Shelf road, CO
Has anyone ridden this road? I ride a 04 GSA 1150. Good bit of dual-sport experience. Is this too much bike for this road or should I get out the old KLR. Thanks in advance.

Shelf Rd Colorado
This is one of my favorite get-aways from Colorado Springs.
I've done many-a-lap here and more than once 2-up. Here's a ride report from 2009 I took on my 1200.
You can also make a loop out of this and Phantom Canyon rd.
As with any trip to a scenic road - ride your own ride....

cooney, you will have no woes or issues with the Shelf Road on your 1150GS. It is a wonderful road/ride.
Thanks for the info. I was there around the first of June but played it safe after a lady in Cripple Creek talked me out of riding it with the GS. Damn! Should have tryed it. Can't wait to get back there again. Anything to get away from this heat in Louisiana.
So, if the GS will do it ok , how about an RT ??
