Default Rode the Continental Divide - 25Sept10

Took a ride this afternoon up on the Idaho / Montana border. Griz ran perfectly the whole time. Base was 6000ft and saw a height of 8850ft. Gas guage was showing 1/8 to 1/4 when I got back.. but only took 2.7 Gal of fuel to fill it? (went 58.2miles) I guess the gas guage is a bit skewed?

Had a blast and will go back again and again. Many different trails in the area.

When I saw this I just had to stop and take a few pics. It was the shape and scale of a roller coaster.

Looks awesome. We are truly blessed to live where we live. Glad you are getting out and riding your Grizz. Gotta love EFI when you are riding high altitudes.
