September 2005- Tami's Mom and her uncle Mike are visiting from Missouri. Mike hasn't ridden for many years but still has his motorcycle endorsement. I told him to bring a helmet, and we'd get him back in the saddle again. After a few days nearby, I was able to take the day off, and Mike, Jasen Mommer and I do a day ride on one of my favorite loops- south through the San Luis Valley, over Cochetopa Pass, to Gunnison, then back over Monarch Pass. The weather is perfect and the roads empty. We headed to Saguache where we made a quick fuel stop. Then west to Cochetopa Pass. Here is Mommer running lead.
