St. Mary's Glacier / Kingston peak Colorado

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Here is a video I made of a recent ride.  I took my dual sport bike (Suzuki DR350) on a 70 mile ride around the St. Mary's Glacier area near Alice, Colorado.  The ride was about 10% pavement and about 90% dirt/rocks.  Temperature at 5,000 feet was about 95 but the temps at 13,000 were in the mid 50s.

NIce trip report.  Make me want to get a smaller dirt-worthy bike.

A dual sport is the way to go.  I have other dedicated dirt, race, play, trials and street bikes but the dual sport is the most versitile.  Now granted this trail is much easier on my modified for trail use KX250 cause its lighter and has more power, but good technique covers the compromises with this bike.

I wish, I had close to 50lbs on my back with tools, parts, water ,tripod and camera gear already.  I should make a rack for my motorcycle though for my skis somehow.
