John shared a website about “10 Colorado Motorcycle Rides” [https://www.colorado.com/articles/10-colorado-motorcycle-rides](www.colorado.com/articles/10-colorado-motorcycle-rides)
John shared some hacks, tips and tricks:
For greasy hands, use Dawn dish soap and a finger brush. Maybe add sugar or baking soda. Stay dry to stay warm! Use a set of latex gloves for wet weather under your riding gloves. Use a trash bag under your jacket to keep dry and warm. Newspaper in your boots to help them dry out. Cuff vents to increase airflow to keep cool, $24. For gassy hands, use Dawn and lemon juice, maybe some sugar too.
John showed pictures of the new BSA Gold Star, 650cc, water-cooled, 45-bph, single. About $8500-10K. [https://www.cycleworld.com/story/motorcycle-news/2022-bsa-gold-star-first-look-preview/](www.cycleworld.com/story/motorcycle-news/2022-bsa-gold-star-first-look-preview/).
