such a great ride and fun bachelor party weekend. Thank you Dan K. for working your magic with the wedding party going on. Thank you Ethan for some great pictures and being able to catch up on things. Oh, Dan P...that picture of you on top of Kenosha Pass is a little scary but we all know you are just a big teddy bear! BTW guys, don't worry, I have disposed of any incriminating evidence I have.....hahahah
