Summer Tour 2017


On June 6th, 2017, I embarked on another cross-country summer tour to Colorado. This year’s tour will also be much less ambitious than my previous tours have been. The primary destination was the Motorcycle Sport Touring Association’s national rally called STAR2017 at the Hotel Eleganté in Colorado Springs, Colorado between June 11th and 15th.

Once again I am riding my 2015 BMW R1200GS-Adventure motorcycle on this tour. During the tour my Spot Messenger device will send location updates to the Spotwalla web service to track my path and show my current location during my journey, as displayed in the following graphic.

You can also follow my current location by viewing my full Spotwalla track page at this link.

On June 9th, I arrived in Colorado Springs in the early afternoon. Except for the very first day of my journey in occasionally moderately heavy rain, the weather was excellent on Wednesday onward. The forecast for this area of Colorado promises very good riding weather over the coming week, and perhaps beyond.

That’s all I have at this time. Stay Tuned!
