    Coming back down into Ouray...



    ...did not stop at all in town. On the Ridgeway side of Ouray now...



    ...the curves are nice and the scenery fantastic! Rock face on the right and stream on the left.



    Uh-Oh...noticed my engine temp was higher than normal. Could not figure out why at first.

    Then I checked the coolant overflow tank and it was bone dry...



    In close to 100,000 miles of riding on Twin Cooled bikes I have never had to do anything at all with the coolant system. But this was just the start of a learning curve. I did a little online research and found some compatible coolant (no HD dealerships for many miles in any direction) along with a funnel, and filled up the coolant overflow tank to the appropriate level, then followed the bleed procedure.



    Back on the road and everything seems fine. Stopped for these deer to cross, and watched them go up the hillside.



    Mary and I near the lake where we're camped...



    ...Mary in front of a part of the lake that is dry right now. The red arrow is pointing to where we are camped, with the mountains in the background.



    Looks like fire in the hill near where we're camped...though there are some fires around, this is just the start of the sun dropping below the hill.



    A little later, the sunset has more color, the TG is really dusty, and the moon is full. What a great day of riding and exploring a bit.

    Today is a perfect day to ride the Million Dollar Highway...Both directions.* Also, a little ride around Silverton.

    Headed out from camp, looking off to the right...



    ...and then off to the left, catching the sun just right. The views are spectacular, and we're not even to the good part yet.



    What a view!

    I like the sign too. Narrow roads, 7-8% grades, steep drop-offs. They forgot "lots of curves". lol



    Here we go! 550, aka, Million Dollar Highway! The fun riding road and the views are equally stimulating.



    There are more than a few places where the road is being tempted to fall off into the canyon.



    Stunning- A look back...



    A couple of Trikes enjoying the road this morning!



    More in next post.

    MDH, Silverton & Molas Pass contnued-

    Wow!* My windshield & mirrors are dirty!* Does not take away from how much fun this road is!



    Mary in the mirror, and a look at the road carved into the side of the mountain.



    Ok, this is why I'm here! There are a lot of these "fun ahead" signs...



    ...hmmm, 15 mph? 35 mph sounds better!



    I know the scenery is fantastic, and I do appreciate it, BUT, we have no roads like this where we live, so I am thoroughly enjoying them!!!



    Another look back...yes, it is the same view as about 25 curves ago, just a bit further away.



    Lots more to come, as time allows for posting.

    Yup that is definitely the black CVO TG. The wheels and the striping give it away. A lady in our local H.O.G. chapter has one.

    Were y'all going to or coming from the trike gathering up north at the time of these photos? I think it was in Deadwood or some place near Sturgis.
