    Hey Steve,

    Almost a year to a day when I flew into the springs, got picked up at the airport, stopped at my friends house in Woodland Park, went to fish the South Platte in Deckers, next stop, the Dream Stream near South Park, then to the Arkansas near Buena Vista, then over Monarch or in warmer weather Cottonwood Pass to Gunnison/Almont/Crested Butte, ski for two days then fish the Gunnison, Taylor and East rivers for two days, then finally fly back from Gunnison.

    I'm about to make that same trip again in about 2 weeks and can't wait, so it was great to see your video.

    Cold ride

    Very nice, thanks for sharing
    Am jealous !!

    Awaiting my first BMW (R12RT), prior rode Harley Ultra and own heated gloves
    Do the heated grips really work ? Not cold top of hand with wind ?
