Good Luck Tour Colorado Springs to New Mexico

Leaving Colorado Springs was difficult for us. Not only did we find a new love for Colorado, but also our new friends at Lee Spirits Co. make sure we were sent out the night before. We plan our route like we did every morning, but today we had a list of 12 different highways that we needed to turn on to not head to the wrong Las Vegas. We head out and the now familiar Colorado miles were business as usual. We did our best to soaking in as much of the twists that we could, we couldn’t be sure which one would be our last before heading into New Mexico and over to Texas.  After our first hundred miles or...

Good Luck Tour Pikes Peak

I was particularly excited about today, today we are going to run up Pikes Peak, just outside of Colorado Springs. For me this was on the top of the list of must destinations for this trip. As a kid it was one of my favorite annual events with my dad to watch racers of all sorts race to the clouds at the legendary Pikes Peak Hill Climb. We traveled the short distance passing the Garden of the Gods to the base. Turning on our GoPros, we prepare our selves for 13 mile, 156 turn, 5,000 ft climb to the +14,000 ft summit. We set off in an excited manner hitting the first couple turns as only to come to a stop...

Good Luck Tour Colorado

The night before apparently we had gotten the last room in town so we felt pretty lucky to wake up rested in our not so awesome motel room in Cortez, Co. It had rained again the night before so it did put a little worry on us that we would have to get the rain gear out again. After checking the forecast it looked like we were going to be okay and the chance of rain was slim. We packed up and we were determined to make it across Colorado's width to Colorado Springs. My chain had stretched out a bit so I tightened it before departing today. The first hundred miles of the day is always easy and today was...

Good Luck Tour Snow!

We wake up rested and ready after a night of shenanigans and snow. The roads are looking somewhat dry and we head out to actually begin this motorcycle trip. "BlueBird" conditions    It was gorgeous out so we decided to hang for a bit and do some filming with the drone. Jacob Day had spent days with us to get some drone footage and he only had one clip so far. Here is the footage from Cedar Breaks, Utah We said goodbye to our friends and Dave and I headed east to start doing some miles and get out of the cold and wetness. Originally we planned to go more north into Utah but we decided to change course and...

Good Luck Tour Dirt Roads in Utah

photo Tom Laveuf After our first night in Brian Head, Utah we had a few hours break from the storm. We decided to do a little exploring on some dirt roads up a ski slope. I'm not going to lie, I didn't feel that great about taking a bike that has no business on the dirt. Especially this early on the trip, the last thing I wanted to do was screw up my bike doing something stupid.  photo Tom Laveuf Like most things that are a bad idea, it was a lot of fun. There were a couple of four runners in the garage, so the crew hoped on those and we headed up into the hills. Everything was going...
