I had a Honda TransAlp for about two years when I lived in Louisiana...tons of fun! I sold it to buy my 40, which I sold to buy my 80.

I have to say...I regret selling my 40 WAY MORE than I do selling the TransAlp! I wanted something topless that wouldn't kill me in a crash! LA (that's Louisiana) drivers nearly put me 6' under. I rolled my 40 several times and walked away nearly unharmed. The trade was worth it!

These "Enduro" motos are lots of fun and I think CO would be better than Louisiana was.
Horribly Painted Moonglow '95 FZJ80 Has Some - Still Needs More!
White 2008 GX470 - Nearly Stock
"I drive an ECO-FRIENDLY FZJ80...It's got a salvage title which makes it a REPURPOSED/REUSED/RECYCLED vehicle. Therefore, don't mess with me when I park in the "Reserved for Green Vehicle" spots in Boulder!!!
