Where Was Bill?

Last year I rode more than 11,000 miles on my summer jaunt.  But 2010 was a chance to take several shorter rides--circumnavigation of San Francisco Bay, Yosemite and the biggie of the summer, a 3,792 ride through the Rockie Mountains, then a trip through Wyoming to Cody and over Beartooth Highway.  Beartooth is one of those famous motorcycling roads full of switchbacks and altitude.

One of thrilling parts of this trip was a ride up to the top of Mt. Evans in Colorado.  This is the highest paved road in North America and starts where most roads end--8,000 feet.  In 14 miles it climbs to more than 14,000 feet.  It's the most technical and difficult road I've ever ridden.
