Dodging the Roadkill: Colorado

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyColorado Springs, CO – I have always wanted to take a trip out West.  This year I got my chance when I was invited to join a Tennessee couple who venture here each year.

Stephen and Rosemary Walker are a true motorcycle couple.  They both love to ride, and through a mutual friend, we connected and they invited me to ride along.

It took me two days to arrive in Colorado Springs.  I traveled through Paducah Kentucky, to St. Louis MO, and on to Columbia MO, before a severe thunderstorm caused a 90 minute delay.

After resuming the trip, I made Topeka Kansas for the night.
