Ah chrome, that'll make it work better...The 1600 is a nice bike though. I have an 800 Classic, and they are reliable bikes, but believe it or not, I hate chrome.

Hell, you do the Ton on 285, nobody will notice!



You might need to stay out of the left lane...

But Rainier goes down near sea level and the Colorado Mts. only drop to about 7,000 ft. They look puny next to Rainier.

Ah..good old Fairplay. Where I would stop on my motojaunts for a Buffalo burger. What's the itsy=bitsy place up the road where a former LA Chip has/had a store/restaurant/post office. Something like Washington? Spent many hours listening to him share the lore of the Chips while eating his wife's outrageously delicious sweet rolls. Went through Fairplay last on my 2000 in 48 Ironbutt practice. From there to Manassa, rarely under the ton.

I probably would have agreed with you about 15 years ago, but I've become really intriqued with what I could do to simply improve my bike's looks but doing it with chrome. My wife is an artist and the two of us have come up with simple chrome improvements without all the conchos and leather hanging all the way to the ground. It's a really clean look and not gaudy at all. I use to like simple, black and straightforward but with all the new accessories out there, you can do quite a lot. And, by the way, no, I really don't think my 1600 Vulcan Classic has improved it's performance because of my simple chrome improvements. LOL

Yeah you might have to get out of the way of all the cellphone chatting, latte consuming SUV drivers driving bumper to bumper at about a buck o five.

Default Colorado Geography

By the way I fought forest fires in Colorado for 6 seasons idiot. 3 seasons as a heliattack (helicopter firefighting team) foreman. Spent 2 seasons doing airrecon as well. So I pretty sure I have flown over more terrain than you ever could cover on a cruiser.

City boy. Don't you live in Maryland...
