I was up it in the cage, but when I was, there were numerous GoldWings coming up as I was coming down. It really made me wish I had convinced the wife to bring the bike along.

Our member Beenshot has been there on his yellow trike and he posted a video of it on youtube......

I was there with him but was having electrical problems with my 1500 the day they went to the top of Pikes Peak so I did not get to ride my wing up there.
This was in June 2011.

As an 8 year resident of the Springs, I have been up there...be warned, hard packed dirt road last 1/4 of way up. The temp can be anywhere from 25-45 degrees, windy, and weather can move in fast. Just be prepared.
Great Pics if your up there on a clear day!!!

There is no problem that can not be resolved with the correct amount of High Explosives.

I sure wish Jerry's bike would have been running that day. it is a nice ride to the top and the gravel portion of the road is hard packed enough to not give any trouble.



here is some pics

Drove to the top in October 2010. (08 wing) The section that is dirt is so hard packed the transition from pavement to dirt is seamless.
