Unhappy Lightning kills motorcyclist in Denver!

Holy cow! This strikes close to home (my old home). I used to travel that stretch several times per week.

Yes. Sad and unfortunate. Local news shows the gash in the pavement where the bolt struck as well.


Blantant change of subject...
Have a group ride over Independence Pass on Saturday. Want to come along? . How's the riding in the Sierra's?

This might bring back memories... http://www.farson.com/video/6passes.wmv from a recent group ride.

BTW, several of us the other day were recalling the Left Hand Canyon ascent last year when you glued yourself to the bumper of a Lotus as he tried to leave you behind .

Hi Steve! Wish I could make it, but will be on my first group ride here in the Sierra Saturday morning. Should be very interesting, as it will be with a mix of bikes and styles (cruisers, sport, and tourers). I'm not sure how this is going to work out, but I'll pull the rip-cord and head-out on my own if the ride styles don't mesh well.

I'll be in Paonia mid-July for the Top o' the Rockies rally. . . might try to head east from Paonia for a ride over Independence Pass that week. Be great if we could meet in the middle somewhere!

Would be nice to connect in Paonia. Alas, I'm overseas that week. Have a good trip to CO. Check in sometime.
