Rocky Mountain Hi
« on: March 07, 2018, 03:42:42 pm »
I’m Brian and picked up a new to me 2012 S10 today nicely farkled with 13k miles.  I’m coming off a 2004 Vstrom 650 after 3 years and 40k fantastic miles.  Absolutely amazing upgrade.  After the first 40 miles I am very aware that speed will have to be monitored closely!  This thing likes to cruise at 20mph over the limit regardless of where it’s beimg ridden  ::025::   Anyway,  here’s a Rocky Mountian Hi from an S10 newbie  O0.

There is a light I'm trying to find between the water and the open sky, I know, that's where the wild winds blow.

congrats on your new ride, mtnlove, with a simple hello.....
comments with substance will be chastised by soulless pub riders lacking intelligence and imagination...
while calling out princess trolls will be met with the monomaniacal pruning shears of triggered snowflake censorship.....

Used to party in MSprings in the 70’s. Honda 550 hauled me all over there.  Great memories.

To the OP wish I had the 10 then.!

I love Manitou Springs.  Was just telling my lady I would love to live there if my life was centered down that way.

We like it here a lot.  Best part it is in the mountains and I can make a quick run and be on Shelf Road or Phantom Canyon road in no time.     Just really close to some really great riding.
