A mammoth chrome plated moose. Yes, it is for sale. I'm sure the HOA would love to see that planted on my front lawn :laugh



Beautiful weather here today, in the upper 50's. I am on vacation at the moment too. How convenient :)

:stupid It would be worth it just to bother the HOA folks. I'm sure they don't (yet) have a clause about chrome moose:laugh

I have seen this sort of thing before, but never on this magnitude :lol

They tend not to age well. Rust starts around all the seams and eventually they tend to turn orange. Hmm. A large orange rusty moose in the front yard. Perfect! :devious

Not far from me - Franktown Colorado. It is on the gateway to the great nowhere, where roads like this beckon. I prefer the canyons and curves, but it is wintertime so the mountain roads are out of the equation. Sometimes it is just fun to run it out the limiter and keep her there for a spell, traveling at speeds suitable for large aircraft leaving the runway. Serious literbike country where more power is good. :devious

In any case, it is just good to bundle up and go for a ride in February :)

Jasen, you should head up to Craig's for an extended weekend. Some great riding on and off road (I'm sure craig could find a lonely CR if he looked:rolleyes). DFW to Denver is doable in a day:deal

Take this route for a bit more fun and/or your iba stamp (I've never filed for one, but some people like the sticker:O )

That'd be extremely hard to do in 24hrs by land. Possible, but very hard you'd have to speed a lot and not stop much if at all :laugh its an easy 2-day trip from your place though.

Ya DFW to Parker CO is doable in a day. I did Houston to Parker in a day. That was a bit of a stretch though. My employer would have had a heart attack if they knew I cannonball ran the company Camry that way. I took the next day off and submitted a non existent hotel bill to make the deception complete. They thought I was still driving. Call me a bad man. You do what you gotta do. Two beers after getting home, I felt like a new man. Amazing how beer calms the twitchy eyeballs and cures travel fatigue :lol

I've done the Dallas to Denver in a day thing several times now. Almost have to go through Denver to go skiing from Dallas. Usually go all the way through to Dillon. However, now that I have the hookup in Crested Butte, I don't go through Denver anymore. I'm still waiting for the Dallas to Denver highway to be built. I reckon you could do the drive in a little over 8 hours without too much speeding. Too bad I don't think it's ever going to happen, just a personal pipe dream of mine.

I've certainly given the extended weekend thing a thought. Too much going on right now to consider such an option...but maybe next year. Who knows. :D There's a group going to Colorado from the Two Wheel Texans site in June and I'm dying to go. But I think I'd rather a Duken trip. Get some on and off road fun in. :D

It would be dirt cheap too, free lodging at the DukeHotel. BP can vouch for the accommodations in my basement. They are pretty good :D

It is very nice! The DukeBasement is considerably larger and better equipped than my apartment in Cambridge I think:laugh
