Where am I? ..a game of geographical savvy
« on: April 04, 2012, 09:40:56 PM »
Here is a little game I just saw on Adventure rider. I will start off with posting a pic of some place in Colorado with a pic of my bike, guess the place right, and it will be your turn to post a pic. Get it? Guess it right, then you get to post the next pic.

Lets keep this going, it will be a great way to maybe see some new scenery we have not yet seen. If this is popular, I'll make this thread a sticky.

Here ya go:

Looking east from town.....

74' Yamaha RD350 "The Little Hot Rod"...currently under the knife.
02' Aprilia Capo Nord "The Mighty Ape"
93' Kawasaki KZ1000 Police cafe' "Snoopy"


Have a good and Godly day, for what lasting value is a good day if it is not also a Godly day?

Just when I thaught of a good hint, 2slow guessed it! Yup, it is Telluride, and the saddle you are looking above the mighty Aprilia is the exit of Black Bear Pass.

And just for extra credit, my hint was going to be: This is where an infamous bank robber got his start....

Your up 2slow, post up a pic  8)

Doh, you gave it away too early, this was gonna be good! I think since George was closest, he should get to post the next one. I am sure some of us now will be taking a trip to Gateway to explore that road.  8)

Remember, whoever guesses the place gets to post the next pic.

The last was a little hard and I think we need a mix.  I've made this easy to keep the thread going.
