We stopped for a break at the confluence of the N.Platte and the S. Platte. It was a gorgeous day and everyone was out enjoying the weather. I was SOO happy to be out. My bike felt great, which surprised me since I hadn’t really ridden it all winter. Our new KLR was awesome! Eli rode it most the day (though I don’t think he was as happy about it as I was)
Before our trip out, we stopped in Golden to meet my mom sip coffee and eat breakfast, while the air warmed up outside. I’ve ridden so many times in the cold because I’ve needed to, that there is no way I’m going to when we are joy riding!
We ended our great ride in Woodland Park, a town near Colorado Springs, with The grand Pike Peak towering over it. Its quite spectacular coming into this town and seeing this! And…..we stopped at a restaurant and had delicious French Onion Soup, with a toasted cheesy top with fresh homemade bread. Yum! We both agreed, that another trip for a bowl of this delicious soup was in store…Jeff, ya in?
Oh Darn! We have to drive down that beautiful road on our motorcycles again :-). Life is rough, I tell ya!
