Weird Tacos and Horsetooth Reservoir

Yesterday, Sunday, I rode up to the town of Fort Collins....home of UniquAfe Rides, the dealer I work with for all things relating to my URAL sidecar rig.

Being Sunday however, the dealership was closed.  The intent instead was to visit with a co-worker at the location of the Snowbank Brewery near the intersection of CO14 and Lemay Avenue.  Today was the "debut" day for her husband's food truck business.

Angela D, is one of the 25 employees in the company I am part of:  Her husband, John, has opened his own business in the form of an independent food truck specializing in tacos.  I had John's "Classic" breakfast taco and it was delicious!

That's Angela by the door.

After eating and chatting, I left them to their customers and headed off towards Horsetooth Reservoir as it has been quite some time since I've ridden it's steep waterside roadways.

The sun was out, the day would warm into the low 60s so folks were out enjoying the great weather.

 To the right is one of the two big dam roadways one can ride on top
of while enjoying the scenic views provided by the reservoir.

You can see in the distance, at lower elevation, part of the
town of Fort Collins.  I get the feeling if the dams that created 
this reservoir ever fail, there's going to be one flooded town below!

I used the I-25 super slab to both get to and return from Fort Collins, about two hours of steady riding at Ural speed.

It was good to visit, if only briefly, with one of my's employees all work 100% from home so its not like we all see each other during the work week!

Where'd the snow go?

Charlie6 said...

no snow in the lowlands....hopefully still some in the mountains. It was over 67F here today....

Richard M said...

That was my question too. Shocked at the lack of snow in the middle of January.

Charlie6 said...

RichardM, sadly, all the snow is gone from the front's still up in the mountains however.

Did the vacuum ports and balancing the carbs change your fuel milage any? Any affect on highway speed?

Weird food trucks... Bobskoot loved them.

Nice temps you get there. Ours are still below 40F.

I am so looking forward to some riding weather to get out and about on my scoot.

What? No snow? Must be that balmy weather.

The food truck sounds tasty. They are popular in Portland but pretty much banned here in Corvallis.

Food trucks are always interesting. We have a lot in Texas. No snow at this time of year does seem strange for your posts.

Charlie6 said...

SonjaM, I didn't know that about Bobskoot, thanks!

The food was indeed tasty Trobairitz, interesting that they're banned where you are.

Thomas Osburn, these folks came from Austin, TX! As to no snow, it does seem weird eh?

AZ HD, mileage was about 35mpg but that's about where it was before...the rig pulled nice and strong afterwards but I attribute that to the throttle bodies being balanced.
