I've done some great back roads in CO and UT with GSs and I'm with JamesC. If you think you're a slower rider, you should work less in the twisties and more on super slab as suggested. If you sit at 80-90 MPH, the blast will work you. You can do it but you won't love it. Went from ABQ NM to Logan UT in a day once. Enjoyed parts of it, not most of it.

Those GSs have some range, consider bringing some gas. I've used my backup gallon a couple of times since coming west. Enjoy...

Would be like you riding a bicycle with a 3 year old on a plastic Big Wheel.
That route is not as troublesome as you might think. Mostly gravel roads with some rocks in spots.

Thanks!
Sorry missed this. I did roughly this route to Grand Lake:

We were going to do more in Colorado but I think I wore the guys I was with out and there were several fires messing with our route. We took a northern route back through Rocky Mountain National Park up north to 14 to 40 to get out of Colorado. Ended up in Vernal and accidentally did the flaming gorge into Wyoming the next day (not a bad mistake). Then we basically took 50 all the way across Nevada and used 4 to cross the Sierras before slabbing it back home.
