Without the Colorado State Patrol, we’d all be elsewhere this week. Special thanks to the Colorado State Patrol for its continuing magnificent cooperation and vital assistance. The highly-talented Colorado State Patrol motorcycle officers accompanying you, aka “The Motors,” work for your protection. You’ll be amazed at their riding skills and by how much they can help you. They can warn you of road hazards such as wandering cattle, slick surfaces, and accidents. When following them, watch for their hand signal to let you know it’s safe to pass them. If you’re stopped by the side of the road, remember to give them the thumbs-up if you’re OK or the thumbs-down if you need help. Get to know The Motors, they’re great guys!
