Welcome to MotoVenture. I'll be posting videos, photos from my journeys on a 2011 Suzuki V-Strom 650 ABS that my wife and kids have affectionately named, “Stallion". MotoVentures stands for the ventures (“a journey or undertaking”) that I will be taking on this beautiful motorcycle.
After eating lunch right by the river, we decided that we had plenty of time and could enjoy walking around Salida for a bit. This was a fun chance for me to use my little Fuji 23mm lens and just have fun grabbing some random images!
I could spend all day here!
As I was walking around I heard some lively music in the distance. It turns out that Salida was having their Oktoberfest that day!
I enjoyed the German music for a little bit and then headed back down to the river to enjoy the sights and sounds. I’ve been to the top of that hill (above the S) and the view is amazing!
I found a great spot to sit and enjoy the view!
About that time, some of our group found my hiding spot – thanks to Scott for these pictures!
On October 7th (I know – I’m WAY behind!), I enjoyed the last organized group ride of the season with my friends from Black Forest Riders. We were fortunate enough to take a ride over to Salida, Colorado!
Underneath gorgeous blue Colorado skies, I headed off to meet the group near downtown Colorado Springs – what an amazing day to ride!
For the final group ride of the year, we had six bikes and seven friends together
Jeff told a shocked Scott that any misbehaving would result in a smackdown…
And we’re off!
But not before a quick selfie…
We took a butt break about an hour and a half later north east of Canon City – what a beautiful day!
Even Stallion wanted a picture (with a distant cousin in the background)
Two selfies in one day? Don’t worry…my GoPro and I come in peace!
