Galen Diehl T800XC-VFR800-XR650L-WR250R-MSTA-TVRThere are two things to aim at in life: first, to get what you want; and, after that, to enjoy it. Only the wisest of humans achieve the second. Logan Pearsall Smith
Going UP the Poughkeepsie Gulch Trail in Colorado on a WR250R
This trail is very steep. It goes from 10,143 to 12,546 feet in about 4 miles.
This trail is probably the most technically challenging trail in the Ouray area. It connects Mineral Creek on one end to California Gulch and Hurricane Pass on the other end.
It also has a huge Rock Obstacle in the middle called the wall. Unfortunately my batteries died before getting to that part.
Wore me out and made my poor old shoulders hurt just watching it... Nice video though... Thanks for posting
Ok... if I EVER say I'm gonna ride up there... someone... Please shoot me! Damn, Well, besides the fact that I don't have a bike to take on that... the Super Tenere' would be... well stupid there!!
Glad you all made it alive and had fun too!
Nice. Gotta love those Colorado grrapefruit sized rocks!

Criminy! I have much more to learn before launching into something like that. Randy Logan & I went across Ophir Pass after STAR. That was a white-knuckle event for me, and it pales in comparison to this.
