Yesterday was a long day, but well worth it. I am a member of the Blue Knights LE MC and my chapters charity of choice this year (usually every year ) is the Special Olympics. One of the things LE in Colorado does is the S.O. Torch run, but there is some vast plains areas between Denver and Kansas. So we did a ride from the east edge of metro Denver (Aurora) to Limon. But in true "good day to ride fashion" we took the Loooooooong way! 300 miles, a great mom&pop lunch, and a tank and half of gas later, I had to go to work. It was worth the early rise and the late start of shift request.
